The anti-cancer mechanism of platinum antitumor drugs can be divided into 4 steps: transmembrane transport, hydration dissociation, targeted migration, and acting on DNA to cause DNA replication disorder, thus inhibiting the division of cancer cells.
According to Researcher’s market research, there are five types of platinum-based antitumor drugs commonly used in China: first-generation cisplatin, second-generation carboplatin and nedaplatin, third-generation oxaliplatin and lobaplatin. Lobaplatin, 1,2-diammino-methy lcyclobutane-platinum (II) lactate, was developed in Germany. In 2002, China's Hainan Changan International Pharmaceutical purchased the patent right and the production and selling rights in China from ASAT, a German company. In 2005, its lobaplatin production was approved by the NMPA of China and marketed as a new Category I drug. In addition to affecting DNA synthesis and replication, its mechanism also affects the expression of the original tumor gene c-mye which is involved in oncogenesis, apoptosis and cell proliferation. The approved indications for lobaplatin in China are advanced breast cancer, small cell lung cancer and chronic myelomonocytic leukemia (CMML).
According to Researcher’s market research, since its launch in China, lobaplatin showed an upward trend in sales volume and value from 2005 to 2019. In 2020, the sales value of lobaplatin in China declined to USD472 million due to the outbreak of COVID-19 at the beginning of the year which affected the proper functioning of Chinese healthcare institutions, but the CAGR from 2016 to 2020 was still up to 20.3%.
Researcher expects that sales of lobaplatin in China will recover gradually from 2021 to 2025 as the COVID-19 is effectively controlled in the country. And the rising incidence of advanced breast cancer, small cell lung cancer and chronic granulocytic leukemia in China caused by increasing environmental pollution and changing lifestyles will boost the sales of lobaplatin. Generic drugs of lobaplatin are also expected to be available in China in the next few years, which will lower the average sales price of lobaplatin and increase the sales volume.
