DUBLIN, June 9, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Human Drugs For Veterinary Use - Current Trends and Future Commercial Prospects for Crossover Drugs" report to their offering.
'Human Drugs For Veterinary Use - Current Trends and Future Commercial Prospects for Crossover Drugs', discusses global commercial trends and prospects for human medicines applied in the veterinary setting, also called crossover drugs. A wide range of human drugs continue to be applied in the veterinary space due to a lack of approved animal therapies, convenience and the rising costs of veterinary research.
This new report provides insights into Extra-label Drug Use (ELDU), its application in the veterinary setting and other guidelines and regulations followed by professionals in the animal health industry. Through a series of in-depth case studies this report provides insights into the rationale for the transition of several human drugs to the veterinary setting as well as disease overviews, competing treatments, manufacturer information, dosage forms, cost of therapy and other insightful marketing information. Our new study also identifies and explores important drivers and restraints of the crossover drugs market.
A blockbuster drug in human health generates revenues in excess of $1 billion, whereas the animal health market's highest selling drugs achieve $50-100 million, with around 85% of animal sales reaching less than $1 million. In this way, many manufacturers of veterinary drugs are looking for products already licensed for human use to fill their pipelines.
Despite these drivers, there are safety, legal, ethical, and health issues associated with ELDU in animals. For instance, prescribing a human drug for veterinary use has its own risks. Mammalian species share many basic similarities in terms of responses to drugs, but there are differences seen at the cellular level, meaning responses may differ.
Another possibility might be that a human drug is prescribed despite the presence of a veterinary-approved alternative due to affordability issues, meaning a veterinarian could face legal issues.
This report provides details of Extra-label Drug Use (ELDU), its application in the veterinary setting and other guidelines and regulations followed by professionals in the animal health industry. It includes insights into the rationale for the transition of several human drugs to the veterinary setting as well as disease overviews, competing treatments, manufacturer information, dosage forms, cost of therapy and marketing information.
