Dermatophytic Onychomycosis Therapeutics Market: Global Market Intelligence

Dermatophytic onychomycosis also referred to as ringworm of the nail is one of the most common fungal infections of the nails. This infection results in the change in appearance of the nails such as, increased opaqueness and whitening along with increased thickening and fragility. Tinea unguium specifically describes the dermatophytic invasion of the nail plates and is the most common in cases when an artificial nail is applied as the nails are abraded with the help of an emery board and these boards have a probability of carrying infection and also water collection under the nail results in creation of moist and warm environment favorable for fungal growth. Toenails are more commonly affected than finger nails. Onychomycosis infections accounts for one third of fungal skin infections and the diagnosis can be facilitated with the help of direct microscopy imaging of potassium hydroxide preparation or culture before opting for the treatment of the infection.

This infection can lead to serious health conditions such as it can decrease the peripheral circulation and would result in the conditions such as diabetic foot ulcers, and venous stasis. There are three main classes of organisms that cause onychomycosis namely, dermatophytes (fungi), nondermatophyte molds and yeast. Infection resulting from all these three classes of organisms cause similar symptoms along with similar visual appearance. Dermatophytes such as Microsporum, Epidermophyton and Trichophyton species are the most common dermatophytes responsible for infection and are the most common cause of onychomycosis worldwide. Whereas nondermatophyte molds and yeasts are less common causes of infection accounting for around 2% and 8% of the total onychomycosis infections.

Multiple Myeloma Therapeutics Market: Future Demand & Growth Analysis

Multiple myeloma is a blood disorder related to leukemia and lymphoma, since it generally arises in bone marrow. In multiple myeloma, certain white blood cells (WBCs) begin to proliferate abnormally within the bone marrow. These cells are known as plasma cells. Plasma cells are responsible for manufacturing antibodies in the body that help fight against any infection. In multiple myeloma, excessive plasma cells release abnormal level of proteins in blood and bones. These excess levels of proteins accumulate throughout the body, and result in damaging organs.
 
The plasma cells while multiplying, create problems inside bones and crowd out healthy blood cells. Chemicals are released by proliferating myeloma plasma cells that result in dissolving bone. Due to this, bones become weak and this is known as lytic lesions. Constant rise in number of these plasma cells in bone marrow, results in spill out from the bone and start depositing in other body part causing organ damage.

Multiple myeloma majorly affects bone, blood and kidney. Patients suffering from multiple myeloma usually show various symptoms such as bone pain, loss of appetite, fatigue and increased urination. Various tests are performed in order to confirm the disease that includes blood tests, urine tests and bone marrow tests. Blood tests include beta-2 microglobulin level test, complete blood count, serum protein electrophoresis, freelite testing and immunofixation electrophoresis. Urine tests include urine protein electrophoresis and measurement of Bence Jones protein. Bone marrow tests include imaging through different imaging modalities such as X-ray, cytogenetic analysis, and plasma cell labeling index test.
 
Till date there is no cure for multiple myeloma, however, various treatments are efficient in slowing down the progression of disease. Initial therapy to treat the disease is known as induction therapy. This is followed by stem cell transplantation (SCT). In stem cell transplantation, patient’s stem cells are extracted with the help of machine and are frozen and stored. Then these cells are transplanted into the patient body. Chemotherapy is also performed on the patients that include uptake of various drugs such as Adriamycin, Alkeran, Cytoxan, Oncovin, Pomalyst, Revlimid, Thalomid and Velcade.
 
The market for multiple myeloma therapeutics is expected to grow with rising incidences of the disease amongst population. The American Cancer Society (ACS) has estimated that by the end of 2014, nearly 24,050 new cases of multiple myeloma will be diagnosed in the U.S. Multiple myeloma is common amongst men than in women and also occurs frequently with increasing age. Hence, rise in geriatric population across the globe will undoubtedly augment the growth of multiple myeloma therapeutics market during the study period. The World Health Organization (WHO) has estimated that by 2050, nearly 2,000 million people will belong to geriatric population.
