Global Genetic Disorders Drugs Market to 2023 – A Rapidly Growing Treatment Landscape Driven by Targeted Complement System Inhibitors and Enzyme Replacement Therapies to Treat PNH and Lysosomal Storage Disease

  • Published: Dec-2017
  • Report Code: GBIHC464MR
  • Report Format: pdf


The genetic disorders therapy area consists of indications that arise because of an abnormality in a person’s DNA. This report focuses on the key therapy area indications of cystic fibrosis (CF), Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), lysosomal storage disease (LSD) and paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH). Genetic disorders are frequently inherited from an individual’s parents but can also arise because of a new (de novo) mutation. The treatment landscape for genetic disorders is dominated commercially by orphan drugs for the treatment of rare genetic disorders. Overall, 1,390 products are being actively developed in the genetic disorders pipeline. The pipelines of CF, DMD, LSD and PNH contain 163, 109, 174 and 24 products, respectively. The pipeline is dominated by targeted therapies that aim to treat the underlying cause, which is often specific to the particular indication.
