Cowden syndrome is form of genetically inherited disease which can be characterized by the formation of numerous hamartomas, which are noncancerous growths, resembling the structure of tumors. However, the occurrence of this syndrome increases the risks of developing several types of cancers like breast cancers, thyroid cancer, and uterus cancer among others. The occurrence of hamartomas is mostly found under the mucosal membrane of the skin or nose and also in body parts like the intestines. Studies conducted have associated occurrence of Cowden syndrome and Cowden-like syndrome among the population with the involvement of 4 distinct genes, i.e. the PTEN, SDHB, SDHD, and KLLN. However, most cases of Cowden syndrome can be attributed to the mutation of the PTEN gene, as this gene is involved in production of protein which functions as a tumor-suppressor. The prevalence rate of Cowden syndrome is unknown, and is estimated that 1 in every 200,000 individual gets affected by this syndrome. The presence of such low patient pool has been a major hindrance in the growth of the cowden syndrome market, as it has directly affected the number of individuals under the study for formulation of new treatments and drugs. Similarly, favorable reimbursement policies by the governmental bodies have played a crucial role in supporting the growth of the cowden syndrome market. Moreover, lack of treatment has led to governments of various nations to initiate new studies and research to develop new medications, procedures and other cures for such conditions.
The global cowden syndrome market can be segmented based of site, and treatment. On basis of site the cowden syndrome market can be further classified into colorectal, thyroid, skin (melanoma), breast, endometrium (uterus), kidney, and others.
