Decision Resources announced today the availability of a new report on the anticoagulant drug market. The report entitled Novel Anticoagulants forecasts that sales of anticoagulant therapies will more than triple between 2001 and 2011 in the major pharmaceutical markets (United States, the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain, Italy and Japan), growing from $1.5 million in 2000 to $5.9 million in 2011.

"The growth of the anticoagulant market will be lead by the introduction and uptake of AstraZeneca's Exanta prescribed for both atrial fibrillation and deep vein thrombosis/pulmonary embolism as well as Sanofi-Synthelabo/Organon's Arixtra for the treatment and preventative treatment of deep vein thrombosis/pulmonary embolism," said Nicola Maidwell, analyst, Decision Resources. "Other novel therapies that act directly on both previously targeted and untargeted clotting factors will contribute to the changes in the management of anticoagulation as well."

Novel Anticoagulants provides a thorough analysis of the epidemiology, a review of disease treatment and overview of current anticoagulant therapies in four of the major anticoagulant markets - atrial fibrillation, deep vein thrombosis/pulmonary embolism, acute ischemic stroke and unstable angina. The report focuses on the forecasts for novel specific compounds, novel drug classes and current therapies.

About Abnormal Blood Clotting

Abnormal blood clot formation, or thrombosis, can diminish or block the flow of blood and oxygen supply to critical blood vessels in vital organs, leading to serious clinical conditions. Complications that can arise from thrombosis include deep vein thrombosis/pulmonary embolism, acute ischemic stroke, and acute coronary syndromes (unstable angina, myocardial infarction).
