DUBLIN --(Business Wire)--

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of Decision Resources, Inc's new report "Special Report: The Pricing and Reimbursement Environment for Respiratory Disease Therapies" to their offering.

Common respiratory diseases such as asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) make up a large and varied pharmaceutical market sector. These diseases also impose a significant burden on patients, providers, and payers, putting them front and center as the subjects of efforts to improve patient outcomes while containing costs to health systems. Governments and other payers are compelled to invest substantial resources in the management of these disorders. At the same time, payers continue to scrutinize the cost-to-benefit ratio o all therapeutic options very closely. The pharmaceutical industry will need to make a clear case for the role of drug therapy as a critical component in the effective management of respiratory disorders.
