Based on the recent reports, North America and Asia are the two regions of the world which dominate the Alzheimer’s disease global market for therapeutics.
In addition to this, the therapeutics market is expected to increase in Europe too because the number of Alzheimer’s disease patient has increased as well. However, the specialists underline that Indian and China will have two of the fastest growing therapeutics market in Asia.
Recent research suggests that the major factors influencing the development of the Alzheimer’s therapeutic markets are the high number of patients, the rising R&D investment, and the fact that governments invested in healthcare infrastructure.
Also, due to the increased geriatric population, there is a higher risk that more seniors will develop Alzheimer’s. However, although the global therapeutics market is larger, people are spending a lot of money every year on various types of treatments.
The development of this market was also facilitated by the technological advances in the medical field. More precisely, patients detect Alzheimer’s in its early stages, so they immediately go for the required medications which are quite expensive, considering the fact that this disease destroys the brain.
Public health specialists explain that the growing number of patients will fuel the growth of this market. As such, they stress on the fact that people should focus on improving their lifestyle instead of waiting until it’s too late.
There are around five million people living with Alzheimer’s disease in the United States, and the experts predict that this number will triple by 2050. Alzheimer’s is degenerative brain disorder that cannot be treated or cured.
Only recently have scientists discovered a few types of medications that seem to slow the progression of this brain disorder. Common symptoms include memory loss, repetitive movements, insomnia, anxiety, and sometimes depression.
Based on the reports from the National Institute on Aging, this disease is the most prevalent form of dementia. People can prevent it by adopting healthier dietary habits. Researchers discovered that the Mediterranean diet has great beneficial effects on the consumer’s metabolism because it is rich in protein, fiber, healthy fats, and antioxidants.
This diet consists of nuts, fish, olive oil, fruits, vegetables, and whole grains. Alzheimer’s is known as type 3 diabetes, so by preventing obesity, we can prevent the onset of diabetes too.
