Chronic Immune Thrombocytopenia (ITP) Market – Introduction
Immune thrombocytopenia is an autoimmune-mediated hematological disorder affecting platelets. The immune system of the patient with immune thrombocytopenia produces antibodies directed against platelet antigens, causing platelet destruction and suppression of platelet production in bone marrow cells. This increases the risk of serious bleeding events in the patient with the disease. The disease occurs when the immune system attacks and destroys platelets, and cell fragments helping in blood clotting. The condition can either be acute or chronic. Acute immune thrombocytopenia lasts less than six months while the chronic condition persists for more than six months. Typically, adults have chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) while children suffer from the acute condition. In adults, the condition may be elicited by infection with HIV, hepatitis or H. pylori while in children it is followed by viral illness, such as mumps or flu.

Chronic Immune Thrombocytopenia (ITP) Market – Dynamics
Rise in demand for therapeutics indicated for the treatment of rare blood related disorders, and increase in the number of products approved by the Food and Drug Administration authorities are likely to drive the chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) market during the forecast period. Furthermore, promising drugs in pipeline offers growth opportunities in the chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) market.
Product approvals by FDA and other regulatory authorities: Key driver in the chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) market
In recent years, pharmaceutical companies operating in the rare diseases arena have received approvals from FDA. Also, the European Medicines Agency (EMEA) has recognized chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP) as an orphan disease, with nearly 50,000 adult patients with chronic ITP in the European Union. In April 2018, FDA approved Tavaliss, an oral spleen tyrosine kinase (SYK) inhibitor that acts by impeding platelet destruction. In December 2018, FDA approved Nplate (Romiplostim) for the treatment of pediatric patients with chronic immune thrombocytopenia (ITP). In August 2018, Lusutrombopag received FDA approval to treat thrombocytopenia adults with chronic liver disease.
