Bivalirudin Drug Market Competitive Environment and Forecast 2018 – 2028

Bivalirudin Drug Market Introduction

Bivalirudin is a synthetic residue peptide and it is direct thrombin inhibitor (DTI). It is an anticoagulant that helps to prevent the formation of blood clots, especially in people with severe chest pain or ones who are undergoing angioplasty. Bivalirudin is for IV use only and it is supplied as a sterile, lyophilized product, and glass vials. Moreover, Bivalirudin is also used conjuction with other medicines.

Bivalirudin drugs are finding wide application in patients undergoing Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty (PTCA) and percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) procedures. Bivalirudin is not given to patients with active major bleeding. The most common adverse health effects of Bivalirudin are pain, nausea, back pain, hypotension, and headache. Meanwhile, Bivalirudin is also approved for cardiac patients undergoing PCI. Bivalirudin is also partly cleared by renal mechanism, hence, the dose administration needs to be managed for patients with severe renal impairment.

Bivalirudin Drug Market Dynamics

Bivalirudin Drug as Alternative to Heparin for Anticoagulation in Children and Infants

Bivalirudin has emerged as an alternative for heparin for infants and children in anticoagulation. Moreover, Bivalirudin, unlike heparin, does not require antithrombin to be effective, thus providing more consistent anticoagulation. The use of DTI among children and infants has been uncommon. However, the primary reason for use of DTI is the development of thrombus or HIT extension during the heparin therapy.

Although the use of Bivalirudin is not common in pediatrics, the use of DTI is slowly increasing owing to the rise in diagnosis of HIT. Meanwhile, in various studies, researchers have found a significant reduction in the rate of bleeding after using DTI with Bivalirudin as compared to argatroban. Meanwhile, the first pilot study on use of Bivalirudin to treat thrombosis in infants was presented in 2007. After this more research has been done resulting in the successful use of Bivalirudin in various cases including children undergoing cardiac catheterization.

Increasing Use of Bivalirudin Drug in Patients Undergoing PCI

The acute coronary syndrome is emerging as the most common cause of death globally. This is driving the demand for Percutaneous Coronary Intervention (PCI) to manage acute coronary syndrome. In order to reduce the risk of thrombotic complications, the use of anticoagulation therapy is increasing during PCI, thereby, driving the demand for Bivalirudin drug as the anticoagulant drug as it reduces the risk of bleeding during the procedure. Moreover, Bivalirudin drug has also been licensed as an alternative to Heparin for the patients undergoing PCI and also for the patients with HIT who go for PCI.

The sale of Bivalirudin drug is also increasing as anticoagulant drug owing to the advantages as compared to similar drugs in the market. Moreover, Bivalirudin does not present complications including hemorrhagic and ischemic that are often caused by other anticoagulant drugs.

High Cost of Bivalirudin Drug to Restrain its Growth

Despite increasing use of Bivalirudin drug as a substitute for Heparin and other anticoagulant drugs, the high cost of Bivalirudin drug is restricting its use among patients with low or moderate risk of bleeding. Although, Bivalirudin has shown better results in patients undergoing PCI, its high cost may restrict its use among patients. Moreover, expenditure review by various healthcare institutions have also noted a significant increase in the contribution of Bivalirudin drug on the overall drug budget.

Various organizations and governments are focusing on cost saving initiatives to reduce the cost of Bivalirudin and also reduce its wastage by providing the dosage as required depending on the patient’s condition.
