Orphan drug designations for sickle-cell anemias are one of the major trends being witnessed in the sickle-cell anemia therapeutics market in the US 2018-2022. The prevalence rate of sickle-cell anemia is usually lower than the other mainstream indications such as diabetes and hypertension, as it is a rare disorder. Hence, drug companies refrain from investing large amounts in R&D of drug discovery. To overcome such hurdles, regulatory bodies have granted orphan drug designation which will support the pipeline of therapeutics for the treatment of sickle-cell anemia.

Sickle-cell anemia therapeutics market in the US: Initiatives to increase awareness about sickle-cell anemia

Sickle-cell anemia is the specific type of rare genetic sickle-cell disease; therefore, patients are unable to observe the symptoms very early. Early screening, diagnosis, and treatment will allow people with sickle-cell anemia to live much longer. Therefore, it is crucial to provide awareness about early screening, diagnosis, and treatment of sickle-cell diseases. Many organizations are conducting awareness programs to increase the awareness of sickle-cell anemia.

According to a senior analyst at Technavio for research on pharmaceuticals, “Millions of people do not know they have sickle-cell trait, as the trait usually does not cause illness. In countries such as the US, most of the patients diagnosed with sickle-cell anemia experience acute pain, infections, and costly hospitalization. Thus, numerous initiatives are being undertaken by different organizations to improve patient access to therapies and care.”
