Ornithine Transcarbamylase (OTC) Treatment Market

Ornithine Transcarbamylase (OTC) Treatment Market: Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2020 - 2030

Global Ornithine Transcarbamylase (OTC) Treatment Market: Overview

  • Ornithine transcarbamylase (OTC) deficiency, the most common urea cycle disorder, is caused by a genetic defect in a liver enzyme responsible for detoxification of ammonia, which is formed when proteins are broken down in the body. Individuals with OTC deficiency can build up excessive levels of ammonia, which accumulates in the blood and travels to the brain, causing coma, brain damage, and death.
  • OTC deficiency is the most common of urea-cycle disorders, occurring in one in every 40,000 births. The genetic mutation responsible for OTC occurs on the X chromosome. Hence, women are typically carriers, while their sons with the gene suffer the disease. Symptoms include vomiting, refusal to eat, progressive lethargy, and coma.
  • Currently, the only curative approach is liver transplantation. However, this is often associated with significant morbidity and mortality risks both during the procedure and over the long-term. However, for less severe diseases, daily amino acid drugs could be used as off-label treatment options.

Key Driver of Global Ornithine Transcarbamylase (OTC) Treatment Market
