Datamonitor Healthcare Oncology Disease Analysis: Triple-Negative Breast Cancer
February 12, 2020Triple-negative breast cancer (TNBC) is a relatively rare breast cancer subtype. It is characterized by the absence of estrogen and progesterone receptors, and does not involve the overexpression of HER2. TNBC is associated with poor prognosis, a high risk of local recurrence, and poor disease-free and cancer-specific survival. It accounts for roughly 14% of breast cancers.
Worldwide, breast cancer is the second most common cancer and the fifth leading cause of cancer-related deaths regardless of gender. In the US, breast cancer is the most common cancer in women and the fourth leading cause of cancer-related deaths, regardless of gender, behind lung cancer, colorectal cancer, and pancreatic cancer.
The TNBC market will experience rapid growth over the next 10 years across the US, Japan, and five major EU markets (France, Germany, Italy, Spain, and the UK). The primary drivers for this growth are the approval and subsequent uptake of new targeted therapies and immunotherapies. The market for triple-negative breast cancer is also becoming increasingly segmented by biomarker status, creating fierce competition among both approved and pipeline therapies for small patient populations.
