Report Overview

The UK Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease (CMT) Therapeutics market size stood at around USD xx billion in 2020 and is projected to reach USD xx billion by 2028, exhibiting a CAGR of xx% during the forecast period.

Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease (CMT) is a group of inherited conditions that damage the peripheral nerves. It’s also known as hereditary motor and sensory neuropathy (HMSN) or peroneal muscular atrophy (PMA). The peripheral nerves are found outside the main central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). They control the muscles and relay sensory information, such as the sense of touch, from the limbs to the brain.

People with CMT may have the symptoms like muscle weakness in their feet, ankles, legs, and hands, an awkward way of walking, highly arched or very flat feet, numbness in the feet, arms, and hands. The symptoms of CMT usually start to appear between the ages of 5 and 15, although they sometimes do not develop until well into middle age or later. CMT is a progressive condition. This means the symptoms slowly get worse, making everyday tasks increasingly difficult.

CMT is caused by an inherited fault in one of the many genes responsible for the development of the peripheral nerves. This fault means the nerves become damaged over time. A child with CMT may have inherited the genetic fault responsible for the condition from 1 or both of their parents. In the UK, it is estimated that approximately 25,000 people have CMT, making it the most common inherited neurological condition.

Market Growth Drivers

The increasing prevalence of Charcot Marie Tooth disease and the technological advancement in disease treatment will assist in encouraging the growth of the market. An increase in genetic disorders, due to a large number of genes causing this disease, an increase in innovations in this field, will also lead to a boost in the market growth.

The increased focus towards targeted therapies, along with the favorable government policies will additionally heighten numerous opportunities that will commence to the germination of the Charcot Marie Tooth disease market over the forecast period.

Market Restraints

However, the high cost of treatment and the lack of awareness of Charcot Marie Tooth disease acts as a major restraint and as well as may hamper the market growth over the forecast period.

Market Segmentation

By Diagnosis:

On the basis of diagnosis, the Charcot Marie Tooth disease therapeutics market can be classified into

  • Nerve conduction test
  • Electromyography (EMG)
  • Nerve biopsy
  • Pre-implantation genetic diagnosis (PGD)
  • Chorionic villus sampling (CVS)
  • Amniocentesis
  • Genetic testing
  • Others

A nerve conduction test measures the strength and speed of signals transmitted through your peripheral nerves, the network of nerves that run from the brain and spinal cord to and from the rest of the body, such as the limbs and organs. An unusually slow or weak signal could indicate CMT. Electromyography (EMG) uses a small needle-shaped electrode placed in the skin to measure the electrical activity of your muscles.

Nerve biopsy is a minor surgical procedure where a sample of a peripheral nerve is removed from your leg for testing. PGD involves using in vitro fertilization (IVF), where eggs are removed from a woman’s ovaries before being fertilized with sperm in a laboratory. Chorionic villus sampling (CVS) and Amniocentesis usually carried out during pregnancy to check if a baby will develop CMT. Genetic testing involves taking a blood sample and testing it for defective genes known to cause CMT which can only be confirmed by genetic testing and find out exactly which type of CMT they have.

By Therapy Type:

As per the therapy type, the Charcot Marie Tooth disease therapeutics market can be bifurcated into

  • Physiotherapy
  • Occupational Therapy
  • Orthoses and walking aids
  • Stem cell therapy
  • Hormones and gene therapy
  • Others

Physiotherapy is one of the most important therapies for improving the symptoms of CMT and reducing the risk of muscle contractures, where muscles shorten and lose their normal range of movement. Physiotherapy uses physical methods, such as massage and manipulation, to promote healing and wellbeing. Occupational therapy will be useful if muscle weakness in your arms and hands makes it difficult for you to do day-to-day tasks.

Orthoses are devices worn inside your shoes or on your legs to improve the strength and functionality of your limbs, or to correct your gait (the way you walk). Stem cell therapy, (cells at an early stage of development) are used to repair nerve damage. By using hormones and gene therapy, the progression of the disease can be slowed.

By Medication & Surgery:

Based on the Medication & Surgery, the Charcot Marie Tooth disease therapeutics market can be categorized into

  • Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
  • Tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs)
  • Anticonvulsants
  • Osteotomy
  • Arthrodesis
  • Plantar fascia release
  • Spinal surgery
  • Others

Joint and muscle pain can usually be controlled by taking non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as ibuprofen. While neuropathic pain may be treated with tricyclic antidepressants (TCAs) or anticonvulsant medication. An osteotomy is a surgical procedure used to correct severe flatness of the feet. A cut (incision) is made in the feet to remove or reposition the bones in the feet to correct their shape. After surgery, the feet will need to be kept in plaster for several weeks until the bones have healed.

Arthrodesis involves fusing the 3 main joints in the back of the feet to strengthen the feet, correct their shape and relieve pain. It can be used to correct flat feet and heel deformities, and relieve joint pain. But it may take up to 10 months to fully recover from the operation. Plantar fascia release is a surgical procedure used to relieve persistent heel pain caused by inflamed tendons. During the procedure, part of the tendon is removed and the remaining tendon repositioned and allowed to heal. The abnormal curvature of the spine (scoliosis) can often be treated using a back brace, and by spinal surgery.
