Polycystic kidney disease (PKD) is an inherited kidney disorder in which fluid-filled cysts (noncancerous round sacs containing fluid) are developed within the kidneys. PKD may impair kidney function and eventually cause kidney failure. This disease can cause serious complications, including high blood pressure and kidney failure, and sometimes may lead to liver and other complications. PKD is said to be the fourth leading cause of kidney failure.
There are three types of PKD, namely autosomal dominant (ADPKD) (also known as adult PKD), autosomal recessive PKD (ARPKD), and acquired cystic kidney disease (ACKD). The treatment of polycystic kidney disease includes medication to control the blood pressure, pain relievers and cyst removal.
Polycystic Kidney Disease Treatment Market: Drivers and Restraints
Increasing incidence of ADPKD worldwide, rising prevalence of kidney failure, and favorable reimbursements in developed countries are the major factors expected to drive the growth of the polycystic kidney disease treatment market over the forecast period. Moreover, increasing awareness in developing countries, and rising healthcare expenditure are also expected to boost the growth of the polycystic kidney disease treatment market. The polycystic kidney disease treatment market is also driven by governmental support in developing countries and rise in research and development activities for polycystic kidney disease treatment. For initial funding from the PKD Foundation and National Institutes of Health most of the research has led to a collaboration with a biotech company to investigate a promising treatment for slowing cyst growth in ADPKD patients.
However, stringent drug approval process and unfavorable reimbursement policies in under developed countries are factors expected to restrict the growth of the polycystic kidney disease treatment market over the forecast period.
