Neuromyelitis optica (Devic’s syndrome): Market overview

Neuromyelitis optica (NMO) – also known as NMO spectrum disorder, Devic’s disease, or Devic’s syndrome – is a rare autoimmune disease that mostly affects the optic nerves (optic neuritis) and the spinal cord (myelitis). It occurs when the body’s immune system attacks its own cells in the central nervous system (CNS). Though the cause of NMO is generally unknown, it can sometimes occur after an infection or can be related to another autoimmune disease. NMO is different from multiple sclerosis (MS). However, it is often misdiagnosed as MS.

According to a senior market research analyst at Technavio, “NMO can lead to blindness in either one or both the eyes, loss of muscle function in parts of the body, and painful spasms. It can also lead to permanent visual loss and paralysis. The risk of NMO is higher in African-Americans compared with Caucasians because of the heterogeneous race. Companies are forming strategic exclusive licensing agreements or acquiring companies to develop robust pipeline.”

Neuromyelitis optica (Devic's syndrome): Segmentation analysis

This drug pipeline analysis report segments the neuromyelitis optica market based on therapies employed (monotherapy), RoA (oral, subcutaneous, and IV), therapeutic modality (monoclonal antibody, small molecule, autologous T-cell therapy, recombinant fusion proteins, and synthetic cyclic peptide), targets for drug development (CD20 antigen, aquaporin-4, AT-2 receptor, B lymphocyte receptor, CD19 antigen, complement component 3, complement receptor, Fc receptor, interleukin-6, monoacylglycerol lipase, nuclear receptor pathways, and serine/threonine kinase-2), MoA (CD20 antigen inhibitor, aquaporin-4 reactive T-cell inhibitor, AT-2 receptor stimulation, B lymphocyte receptor stimulator, CD19 antigen inhibitor, complement component 3 inhibitor, complement receptor inhibitor, Fc receptor inhibitor, immunosuppressants, interleukin-17 stimulator, interleukin-6 inhibitor, monoacylglycerol lipase inhibitor, potassium channel inhibitor, and serine/threonine kinase-2 activator), geographical segmentation (US, UK, Italy, Japan, Taiwan, and others) and recruitment status (active, not recruiting, completed, enrolling by invitation, and recruiting). It provides an in-depth analysis of the prominent factors influencing the market, including drivers, opportunities, trends, and industry-specific challenges.

Based on therapeutic modality, more than 35% of the molecules that are being investigated for the treatment of neuromyelitis optica are monoclonal antibodies.
