"Designing Growth Strategies is in our DNA"
Mycosis fungoides is a rare disease known as cutaneous T-cell lymphoma (CTCL). CTCL comprises of T-cell non-hodgkin lymphomas. This disease is considered to grow slow at an early stage and is mainly seen in a patient older than 50 years. The development of CTCL is most common in men when compared to women. Often the skin of a patient suffering from mycosis fungoides becomes infiltered leading to the formation of plaques and nodles that are composed of lymphocytes. This disease consists of four major stages with various different symptoms at each stage. In stage 1 general sign of mycosis fungoides with itching and pain in the affected area is observed. Stage 2 deals with the formation of plaque or infiltrating stage. Additionally, lymph nodes are formed. Furthermore, stage 3 is considered to be most important stage as the disease may lead to the formation of tumours which might spread throughout the body in stage 4.Various health complications can be observed once the disease is spread throughout the body which includes gastrointestinal problems, liver and speen enlargement, difficulty in swallowing, and in some cases, heart and brain may also be affected. Thus, different treatment is advised by physicians depending on the severity of the disease which is boosting the market growth during the forecast period. For instance, a combination of topical steroids and localized radiation is advised. For patients being diagnosed with stage 2 are recommended to HDAC inhibitors and extracorporeal photophoresis. Monoclonal antibodies are advised for patients suffering from the last stage of the disease.
Increase in prevalence of mycosis fungoides due to unhygenic lifestyle, increase in the geriatric patient population, a rise in large patient population suffering with the weak immune system, a rise in lymphoma cancer incidence, and others are some of the factors that are driving the growth of the market during the forecast period. According to the National Institute of Health (NIH), it is estimated that the prevalence rate of mycosis is 1 in per 100,000 to 350,000 individuals. Furthermore, a rise in demand for various treatment options based on the severity of the disease is also triggering market growth. This in turn, is boosting the manufacturers to launch new products for faster recovery. Along with this, technological advancement in the treatment of mycosis fungoides associated with chemotherapy is also propelling market growth. Moreover, the rise in demand for the monoclonal antibody as first-line therapy is also propagating the market growth in the near future.
