Market for Enzyme Inhibitors Faces Generic Competition, Payer Pushback

Posted by Laurie L. Sullivan on Jan 16, 2018 10:00:00 AM

Enzyme_Inhibitor copy.jpgThe development of novel enzyme inhibitors has led to effective therapeutic options for diseases that were once considered difficult to treat. A newly updated study by BCC Research finds that approvals of new molecular entities will drive the global market for enzyme inhibitors to $179.9 billion by 2022. Enzyme inhibitors offer therapeutic options for myriad illnesses, including HCV, HIV, cancer, gastrointestinal disease, cardiovascular disease, inflammatory disorders, rheumatoid arthritis, neurological disorders (depression, Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease) and diabetes.
