Lysosomal Acid Lipase Deficiency Treatment Market Segmentation Analysis- By Indication
The Lysosomal Acid Lipase Deficiency Treatment Market based on indication can be further segmented into Wolman Disease and Cholesteryl Ester Storage Disease. Wolman disease held a dominant market share in the year 2020. It is owing to its high prevalence at birth and with no apparent symptoms as well. Additionally, the indication is only visible post diarrhea, vomiting, and acute form of jaundice. Moreover, the fatality due to the following sign is relatively higher close to 1 in 3 children fails to make it through. Additionally, the affected children showed severe malnutrition, adrenal calcifications, and moreover deaths.
However, CESD or Cholesteryl Ester Storage Disease is estimated to be the fastest-growing, with a CAGR of 11.1% over the forecast period of 2021-2026. The following is the condition that is felt when the genetic disorder only shows up in childhood and not during the phase of an infant. Moreover, the situation is less severe than the former, as the chance of fatality reduces to 1 in 10, and that too even after developing any cardiovascular diseases because of high triglycerides. Moreover, the condition can be diagnosed till the age of 40.
Lysosomal Acid Lipase Deficiency Treatment Market Segmentation analysis- By Treatment
The Lysosomal Acid Lipase Deficiency Treatment Market based on treatment can be further segmented into Enzyme Replacement Therapy, Lipid Modifying Agents, Stem Cell Therapy, Surgery, and Supportive Care. The lipid-modifying agents held a dominant market share in the year 2020. It is owing to their low cost and usage across the age group to assist in cholesterol metabolism. For example, Ezetimibe and statin as the modifying agents have been used as a combination that has helped achieve favorable results at a much faster rate than monotherapy. As per a study conducted amongst 1500 patients, the LDL-C < 100 and < 70 mg/Dl when the patients were given Ezetimibe and statin, however a higher titration of mono therapeutic drug known as rosuvastatin provided with the same result in a higher duration of time.
However, enzyme replacement therapy is estimated to be the fastest-growing, with a CAGR of 11.3% over the forecast period of 2021-2026. It is owing to optimal results post such procedure than the other methods. In the following procedure, the replacement enzymes are given to the affected patient via IV infusions. Moreover, by receiving these enzymes, the body can provide a function which it was not able to do before.
Lysosomal Acid Lipase Deficiency Treatment Market Segmentation analysis- By Geography
The Lysosomal Acid Lipase Deficiency Treatment Market market based on Geography can be further segmented into North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific, South America, and the Rest of the World. North America’s region held a dominant market share of 36% as compared to the other regions. It is owing to the ready adoption of the FDA to regulate more and more drugs to help in cholesterol management and overall prevention of developing severity due to cardiovascular diseases. FDA has approved six drugs in the past 1.5 years related to cholesterol management and cultured enzyme medicines.
Moreover, the Asia-Pacific region is set to offer lucrative growth opportunities to marketers. It is owing to the recent technological diagnostic advancement in the countries such as Korea and Japan, which have made diagnostic procedures more accessible, faster, and reliable. Furthermore, the tests error ratio has been tried to be bought down below 3% on average.
Lysosomal Acid Lipase Deficiency Treatment Market Drivers
The technological advancement in diagnostic procedures is driving the market forward.
The most prominent methodology to detect the LAL deficiency was done by genetic mutation testing along with identifying the mutations of the LIPA gene. Moreover, the enzymes were collected and measured in the cultured fibroblasts, peripheral leukocytes, or even liver tissue. However, the test results varied between untestable and 16% of the normal as per the assays used. Moreover, the assays used could not help in noticing the disease severity, and even the lab results across the state couldn’t be compared. But, for now, various new technology has been launched to determine the LAL activity. The technology uses “dried blood spots.” Additionally, Lalistat is used as it is a highly specific inhibitor of the LAL. Therefore, a cross-comparison can be drawn, as the total lipase activity can be differentiated with the lipase activity with Lalistat 2.
Additionally, the technology offers benefits such as small sample size, specimen transport, as stable temperature. Furthermore, LIPA gene analysis is also helpful in the diagnosis of LAL-D. To date, over 40 loss-of-function LIPA mutations have been identified.
The management techniques have advanced and are a driving factor for the market.
HMG-CoA was predominantly used in various clinical research, and in one of the trials, the lipid parameters improved, and additionally, reduction in cholesterol synthesis and decreased secretion of apo B-containing lipoproteins were observed. But the studies didn’t show many improvements when the trial was conducted on others. For 12 people given the HMG-CoA, no improvement was seen. Only later, the FDA agreed to launch the first-ever treatment known as Sebi lipase alfa, a recombinant human enzyme replacement. The medication helped in reducing the LDL-C by 28% in the control group as with 6% of the placebo group. Moreover, the cases of anaphylaxis have been bought down by up to 2% in all the IV treatments provided. Thus, the following medication has reduced the fatality by a considerable amount, and moreover, the management within the infants, adults, and children has improved.
Lysosomal Acid Lipase Deficiency Treatment Market Challenges
The prevalence of the condition is rare, and the treatment costs are high; hence, the market reach would be limited.
Since the following condition is extremely rare and is only found in between 1:40,000 to 1:300,000, the market participants cannot run deep and vast.
