Report Description


Multiple sclerosis (MS), which is also known as disseminated sclerosis, is an inflammatory disease of the nervous system. It is primarily characterized by the disruption of the nerve cells of the spinal cord and the brain, which results in the loss of ability to communicate along with various other physical, mental, and psychiatric problems. Secondary progressive multiple sclerosis (SPMS) is a type of MS that typically follows relapsing-remitting MS (RRMS). Approximately 65% patients with relapsing-remitting MS develop SPMS. Secondary progressive multiple sclerosis is difficult to diagnosis for neurologists due to progression. Repeated MRI scanning of the brain and neurological examinations are used to diagnose SPMS. Fatigue, depression, and problems thinking, stiffening or tightening of leg muscles, bowel and bladder problems, and trouble with coordination are key sign and symptoms of secondary progressive multiple sclerosis.

Increasing prevalence of neurological disorders, rising demand for advanced therapeutics for the treatment of SPMS in developing nations are some major factors driving the market. Multiple sclerosis is the most widespread neurological disorder that can affect individuals at any age; however, it is mainly diagnosed people between the ages of 20 and 40. According to Multiple Sclerosis Foundation, there are more than 2.5 million people suffering from multiple sclerosis around the world in 2015.
