Myasthenia gravis is a chronic neuromuscular disease that leads to weakness in the skeletal muscles, which help in the breathing and movement of the body parts including the arms and legs. The word ‘myasthenia gravis’ has Latin and Greek origin and means serious muscle weakness. Myasthenia Gravis is rare and only affects 14 to 20 people out of every 100,000. The main symptom of myasthenia gravis is weakness in the voluntary skeletal muscles, which are muscles under one’s control. Weakness associated with MG typically gets worse with more activity and improves with rest.
The disease is categorized into six types namely: Early-Onset MG, Late-Onset MG, Thymoma-Associated MG, MG with Anti-Musk Antibodies, Ocular MG, and MG with no detectable AChR and MuSK Antibodies. Myasthenia gravis is caused by an error in the transmission of nerve impulses to muscles. Major treatments available for MG are Symptomatic Treatment, Rapid Short-Term Immune-Modulating Treatment, Chronic Long-Term Immune-Modulating Treatment and Surgery.
The global myasthenia gravis market has increased over the past few years and projections are made that the market would rise in the forecasted period i.e. 2017 to 2021 at a significant growth rate. The global myasthenia gravis market is expected to boost by the major factors such as rising geriatric population, technological advancements, approval of monoclonal antibodies, strategies such as mergers and acquisitions etc. Yet the market growth is restrain by some challenges such as competition from off-label drugs, limited availability of FDA approved drugs, high cost of the treatment etc.
