SAN FRANCISCO, November 8, 2018 /PRNewswire/ --

The global huntington's disease treatment market size

is expected to be valued at USD 1.5 billion by 2023, as per a new report by Grand View Research, Inc., registering a CAGR of 38.2% during the forecast period. The market is largely driven by factors such as rapid uptake

Huntington's disease is an inherited neurodegenerative disorder characterized by a combination of motor, cognitive, and psychiatric symptoms. Currently, only two symptom-alleviating therapies are specifically approved for this disorder: Xenazine and Austedo. Off-label medications are used extensively due to lack of approved alternatives.

The pipeline for Huntington's disease is expected to witness rapid developments in the coming years as disease-modifying drugs transform the market landscape. Improved disease understanding has led to significant progress in the development of therapeutic approaches aimed at modifying specific changes linked to the causative mutation. The potential role of RNA antisense technology and stem cell therapy are under active clinical investigation. Wave Life Sciences and Ionis Pharma's antisense oligonucleotides aim to target underlying disease cause and are expected to contribute significantly to market growth.
