Breast cancer generally occurs when breast cells grow uncontrollably. Mostly, breast cancer development starts in the duct that carries milk to the nipples. Some breast cancer cells develop in milk producing glands. As per the National Institutes of Health (NIH), in the U.S., 14.6% of all new cancer cases diagnosed every year are of breast cancer. Also, as per the American Cancer Society (ACS), 1 in every 5 woman has cancer cell in their breast tumour with several growth promoting protein receptors on their surface. HER2 (human epidermal growth factor receptor 2) gene plays significant role in the development of breast cancer in most of the cases. Alpelisib is one of the key pipeline drug candidates for hormone sensitive breast cancer pipeline. Pfizer Inc., and Novartis AG are major players involved in the development of drugs for hormone sensitive breast cancer.
The report provides a comprehensive understanding of the pipeline activities covering all drug candidates under various stages of development, with the detailed analysis of pipeline and clinical trials.
Pipeline analysis of drugs by phases includes product description and development activities including information about clinical results, designations, collaborations, licensing, grants, technology, and others.
