Hemophilia Care Survey & Gene Therapy Interest in the United States 2022

 

SURVEY ON HEMOPHILIA CARE & Gene Therapy Interest in the United States
(May 2022)

Since 1993, the Marketing Research Bureau has tracked the US hemophilia care market, focusing on the most important clinical as well as socio-economic issues including product’s switching and adoption of new therapies, product’s differentiation, prophylaxis, treatment preferences, pricing, reimbursement trends and more,

The FDA approval of Roche’s Hemlibra in October 2018 for hemophilia A prophylactic treatment has opened a new era in hemophilia care, with rapid uptake in patients with inhibitors and regular prophylaxis. Since then, Hemlibra has steadily increased its market share, though other products retain significant market share. With a number of extended half-life recombinant factor VIII now on the market, the variety of new therapeutic options available to hemophilia patients, as well as for persons with von Willebrand disease has already changed the therapeutic landscape. For the clotting factor manufacturers, the wide choice offered to patients and treating personnel represents a new challenge as it becomes increasingly difficult to maintain differentiation in a crowded market, with pressure on prices.

Based on thirteen in-depth telephone interviews with hemophilia treatment centers and other stakeholders, this report provides clients with a detailed description of the US hemophilia care market in early 2022 and how it has evolved over the past decade. In addition, over 200 patients and parents of people with hemophilia were surveyed about their interest, awareness and receptiveness to gene therapy in the coming years. The results of this are shared to gauge potential uptake of these disruptive treatments. The report has over 135 pages of charts and analysis, along with over 55 pages of notes from the HTC interviews for all the details.  

 

Some of the report’s focuses include:

  • Analysis of coagulation factor brands, including the adoption and perception of new recombinant factors VIII and IX, as well as of Genentech’s Hemlibra;
  • Market shares of coagulation factor products;
  • Trends in prophylaxis;
  • Gene therapy awareness, interest and receptiveness for uptake anticipation
  • Awareness of new products and technologies in development, including gene therapy;
  • Impact of the 340 B program and patients’ issues and
  • Coagulation factor prices.
