The prime reason for the shift in choice can be attributed to low success rates of acromegaly surgeries. For instance, as per the NIH, in a study involving total 62 subjects, 31 subjects were treated by transsphenoidal surgery, and four subjects were cured.

Out of these 31 subjects treated with transsphenoidal surgery, post-operative anterior pituitary hormone deficiency was seen in 10 subjects, and diabetes insipidus got developed in one subject.

Major key players in the global acromegaly and gigantism drugs market: Ipsen, Novartis, and Pfizer

According to the acromegaly and gigantism drugs market report, one of the major drivers for this market is Strong pipeline. The presence of a large number of molecules in pipeline represents significant opportunities for market growth.

Around 42.86% of the total pipeline molecules for acromegaly and gigantism are in Phase III stage of development and are expected to be launched during the forecast period. Companies are working toward the development of drugs that cater to the unmet medical needs for this condition.

For instance, octreotide capsules by Chiasma and Pasireotide long-acting release (LAR) by Novartis for individuals with acromegaly who are inadequately treated with somatostatin analogs, and combination therapy of lanreotide autogel and pegvisomant by Ipsen are in Phase III stage of development for the treatment of acromegaly.

Further, the acromegaly and gigantism drugs market report states that one of the major factors hindering the growth of this market is Difficulty in diagnosis. In the last two decades, numerous important advancements took place in the domain such as the emergence of assays with improved sensitivity for IGF-1 and GH, development of automated software for evaluating physical changes associated with the disease, and widespread pituitary examination using magnetic resonance imaging (MRI).

Despite all these advancements, acromegaly remains clinically under-diagnosed.
