Hepatitis B Virus – Geographic Focus: China – Hepatitis B Virus – China In-Depth – China

The prevalence of HBV is a major public health concern in China. Patients chronically infected with HBV are at high risk of developing hepatic cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. The majority of HBV patients are generally treated with established drugs such as pegylated interferon α-2a (Pegasys), pegylated interferon α-2b (Peg-Intron), tenofovir disoproxil fumarate (Viread), and entecavir (Baraclude). The primary market drivers include the recent launch of tenofovir amibufenamide (Jiangsu Hansoh’s HengMu) and the continued uptake of tenofovir alafenamide (Gilead’s Vemlidy). Several more therapies are expected to launch during the 2022-2032 forecast period. The ongoing reforms in the regulatory and A&R landscape of China are expected to encourage multinational companies to enter this market.
