Cystic fibrosis (CF), also known as mucoviscidosis, is autosomal recessive disorder that is characterized by abnormal transport of chloride and sodium across an epithelium. The occurrence of disease leads to thick and viscous secretions which causes a life threatening impact on the lungs, the pancreas, liver, and intestine, and also blocks the pancreatic enzymatic actions on the body. Cystic fibrosis is caused by mutation in gene, required for protein cystic fibrosis transmembrane conductance regulator (CFTR), a protein required for regulating sweat, mucus and body secretions.
The market for CF therapeutics is segmented on the basis of therapeutic products such as Pulmozyme, TOBI, Kalydeco, Cayston, Aeroquin, Arikace and others. Further, the market is also segmented on the basis of geography, such as North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World (RoW). The European market is considered as most lucrative market for CF Therapeutics, followed by the North American Market. However, Asia-Pacific is considered as the least important market, owing to least prevalence of the disorder.
