Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/16/2018 -- Tourette syndrome is a neuropsychiatric disorder, characterized by physical and vocal tics. Tics are repetitive and non-rhythmic movements of discrete muscle group and are formed due to genetic mutation that disrupt the production of histamine in the brain. Tourette syndrome is primarily caused due to the disturbance in the balance of neurotransmitter in the brain, which carries nerve signals from cell to cell. This syndrome is associated with the exclamation of obscene words or socially inappropriate remarks. Tourette syndrome is a genetic disorder that affects children and teenagers. Tourette syndrome also increases the risk of hyperactivity disorder or obsessive-compulsive disorder in children.
Blinking, frowning, jerking, and foot stamping are some of the symptoms of Tourette syndrome. Drugs that target histamine receptors are helpful in treating this disorder. Currently, no single drug has been approved for the treatment of tourette syndrome; however, the current treatments help manage tics or other related symptoms caused by the syndrome. Based on treatment, the Tourette Syndrome Market is segmented into medication and therapy. Medication includes dopamine antagonists, botulinum injections, central adrenergic inhibitors, antidepressants, and anticonvulsant agents.
