Adrenocorticotropic Hormone (ACTH) Market: Introduction
According to the report, the global adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) market was valued at US$ 1.47 Bn in 2018 and is projected to expand at a CAGR of ~4% from 2019 to 2027. Multiple applications and rise in number of patients with chronic diseases are the major factors anticipated to drive the global adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) market from 2019 to 2027.
Multiple Applications and Rise in Prevalence of Chronic Diseases to Drive Global Market
H.P. Acthar Gel was the primary corticotropin product from Questcor Pharmaceuticals, Inc., which was acquired by Mallinckrodt in August 2014. The U.S. FDA approved Acthar for the treatment of 19 indications. The rate of infantile spasm is estimated to be 2.5 to 6.0 cases per 10,000 live births. Its prevalence rate is 1.5 to 2.0 cases per 10,000 children aged 10 years or younger, based on data published in the National Organization for Rare Disorders, Inc. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), about 23% adults in the U.S., which is more than 54 million people, have arthritis. The disease is expected to affect 78 million adults in the country by 2040.
According to data published in the National Center for Biotechnology Information in 2019, the estimated prevalence of polymyositis and dermatomyositis (PM/DM) is 5 to 22 per 100,000 people, and approximately 1.2 million to 1.9 million persons are at risk per year. Adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) as a treatment for proteinuria due to nephrotic syndrome (NS) has re-emerged in the last decade. Nephrotic syndrome is one of the most common chronic renal diseases in children. It has an incidence of 2 to 7 per 100,000 population and a prevalence of 16 per 100,000, well above the 1 per 1 million incidence of chronic renal failure in children. Hence, rise in cases of target diseases and applications of corticotropin in various indications boost the growth of the global market.
