What do frontline clinicians really think about current HIV treatment pathways and what are the most pressing unmet needs that industry can respond to?
What’s driving long term growth in HIV?
The market for HIV therapies has been growing fast–a 5 year CAGR (2007-2012) of 12.0%–but sustaining growth will be a challenge. The HIV sector is mature with many tried and tested treatment options, so what has underpinned growth to date and how can companies drive market expansion in the future?
The patient population is key
Current HIV therapies are effective in suppressing HIV and are successfully increasing patients’ life expectancy. However, they are not curative and must be taken for the lifetime of the patient. This means the market for HIV therapies will be sustained from the long-term maintenance of the current patient base whose numbers will swell as new cases are diagnosed.
Good times, bad times?
Valued at US billion in 2012, and with a 5-year CAGR (2007-2012) of 12.0 percent, the HIV sector is dominated by seven blockbuster drugs: Gilead’s Atripla and Truvada; Bristol Myers-Squibb’s Reyataz; Merck & Co.’s Isentress; Janssen Therapeutics’ Prezista; ViiV Healthcare’s Epzicom/Kivexa; and AbbVie’s Kaletra. With few payer restrictions on prescribing HIV therapies, no prospect of a cure or vaccine in the near future and limited uptake of generics to date, the sector is forecast to maintain stable returns until the end of the decade. However, driving high growth will be a challenge, and new products must show significant clinical and patient benefits if they are to succeed in a market already provided with established therapy options.
Game changers in the pipeline?
Medical adherence, improved efficacy and reducing toxicity are major challenges and there are a number of promising candidates in late trials–but how will they fare? Will ViiV Healthcare price Trii, its first single-tablet complete regimen, competitively? Tobira Therapeutics cenicriviroc has novel anti-inflammatory effects, but what are the regulatory hurdles it will have to overcome? And Gilead’s tenofovir alafenamide could address safety concerns associated with tenofovir; can it limit competition from generic alternatives?
Meeting the challenge of unmet need
Many of the challenges faced by clinicians are not related to efficacy, but include poor adherence to treatment, often exacerbated by societal and mental health issues, the stigma associated with diagnostic testing and low levels of early diagnosis. There are, however, opportunities for industry to improve patient outcomes. For example:

Key Quotes from the Report
“We know that patients who are on therapy do better if they are taking one pill a day, as a combination pill, there is no question about that. We need the best possible fixed dose single combination pill.”
“Every patient who takes the drugs will be able to suppress the virus, so the question is not the potency of the combination, the question is the toxicity in the long-term. What about the kidneys? I mean everybody is taking tenofovir. We see the renal problems after years. We have an aging (HIV) population and we have to be prepared for the long run and I don't think we really are.”
“There are a lot of expectations with Trii. I cannot think of another drug where the expectations were as high. Trii could be a good option for many different patients, and you don’t have to worry about the renal issues. It's highly potent, very well tolerated, it doesn't have a signature toxicity. I see a bright future for Trii.”
“Current NNRTIs have a low barrier for resistance and a significant amount of patients are going to fail eventually with K103N [mutation]. Having an NNRTI that is able to overcome mutations is important.”
“My personal view is that it will have a very small impact. We know PrEP with Truvada works. The major problem is cost. You need to give the medicines to plenty of uninfected subjects to prevent a few cases of HIV.”
