Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "PharmaPoint: Atrial Fibrillation - Global Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2025" report to their offering.
Atrial fibrillation (AF) is the most common cardiac arrhythmia and is a heart condition that causes an irregular and often abnormally fast heart rate. Various therapeutic options are available to treat patients with AF, and most patients will receive some form of antithrombotic therapy, a heart rate control agent, and potentially an antiarrhythmic drug for rhythm control.
All sectors of the AF market have historically been saturated with generics, with the vitamin K antagonists such as warfarin playing an important role in stroke prevention in AF. However, since 2010, and the launch of the first of the new oral anticoagulants (NOACs), a shift in the treatment of patients with AF has occurred. The NOACs offer a significant advancement in anticoagulation and their continued uptake will be the main driver of growth in the AF market over the next 10 years.
In contrast, despite a great unmet need for safer antiarrhythmic drugs, developments in this field are expected to be much slower and there are presently no late-stage drug candidates that are expected to address this unmet need during the forecast period.
