SEATTLE, March 25, 2021, (PHARMIWEB) — Global Burkitt Lymphoma Treatment Market

Burkitt lymphoma is a cancer of the lymphatic system, which develops from B lymphocytes and is characterized by rapid, abnormal growth of these lymphocytes. The condition usually leads to lymph node enlargement in various parts of the body, including spleen, liver, bone marrow, and the central nervous system. Burkitt lymphoma is a type of high-grade non-Hodgkin lymphoma (NHL). The World Health Organization has classified Burkitt lymphoma as an endemic that affects children in Africa aged 4-7 years, sporadic that occurs globally, and immunodeficiency-associated type that affects people suffering from HIV/AIDS. According to a survey carried out by the Cancer Therapy Advisor, Burkitt lymphoma accounts for up to 30% of the global pediatric lymphomas and less than 1% of lymphoma cases in adults, especially with a weakened immune system. Several cellular therapies, such as T-cell therapy and CAR T-cell therapy, are currently being developed, which can use the patient’s own T-cells to attack the non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma cells.

Global Burkitt Lymphoma Treatment Market Dynamics

Rising incidence of HIV is expected to augment the growth of the global Burkitt lymphoma treatment market, as Burkitt lymphoma is an AIDS-defining cancer expected to occur more frequently in people suffering from HIV. According to the Burkitt Lymphoma Society, the condition accounts for around 40% of the childhood non-Hodgkin lymphoma cases globally. It also accounts for as many as 40% of all non-Hodgkin lymphomas in HIV/AIDS patients. According to the Cancer Therapy Advisor, Burkitt lymphoma is the most common pediatric cancer with the disease incidence being 2-3 times higher in sub-Saharan Africa, with an estimated incidence of 3–6 cases per 100,000 children per year. The disease is termed as endemic Burkitt lymphoma, where a majority of cases are related to Epstein-Barr virus (EBV).

Moreover, various government and non-government organizations are undertaking research initiatives to launch efficient treatments and create awareness about the rare disease. For instance, the National Cancer Institute initiated the Burkitt Lymphoma Genome Sequencing Project (BLGSP) to explore potential genetic changes in patients suffering from Burkitt lymphoma (BL) that could lead to better prevention, detection, and treatment of this rare and aggressive cancer. Moreover, researchers at Forgarty International Center and National Cancer Institute are working together to address global health needs related to various cancer types, including Burkitt lymphoma. Non-profit organization such as Burkitt Lymphoma Society supports and connects patients and caregivers by connecting the patients who have received efficient care for Burkitt lymphoma, thus providing information and creating awareness about the rare medical condition. Also, in 2017, the Lymphoma Research Foundation granted US$ 700,000 to funding innovative research that serves education programs, outreach initiatives, and patient services, thus accelerating the global Burkitt lymphoma treatment market expansion.
