The global hunter syndrome treatment market size is expected to reach a value of USD 1.52 billion by 2026, expanding at a CAGR of 7.1%, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. High unmet needs, robust pipeline, increasing awareness about this rare disease and growing R&D activities for the development of novel therapies are expected to drive market growth over the forecast period.
Hunter syndrome, also referred as mucopolysaccharidosis type II (MPS II), is a rare genetic disorder caused by the missing or malfunctioning iduronate-2-sulfatase enzyme. According to the data published by the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, MPS II syndrome occurs in around 1 in every 100,000 to 150,000 male births.
Presently, there are no approved curative therapies for the treatment of Hunter syndrome. The available treatment options such as enzyme replacement therapy (ERT) and hematopoietic stem cell transplant (HSCT) are focused on providing symptomatic relief and management of complications associated with disease progression. Shire plc’s Elaprase (idursulfase) is the only key drug available for the treatment of Hunter syndrome worldwide, with GC Pharma’s Hunterase (idursulfase beta) being approved only in South Korea.
Key players are focused on extensive R&D activities for product development and gaining approval as novel therapies. Launch of such novel therapies in the near future is expected to significantly fuel the Hunter syndrome treatment market growth. For instance, in May 2018, REGENXBIO Inc. received the U.S. FDA’s Fast Track designation for its novel drug candidate RGX-121, indicated for the disease treatment.
