Increase in Demand for SBS Drugs Due to High Cost of Parenteral Nutrition to Drive Market

Most of the short bowel syndrome patients are on parenteral nutrition initially until the patients’ intestine has adopted and hemostasis is being maintained. The cost of parenteral nutrition varies from patient to patient, and ranges between US$ 150,000 and US$ 586,000 per year. The high cost of parenteral nutrition increases demand for short bowel syndrome drugs, which have shown the ability to reduce patient’s dependence on parenteral nutrition during the clinical trials. For instance, apraglutide has the potential to enable patients to minimize the burden from parenteral support by increasing intestinal absorption of fluids, calories, and nutrients. Apraglutide has completed phase 2 studies and is currently being evaluated in a pivotal phase 3 clinical trial. Based on preclinical and clinical data to date, apraglutide has the potential to facilitate the treatment of SBS-IF by establishing less frequent dosing and improving outcomes in a clinically meaningful fashion to address the needs of patients across the anatomical spectrum that characterizes the disease.
