Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/30/2018 -- Acromegaly is a rare but serious hormonal disorder caused by the excessive growth hormone (GH) in the body. The excessive GH usually comes from benign, or noncancerous, tumours in the pituitary, known as pituitary adenoma. This condition is the most often diagnosed in middle-aged adults, though the symptoms can appear at any age. In most of the cases, it is treatable, but because of its slow and sneaky onset, the disease remains undiagnosed. If left untreated, the disease can result in serious illness and premature death. The serious health complications are Type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, increased risk of cardiovascular disease, and arthritis. The condition affects males and females in equal numbers.
Gigantism is excessive production of GH in children that is extremely rare and leads to exaggerated bone growth and an abnormal increase in height. It results due to excessive action of insulin like growth factor I (IGF-I) while the epiphyseal growth plates are open during childhood. This disease refers to excess GH secretion that occurs during childhood when growth plates are open, leading to accelerated vertical growth. This is in contrast to acromegaly, in which GH hyper secretion occurs after epiphyseal plate closure and stature is not affected. During adolescence, vertical growth is aggravated by hypogonadotropic hypogonadism and the resulting lack of gonadal steroids, which delays epiphyseal closure. True gigantism is rare and usually caused by a pituitary mammosomatotroph adenoma.
According to the report of DelveInsight "Acromegaly and Gigantism Therapeutics Market Insights, Epidemiology and Market Forecast- 2027" Acromegaly occurs in approximately 50 to 70 people per million and 3 out of every 1 million develop the disorder each year. The disease mostly occurs during the fourth and fifth decades. The mean age of diagnosis in male and female is 40 and 45 years respectively. A literature review of population studies from various geographical areas suggested the total prevalence ranging between 2.8 and 13.7 cases per 100,000 people, while annual incidence was reported to be in between 0.2 and 1.1 cases/100,000 people. The disease can occur at any stage after puberty, in case when excessive secretion of growth hormone occurs before puberty then this condition is known as gigantism, which is extremely rare. In one series of 2,367 children and adolescents with a pituitary adenoma, pituitary gigantism was found in only 0.6%. Boys and girls are equally affected.
Market Outlook of Acromegaly and Gigantism Market
Management of Acromegaly and Gigantism includes surgical removal of the tumor, medical therapy, and radiation therapy of the pituitary. Medical therapies such as Somatostatin analogs (SSAs), dopamine analogues and GH receptor antagonists are used to when primary surgery fails to induce complete remission. The market size of Acromegaly and Gigantism is expected to grow due to increasing prevalence of disease owing to increase in the tumor cases as well as awareness among people. Other market drivers will be the increased use of somatostatin analogs with better administration or dosing regimens and the treatment of refractory patient segments. Additionally, launches of upcoming therapies will also contribute to the overall growth of the market during the forecast period of 2018-2027. The emerging companies in this space are majorly focusing on developing novel drug delivery methods, rather than the exploration of new mechanisms of action.
