Demyelinating diseases are those diseases which affect the nervous system mostly damaging the myelin sheath of neurones. Thus, causing distortion of signals in the affected nerves which further leads to the deficiency in sensation, cognition, movements or impairing of any other physical function carried out by the affected nerve. In addition, demyelinating diseases are classified into two types demyelinating leukodystrophic diseases and demyelinating myelinoclastic diseases. Demyelinating diseases may occur due to genetics irregularities, by infectious agents and by autoimmune reactions, though, at times, the cause may remain unknown. At times demyelination is caused by neuroleptics or extreme exposure to chemical agents.
The symptoms that are present in demyelinating diseases may differ from patient to patient. However, few of the common symptoms may include blurred double vision, ataxia, dysarthria, impaired muscle coordination, loss of sensation, hand paralysis and speech and hearing disorders.
Few of the guiding principles set for treating a person suffering from any of the demyelinating diseases include improving the patient's living environment and lifestyle, counselling, physical exercise and relaxation. A holistic treatment approach is considered more appropriate in such conditions.
The Demand for Demyelinating Diseases Therapeutics Market Expected to Gain Traction in the Coming Years
There are several demyelinating diseases caused due to the breakdown of nervous system. Higher prevalence of such incidences in the recent years is expected to favor the global demyelinating diseases therapeutics market. In other words, demyelinating diseases are often linked with disorders in the human nervous system, which is a part of neurology. Other factors expected to drive the global demyelinating diseases therapeutics market include changing lifestyle and diminishing quality of leaving the environment.
On the other hand, limited options of treatment available for treatment of demyelinating diseases remains the major concern for most players in the market. In addition, most contemporary demyelinating diseases drugs and therapies available in the market do not promise complete cure of such disorders. Moreover, the high-cost and low credibility of the latest drugs are other factors expected to negatively impact the overall market.
The ongoing research and development programs for improving the current durgs used for the treatment of demyelinating diseases are considered as a good news for the market. In addition, novel drugs in R&D pipeline is expected to favor the global demyelinating diseases in the near future. For instance, the recent introduction of monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) is a major factor considered to influence the market growth. These latest drugs are promising higher efficacy compare to current therapies.
On the basis of region, the global demyelinating diseases therapeutics market has been segmented into six key regions namely North America, Western Europe, Eastern Europe, Asia Pacific (APAC), Latin America, and the Middle East & Africa (MEA). North America is considered as one of the major markets for demyelinating diseases therapeutics attributed to the rising number cases of demyelinating diseases in the region. In addition, the occurrence of demyelinating diseases in the U.S has grown significantly over the years leading to a higher demand for its treatment. Further, availability of advanced therapeutics and drugs is supplementing the growth of demyelinating diseases therapeutics market in the region. The European market is also expected to witness a healthy growth of the market owing to rising number of incidence, especially in countries such the U.K., Germany and Spain.
Few of the key players identified in the global demyelinating diseases therapeutics market include Teva Pharmaceutical Industries Ltd., Baxalta, Geneuro Sa, and Pfizer Inc.
