Organ rejection prophylaxis drugs are intended to prevent graft rejection, reduce morbidity, and complications prior to or during transplant surgery. Universal organ rejection prophylaxis drugs involve administration of an antimicrobial agent to contain risk for infection while pre-emptive organ rejection prophylaxis drugs are aimed at neutralizing antigens and antibodies so as to avoid graft rejection by immunosuppression.
Organ Rejection Prophylaxis Drugs Market: Drivers and Restraints
The rising organ replacement surgeries are the prime driver of the organ rejection prophylaxis drugs market. According to the National Kidney Foundation, 107 kidney transplants took place in the U.S. in 2014. According to Organ Donation Foundation of South Africa (ODF), 512 solid organs and corneas were transplanted in South Africa, in 2016 and 4 300 patients were in waiting lines for organs. The long waiting times owing to the high demand for organ transplant is expected to drive a sustainable market. According to estimates of the American Transplant Foundation, 115,000 patients in the U.S. are on the waiting list for an organ transplant.
The growing risk factors resulting in organ damage such as trauma, increase in geriatric patients and diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, and stroke is driving a large patient base for an organ transplant. The growing rates of organ donations owing to awareness is another driver of the market. According to the American Transplant Foundation, one-fourth donors are not biologically related to the recipient, resulting in greater risk of organ rejection.
However, the constraints such as high cost of organ transplant surgery, scarcity of organs, and the high cost of drugs coupled are hampering the organ rejection prophylaxis drugs market. Ethical issues such as possible negative externalities are also restricting the market. Concerns regarding social and economic inequality owing to wealthy individuals benefiting and disadvantaging poor people is another barrier that has to be mitigated. The poor healthcare infrastructure and the paucity of trained surgeons is another barrier to the market.
