The existing treatment landscape is bleak for both newly diagnosed and recurrent GBM, with temozolomide alone serving as the standard of care after surgery and radiation. For first-line treatment Rindopepimut, a novel vaccine, is in late-stage development in India and Australia, but it is limited to EGFRvIII patients. There are two strong candidates in the current pipeline for second-line treatment: Avastin and Cotara. Avastin is the first and only targeted therapy for newly diagnosed GBM, is already approved as second-line treatment in Australia and Japan, and is in Phase III development in China and India. Cotara is a single-infusion drug with a novel delivery route, which is in Phase II development in India. The expected launch of these three drugs is the key driver for growth in APAC GBM market. As all are expensive, even a modest uptake will increase the annual cost of therapy, and subsequently the market size.
