Addison's disease is characterized by an uncommon disorder with insufficient production of the steroid hormones known as aldosterone and cortisol from the cells of adrenal glands. Moreover, indications of Addison's disease are known as primary adrenal insufficiency, resulting from insufficient production of two hormones cortisol and aldosterone. Symptoms associated with Addison’s disease include gastrointestinal abnormalities, fatigue, and changes in skin color. Furthermore, mood changes and behavior may occur in some individuals with Addison's disease. The need for treatment of Addison’s disease is growing due to rising prevalence of disease, increasing income in developed economies, and growing awareness. Furthermore, rising health expenditure is propelling the global market. Currently, the U.S. and EU5 countries are the key markets for Addison’s disease treatment, where the well-being of life with symptoms that are tough to manage have become controllable. The Addison’s disease treatment market is expected to expand at a high growth rate during the forecast period. Moreover, lack of proper diagnosis acts as a restraint of the market, especially in developing countries.
Addison’s disease requires lifelong treatment with steroid replacement therapy. Glucocorticoid and mineralocorticoid replacement therapy is currently most widely used for the treatment of Addison's disease. Additional, hydrocortisone is one of the most preferred drugs belonging to the glucocorticoid class due to its short half-life which enables it to be quickly absorbed into the blood stream. Furthermore, long acting glucocorticoids such as dexamethasone and prednisone are beneficial for once daily dosing schedule. These do not replicate the physiological daily rhythm of endogenous cortisol production in the body, which results in excess glucocorticoid levels overnight. Rarely prescribed fludrocortisone belongs to the mineralocorticoid class and is frequently prescribed along with hydrocortisone.
