Dallas, TX -- (SBWIRE) -- 08/25/2014 -- The report Global Multiple Sclerosis Drugs Market 2014-2018 says one of the emerging trends in the market is the introduction of disease-modifying drugs as a treatment option. Drugs such as Copaxone (Glatiramer Acetate) by Teva Pharmaceuticals and Tysabri (Natalizumab) by Biogen Idec are increasingly used in the treatment of multiple sclerosis.

According to the report, the launch of products for treating multiple sclerosis is expected to drive the market during the forecast period of 2013-2018. There is a lucrative space for companies that can address the issue of unmet medical needs in the market.

Multiple sclerosis is a chronic, inflammatory medical condition that results in demyelination, axonal transection, and neurodegeneration. The myelin sheath is damaged because of an abnormal response by the immune system, which targets neurons within the central nervous system (CNS). It is a potentially debilitating disease in which the damage of the myelin sheath causes disruption in the communication and coordination functions of the body. The symptoms of multiple sclerosis differ widely, subject to the extent of damage and the number of neurons affected. Some of the symptoms observed in a patient with multiple sclerosis are fatigue, numbness, spasticity, bladder dysfunction, cognitive changes, emotional changes, and depression. An individual with the severe course of the disease can experience speech problems and movement problems. Multiple sclerosis can be broadly classified into four types: relapsing-remitting multiple sclerosis, secondary-progressive multiple sclerosis, primary-progressive multiple sclerosis, and progressive-relapsing multiple sclerosis. On the basis of the route of drug administration, the Global Multiple Sclerosis Drugs market can be segmented into two: Oral Drugs, and Parenteral Drugs.
