Alzheimer's Disease Therapeutics Market to 2019 - Early Stage Innovation Points to Disease Modifying Therapies and Market Transformation





LONDON, Jan. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- just published a new market research report:

Alzheimer's Disease Therapeutics Market to 2019 - Early Stage Innovation Points to Disease Modifying Therapies and Market Transformation

Alzheimer's Disease Therapeutics Market to 2019 - Early Stage Innovation Points to Disease Modifying Therapies and Market Transformation


GBI Research has released its pharmaceuticals report, "Alzheimer's Disease Therapeutics Market to 2019 - Early Stage Innovation Points to Disease Modifying Therapies and Market Transformation". The Alzheimer's Disease (AD) market is characterized by a lack of products with strong disease-modifying properties and a number of high-profile product failures in late stages of development over recent years. In addition, recent or impending patent expiries for all of the four currently marketed products and a late-stage pipeline with limited-to-moderate prospects are expected to impede growth over the next few years. In the medium-term future, the market is expected to be characterized by substantial generic competition and overall decline. However, the current development pipeline shows signs of meaningful innovation, although the vast majority of these products are currently in the early stages of development. Despite one of the highest drug attrition rates across the industry, a number of innovative and potentially disease-modifying therapeutics are likely to enter the market and translate recent insights into the etiology of AD combined with an earlier therapeutic intervention into better products, which will begin to transform the AD market towards the end of the decade.


- A brief introduction to AD etiology, pathogenesis, diagnosis, and treatment regimes
- Profiling of the marketed products in the AD market, including analysis of their safety, efficacy, treatment patterns, and strengths and weaknesses
- Comprehensive review of the pipeline for AD therapies, including individual analysis of a number of late-stage pipeline drugs that are likely to enter the market during the forecast period. The pipeline is analyzed on the basis of phase distribution, molecule type, and molecular target.
- Additional in-depth analysis of pipeline drug clinical trials, analyzed by phase, molecule type, trial size, trial duration and program failure rate, for each molecule type and mechanism of action
- Multi-scenario forecast data for the market to 2019, taking into account how it will be affected by the introduction of new drugs, the expiry of key patents on current drugs, and changes in disease epidemiology across the key developed markets of the US, Japan, Germany, the UK, France, Italy and Spain
- Discussion of the drivers of and barriers to market growth
- Analysis of the licensing and co-development deals landscape

Reasons to buy

- Understand the different levels of AD therapies, from early-stage or mild AD to severe AD
- Understand the vast scope of the pipeline, including which molecule types and mechanisms of action are prominent
- Observe trends in terms of clinical trial duration and size among clinical phases and molecule types, and use the clinical trial failure rate analysis to assess the risk profiles of current and/or future developmental programs for AD therapeutics
- Assess the potential clinical and commercial impact of current late-stage pipeline molecules on the AD therapeutics market

Traditional approaches for driving innovation are now woefully inadequate for keeping up with the breadth of disruption and change facin...
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds.

We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data...
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability. In his session at DevOps Su...
As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial. However, IoT also creates the need for petabyte scale storage of data from millions of devices. A new type of Storage is required which seamlessly integrates robust data analytics with massive scale. These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningf...
