Underactive Bladder (UAB) is a clinical condition in which urination disorder is developed as a result of reduction in the contraction of the detrusor muscle (a muscle of the bladder) during urination. It is characterized by the feeling of having to urinate immediately, and thus, this condition is different from the Overactive Bladder (OAB). The present invention provides a pharmaceutical composition useful for the prevention or treatment of UAB which has an effect of improving the urinary flow rate, an effect of improving the over distension of the bladder (an effect of reducing bladder capacity), and is therefore, useful for the prevention or treatment of UAB.
Moreover, it is a disease state which is different from the OAB characterized by urinary urgency which has been attracting attention in recent years. Causes of UAB include autonomic neuropathy such as diabetes and alcoholism, pelvic surgery such as radical hysterectomy and radical rectal cancer, spinal cord diseases such as spina bifida, and disc herniation is also known. Patients suffering from severe and mild bladder disorder-associated problems need pharmacotherapy often cycled with multiple therapies and without adequate relief receiving continued treatments, which also creates an impact on healthcare expenditure.
Global Underactive Bladder Market Dynamics
This section deals with understanding the market drivers, opportunities, restraints, and challenges. All of these are discussed in detail below:
Increasing prevalence of neurological disorder
UAB is a common neurological condition in which nerves and muscles do not work together very well resulting in prolonged urination time with or without a sensation of incomplete bladder emptying. In this condition, the detrusor muscles underperform for their contraction activity which is characterized by a slow urinary stream, hesitancy, and straining to void, with or without a feeling of incomplete bladder emptying, sometimes with storage symptoms even. Thus, the bladder either does not empty or empties only partially which is due to the bladder muscles being unable to release urine properly.
As a result, patients with UAB may have various urination symptoms and may be accompanied by a large amount of residual urine. Complications of urinary retention due to aggravation and Urinary Tract Infections (UTIs) due to chronic residual urine are often seen and have become a problem. Moreover, it is a disease state which is different from the OAB characterized by urinary urgency which has been attracting attention in recent years. Thus, the increasing prevalence of neurogenic bladder disorders is expected to drive market growth. This will lead to an increased demand for treatment that can detect patients as well, due to which there will be expected lucrative growth in the market.
Rising health care expenditure
The instruments, manpower, and medical management in case of any harm to researchers, insurance, transportation, ethics committee fee, data processing, and other consumables lead to major cost involvement for the market players. The healthcare expenditure comprises all healthcare services, testing devices, family planning activities, and emergency aid designated for health. National Health Accounts provide many indicators based on expenditure collected within an internationally recognized framework. The factors determining any country's healthcare expenditure are income (per capita GDP), technological progress and variation in medical practice, and health systems characteristics.
The rise in healthcare expenditure simultaneously helps healthcare organizations and government bodies increase the research activities on menopause drugs, their upcoming clinical trials, and R&D activities. Also, the cost involved in the production and manufacturing of the new products, the market players require adequate allocation of funds and resources, hence, the government acts as a helping hand in this scenario. Growing healthcare expenditure is also beneficial for further economic development and growth of the healthcare sector. In addition, the increase in disposable income of the population is a favorable factor. Hence, rising healthcare expenditure is expected to drive market growth in the future.
Rising urologic complications of diabetes
One of the known causes of UAB includes autonomic neuropathy such as diabetes. Moreover, diabetes is associated with an earlier onset and increased severity of urologic diseases that result in costly and debilitated urologic complications. These urologic complications, including bladder dysfunction and UTIs among others, have a profound effect on the quality of life of both men and women with diabetes. Diabetes and urologic diseases are very common health problems that markedly increase in prevalence and incidence with advancing age. Urologic complications of diabetes are an immediate effect. Diabetes is the most prominent disorder and has a high prevalence globally.
Diabetes-associated bladder complications can be due to an alternation in the detrusor smooth muscles, neuronal dysfunction, and urothelial dysfunction. Depending on the nerves involved, the effects of diabetic neuropathy can range from discomfort and numbness in the legs to complications with the digestive system, the urinary tract, the blood vessels, and the core. The rising data on diabetes will significantly increase the risk of urologic complications of diabetes worldwide. Thus, it is required to recommend future directions for research and clinical care for proper treatment of urologic complications of diabetes. Support from other organizations would also be required to reach the under-developed regions to tackle the neglected complications. Therefore, this signifies that the rise in urologic complications of diabetes is expected to act as an opportunity for market growth.
High cost of Research and Development (R&D)
R&D is a prerequisite in modifying the procedure intended to treat different kinds of patients. The higher cost of R&D for new products demands deep research and clinical studies. The various clinical phases in R&D require huge investments which can affect market growth. The research cost involved in planning and execution of the studies, and research requires adequate allocation of funds and resources, which can affect new developments in the market. The cost of the product plays a major factor in the market. Many diagnostic options are available in the market, but due to their high cost, most people tend to avoid going for a diagnosis. Diagnostic approaches have come with greater sensitivity and specificity cost of the test also increased.
The high cost of the procedure is due to various checkpoints of treatments along with the use of high-tech modalities to perform such procedures. As cost of R&D for treatments is too high, it restricts accommodating high-quality and effective solutions. Henceforth, the high cost negatively impacts the cost of overall treatment. Consequently, it will constrict the future demand for treatment in low and middle-income countries. This suggests that the high cost associated with the research and studies is expected to restrain market growth which can further impact the launch of new products in the market.
