The global NASH drugs market or non-alcoholic steatohepatitis treatment market is likely to be worth $20 - $30 billion by 2025. NASH or non alcoholic steatohepatitis treatment refers to a chronic liver disorder characterized by accretion of fat (lipid droplets), along with inflammation and degeneration of hepatocytes. In other words, it can be defined as significant steatohepatitis not caused due to alcohol, drugs, toxins, infectious agents or other identifiable exogenous causes. NASH is often accompanied with a high possibility of cirrhosis, a condition in which the liver functions are changed, leading to liver insufficiency. Although NASH has become quite common, there is still no clarity about the underlying cause of the disease. It is currently the third most common factor leading to liver transplants in the US. Estimated to affect around 2-5% of Americans, NASH has been cited as the next hepatitis C.
Given the rising prevalence of NASH, it has become all the more crucial to understand the pathophysiology of NASH in order to develop therapeutic interventions. Several options are being investigated to identify an efficient treatment regimen for NASH; these include lifestyle modifications, off-label therapies, natural products and combinations of these approaches. However, the diagnostic landscape for NASH is quite challenging; majority of the patients are asymptomatic and can only be detected by routine blood tests showing elevations in liver enzymes. At present, liver biopsy is being used as the only reliable way to diagnose NASH and detect the presence of fibrosis; however, very few patients choose to undergo liver biopsy because of its invasive nature.
Recognizing the huge unmet medical need, several companies are striving to establish an early foothold in the area. Investigators are also looking forward to exploiting the approach of personalized medicine in order to identify diagnostic biomarkers, prognostic biomarkers and therapeutic targets for the treatment of NASH on the basis of their pathogenic and clinical traits. Owing to the above-mentioned reasons, NASH drugs market / non-alcoholic steatohepatitis treatment market likely to witness substantial market growth during the forecast period.
