Polycythemia Vera Market Strengths


The recent approval of Besremi in the US and its expected approval in Japan, in both the first and second line of treatment, provides the interferon with an immense opportunity to garner a big market size in Polycythemia Vera.


Polycythemia Vera Market Opportunities


Approval of Besremi in the first-line setting provides an opportunity for PharmaEssentia as there are no major competitors of Besremi that are targeting the patients irrespective of their treatment history. In fact, based on our analysis we expect that the interferon can also be a good option for patients resistant to both Hydroxyurea and Jakafi (mostly younger patients).
