Key Companies: HIV - Companies co-operate and co-formulate to stay competitive in a tight HIV market

Introduction

HIV across the seven major markets is largely dominated by two companies: Gilead Sciences and ViiV Healthcare. The growing dominance of convenient one-pill once-daily regimens will increasingly pressure companies to collaborate and co-formulate their marketed and/or pipeline HIV drugs into fixed dose combinations (FDCs) to remain successful in a tight HIV market.

Features and benefits

* In-depth discussion of portfolios and strategies of key HIV companies.

* Discussion of future strategic opportunities to achieve success in a crowded HIV market.

* Review of corporate strategies in HIV.

Highlights

With Gilead and ViiV Healthcare clearly dominating the HIV market, the remaining companies active in the field have much smaller HIV portfolios. An emerging HIV treatment trend towards nuc-sparing regimens offers opportunities for smaller players to form new vertical collaborations and to diversify the HIV field.

With its blockbuster products Truvada (tenofovir disoproxil fumarate/emtricitabine) and Atripla (tenofovir disoproxil fumarate/emtricitabine/efavirenz), Gilead Sciences is the current HIV market leader in the seven major markets. Its strong late-stage pipeline will help Gilead to defend this position in the short- to mid-term future.

ViiV Healthcare's currently marketed HIV portfolio is diverse but includes several older drugs. However, of all companies involved in the HIV field, ViiV has by far the richest and most diverse HIV pipeline, offering plenty of opportunity to challenge Gilead's current position as HIV market leader in the mid-to long-term future.

Your key questions answered

* Recognize trends in HIV drug development and learn how companies can respond to future opportunities and challenges in the field.

* Understand corporate strategies for the life-cycle management of HIV drugs in the seven major markets.
