Incidence of Breast cancer and Drug Market Potential
According to the American Cancer Society:
• In 2017 over 250,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women and over 2,400 in men;
• Approximately 40,000 women and 440 men died of breast cancer in 2015;
• There are over 3.1 million women living with a history of breast cancer.
Approximately 20% of breast cancer patients are at risk of breast cancer recurrence 5-20 years after initial treatment. Recurrence can occur locally (in the treated breast or near the mastectomy scar) or appear as a metastatic disease in distant organs. To date there is no treatment to eradicate metastatic disease. Therefore, it is essential to develop new therapeutic approaches to confront metastatic disease before it emerges.
ResCure is developing a novel approach to preventing and treating metastatic recurrence of breast cancer.


Market Assessment
According to a 2015 Global Business Intelligence report, the global breast cancer therapeutics market was valued at $10.4 billion in 2014, and is expected to reach $17.2 billion by 2021, at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7.3%.
