EUROPEAN MARKETS FOR BENIGN PROSTATIC HYPERPLASIA DRUGS, DEVICES AND THERAPIES

175 Pages | 39 Exhibits | 2008 Analysis | Forecasts Through 2011 Product Family: Market Reports




OVERVIEW:
Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), or an enlarged prostate, is an extremely common condition for men, affecting more than half of all men by age 60 and up to 90% of men by age 80. It is estimated that more than 28 million men in Europe suffer from some form of BPH.

Due to their effectiveness and convenience, prescription BPH medications remain the first line of treatment for the majority of men with BPH. In many men, however, BPH drugs produce undesirable side effects and most do not provide a permanent or curative solution to progressive BPH. To address the limitations of currently available BPH drugs, several promising new BPH drug formulations are expected to gain regulatory approval in Europe within the next 5 years.

In addition to drug therapy, minimally invasive energy-based treatments have been developed that provide moderate-term symptom relief for those patients who do not seek or are not eligible for BPH drug therapy. Minimally invasive BPH therapies include laser-, microwave-, and radiofrequency-based techniques that are performed in an outpatient basis, have short patient recovery times, and are less risky than standard prostate surgery.

The European market for BPH treatment products, including drugs and minimally invasive therapies, was valued at approximately $718.1 million in 2007. Sales of BPH treatment products in Europe are expected to increase at a compound annual rate of 4.5%, reaching an estimated $857.0 million in the year 2011.

This dynamic, new report from Medtech Insight includes analyses of products, current and emerging markets, competitors, and opportunities in the European BPH drugs, devices, and therapies market. Covered topics in this report include a discussion of the healthcare markets of France, Germany, Italy, Spain, the U.K., and the Benelux countries (Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg); an overview of BPH disorders and treatment options; a comprehensive overview of existing/emerging BPH drugs and clinical trials; minimally invasive BPH therapies including laser-, microwave-, and radiofrequency-based therapies, water-induced thermotherapy; transurethral resection of the prostate (TURP); PK TURP surgery; and temporary/permanent prostatic stents.
