Radiation nephropathy is renal injury and loss of function affected by ionizing radiation. The major risk with radiation nephropathy and bone marrow transplant (BMT) nephropathy is progressive loss of renal function with evolution to end-stage renal failure. The radiation nephropathy usually occurs after sufficient irradiation of both kidneys. The renal failure may be accelerated due to uncontrolled hypertension, hence to control the loss of renal function, blood pressure must be maintained. Thus, antihypertensive agents are an important part of clinical management of radiation nephropathy or BMT nephropathy. The goal of therapy is to keep blood pressure at less than 130/85 mm Hg or 125/75 mm Hg if the patient has proteinuria of greater than 1000 mg/d. Moreover, due to its uncommon characteristics, there are no controlled trials to guide the management of radiation nephropathy. Hence, radiation nephropathy treatment and management is guided by the same principles of treatment of any hypertensive kidney disease, including renovascular hypertension, blood pressure control and correction of metabolic acidosis. The most important blood pressure medications to treat renal hypertension include: ACE inhibitors (angiotensin converting enzyme inhibitors). These include ramipril, benazepril, captopril, lisinopril, and others; and ARBs (angiotensin II receptor blockers). Examples include candesartan, losartan, olmesartan and valsartan. However, some people with renal hypertension can be helped by angioplasty, stenting, or surgery on the blood vessels of the kidney.
Radiation Nephropathy Treatment and Management Market: Drivers and Restraints
Radiation nephropathy treatment and management market is majorly driven by increasing prevalence of kidney disorders and rising patient population suffering from hypertension. Renovascular hypertension is said to be the main cause of chronic kidney disorder. In 2013, in U.S. approximately, 661,000 American have kidney failure and in 2013 more than 47,000 Americans died from kidney disease. Moreover, government initiatives to increase early awareness about radiation nephropathy treatment and management, are also driving the radiation nephropathy treatment and management market. For instance, private and public healthcare organization is increasingly taking initiatives for management of kidney diseases which is expected to spur the growth of radiation nephropathy treatment and management market. In addition to this, National Institute of Diabetes and Kidney Diseases (NIDDK), National Institutes of Health (NIH) and CDC conduct screening programs and support research into many diseases and conditions. Also, increasing number of patients suffering from cholesterol and diabetes are also likely to create high demand of radiation nephropathy treatment and management. Moreover, aggregate prevalence of primary renal diseases such as renal artery stenosis, atherosclerosis, and focal segmental glomerulosclerosis is also one of the key factors driving the radiation nephropathy treatment and management market.
Besides this, upsurge in clinical trial for drug development with the support of government organization is also likely to spur the growth of radiation nephropathy treatment and management market. However, less awareness regarding renovascular hypertension due to no symptoms is the major factor expected to restrain radiation nephropathy treatment and management market.
