Epidermolysis bullosa (EB) is an inherited connective tissue disease causing blisters in the skin and mucosal membranes, with an incidence of 1/50,000. It is a result of a defect in anchoring between the epidermis and dermis, resulting in friction and skin fragility. Its severity ranges from mild to lethal. Significance of EB: The human skin consists of two layers: an outermost layer called the epidermis and a layer underneath called the dermis. In individuals with healthy skin, there are protein anchors between these two layers that prevent them from moving independently from one another (shearing). In people born with EB, the two skin layers lack the protein anchors that hold them together, resulting in extremely fragile skin- even only minor mechanical friction (like rubbing or pressure) or trauma will separate the layers of the skin and form blisters and painful sores. Sufferers of EB have compared the sores with third-degree burns. Furthermore, as a complication of the chronic skin damage, people suffering from EB have an increased risk of malignancies (cancers) of the skin.
Importance and Scope:
Epidermolysis bullosa has significant medical and market potential. As many as 30,000 Americans suffer from the disease, a similar prevalence to cystic fibrosis, yet DEBRA the Dystrophic Epidermolysis Bullosa Research Association of America - often refers to EB as ‘the worst disease you’ve never heard of,’ he says. “EB is debilitating and potentially disfiguring. There are currently no FDA-approved treatments for EB, nor are there any effective treatments resulting from products approved for other indications.” The FDA has granted its breakthrough-therapy and orphan-drug designations to Zorblisa. The drug has also been granted orphan-drug status by the European Medicines Agency.
The Dermatologists industry is growing, due in large part to the aging population and the mounting awareness of the dangers of sun exposure. However, the industry is highly competitive. It is dominated by small establishments, and dermatologists are competing with lower-cost providers of similar services, such as medical spas. In response, dermatologists are progressively focusing on subspecialties, such as cosmetic dermatology or dermapathology. Dermatology market growth has averaged 6.7% a year in bn $.
