Overview of Global Huntington’s Disease Market

Published Date : Jan 25, 2016

Albany, NY, Jan 25, 2016 - MarketResearchReports.biz has added a new report, titled “EpiCast Report: Huntingtons Disease - Epidemiology Forecast To 2024”, to its growing database.

The research report has been compiled using primary and secondary data. The industry experts have used a SWOT reports and Porter’s five forces reports to offer a holistic view of Huntington’s disease, its history, background of the disease, risk factors, and the complications arising out of it. In order to understand the ever-changing dynamics of the market, the research report also studies the disease through the lens of the political, economic, social, technological, legal, and environmental factors governing the market for its treatments.

Huntington’s disease (HD) is a genetic disorder that progressively degenerates the nerve cells helping the brain’s function. This disease primarily affects the cerebral cortex, the putamen, and the caudate. Over a period of time, as the brain is rendered defunct, the person loses control over movements, decision making ability, recalling power, and controlling emotions. As the disease progresses, it incapacitates the person, with no control over bodily functions, and leads to cognitive and psychiatric disorders, resulting eventually in death.

A parent who has Huntington’s disease passes on a 50% chance of the disease to the child. The disease makes no exception, making males and females equally susceptible to this inheritance. The signs and symptoms of Huntington’s disease are usually seen between the ages of 30-40 years. However, the disease is also seen in some children and seniors. On average, a person suffering from Huntington’s disease will live up to 15-20 years. When the disease is seen amongst 20-year-olds, the condition is termed as juvenile Huntington’s disease. This type of the disease shows a different set of symptoms and has a faster rate of progression.

Some of the symptoms of this disease are anxiety, obsessive behavior, irritability, apathy, and depression. Huntington’s also leads to loss of cognition, which causes inability to focus, impaired vision, and loss of decision making ability. Eventually, the symptoms lead to physical deterioration causing weight loss, involuntary movements, and difficulty in walking, swallowing, and talking.

This dangerous disease is diagnosed with the help of neurological and psychological tests. Furthermore, family history is also reviewed to understand the nature and scope of this disease. Brain scans are also used to understand the damage done to the caudate and putamen. Additionally,genetic testing is conducted to confirm the diagnosis of the disease.

The research report has analyzed some of the important players that are closely connected with the research and treatment of Huntington’s disease treatments. The research report underlines the competitive landscape of this market by analyzing the financial overview, research and development activities, and investment outlook of the key companies for the near future. The research report is aimed at offering a complete review of the disease and the efforts done to manage it.
