( has
announced the addition of GlobalData's new report "PharmaPoint: HIV - Germany
Drug Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022" to their offering. 

GlobalData has released its new Country report, PharmaPoint: HIV - Germany Drug
Forecast and Market Analysis to 2022. Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), the
causative agent of AIDS, has claimed millions of lives since its emergence.
However, the advent of antiretroviral therapy (ART) has transformed the face of
HIV/AIDS from a deadly disease to a manageable chronic condition for most
infected individuals. Antiretroviral treatment not only reduces the viral load
and reconstitutes immune function, but also decreases infection incidence rates
by limiting viral transmission. 

The treatment algorithm in HIV has characteristically involved multiple drug
regimens designed to tackle the virus on different levels. In the recent past,
simplified dosing regimens through the emergence of single tablet regimens
(STRs) or fixed dose combination (FDC) therapies have become increasingly
popular amongst physicians and patients alike by increasing clinical efficacy
thresholds and enabling patient compliance. 

Newer STRs are expected to be released and will replace Atripla as the market
leader during the forecast period. As a whole, the market share of the STRs will
be affected by key patent expiries, such as those of BMS' Sustiva, which is a
key component of Atripla. Combined with healthcare budget restrictions imposed
by the general financial situation in Europe, this might lead to a drastic drop
in Atripla sales and increase the barrier to entry for novel STRs.
