Global Scleroderma Diagnostics and Therapeutics Market: Overview
Scleroderma, a very rare autoimmune disorder of the skin, is a term coined from the Greek words “sklerosis,” which means hardness, and “derma,” meaning skin. Thus, scleroderma literally translates to “hard skin.” Scleroderma is a group of diseases that involves the abnormal growth of connective tissue, which supports the skin and internal organs. In some forms of scleroderma, the extent of the abnormality of the disease is limited to hard, tight skin. In certain other forms, however, the predicament is worse, where the impact goes much deeper, affecting blood vessels and internal organs, such as the heart, lungs, and kidneys. Scleroderma has no known cure and is a chronic condition, in which patients are affected for life. Localized scleroderma patients, however, with mild symptoms, often see the skin patches disappear on their own in a few years post-onset.

Global Scleroderma Diagnostics and Therapeutics Market: Segmentation
Based on indication, the global scleroderma diagnostics and therapeutics market has been segmented into localized and systemic scleroderma. Localized scleroderma affects only the skin, and in certain patients, the underlying muscle, however, systemic scleroderma (also known as systemic sclerosis) is much severe and affects the internal organs as well.
The major drug classes for treatment of scleroderma include Corticosteroids, Immunosuppressive Agents, Endothelin Receptor Agonists, Calcium Channel Blockers, PDE-5 Inhibitors, Chelating Agents, Prostacyclin Analogues, and Others. The others segment includes the drug classes of analgesics, proton pump inhibitors, prokinetic agents, H2 blockers and ACE inhibitors etc. which are used in symptomatic relief to the patient. Immunosuppressive agents and low dose corticosteroids are the most commonly prescribed agents to treat scleroderma.
Based on test type, the diagnostics market has been segmented into skin biopsy, imaging techniques, blood test, electrocardiogram and echocardiogram, and pulmonary function tests. Diagnosis of the disease is based on physician’s assessment of patients’ medical history and clinical manifestations. In addition, tests and procedures are undertaken to validate the clinical diagnosis and exclude alternative diagnoses, and later for assessment of organ involvement and monitoring of disease progression.
