Atopic dermatitis usually begins during childhood and often involved genetic disorders-environmental-exposure-and immune system malfunctioning. The prevalence of atopic dermatitis in the majority of the regions is significantly high. For example, an association led by National Eczema Association found that 7.3% of the adults in the US were afflicted by atopic dermatitis, and about 40% had severe or moderate symptoms. Moreover, as per independent researchers, atopic dermatitis was highly prevalent in pediatrics. In 45% of the surveyed children, symptoms appear before 6 months, while 60% of the population develop symptoms before 1 year. Only a small proportion of atopic dermatitis is found in children aged between 6-20 years. The said trends continue to be followed around the globe. For example, in India, around 20% of the children have chance to develop AD within a year of birth. The high prevalence of the said condition has been a key driver for the market.
The upliftment of biologics has been a key driver for the treatment market.
Atopic dermatitis has been a prolonged condition, for which the field of biologics has continued to find solutions with minimal side effects. Owing to such needs, dupilumab was discovered and has proved effective results in those afflicted. A recently published article from Spain with data on 70 patients treated with dupilumab showed good efficacy regarding both skin condition and pruritus. In the said study, the condition improved by 60-70% after six months of treatment. Further, the studies which took place in Berlin showed, that after three months of the said treatment-32% of patients achieved a SCORAD of 75, and 67% achieved SCORAD50. Furthermore, the affected body surface area reduced from 42.17% to 9.9%. The said reduction further allows people to start the said treatment. Lastly, dupilumab has shown now cases of skin reactions or anaphylaxis.
Product recalls the exponential increase of hypersensitive reaction, and a close knitted competition has impeded the market growth
Eczema treatments have often been recalled in the past, especially the topic mode. For example, a nationwide Class- III recall had been issued for 6763 1 Gram Novacort Gel Sample Packets. The said product contains 2% hydrocortisone acetate (a steroid), along with 1% pramoxine HCI. The reason given for the same is that the drug is sub potent, and out of specifications results for pramoxine hydrochloride were provided. Furthermore, Incyte reported cases where API issues were felt in small batches. Users lodged complaints about the texture of the cream. Moreover, Incyte says it will suspend its Opzelura sample program, but there is no product recall. Lastly, there has been increasing in cases where a topical medication led to serious ramifications, such as cases of anaphylaxis and others which has resulted in low confidence in the products.
