Lucentis Macular Edema and Degeneration Treatment Market Analysis and Forecast to 2023.

DALLAS, March 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- adds "Lucentis (Macular Edema and Macular Degeneration) - Forecast and Market Analysis to 2023" market research report provides detailed information on Lucentis including product description, safety and efficacy profiles as well as a SWOT analysis.

Lucentis (ranibizumab) is an anti-VEGF-A monoclonal antibody (mAb) fragment developed by Genentech/Roche. It is derived from the larger parent molecule, bevacizumab, which is another anti-VEGF drug marketed as Avastin by Genentech/Roche/Chugai. It was hoped that Lucentis, as a lower-molecular-weight, humanized fragment of an immunoglobulin G1 (IgG1) mAb, would result in improved retinal penetration over Avastin, and therefore, confer superior efficacy.

Macular Edema is a condition where fluid accumulates on the macula, leading to vision impairment or in severe cases even vision loss. The three main types of macular edema are diabetic macular edema (DME), and macular edema following either a central or branch retinal vein occlusion (ME-CRVO and ME-BRVO). Age-related macular degeneration (AMD) is a painless eye condition which leads to gradual, irreversible, loss of central vision, and is one of the leading causes of blindness among people aged 50 and over in the developed world. Currently the macular edema and age-related macular degeneration markets are dominated by the use of anti-VEGF monotherapy, however, in recent years, corticosteroid implants have been reaching the ME market which could challenge the stronghold these drugs have in this sector. The AMD market will see the arrival of the first therapies to treat dry age-related macular degeneration, fulfilling a huge unmet need in the management of this retinal disease, and these first-in-class therapies will strongly drive the market growth over the next ten years. The launch of wet age-related macular degeneration adjunctive therapies will also see a significant change in the treatment of AMD patients and have a positive impact on the market growth.
