Double vision, facial paralysis, difficulty in walking, dropping of eyelids, are symptoms of myasthenia gravis. This disease is diagnosed by tests such as repetitive nerve stimulation test, blood test for antibodies, edrophonium test, Computed Tomography (CT), and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI).

Myasthenia Gravis Treatment Market Drivers

Consistent research and development activities are expected to propel growth of the myasthenia gravis treatment market. For instance, in October 2017, Alexion Pharmaceuticals, Inc. received approval from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for Soliris which contains eculizumab as an active component. This drug is used for treatment of antibody positive generalized myasthenia gravis, and it is also used in treatment of paroxysmal nocturnal hemoglobinuria (PNH), atypical hemolytic uremic syndrome (aHUS).

Furthermore, increasing number of clinical trials for treatment of myasthenia gravis are expected to drive the myasthenia gravis treatment market growth. For instance, in December 2017, Novartis AG initiated phase II clinical trial of CFZ533 for treatment of severe myasthenia gravis. The main function of CFZ533 is the modification of immune response by deactivation of white blood cells. Hence, it is expected to help with improvement and management of severe myasthenia gravis.

Moreover, Argenx BVBA is conducting a clinical phase III study of ARGX-113 for treatment of generalized myasthenia gravis. ARGX-113, also named Efgartigimod, is administered intravenously. The study started in March 2019 and is expected to complete in June 2021.

Side effects of the drugs used for treating myasthenia gravis are expected to hamper growth of the myasthenia gravis treatment market.

Hence, this factor is expected to hinder growth of the myasthenia gravis treatment market.
