Innovations in IV Medications for Life-threatening OTC Deficiency Surface amidst COVID-19 Outbreak

Since OTC deficiency is a rare X-linked genetic disorder, companies in the ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) deficiency treatment market are under pressure to increase the availability of drugs amidst the COVID-19 (coronavirus) outbreak. Messenger RNA drug developer Arcturus Therapeutics has not only received the FDA’s (Food & Drug Association) approval for clinical trials of ARCT-810, an investigational treatment for OTC deficiency, but is also testing its coronavirus vaccine candidate. Thus, companies in the ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) deficiency treatment market are tapping revenue opportunities by innovating in COVID-19 vaccines.

OTC deficiency is a life-threatening disorder, which needs extra care and attention during the COVID-19 pandemic. Companies are collaborating with retail and hospital pharmacies to avoid supply shocks for OTC deficiency medications, as most individuals are opting for remote healthcare diagnosis. They are innovating in intravenous (IV) medications since no FDA-approved drugs exist for the disorder.

Gene Therapy Helps Minimize Neurological Deficits and Liver Damage in Patients

Gene therapy holds promising potentials in ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) deficiency treatment. The Boston Children’s Hospital is creating awareness about gene therapy, since OTC deficiency is a genetic condition caused due to the mutation of the OTC gene. By providing a healthy copy of the OTC gene through gene therapy, doctors aim to reduce incidence of neurological deficits and liver damage. Liver transplantation is another solution for ornithine transcarbamylase deficiency treatment.

Companies in the ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) deficiency treatment market are increasing their production capabilities to manufacture BUPHENYL® (sodium phenylbutyrate) tablets and powder for oral administration. Since urea cycle disorders are commonly associated with the OTC deficiency, manufacturers in the ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) deficiency treatment market are increasing the availability of BUPHENYL® to minimize adverse events in patients. BUPHENYL® is being used as an adjunctive therapy for chronic management of OTC deficiency.

Safety Information Enables Management of Extremely High Levels of Ammonia in Blood

Ravicti has become the gold standard for the treatment of the OTC deficiency. This oral liquid is being increasingly used for long-term management of high blood levels containing ammonia that commonly lead to urea cycle disorders (UCDs). Healthcare practitioners are recommending low-protein diet and dietary supplements to OTC deficiency patients. However, Ravicti has limitations for the treatment of extremely high levels of ammonia in the blood, especially in patients with UCD. This explains why the market is estimated to register a modest CAGR of ~4% during the forecast period. Hence, companies in the ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) deficiency treatment market are increasing awareness about the safety of Ravicti to avoid serious side effects in patients.

OTC deficiency patients with kidney and liver problems need to seek doctor’s consultation before consuming Ravicti. Clinicians are providing special care to pregnant women and women who are breastfeeding to avoid any adverse events in infants.

Ammonul IV Holds Promising Potentials for Lowering Ammonia Levels in OTC Deficiency Patients

The FDA prescribed information is being used by medical practitioners to administer the doses of Ammonul in OTC deficiency patients. Genetics and metabolic experts are recommending hemodialysis as an effective solution to reduce plasma ammonia in OTC deficiency patients. As such, Ammonul is being extensively taken via intravenous administration to reduce the severity of UCDs. Ammonul IV helps in removing glycine and glutamate from plasma, thereby reducing contribution to ammonia formation. Thus, companies in the ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) deficiency treatment market are increasing their R&D capabilities to develop improved formulations of Ammonul IV.

Since the management and diagnosis of UCD is complex, pathologists, nephrologists, and geneticists are stepping in to lower ammonia levels in the blood of OTC deficiency patients.

Nitrogen Scavenger Therapy Ensures Long-term UCD Management

The ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) deficiency treatment market is projected to reach ~US$ 900 Mn by the end of 2030. However, limited consensus regarding long-term management approaches for OTC deficiency is potentially inhibiting market growth. Hence, pharmaceutical companies are introducing efficacious dietary supplements to keep ammonia levels in the blood under control. On the other hand, nitrogen scavenger therapy is being highly publicized to ensure long-term UCD management and to minimize the nitrogen load.

Companies in the ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) deficiency treatment market are increasing awareness about a multidisciplinary approach for long-term UCD management. Since the male population is at a higher risk of being susceptible to the OTC deficiency, biochemical geneticists, dieticians and neuropsychologists are collaborating to introduce guidelines associated with chronic ammonia targets.

Dieticians Deliver Complex Calculations for Intake of Protein and Dietary Supplements

It has been found that a dietician’s consultation helps to improve clinical outcomes in OTC deficiency patients. Along with dietary supplements, nutritionists are recommending low-protein diets to improve the quality of life for OTC deficiency individuals. Patients that are adherent to the UCD therapy are also warranted for genetic testing to ensure successful management of OTC deficiency. Dieticians are playing an instrumental role in complex calculations related to the intake of protein and dietary supplements, which depends on different variables such as age-related growth rate, physical activity, and residual urea cycle function.

Providing the right amount of protein is necessary for efficient management of the OTC deficiency. Hence, companies in the ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) deficiency treatment market are suggesting routine diagnosis of the rare disorder in order to increase clinical numbers. IV and oral drugs are being routinely used for long-term management of UCD in OTC deficiency patients.

Analysts’  Viewpoint

Since UCD associated with OTC deficiency can be potentially life threating for patients amidst the COVID-19 pandemic, companies in the ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) deficiency treatment market are boosting their production capacities to increase the availability of IV and oral drugs. Gene therapy and nitrogen scavenger therapy are gaining popularity for long-term management of ammonia in blood streams. Since there is a lack of FDA-approved drugs for the OTC deficiency, companies in the ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) deficiency treatment market should increase their R&D capabilities to innovate in IV medications. Companies should innovate in dietary supplements, since a close check on daily intake of protein and supplements helps to improve patient quality of life.
