An astrovirus (HAstV) is a form of RNA virus which is mainly responsible for affecting the intestinal system. Astrovirus infection is quite more prevalent in children aged between 1 and 10 years and rarely affect adults. Astrovirus has a single-strand RNA genome and can survive for prolonged periods of time. The virus is common during the cold winter months as they exist at a temperature of less than 20 degree Celsius. Astrovirus infection can cause a severe situation of stomach flu, which is also commonly known as gastroenteritis. Moreover, astrovirus infection can also cause the severe condition of diarrhea and vomiting. Astrovirus infection is one of the most common causes of childhood acute diarrhea. The infectious astrovirus can cause more serious illness in children with cancer and compromised immune systems. Astrovirus infection is considered as an important cause of viral gastroenteritis. An astrovirus is a communicable infection that is transmitted from person-to-person by the fecal-oral route. Presently, there is no specific treatment or vaccines available for astrovirus infection. But a number of therapies are adopted to treat astrovirus infection.
Growing adoption of technologically advanced molecular techniques and rising incidence of acute diarrhea among children is expected to increase demand for astrovirus infection treatment market. Increasing government funding in the healthcare sector and growing trend of pharmaceutical companies to manufacture novel drugs are some more factors fueling the market growth of the global astrovirus infection treatment market. However, the absence of absolute treatment and limited efficacy of the drugs available in the market is expected to hamper the revenue growth of the global astrovirus infection treatment market during the forecast period.
