Decision Resources announced today the availability of a new report entitled Deep Vein Thrombosis/Pulmonary Embolism, which finds the market for deep vein thrombosis/pulmonary embolism (DVT/PE) to be poised for significant growth. The report finds that increases in the candidate and drug-treated population; changes in medical practice; and the launch of safer, more effective therapies for both the prevention and treatment of DVT/PE will fuel rapid changes in the market.

"For DVT/PE, the prevention market is almost four times larger than the treatment sector due to the predominantly larger candidate population for preventative therapies," said Jean Paton-Ker, analyst, Decision Resources. "This trend will continue as trials demonstrating the benefit of preventative therapies in an increasing number of patient populations that were previously neglected -- such as moderate-risk surgery and hospitalized patients not undergoing surgery -- are proving that such drugs are a vital component of many surgical and non-surgical procedures."

About the Disease -- Deep Vein Thrombosis

DVT/PE is a major cause of morbidity and mortality in hospitalized patients in the major pharmaceutical markets (the United States, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, United Kingdom, and Japan). Failure to diagnose and administer prophylaxis (preventative therapies) for DVT/PE has made it the most common cause of unexpected death in hospitalized patients (9% of patients die from pulmonary embolism) and a major focus of medical malpractice lawsuits. Awareness of DVT/PE as a life-threatening condition has been enhanced by publicity around deaths from DVT/PE after long-haul flights.
