LSD refers to inherited metabolic disorders, which are characterized by enzyme deficiencies. Metachromatic leukodystrophy; Mucolipidosis types I, II/III, and IV; Mucopolysaccharide storage disease; Gaucher disease; Fabry disease; Niemann-Pick disease; Schindler disease types I and II; Tay Sachs disease; Pompe disease; and Sandhoff disease are some of the most common types of LSD. These diseases tend to affect various parts of the body such as central nervous system (CNS), skin, heart, and skeleton. Signs and symptoms vary from disease to disease in this group. Hepatomegaly, optic atrophy, and prenatal diagnosis are some of the common symptoms of this disorder.
Early detection of LSD, before birth or just after the birth is possible by genetic screening of the individual and the family. LSD can be treated by bone marrow transplantation and enzyme replacement therapy (ERT). In addition, some of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (USFDA) approved medications such as Ceredase (Sanofi-aventis Groupe) and Zavesca (Actelion Pharmaceuticals Ltd.) are used for the treatment of Gaucher disease type I; Aldurazyme (Sanofi-aventis Groupe) for the treatment of Mucopolysaccharide type I; and Fabrazyme (Sanofi-aventis Groupe) for Fabry disease.
Positive clinical trial results and strategic development activities of companies are also facilitating drug development in LSD therapeutics pipeline. Additionally, the issuance of patents helps in achieving different milestones in the form of grants and designations from regulatory bodies and institutes, including the USFDA, the European Medicines Agency (EMA), and the National Institutes of Health (NIH), among others.
As of March 2019, the LSD therapeutics pipeline comprised 75+ therapeutic candidates in different stages of development.
The report provides epidemiology forecast of LSD for seven major markets, such as the U.S., Japan, and EU5 countries (the U.K., Germany, France, Italy, and Spain). It covers prevalent and treated patient population for the period 2016–2028. According to an article published in the Indian Pediatrics in 2015, the global prevalence rate of LSD is 1 per 8000 people.
Some of the key players involved in the development of LSD therapeutics are Orchard Therapeutics Limited, Sanofi-aventis Groupe, Actelion Pharmaceuticals Ltd., Amicus Therapeutics Inc., Takeda Pharmaceutical Company Limited, Ultragenyx Pharmaceutical Inc., Valerion Therapeutics LLC, Actus Therapeutics Inc., Chiesi Farmaceutici S.p.A., Resverlogix Corp., Orphazyme A/S, Idorsia Pharmaceuticals Ltd., AVROBIO Inc., Mallinckrodt LLC, CTD Holdings Inc., and Protalix BioTherapeutics Inc.
