Research and Markets: DRG Insight: Hypertension (G7)

DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Decision Resources, Inc's new report "DRG Insight: Hypertension (G7)" to their offering.

DRG Insights takes the most relevant information and insights from across our portfolio for BioPharma and Med-Tech products and delivers the insight heavy perspective that you need to generate better ideas and deliver more successful campaigns and initiatives.

The hypertension market, though mature and heavily genericized, offers significant opportunities for blood pressure (BP)-lowering drugs that can prevent the development of cardiovascular disease, cerebrovascular disease, or end-organ damage.

The best on-market single-agent therapies achieve only relatively modest levels of BP reduction, hence the increasing prominence of fixed-dose combination (FDC) drugs in the market. However, physicians value the ability to titrate drug therapy, and payers are increasingly rewarding innovation and novel modes of therapeutic action, which signals room for new antihypertensive agents.

For existing and emerging therapies alike, the high disease prevalence, ease of diagnosis, and recognized need to treat hypertension also translates to substantial sales potential, even for therapies that capture a small share of the market.
