2009 MAR 9 -- Research and Markets(http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/dc70a2/the_cardiovascular) has announced the addition of the "The Cardiovascular Market Outlook to 2013: Competitive Landscape, Global Market Analysis and Pipeline Analysis" report to their offering.
The cardiovascular therapy area spans a range of treatment classes including anti-hypertensives, anti-dyslipidemics, anti-thrombotics, hematological preparations and cardiac therapies. Each sub-therapy area is facing a different set of issues and challenges, such as the current generic threat for dyslipidemics and competition from novel therapies in thrombosis. Leading products in these sub-therapy areas have proven to be significant growth drivers for Big Pharma, such as Pfizer's Lipitor, Sanofi's Plavix and Lovenox, and Amgen's Aranesp. The recent emergence of smaller players and increased competition from generics has prompted leading players to engage in alliances and agreements for key drugs to keep pace with the changing market landscape.
'The Cardiovascular Market Outlook to 2013: Competitive landscape, global market analysis and pipeline analysis' is a new report published by Business Insights that provides comprehensive coverage of every class of drugs across major cardiovascular indications. Detailed insights into recent key events and future market leaders are also provided, in addition to epidemiological analysis and forecasts for major products over the 2007-13 period. With coverage of over 90% of the total market for cardiovascular products, this report profiles the underlying trends and factors driving the market and identifies the most promising areas of potential growth.

Some key findings from this report...
Anti-hypertensives were the highest selling sub-therapeutic category in 2007, with global sales of $52.9bn. Norvasc was the leading anti-hypertensive, with sales of $3.3bn.
The global market for anticoagulants will experience significant activity over the next two years with the introduction of new drugs including Boehringer Ingelheim's Pradaxa/Rendix, Bayer- Schering/J&J's Xarelto, BMS/Pfizer's apixaban and Eli Lilly/Daiichi's Effient.
Crestor has been steadily gaining market share and positive JUPITER trial results will help to further improve its market position. The positive trial data is likely to result in recommended cholesterol treatment goals becoming lowered, and Crestor will be well positioned to capture more patients and expand the market.
GlaxoSmithKline's (GSK) acquisition of Reliant Pharma will contribute to GSK having the highest growth amongst the leading players through to 2013. The addition of key drugs such as Lovaza to GSK's portfolio will drive this growth.
The anti-arrhythmic market is expected to remain a relatively small opportunity, as drug therapy has significant limitations. Multaq from Sanofi-Aventis may become the therapeutic standard in the first-line treatment of chronic atrial fibrillation.

Key issues examined in this report...
Leading cholesterol-lowering drugs show declining sales. Patent expirations have been off-setting positive drivers of growth including recent trial results that support aggressive LDL lowering in broader patient populations. The availability of generic simvastatin has resulted in increased therapeutic substitution and declining brand share.
Stalling growth of leading hypertension drugs. Angiotensin receptor blockers or ARBs have become the most prescribed antihypertensive class. However after several years of gaining market, growth in the branded ARB category appears to be stalling. A number of studies have shown ARBs to be no more effective than generic ACE inhibitors, most recently the ONTARGET study published in April, 2008
Novel oral anti-thrombotics threaten leading drugs. Novel drugs in the thrombosis market pipeline are expected to strongly compete with the current market leader Lovenox . The new drugs are orally formulated and are expected to substantially expand the market. Trial data has shown these drugs to be more efficacious without presenting a huge inrease in the risk of bleeding.
