Cytomegalovirus Treatment Market

Cytomegalovirus Treatment Market: Improvement in Efficacy of Combinational Antiviral Therapy and Growing Awareness Regarding Cytomegalovirus Infections Expected to Enhance Revenue Growth: Global Industry Analysis 2013 - 2017 and Opportunity Assessment 2018 - 2028

Combinational Antiviral Therapy Will Create More Opportunities for Cytomegalovirus Treatment

The most important and effective strategy in the prevention of cytomegalovirus infection is to avoid immunodeficiency as it increases the risk of infection and cytomegalovirus reactivation. The wide use of combinational antiviral therapy is decreasing the rate of HIV infection in people. Direct acting antiviral medicines coupled with the use of cART affects immune restoration and will give a push to the cytomegalovirus treatment market worldwide.

Growing Prevalence of Congenital CMV Infection

Congenital Cytomegalovirus disease transpires in approximately 1% of all live births. The bulk of the cases are asymptomatic, but almost 5–10% of infants with congenital CMV will have significant chances of disease. CMV infection in the neonate generates attenuated interferon response associated to a similar infection in the adult.

Cytomegalovirus infection and risk of reactivation of cytomegalovirus infection have been reported during pregnancy. These can also lead to congenital CMV infection. Prediction for neonates with infection is poor, with a high possibility of mental deficits, hearing loss, prematurity, hepatosplenomegaly, jaundice. Morbidity & mortality are connected with congenital CMV infection, emphasizing the requirement for cytomegalovirus treatment and vaccine to inhibit CMV infection.

Antiviral agents such as ganciclovir, valganciclovir reduce the risk hearing disorders. Ganciclovir and valganciclovir provide advances in cytomegalovirus treatment because of oral bioavailability, efficacy, and limitation of toxicity. There is a need for new drugs, as comparatively few research programs are currently focusing on anti-cytomegalovirus treatment.

CMV Retinitis among AIDS Patients to Drive Cytomegalovirus Treatment Market Growth

The cytomegalovirus treatment market is expected to witness lucrative growth due to increasing cases of CMV retinitis. Cytomegalovirus retinitis is a moderately rare exhibition of cytomegalovirus disease in other immunocompromised populations. It is the initial indication of cytomegalovirus infection in patients with AIDS. Up to 25% of patients with AIDS developed cytomegalovirus retinitis.

Cytomegalovirus retinitis is a disease identified by necrotizing retinitis that can begin to cause retinal organization and blindness. Cytomegalovirus retinitis and other exhibitions of cytomegalovirus disease in individuals with HIV-1 infection are opportunistic infections, transpiring when CD4+ cell counts are extremely suppressed. High value-added active antiretroviral therapy will drive the growth of the cytomegalovirus treatment market.

The growing demand for cytomegalovirus treatment, due to the increasing prevalence of cytomegalovirus retinitis in AIDS patients is the major factor fueling the cytomegalovirus treatment market across the globe.

Growing Awareness of Cytomegalovirus Treatment in Stem Cell Transplant

The rising prevalence and incidences of cytomegalovirus infections is a prime driver of the cytomegalovirus treatment market. The cytomegalovirus treatment market is mainly growing because of the rising prevalence rate of cytomegalovirus infection in different indications such as congenital CMV, cytomegalovirus retinitis, stem cell therapy.

The growing awareness of herpes is also driving the cytomegalovirus treatment market. Increased educational programs about cytomegalovirus infection and cytomegalovirus treatment, by public health interventions and pediatric counseling, are needed for all pregnant women to prevent cytomegalovirus infections.
