Epilepsy is a group of neurological diseases characterized by epileptic seizures. Epileptic seizures are episodes that can vary from brief and nearly undetectable to long periods of vigorous shaking. These episodes can result in physical injuries including occasionally broken bones. The medical definition of this disease is as a “condition characterized by recurrent (two or more) epileptic seizures, unprovoked by any immediate identified cause”. Epilepsy is divided into four main types; idiopathic generalized epilepsy, idiopathic partial epilepsy, symptomatic generalized epilepsy and symptomatic partial epilepsy. The cause of epilepsy can be genetic, a result of other disorders such as tumor or brain injury and due to certain seizure triggers.
Epilepsy is treated via antiepileptic drugs, surgery in certain cases and several complementary therapies such as ketogenic diets or neural stimulation. Based upon the drug type, epilepsy market can be divided into three main categories; first generation drugs, second generation drugs and third generation drugs.
The global epilepsy market is driven by factors such as development of novel drugs, launch of new drugs in developing regions and prevalence of neural disorders such as meningitis and tumors. This growth is then further spearheaded by increasing healthcare expenses and rising disposable incomes. However, the market growth is hindered by tedious drug approval process, generic erosion and high cost of treatment. Trends such as companies focusing on developing effective therapies for refractory epilepsy and physicians demanding higher efficacy drugs are listed in this report.
