Nutrition Products For Cachexia Market Overview
Nutrition Products For Cachexia Market size is estimated to reach $2.9 billion by 2027, growing at a CAGR of 7.3% during the forecast period 2022-2027. Cachexia is a medical condition known as ‘wasting syndrome’ that causes severe weight loss, muscle loss, and loss of body fats. This condition is mostly seen in people who are in the late stage of cancer, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD), Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV) or acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), kidney disease, and congestive heart failure (CHF). For instance, when the person is at the last stage of cancer, involuntary weight loss occurs affecting adipose tissue, and there is also wasting and weakness of skeletal muscles. One-third of all types of cancer patients lose more than 5% of their original body weight which is the common symptom of cancer cachexia. To combat cachexia, a multidisciplinary strategy is presently regarded as the best option, with dietary management advised as an integral aspect of multimodal therapy. In cachectic patients, adequate nutritional therapy is critical for providing the fundamental building blocks needed to maintain and regenerate tissue. Nutrition is also important for providing energy and micronutrients, which are required to fuel and accelerate metabolic activities. Various nutrients have been implicated in the regulation and restoration of metabolic processes underlying cachectic patients' wasting, in addition to nourishing them. Also, drugs like megestrol acetate, tetrahydrocannibinol, oxandrolone, and anti-inflammatory drugs play major roles. According to the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), 1 in 5 persons will develop cancer during their lifetime, with 1 in 8 men and 1 in 11 women dying from the disease. As a result, the rising global burden of cancer also raises the risk of cancer cachexia, a condition marked by systemic inflammation, a negative protein, and energy balance, and an involuntary loss of lean body mass.
