Multiple Antiviral Drugs Prove More Effective in Treatment of COVID-19 than Single Drugs

The triple combination of lopinavir-ritonavir, ribavirin, and interferon beta-1b holds promising potentials in the treatment of coronavirus (COVID-19). Researchers in healthcare companies and organizations are referring historical findings of the lopinavir-ritonavir & ribavirin combination, which was effective in lowering the morbidity and mortality rate of the then SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome). Since COVID-19 is a novel viral infection, companies in the antiviral combination therapies market are increasing their research in triple combination therapies to advance in the coronavirus treatment.

Many Coronavirus patients are in need for intensive respiratory support in hospitals. Since lopinavir–ritonavir and interferon beta-1b were found to reduce the viral load in SARS, companies in the antiviral combination therapies market are increasing focus in these drugs to innovate in antiviral drugs for coronavirus. It has been found that multiple antiviral drugs help to improve patient outcomes as compared to the consumption of single drug treatments.

Strategic Collaborations Help Increase Combination Therapy Trials for Combating Coronavirus

Companies in the antiviral combination therapies market are taking giant strides by increasing their trails to combat COVID-19. The Indian Institute of Chemical Technology (IICT) has joined forces with the Indian subsidiary of global pharmaceutical company, Mylan, to innovate in combination therapies for coronavirus. Many pharmaceutical companies in India have entered the Phase 3 of clinical trials with the help of computational modelling of molecules and laboratory-based data. The unprecedented demand for antiviral drugs has fueled innovations in combination therapy trials. Moreover, rising COVID-19 cases in India is acting as a key driver for market growth.

Medical institutes are increasing efforts to collaborate with hospitals to innovate in combination therapy trials. It has been found that the combination of antiviral drugs with antibiotics holds promising potentials in minimizing coronavirus symptoms in patients.

Traditional Chinese Medicine with Entecavir Reduces Morbidity in Hepatitis B Patients

The antiviral combination therapies market is projected to advance at a high CAGR during the assessment period. Healthcare companies are exploring new therapy avenues such as the combined therapy of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), along with antiviral drugs for the treatment of chronic hepatitis B (CHB). The Chinese YinQiSanHuang-antiviral decoction with entecavir is gaining popularity for reducing the annual incidence of liver fibrosis/cirrhosis amongst hepatitis B patients. Thus, analysts of Transparency Market Research (TMR) anticipate that the antiviral combination therapy is a fast growing phenomenon for hepatitis B treatment.

It has been found that conventional antiviral drugs alone are not enough for the efficacious hepatitis B treatment. As such, there is a need for credible clinical evidence to understand the combination of TCM and Western medicines for the hepatitis B treatment.
 

Small Molecule Antagonists Combined with Oral Antivirals for Hepatitis Treatment

The combination therapy with lamivudine or tenofovir and pegylated interferon (PEG-IFN) has been reported for the treatment of hepatitis B. As such, there is a need for clarification on clinical evidence to analyze the long-term efficacy of this type of combination therapy for CHB. Hepatitis B patients with low hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) levels are being recommended with the combination therapy. However, the scientific community is faced with challenges such as restrictions in research project funds, which breaks the long-term continuity of trial periods. Hence, companies in the antiviral combination therapies market should increase their research expenditure to explore new combination therapies based on different mechanisms.

New drug developments are in pipeline for companies in the antiviral combination therapies market. In November 2018, Gilead Sciences— the U.S. biopharmaceutical company, announced that combination of GS-9688— an investigational oral selective small molecule agonist and oral antivirals is well tolerated among viral hepatitis patients.

New ARV Regimens Minimize Incidence of Intolerable Adverse Effects in HIV Patients

North America is predicted to account for the lion’s share in revenue of the antiviral combination therapies market during 2020-2030. However, adults living with HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) have been reported to encounter adverse effects such as metabolic complications and kidney dysfunction due to the adoption of the combination antiretroviral therapy (ART). Hence, healthcare companies are increasing their R&D efforts to develop new ARV regimens that cause fewer serious and intolerable adverse effects than regimens used in the past.

NRTIs (Nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitors) are associated with multiple mechanisms of action among HIV patients. Companies in the antiviral combination therapies market such as Merck are keen on development of their Islatravir NRTI. Manufacturers are increasing the availability of NRTIs that have greater inhibitory quotients against drug-resistant mutations. Such manufacturers have a competitive edge in the market since traditional NRTIs confer low fold-shifts in potency.
PEG IFN and Nucleoside Analogues Combination Enhances Immune Response in CHB Patients

Chronic hepatitis B is found to be an important cause for cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) worldwide. In order to avoid incidence of HCC, companies in the antiviral combination therapies market are increasing the availability of nucleoside analogues or pegylated interferon in order to prevent progression to cirrhosis. As such, antiviral combination therapy is being highly publicized as an additive and a synergistic agent to prevent HCC in hepatitis B patients. Hence, companies in the antiviral combination therapies market are increasing research to identify the sequence of treatments that can be efficacious in minimizing HCC in CHB patients.

Combinations of nucleoside analogues and PEG IFN bode well for preventing progression of cirrhosis in hepatitis B patients. Healthcare companies are capitalizing on incremental opportunities, since PEG IFN and nucleoside analogues result in lowering hepatitis B surface antigen (HBsAg) concentrations and enhancing immune response.

Analysts’ Viewpoint

Anti-HIV combination drugs are gaining popularity for fighting COVID-19. Combination strategies involving PEG IFN and nucleoside analogues help to inhibit hepatitis B virus replication in patients, whilst enhancing immune response. Investigational small molecule agonists are being used with oral antivirals to advance in clinical trials for viral hepatitis.

Traditional Chinese medicine in combination with entecavir holds promising potentials for the hepatitis B treatment. However, antiviral medicines such as tenofovir or lamivudine are not recommended during the treatment. Hence, companies in the antiviral combination therapies market should increase awareness about the adverse effects of drugs to avoid morbidity and mortality in hepatitis B patients.
