GlobalData has released its new Country report, “HIV – Brazil 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.

Unlike the seven major markets, the market in Brazil mostly represents revenues generated from the sale of generics. It is interesting to note that the absence of STRs and FDCs, such as Gilead’s Truvada or ViiV’s Epzicom, is because of the high cost of these therapies. GlobalData estimates that ViiV will launch its pipeline candidate, 572-Trii, as a novel STR in an attempt to break into this market. The NRTI class is represented mainly by generic Combivir, followed by generic lamivudine and tenofovir.
