Radiation Proctitis Treatment Market Brief Analysis By Top Key Players

Press Release

Radiation proctitis is inflammation and harm to the lower parts of the colon after X-ray or radiation treatment. Radiation treatment to the pelvis is critical in the treatment of pelvic malignancies, because it damage the DNA of the cancer cells and a result the proliferation stops. Initially, low dose radiation therapy show no benefit in the treatment of rectal malignancy, as it showing resistance against the cancer cells. But, later it was found that higher doses were essential to overcome the resistance to treat cancers. However, higher doses of radiation lead to organ damage. Presently, proctitis is the most common complication of radiation treatment using high doses, particularly after treatment for prostate tumor. Despite advances made in radiation science, several study reports show that 75% of patients suffer from acute radiation proctitis.

Based on treatment type, the global radiation proctitis treatment market can be segmented into non-invasive and invasive. The non-invasive segment can be classified into nonsterodial anti-inflammatory drugs, sucralfate, short chain fatty acids, hyperbaric oxygen, and antioxidants. The sucralfate drugs sub-segment is likely to expand at a rapid pace during the forecast period, as sucralfate agents such as pentosan polysulfate contain high sulfated polyanionic disaccharide compound that stimulates epithelial healing and forms a coating that helps to heal more quickly. In terms of distribution channel, the global radiation proctitis treatment market can be bifurcated into hospital pharmacies and medical stores. The hospital pharmacies segment is likely to expand at a significant pace during the forecast period, as radiation proctitis treatment is mostly performed in hospitals and patients feel convenient to purchase drugs through hospital pharmacies.

Rise in prevalence of prostate, rectal, and cervical cancers is a major factor fueling the growth of the global radiation proctitis treatment market. Moreover, increase in adoption of radiation therapy to treat cancer is projected to drive the radiation proctitis treatment market during the forecast period. However, adverse reactions of non-invasive drugs such as transient nausea and occasional vomiting are likely to hamper the radiation proctitis treatment market in the next few years.
