Arlington Medical Resources to Release Analysis of the Complicated Skin and Skin Structure Infections Market in Europe

Report Analyzes Dynamics of Product Usage, Physicians’ Treatment Patterns and Patient Population

EXTON, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Arlington Medical Resources (AMR), a provider of premier market intelligence for the pharmaceutical and diagnostic imaging industries, will release analysis of the treatment of complicated skin and skin structure infections (cSSSIs) in Europe. Complicated skin and skin structure infections are a key driver of the hospital antibiotic market, and are often complicated by pre-existing complications and conditions, such as diabetes mellitus. Moreover, treatment of cSSSIs due to antibiotic-drug resistant pathogens, specifically methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is an important aspect of the European hospital antibiotic market because MRSA infections drive the uptake of narrow-spectrum therapies, such as vancomycin, Sanofi-Aventis’s Targocid, Pfizer’s Zyvox and Cubist/Novartis’s Cubicin.

The report, Hospital Insight Series: Complicated Skin and Skin Structure Infections (Europe), uses clinical audit data and primary research with infectious disease specialists to understand the dynamics of product usage and physicians’ treatment patterns. The report also provides segmentation of cSSSI patient population, identifies rates of treatment failure and discontinuation by drug and provides insight into why physicians have changed their treatment approach to cSSSIs in recent years.

“For pharmaceutical companies manufacturing therapies to treat complicated skin and skin structure infections, this analysis is valuable for identifying key prescribers and understanding physicians’ therapy preferences and factors that influence both current and future prescribing patterns,” said AMR Analyst Brenda Perez-Cheeks, Ph.D. “Our primary research also reveals insights into infectious disease physicians’ receptivity to novel and emerging therapies, as well as unmet needs in the complicated skin and skin structure infections market.”
