Uvea is found in the back of the sclera and the cornea and has three parts: the iris, the ciliary body and the choroid. Uveal melanoma, including the iris choroid and cilira body, is referred to as cancer of the areas of the skin. This is the state in which the tumors emerge from the melanocytes that are responsible for the color of the eye inside the uva.

It is the most common form of intraocular malignancy in adults, although it is an uncommon disorder. The treatment of uveal melanoma depends on the size of the tumor, which is the most significant factor. In the early stages, this kind of melanoma is completely asymptomatic.

Some modifications can be observed in tumor enlargement over time, such as pupil distortion, reduced visibility due to blurred vision, and secondary retinal detachment.

Fair hair, green or light, and blue colored eyes, and older age are risk variables for this form of cancer. The role of genetic mutations inherited in uveal melanoma is not yet understood. According to the American Cancer Society, the choroid produces about nine out of 10 eye melanomas.

According to American Cancer Society, by the end of 2021 the eye cancer cases including new eye and orbit cancers (primarily melanomas) in the USA will reach to 3,320, out of which 1,750 in men and 1,570 in women.

What Are the Key Opportunities for Uveal melanoma Treatment Manufacturers?

The development of an efficient screening tool for uveal melanoma will play a significant role in early detection and subsequent mortality reduction. Over the past few decades, recognition and screening for uveal melanoma has improved, leading to the early detection of uveal melanoma. The ultimate aim of reducing the rate of late-stage illness and mortality has not been achieved, however.

This is primarily due to inadequate screening techniques, which also yield false-positive and false-negative findings. To meet these criteria, groundbreaking companion diagnostic tests will lead to rapid acceptance among doctors and patient populations. Growing demand for safe non-invasive screening methods is therefore expected to fuel the growth of uveal melanoma treatment market in near future.
