NEW YORK, Feb. 24 Guidepoint Global, LLC, a leading primary research firm, today announced the launch of their Genetic Disorder Tracker, a monthly longitudinal data release that captures commercial trends, on a worldwide basis, associated with the treatment of eight rare genetic disorders: Gaucher's disease, Fabry's disease, PKU, MPS I (Hurler Syndrome), MPS II (Hunter Syndrome), MPS VI (Maroteaux-Lamy Syndrome), Niemann-Pick disease and Pompe disease.

Guidepoint's Genetic Disorder Tracker aggregates the utilization of more than 10 therapies reported by a clinical sample comprised of more than 100 worldwide sites in over 20 countries. Key commercial metrics covered by the Guidepoint Genetic Disorder Tracker include treatment volume, market share, drug penetration rates, therapy switching, patient activity and the geographically-stratified performance of leading company participants including Genzyme (GENZ), Shire (SHP), BioMarin (BMRN), Merck Serono, Actelion (ATLN), Pfizer (PFE) and Protalix (PLX), among others.

"Despite being a broad product area with over $2 billion in annual sales, it has been nearly impossible to systematically track the genetic disorder market, especially on a global basis," said Maxim Jacobs, Senior Analyst at Guidepoint Global. "This need has become even more acute with the recent supply disruptions in Gaucher's and Fabry's as well as the upcoming new product launches. Guidepoint Global's new Genetic Disorder Tracker will provide followers of the genetic disorder market with a much needed tool to analyze the market and identify meaningful changes in the size and character of the commercial landscape."

The Genetic Disorder Tracker is the 28th Tracker developed by Guidepoint Global. The firm's Tracker offerings, a collection of novel research products that monitor usage trends and market share in select medical technology and therapeutic industries, deliver timely, accurate insight in a broad range of inefficiently-covered healthcare product areas in over 50 countries.
