Fort Collins, Colorado, May 11, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —

The rise in skin disorders aggravates the need for merkel cell carcinoma treatment industry.


The merkel cell carcinoma treatment market is witnessing substantial growth driven by multiple vital factors. Firstly, the rise in the incidence of this rare yet aggressive skin cancer is a primary catalyst. Research published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology reveals a staggering 95% increase in Merkel Cell Carcinoma cases between 2000 and 2013 in the United States alone. The American Cancer Society estimates approximately 3,000 new cases of Merkel Cell Carcinoma annually in the United States, attributing this rise to factors such as heightened UV radiation exposure, compromised immune systems, and an aging population.

Secondly, rapid advancements in immunotherapy represent a significant driver for market expansion. Immune checkpoint inhibitors like pembrolizumab and avelumab have emerged as breakthrough treatments for advanced Merkel Cell Carcinoma. Clinical studies, such as those published in the New England Journal of Medicine, underscore the remarkable efficacy of pembrolizumab, demonstrating an impressive objective response rate of 56% in patients with advanced disease. Furthermore, regulatory approvals from entities like the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for drugs like avelumab as a first-line treatment for metastatic Merkel Cell Carcinoma further bolster market growth, providing patients with access to novel and effective therapeutic options.
