Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/02/2018 -- Global Krabbe Disease Treatment Market: Overview
Krabbe disease treatment is a rare autosomal recessive lysosomal related disorder affecting the white matter of the peripheral and central nervous system. It is a genetic disorder, which is passed down one generation to another in families. It is also called globoid cell leukodystrophy disease. Persons suffering from Krabbe disease treatment are unable to produce sufficient amount of galactosylceramidase, which is essential for myelin production and breaks down several important compounds in a human body. Without sufficient amount of this enzyme many substances accumulate into the body which damages nerve cells in the central nervous system. This can result in neurological problems such as abnormal muscle tone, blindness, and seizures. Krabbe disease treatment is rare and occurs in approximately 1 in every 100,000 people in the general population.
