Castleman Disease Treatment Market Segmented By therapy such as Monoclonal Antibodies, Chemotherapy, Radiation Therapy, Immunotherapy, Corticosteroids and Antiviral Drugs
Castleman disease is a rare condition of lymph nodes and similar tissues. This condition occurs when too many non-cancer cells started to grow in the lymph node. After initial growth hard growth started to form. Usually, it occurs in the chest, abdomen or neck. This condition is also called as angiofollicular lymph node hyperplasia. There are no known risk factors for castleman disease, but it usually occur in adults with weakened immune system.
There are two types of castleman disease unicentric and multicentric. Unicentric castleman disease affects only a single area or group of lymph nodes while multicentric castleman disease can affect lymphoid tissues around the body. Castleman disease is not life threatening except for the HIV-associated multicentric castleman disease.
The factor driving the growth of the castleman disease market is the life style. In today's time, immune system of people is getting weaker due to various life style conditions. Increasing prevalence of AIDS is also driving the growth of castleman disease treatment market. Government support for the development of orphan drugs and allowing premium pricing of these drugs will be helpful in generating high revenue for companies. High unmet need also expected to drive the growth of castlemans disease treatment market.
