Ataxia-Telangiectasia is a rare genetic disease occurring in children. Ataxia denotes uncoordinated movements during walking and Telangiectasia refers to enlarged blood vessels beneath the skin. The veins appear to be red, spread like a spider in Telangiectasia.
Ataxia-Telangiectasia is a genetically inherited disorder occurring from a autosomal recessive trait. It develops when both the parents lack a copy of nonfunctional gene. Affected people are likely to have high amounts of a alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) in their blood. However the effect of this protein in people with
Ataxia-Telangiectasia patients is unknown.
Ataxia-Telangiectasia is a result of a mutation in the ATM gene. This gene is responsible for producing a protein that regulate growth and division of cells. Many other problems associated with Ataxia-Telangiectasia are imbalance while walking, hand coordination, jerky movements, muscle twitching and disturbed nerve functioning. Ataxia-Telangiectasia patients often require wheel chair support from adolescence.
Ataxia-Telangiectasia Treatment market: Drivers and restraints
Ataxia-Telangiectasia being a rare disease, it is a good platform for developing novel treatment options. Around 1 percent of population in the United States carry one-one each of mutated and normal copy of ATM gene. Investment in research of genetic disorders is growing in the US. Many premium research and academic institutes are conduction research on genetic disorders. Girls and boys are equally affected by Ataxia-Telangiectasia. Hence, Ataxia-Telangiectasia appears a threat to the major population as both genders are at risk. Risk of cancer, mainly blood cancers is also high in patients of Ataxia-Telangiectasia. Rising prevalence of cancer in developed and lower economic regions of the world can contribute towards the growth of the Ataxia-Telangiectasia market.
Ataxia-Telangiectasia has a Potential for new treatments under development and many are currently being tested. This is the major factor contributing to its market growth. Increase in prevalence rate of Ataxia-Telangiectasia combined to other clinical manifestations can drive the growth of the market.
Higher chances of cancer in Ataxia-Telangiectasia patients and treatment of cancer is a major driving factor for its treatment market. However cost of diagnosis especially genetic screening and costly therapies like anti-cancer treatments can be a major setback the Ataxia-Telangiectasia treatment market growth. People in lower economic regions are not awareness of genetic disorders and awareness of Genetic screening is low in these regions. Inappropriate diagnosis can cause a setback to the growth of the Ataxia-Telangiectasia treatment market.

Ataxia-Telangiectasia Treatment market: Overview
The Ataxia-Telangiectasia is expected to see a growth in the coming years. This is because of wide treatment portfolio, ongoing research studies and increasing awareness about genetic and neurodegenerative diseases. The occurrence of this disease is 1 in 100000 people worldwide. N-Acetyl-L-Leucine is a USFDA and EMA approved treatment for Ataxia-Telangiectasia. The life expectancy in Ataxia-Telangiectasia patients is upto 25 years and continues to improve with proper treatment. The diagnosis of Ataxia-Telangiectasia is assumed by the combination of clinical features like ataxia, abnormal eye movement movements, postural unsteadiness, and increased infections. Antibiotic treatment is also preferred as a treatment option to cure infections in Ataxia-Telangiectasia. Multiple treatment options available make Ataxia-Telangiectasia treatment market a lucrative opportunity.
