Rising Instances of the Rare Disease Boosts Demand in Market
Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is a type of rare kidney disease that affects the kidney’s filtering system (glomeruli) resulting in proteinuria and serious scarring. Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis (FSGS) is usually fatal since it causes kidney failure within four to nine years followed by dialysis and then death. FSGS advances much more swiftly than diabetic nephropathy. Massive proteinuria, nephrotic syndrome, edema, hyperlipidemia, and hypoalbuminemia are some of the common symptoms of the disease. Risk factors include obesity, infection, sickle cell disease and reflux nephropathy.
“Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis affects approximately 210,200 patients worldwide with 14,000 to 16,000 new cases every year. This has been a major growth driver in the market.
