Global Lung Cancer Therapeutics Market 2015-2019: Key Vendors are AstraZeneca, Celgene, Eli Lilly, F. Hoffmann-La Roche and Pfizer

Dublin, Dec. 9, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Global Lung Cancer Therapeutics Market 2015-2019" report to their offering.

The use of personalized medicine is a major trend in this market. It is based on the genetic structure of the patients, and has fewer adverse side effects compared to chemotherapy, which tends to destroy other healthy cells of the body while killing the malignant cancerous cells.

According to the report, the high unmet need for appropriate drugs is one of the major factors propelling the growth of the market. Current treatment options cannot cure the disease completely; hence, the mortality rate of lung cancer patients is high. Therefore, drugs that cause disease remission in patients are expected to significantly drive the growth of the market.

Further, the report states that the high cost of treatment is a major factor that restricts the growth of the market. The drugs that are used for the treatment of cancer are expensive and, hence, get poor response from patients. The patients also tend to withdraw themselves from expensive treatment regimens.

The study was conducted using an objective combination of primary and secondary information including inputs from key participants in the industry.
