Early during the pandemic, chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine were promoted as efficacious treatments against COVID-19. But a recent report dismissed both drugs showing that they suppress viral growth in the epithelial kidney cell line Vero E6 but not in the relevant epithelial lung Calu-3 cells. Remdesivir initially developed for Ebola treatment, is presently the only antiviral therapy used to effectively treat COVID-19 patients and was shown to improve symptoms in 68% of treated patients in clinical trials. However, with only one efficacious antiviral therapy on the market, there remains a need to identify and provide additional drugs to treat COVID-19 patients. Given the current pandemic and the need for practicality, these drugs should ideally be FDA approved so they can be rapidly repurposed for COVID-19 treatment. SARS-CoV requires Ca2+ ions for host cell entrance and based on the connection between SARS-CoV and SARS-CoV-2, it is very likely that the exact necessities exist for both viruses. Moreover, as per the recent report of bioRxiv published in July 2020, there is evidence that calcium channel blockers (CCB) inhibit viral infections at the cell entry-level. Therefore, treatment with verapamil or diltiazem inhibits viral infection.
Hypertension was among the general comorbidities seen in COVID-19 infected patients. As per the recent US report, 49.7% of patients had hypertension in 178 patients. Diltiazem may be helpful to treat hypertension associated with COVID-19. Diltiazem is a calcium channel blocker used to treat hypertension, which works by relaxing the muscles of the heart and blood vessels.
Since the COVID-19 outbreak reached a pandemic status, the entire global supply chain has been affected; however, various pharmaceutical companies are developing vaccines and drugs to combat the pandemic. Therefore, COVID-19 had a substantial positive impact on the diltiazem market.
Based on application, the diltiazem market is segmented into segmented into angina, hypertension, and others. In 2021, the hypertension segment held the largest share of the market, by application. Whereas the Angina segment is expected to grow at the fastest CAGR during the coming years. Diltiazem is used to treat high blood pressure and to control angina (chest pain). Diltiazem is in a class of medications called calcium-channel blockers. It works by relaxing the blood vessels, so the heart does not have to pump as hard. It also increases the supply of blood and oxygen to the heart. Thus, rising heart disease and angina is likely to boost the growth of market. For instance, Heart disease cases nearly doubled over the period from 271 million in 1990 to 523 million in 2019, and the number of heart disease deaths rose from 12.1 million to 18.6 million. In 2019, the majority of heart disease deaths were attributed to ischemic heart disease and stroke, with a steady increase from 1990.
Bausch Health; Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd; Mylan N.V; Athenex; Pfizer, Inc; Glenmark; Sandoz (Novartis Ag); Sun Pharmaceutical Company Ltd; Hikma Pharmaceuticals; and Zydus Pharmaceuticals are among the companies operating in the diltiazem market.
