Muscular dystrophy: Market overview

A muscular dystrophy is a group of muscle disease that causes an increasing weakening and breakdown of degeneration of skeletal muscles. The individuals suffering from muscular dystrophy start losing muscle mass. The most common cause of muscular dystrophy is the mutation of the protein dystrophin. It is also caused by the genetic mutations that interfere with the muscle protein production. Factors such as the site of affected muscles, the degree of weakness, progression speed, and the first sign of symptoms will decide the type of muscular dystrophy.

According to a senior market research analyst at Technavio, “Dystrophin is a part of complex group of proteins that enable muscles to work correctly. There are over 30 various types of dystrophies with a few being the most common types such as Duchenne muscular dystrophy, Becker muscular dystrophy, and limb-girdle muscular dystrophy. Duchenne muscular dystrophy occurs mostly in boys and very rarely in girls. According to various studies, the average life expectancy of patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy is around 26 years, while the life expectancy of other types of muscular dystrophies is slightly higher.”

Muscular dystrophy: Segmentation analysis

This pipeline analysis report segments the muscular dystrophy market based on therapies employed (monotherapy), RoA (intravenous and parenteral), therapeutic modality (gene and oligonucleotides), targets (micro-dystrophin, exon 51, exon 53, beta-sarcoglycan, alpha-sarcoglycan, dysferlin, anoctamin 5, gamma-sarcoglycan, and mini-dystrophin), MoA (gene therapy and antisense gene therapy), geographical segmentation (US, UK, and France) and recruitment status (active, not recruiting and recruiting). It provides an in-depth analysis of the prominent factors influencing the market, including drivers, opportunities, trends, and industry-specific challenges.

Based on the mechanism of action, around 88% of the molecules that are being investigated for the treatment of muscular dystrophy are gene therapy.
