Detailed Insights on COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus 19) - Identify Companies That Are Developing Therapies, Vaccines and Diagnostic Kits

DUBLIN, March 30, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- The "COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus 19) Therapeutic Pipeline, Vaccines, and Diagnostics Competitive Landscape, 2020" report has been added to's offering.

First identified in the Hubei province of Wuhan, China, this is the third time the coronavirus has created havoc in the whole world. Coronaviruses (CoV) are a large family of viruses that cause illnesses ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS-CoV) and Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS-CoV). Known initially as novel coronavirus-2019 (nCoV-19), the virus has now been named Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) by the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV), due to its genetic similarity with the coronavirus responsible for 2003 SARS outbreak.

It has already spread to more than 160 countries all over Asia, Europe, North America, and the Middle East. More than 250k have been confirmed positive with SARS-CoV-2 as on March 20th, 2020. Looking at the rapid transmission of the infection and gravity of the situation, on 11th March 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the coronavirus outbreak a pandemic.

Government agencies, Institutions, Biotech companies, pharmaceutical companies, around the world are working exhaustively and actively in finding a cure and are focused on developing vaccines/drugs to prevent or treat COVID-19infection.

The recently launched report covers a detailed analysis of 50+ companies working for the development of drugs and vaccines as well as diagnostics companies are working on developing test kits.

COVID-19 Overview

This comprehensive report offers a solid foundation to start - or progress - further research and analysis into the COVID-19, including causes and symptoms, morbidity and mortality to transmission, treatment, and prevention.

COVID-19 is a respiratory viral infection, in which common signs of infection include respiratory symptoms, fever, and cough, shortness of breath and breathing difficulties. In more severe cases, the infection can cause pneumonia, severe acute respiratory syndrome, kidney failure, and even death.

The recent report outlays comprehensive insights of present clinical development scenario and growth prospects across the COVID- 19 pipelines. A detailed picture of the COVID-19pipeline landscape is provided, which includes the disease overview and COVID-19 treatment guidelines specific to the country. The assessment part of the report elucidates the in-depth COVID-19 clinical assessment of the COVID-19pipeline products from the pre-clinical developmental phase to the advanced phase.

In COVID-19 report, a detailed description of the drug is proffered including mechanism of action of the drug, clinical studies, NDA approvals (if any), and product development activities comprising the technology, along with COVID-19 collaborations, licensing, mergers and acquisition, funding, designations, and other product-related details.

COVID-19 Screening and Diagnosis

On the precautionary side of the efforts, temperature screening of travelers on various airports is conducted to prevent further spread of the virus. In many countries, incoming passengers are even being screened for fever, cough, and shortness of breath. Any traveler with signs or symptoms of illness is receiving a more comprehensive public health assessment. WHO has urged the nations to speed up their diagnosing and testing of the virus to contain the spread of coronavirus as more governments impose lockdown or stop travel. In an effort to provide efficient diagnosis, the FDA granted an Emergency Use Authorization to its first commercially developed coronavirus test developed by Roche (Cobas SARS-CoV-2 Test). Roche has begun the shipments of first 400,000 COVID-19 tests to laboratories across the USA to begin patient testing under FDA Emergency Use Authorization.

FDA has also approved the use of Thermo Fisher's TaqPath COVID-19 Combo Kit. BioMedomics is working to deploy its COVID-19IgM-IgG Rapid Test, an immunoassay that can yield results from a blood sample in 15 minutes at the point of care. The report covers a detailed analysis of all the diagnostic kits in the development phase. The Chinese government has given its green signal to a 29-minute rapid testing kit for COVID-19which has been developed by Xiamen University and approved by the National Medical Products Administration.

A detailed assessment of the diagnostic tests being developed for the diagnosis of COVID-19 infection, providing information on test developer(s), development geography, technology being used in the test, time to result, and, test sample type.

COVID-19 Treatment Outlook

The COVID-19 treatment outlook of the report helps to build a detailed comprehension of current and emerging trend therapeutic approaches, the impact of upcoming therapies on disease landscape, drivers and barriers, and technological advancement.

Companies such as Gilead Sciences, Roche, Sanofi, Regeneron Moderna, Novavax, Medicago Inc., Altimmune, APEIRON Biologics, Inovio Pharmaceuticals and GlaxoSmithKline are few of the players working towards developing therapies for COVID-19.

Recently, China has recommended the use of Japanese drug Favilavir - being developed by Toyama Chemical (a Fujifilm Subsidiary) in treating COVID-19patients after it has shown its potential and efficacy in curing COVID-19with minimum associated side-effects.

Moreover, earlier the Chinese government also approved the use of Roche's Actemra (tocilizumab), that has been in the market since 2010 for treating serious lung disorders, has shown efficacy in curing serious complications associated with COVID-19.

Gilead's remdesivir, an intravenous treatment, is under phase III of development. The new clinical studies include two clinical trials in China's Hubei province led by the China-Japan Friendship Hospital as well as the recently initiated clinical trial in the United States led by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID).

On the other hand, Sanofi and Regeneron Pharmaceuticals have initiated a clinical program of rheumatoid arthritis drug Kevzara (sarilumab) to treat hospitalized patients with severe COVID-19 coronavirus infection. In the United States, Moderna, along with NIH started a human trial of its potential vaccine for the new coronavirus.

Johnson & Johnson is working with the federal Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority on developing potential treatments for patients who are already infected with COVID-19, where it will check if any older medicines might work against the coronavirus. Few other companies are learning from earlier vaccines from prior coronavirus outbreaks and making them more effective.

The Covid-19 treatment outlook segment gives a thorough detail of emerging therapies by evaluating their impact based on mechanism of action, compliance rate, growing need of the market, increasing patient pool, expected launch year, competition with other therapies, brand value, their impact on the existing treatment scenario and view of the key opinion leaders. The calculated data are presented with relevant tables and graphs to give a clear view of the market at first sight.
