Physicians’ Opinions Survey on FDA’s Bydureon Approval

2012-03-06

Report Description

Physicians were asked to assess their impressions of Bydureon in terms of efficacy, safety, tolerability, expected use, and other important factors. Key questions are broken down by specialty or familiarity to highlight difference in physician perceptions

Highlights

Datamonitor anticipates that the initial enthusiasm will ultimately be muted once physicians gain experience with the drug. Nevertheless, a once-weekly antidiabetic agent clearly represents an attractive option for type 2 diabetes patients, and physicians expect the drug to be a welcome addition to their armamentarium.

Global Epinephrine Autoinjector Market 2015-2019

Epinephrine, commonly known as adrenaline, is a hormone secreted by the medulla of the adrenal gland and circulated through the bloodstream. It acts as a neurotransmitter that responds to brain signals. These signals trigger responses such as threat, excitement, danger, emotion, and stress, which stimulate the adrenal gland to secrete epinephrine in response to the changes in the body. Adrenaline prepares the body to fight against anaphylactic shock that occurs due to allergic reactions, cardiac arrest, asthma, and superficial bleeding. Chemically synthesized epinephrine is usually administered to patients suffering from the above symptoms because it stimulates the heartbeat, increases blood pressure, relaxes involuntary muscles, and constricts small blood vessels. Epinephrine is also used......

Global Small Cell Lung Cancer Therapeutics Market 2015-2019

Cancer occurs when, after cell transformation, normal cells grow and multiply without control. Lung cancer is a common cause of mortality and morbidity in developed and developing countries. Smoking is considered to be the major cause of small cell lung cancer, though it also occurs in non-smokers. Lung cancer can be categorized into two types: non-small cell lung cancer and small cell lung cancer. Small cell lung cancer constitutes roughly 10-15 percent of all diagnosed cases of lung cancer. Small cell lung cancer is categorized into two types: small cell carcinoma and combined small cell carcinoma. It can be further classified into two stages: limited-stage small cell lung cancer and extensive-stage small cell lung cancer. Small cell lung cancer is caused by smoking tobacco, or second ha......

HER-2 Positive Breast Cancer Market in the US 2015-2019

Breast cancer is characterized by uncontrolled growth of cancerous cells in the breast. It occurs in both males and females, however, the incidence of breast cancer in males is rare. Histologically, breast cancer can be classified into ductal carcinoma, lobular carcinoma, nipple cancer, and other undifferentiated carcinoma. Breast cancer is the second most common form of cancer in women. HER-2 is a protein that affects the growth of malignant cells and is usually found on the surface of normal breast cells. Sometimes, a large number of HER-2 receptors are found on the surface of breast cancer cells. These HER-2 receptors are responsible for stimulating the growth and division of malignant cancerous cells. This condition is therefore known as HER-2 positive breast cancer. HER-2 positive bre......
