According to a new research report “Prostatitis Therapeutics – Pipeline Analysis 2019, Clinical Trials and Results, Patents, Designations, Collaborations, and Other Developments” published by Pharma Proff, prostatitis therapeutics currently exhibits a proliferating pipeline with 12+ therapeutic candidates.
Prostatitis Therapeutics Pipeline Insights
Prostatitis refers to a group of disorders that lead to inflammatory condition causing pain in prostate gland. The disease is categorized into four forms: chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CPPS), acute bacterial prostatitis, chronic bacterial prostatitis, and asymptomatic prostatitis. CPPS, also called prostatodynia is the occurrence of prostatitis symptoms, without inflammation or bacterial infections. Acute bacterial prostatitis is described as inflammation of the prostate gland caused by bacteria such as Escherichia coli and Klebsiella. Chronic bacterial prostatitis is the recurrent infection and inflammation of the prostate and urinary tract, and asymptomatic prostatitis is an uncommon type wherein the patient experiences an inflamed prostate without any bacterial infection.
The chronic pelvic pain syndrome leads to pain in penis, lower back, scrotum, central lower abdomen, and between scrotum and anus, acute bacterial prostatitis and chronic bacterial prostatitis tend to change urinary frequency, fever, chills, burning sensation during urination, urinary blockage, nausea, and vomiting, whereas patients with asymptomatic prostatitis do not have symptoms of prostatitis.
The occurrence of prostatitis can be diagnosed by a physical examination, blood test digital rectal exam (DRE), prostate-specific antigen (PSA) blood test, and cystoscopy and urodynamic tests. Some of the commonly used treatment options include medications (antibiotics, alpha-blockers, and anti-inflammatory agents), lifestyle changes, and acupuncture.
In addition, Rapaflo (Kissei Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd.), Proscar (Merck & Co. Inc.), Avodart (GlaxoSmithKline plc), and Pamelor (Mallinckrodt LLC) are some of the drugs approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) for the treatment of prostatitis.
Insights into Pipeline Segments
According to the research findings, majority of the pipeline drug candidates are being developed for oral administration. It has been observed that the oral route of medications is convenient, available in delayed or rapid release formulation, less risk of systemic infections, and inexpensive in nature, and also provides improved patient’s compliance.
Positive Clinical Results are Expected to Drive the Prostatitis Therapeutics Pipeline
Companies that are involved in developing therapeutics for prostatitis have shown positive clinical results in the various phases of drug development. For instance, in September 2018, Santen Pharmaceutical Co. Ltd. announced positive data from the phase III trial of Opsiria for the treatment of patients with prostatitis. The results of the study concluded that the treatment with Opsiria had a favorable safety and tolerability profile. The study also recorded efficacy of Opsiria in lowering down the inflammation in eyes.
