Fibrosarcoma treatment Market Estimated to Observe Significant Growth during 2017-2025

Sarcoma is referred to as a type of cancer that originates from the mesenchymal transformed cells. Fibrosarcoma is a rare malignancy, which is characterized by anaplastic undifferentiated spindle cells or proliferating immature fibroblasts in a storiform appearance. The disease arises from the fibrous tissue of bones such as the tibia, the femur, or the mandible. The tumor may be categorized based on differentiation degree into low-grade malignancy, intermediate malignancy, and anaplastic malignancy. Prevalence of fibrosarcoma is higher among men than women. As per the National Cancer Institute (NCI), only 5% of bone sarcomas are found to be fibrosarcoma. According to database of the Surveillance, Epidemiology & End Results (SEER), the rate of incidence of bone joint sarcomas was 0.9 per 100,000 people between 2000 and 2004. Based on type, fibrosarcoma can be divided into primary medullary fibrosarcoma, primary surface fibrosarcoma, secondary fibrosarcoma, multi-centric fibrosarcoma, and congenital fibrosarcoma. Generally, fibrosarcoma treatment comprises chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgery to remove sarcoma.

Report Summary:

Over the last decade, the cancer prophylaxis sector in developed countries has been witnessing significant growth, due to initiatives taken by governments to educate women about early diagnosis and treatment. This has helped in preventing the progression of fibrosarcoma into aggressive or advanced stages, thereby restraining the fibrosarcoma treatment market. Increasing prevalence of fibrosarcoma, rising awareness about the disease, advancements in treatment, and availability of a variety of treatments drive the market for fibrosarcoma treatment. Readily available, inexpensive, and FDA-approved therapeutics such as ifosfamide (Ifex) and doxorubicin (Adriamycin) would be augmenting the global fibrosarcoma treatment market in the next few years. Ongoing research activities and availability of strong pipeline drugs are projected to boost the fibrosarcoma treatment market during the forecast period.

The fibrosarcoma treatment market can be classified based on type of treatment and geography. In terms of type of treatment, the fibrosarcoma treatment market has been classified into chemotherapy, radiation therapy, and surgical therapy. The chemotherapy segment comprises drugs such as doxorubicin, ifosamide, cisplatin, carboplatin, and etoposide. Generally, patients are prescribed with chemotherapy drugs in early stages and with radiation therapy and surgeries in later and severe stages. Common methods of treatment for early-stage cancer include surgery or radiation therapy combined with chemotherapy. The radiation therapy, chemotherapy, and hormone therapy are often used in combination for the treatment of advanced stages of fibrosarcoma.
