Global Lyme Disease Treatment Market – Insights

Transmission of the bacterium – Borrelia burgdorferi through bites of infected adult black-legged ticks can cause Lyme disease. The transmission can take place if the tick is attached to the host body for 36 to 48 hours. The northeastern, mid-Atlantic, and north-central areas of the U.S. witness Lyme disease due to blacklegged ticks, whereas western black-legged ticks spread the disease in the regions along the Pacific Coast. Fever, headaches, swollen lymph nodes, chills, fatigue, muscle and joint aches, and characteristic skin rash (erythema migrans) are some of the early symptoms of Lyme disease. Avoiding treatment can lead to further discomfort such as intermittent pain in muscles, tendons, joints, and bones, coupled with severe headaches, neck stiffness, arthritis with severe joint pain, increased heart palpitations or an irregular heartbeat, nerve swelling in knees, facial palsy, pain, and inflammation of the brain and spinal cord. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), erythema migrans affects around 70% to 80% of infected people, worldwide.

Lyme carditis is a rare complication in Lyme disease and is a result of the infection invading the heart tissue. The condition can lead to mild, moderate, or severe heart blockage and palpitations, lightheadedness, blackouts, chest pain, and dyspnea. According to the National Surveillance Data, by National Notifiable Disease Surveillance System (NNDSS), between 2001 and 2010, Lyme carditis affected around 1% of patients suffering from Lyme disease, in the U.S. Intravenous or oral antibiotics, preferably ceftriaxone are used for the treatment of Lyme carditis. However, depending upon the severity of infection, some patients might require implantation of a temporary or permanent pacemaker.

Antibiotics such as doxycycline, amoxicillin, and cefuroxime axetil are a potential therapy in the treatment of Lyme disease and are effective in early stages of the disease. Moreover, intravenous ceftriaxone can also be used in the treatment of patients with certain neurological or cardiac disorder. Oral antibiotic treatment proves effective in the treatment of patients with chronic symptoms of Lyme disease and the recovery period is a few weeks or over 6 months. According to International Lyme and Associated Disease Society (ILADS), it is challenging to diagnose and treat Lyme disease and it may result in persistent infection. Although no single antibiotic or combination of antibiotics has demonstrated the ability to eliminate Lyme disease infection, ILADS recommends individualized treatment based on the severity of symptoms, tick-borne coinfections, and patient’s response to treatment. Therefore, increasing demand for potent antibiotic for the treatment of Lyme disease and the prevailing cases of the disease is expected to propel growth of the global Lyme disease treatment market over the forecast period.

R&D of new vaccines is expected to boost growth of the global Lyme disease treatment market. For instance, in July 2017, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted fast track designation to the first vaccine for Lyme disease – VLA15, created by Valneva SE – a Europe-based biotech firm. The company plans to initiate the phase 2 studies in early 2018.

However, increasing consumption of antibiotics can eliminate beneficial intestinal flora, which may have adverse health effects, which is expected to hinder growth of the global Lyme disease treatment market.
