Report Coverage

Neurodegenerative diseases refer to the neurological diseases that mainly affect the neurons of human brains. Neurodegenerative disease imposes not only a substantial burden on global healthcare cost but also on the mental and physical health of the population. Alzheimer’s Disease, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple sclerosis, and amyotrophic lateral sclerosis are the major neurodegenerative diseases. According to the European Multiple Sclerosis Platform (EMSP), approximately 762,760 people in Europe were estimated to have multiple sclerosis in 2015.

According to the European Parkinson’s Disease Association, more than 1.2 million people in Europe are living with Parkinson’s Disease, which is expected to double by 2030. Neurodegenerative diseases advance with age; the number of neurodegenerative diseases cases is expected to increase dramatically as the life span of people in many countries continues to increase. Molecular epidemiology and molecular techniques such as genomics, proteomics, and others have provided better insights into the diseases resulting in increased research on novel therapy and presence of potential pipeline drugs candidates. Government research grants, strategic research collaborations, high pricing of the drugs, and active government support have resulted in a huge surge in demand for neurodegenerative diseases drugs.
