Prion Disease Treatment Market

Prion Disease Treatment Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2021-2031

Prion Disease Treatment Market: Introduction

Prion Disease is a rare advanced neurodegenerative disorder or zoonotic disease that affects humans and animals. It is caused by incorrect folding of proteins (PrP) in the brain and damages brain tissues. This damage causes tiny holes to develop in the brain and makes it look like a sponge.

Cases of prion are rarely found in humans. Most commonly observed forms of prion that affect the nervous system are Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) and Bovine Spongiform Encephalopathy (BSE). Anxiety, depression, muscle jerks or tremors, loss of physical coordination, swallowing difficulties, and other symptoms are common in infected humans. Different isoforms of prion affect different animals, for instance, BES in cattle, which is also known as mad cow disease, Scrapie in sheep, and chronic wasting disease in deer.

Key Factors and Developments in Prion Disease Treatment Market

  • The prion disease treatment market is driven by the genetic history of prion disease, a high rate of eating infected meat, and government initiatives for orphan drug advancements
  • Prion is a fatal disease, and currently no proper treatment is available for it. Antisense technology is the only therapy available. However, several countries are discovering some novel therapies to combat it.
  • In August 2019, the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, a part of the National Institute of Health Services, and Ionis Pharma developed novel therapies for the treatment of prion using Antisense technology ASO1 and ASO2. Antisense oligonucleotides help to reduce the level of prion proteins, to extend the survival of animals and also to delay symptoms in prophylactic paradigms. The antisense technology is used to regulate the growth of specific proteins, making it possible to halt the misfolding of proteins. The technology presents significant opportunities to develop novel therapies for neurological disease.
  • The COVID-19 pandemic has had a great impact on global health and security. This pandemic has impacted more on mental and psychological health of people, especially the elderly population and patients with neurological diseases. Patients suffering from neurodegenerative diseases are particularly vulnerable due to the presence of other comorbidities. Neurodegenerative diseases, such as prion, are incurable neurological disorders in which patients face problems such as loss of neurons. Therefore, R&D departments of several organizations are working to find a cure using the latest technology.

North America to Capture Major Share of Prion Disease Treatment Market

  • North America is a prominent market for prion disease treatment and diagnostics due to high prevalence of BSE and CWD. About 300 cases are recorded every year in the U.S. The death rate is variable in humans; it was 1.2 cases per million in the country in 2020.
  • Europe is also at the forefront of prion disease diagnostics and treatment due to technological advancements. Furthermore, development of ultramodern technologies is anticipated to augment the prion disease treatment market in the region during the forecast period. Chronic wasting disease accounts for the majority of cases in Europe.
  • The prion disease market in Asia pacific is expanding due to adoption of new advanced technology and digital solutions
