Wilson’s Disease Drugs Market By Indication (Hepatic, Neuropsychiatric, Ophthalmic And Others), By Drug Class (Chelators, Minerals, Pipeline Analysis) - Growth, Future Prospects & Competitive Analysis, 2017 – 2025

Wilson’s disease occurs equally in both male and female population, but research studies have cited differences in the sex specific phenotypes. Hepatic symptoms occurs 55%-60% more in the female population. Frank psychosis is more prevalent in the male population which is often mistaken as a bipolar disorder or schizophrenia. In the near future gene therapy can be used to transfer ATPB7 gene if sufficient transgene of ATPB7 is expressed in the liver cells for longer duration of time. It is very important for the accurate diagnosis of Wilson’s disease or could lead to fatal consequences if not done appropriately.

The early diagnosis of Wilson’s disease is primarily based on the multiple indications such as hepatic, neuropsychiatric, ophthalmic and others. The chelators are the first line of therapy which includes Penicillamine and trientine. Zinc acetate is considered as the only mineral prescribed for the patients that are resistant to chelators therapy. Data mining and market estimation is covered in the scope of the report to understand the opportunity for novel drug discovery in the treatment of Wilson’s disease.

Wilson’s Disease Drugs Market

According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services in 2015 countrywide survey the prevalence of Wilson’s disease in the United States is 1 in 55,000 births with the Wilson’s disease allele frequency rate of 0.00428. North America is the most significant market in the Wilson’s disease treatment drugs market on account of high Wilson’s disease heterozygote frequency rate of 0.855% in the Caucasian population. The autosomal recessive rate of Wilson’s disease is approximately 25% in Europe with patients being resistant to chelators therapy and E.U. approving only zinc acetate for Wilson’s disease management in Europe. Being an orphan disease the European Medical Agency is proactively investing in the novel drug discovery for Wilson’s disease. The neuropsychiatric indications related to Wilson’s disease are on a rise in Asia Pacific. The market is heavily dependent on treatment drugs imported from U.S. and Europe which creates a huge opportunity for the existing generic market in Asia Pacific.
