Nephrogenic systemic fibrosis is a medical disorder which is extremely rare and which occurs among individuals who undergo exposure to an intravenous contrast material that contains gadolinium or in individuals that have reduced kidney function. This contrast material is basically a dye that is, at times, used while MRI procedures. Fibrosis is generally referred to as the scarring and thickening of connective tissue, majorly as a consequence of any kind of injury or inflammation. Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) Treatment involves treating the hardened or thickened fibrosis of the subcutaneous tissues, skin, or, at times, underlying skeletal muscles. Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) Treatment is usually performed for legs and arms. In other cases, the trunk skin could also be involved. The proliferating fibrotic tissue becomes systemic and further extends to other parts including pleura (delicate and smooth membranes around the lungs), diaphragm (thin sheet of muscle that helps in respiration by moving up and down while breathing), pericardium (sac that surrounds the heart), and also the dura mater (outermost layer of the 3 membranes that surrounds the spinal cord and brain).
Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) Treatment Market: Drivers and Restraints-
According to the National Organization for Rare Disorders, Inc, the prevalence or incidence of NSF is not known, but the NSF cases have been identified globally and majorly in developed countries. Growing incidence of chronic kidney disorders and acute kidney injuries is expected to propel market growth for Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) Treatment, as the NSF is only been observed in individuals with kidney disorders. Lack of awareness on the harmful effects associated with these contrast dyes is also expected to fuel market demand for Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) Treatment. However, severe complications and risks associated with the Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) Treatment available in the market and stringent regulatory issues regarding the Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) Treatment is expected to obstruct market growth for Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) Treatment. As per the U.S. FDA (Food and Drug Administration) 3 specific contrast agents that are gadolinium-based (Omniscan, Magnevist, and Optimark) were contraindicated in patients suffering with acute kidney injury or chronic kidney disorders. These contradictions regarding Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) Treatment available and used, is expected to hinder market growth for Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) Treatment.

Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) Treatment Market: Overview
In 2000, NSF was 1st reported in the medical literature. According to various researchers increased availability of contrast dyes that are gadolinium-based and perceived safety contributed to the rise of nephrogenic systemic fibrosis since 1997. Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) Treatment initially involved the treatment of just the skin and was then referred to as the nephrogenic fibrosing dermopathy. Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) Treatment is now involved in treating various systemic disorders (internal organs). Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) Treatment is highly in use as the disease is potentially leading to a severe and progressive disease course. As per the U.S. FDA (Food and Drug Administration), since 2010, the contrast agents that are gadolinium-based are required to carry a disclaimer on their labels about the associated risks of NSF.
Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) Treatment Market: Region-wise Outlook
North America’s Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) Treatment market is expanding because of high Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) Treatment adoption and FDA approval of drugs for Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) Treatment. The North America market for Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) Treatment is expected to remain dominant over the period of forecast due to increase in researches and government funding. Europe’s and Asia-Pacific’s Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) Treatment market is expected to grow significantly owing it to the increase in healthcare expenditure and high number of chronic kidney disorder cases in the region. Middle-East and Africa’s Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) Treatment market is anticipated to grow at a decent rate due to the lack of awareness on Nephrogenic Systemic Fibrosis (NSF) Treatment available and less availability of the treatment.
