Availability of co-pay assistance programs: a major market driver

Therapeutics are generally sold at a remarkably higher cost price to
provide better profit margins for the drugs. This is done to encourage
the vendors as they incur high development cost for the drug. Patients
might pay a certain cost, known as co-pay, for the therapeutic and the
insurer covers the remaining cost. In several instances, the burden of
co-pay has been taken over by the vendors. Such co-pay assistance has a
two-pronged impact on the market. It helps in increasing the patient
adherence to approved therapies by reducing the adoption of inexpensive
alternatives. It also increases the sales volume of therapeutics.

Emergence of novel treatment targets: emerging market trend

At present, lactulose and rifaximin are the most commonly used
therapeutics to treat HE. Treatments targeting ammonia production and
removal are also emerging in the market. Inflammation is an important
factor that is associated with the progression and development of HE.
Therefore, there are various treatments that target inflammation. Some
of the most recent approaches include the use of probiotics, albumin
administration, and dialysis.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on infectious
and rare diseases
, “Probiotics reduce the levels of ammonia
and endotoxin in the blood by introducing a microorganism into the body.
They also reduce inflammation and oxidative stress in hepatocytes. Thus,
they can be used in the treatment of HE. Probiotics also provide
secondary protection against further episodes through the replacement of
urease-producing species with non-urease-producing species. Hence, the
emergence of novel treatment targets will drive the growth of the global
HE therapeutics market during the forecast period.”

encephalopathy therapeutics
