Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/reports/c32989) has announced the addition of Lung Cancer Drug Pipeline Update 2006 to their offering.

According to American Cancer Society approximately 175 000 people will be diagnosed and 160 000 people died by lung cancer every year in the US. Over 800,000 people worldwide dies of non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) each year. More people die of lung cancer than of colon, breast, and prostate cancers combined. According to analysts, the NSCLC drug market is predicted to exceed $4 billion within a 5-7 year period. Chemotherapy drugs will experience generic erosion and three major chemotherapy drugs go off patent before 2012, Aventis' Taxotere (docetaxel), Bristol-Myers Squibb's Paraplatin (carboplatin) and Eli Lilly's Gemzar (gemcitabine). In a recent guideline the expert panel of the ASCO has updated their clinical practice guidelines for the treatment of NSCLC. In the guideline of 2004 Iressa has been recommended as third line treatment of patients with locally advanced or metastatic NSCLC after failure of both platinum-based and docetaxel chemotherapies. There are today no less than 234 emerging therapeutics targeting lung cancer, from early preclinical to Phase III clinical studies.
