With government support, various research institutes are providing drugs and therapies to the SLE patients. Several new drugs are under trial which are funded by government. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in the US is regularly releasing SLE disease statistics and warning citizens about the severe consequences of the disease, especially in women population.
  • Challenges: However, the market has been confronted with some challenges specifically, stringent regulatory environment, high cost of drug development, etc. Stringent regulatory environment is one of the major challenges to the systemic lupus erythematosus market. Traditionally, all vaccinations, medical gadgets, and helpful medications developed to treat certain diseases have undergone extensive testing in clinical trials to ensure their safety and feasibility in treating the disease. These trials are very time consuming and rules and regulations associated with it are very stringent. Due to this reason, research organizations or pharmaceutical companies have to experience slow progress towards regulatory approvals. The strict regulations would restrain the growth of the market.
  • Trends: The market is projected to grow at a fast pace during the forecast period, due to various latest trends such as rising clinical trials, adoption of stem cell therapy, rising awareness among people, etc. For the treatment of Lupus, stem cell therapy may be one of the most promising new dimensions of medicine, especially for those who do not respond well to more traditional kinds of treatment. Adoption of Stem cell therapy is increasing because this is a new and advance technique to treat lupus and that would boost the SLE market growth.
