Market Insights
Ophthalmologist are currently employing the healing pathway of nerve growth factor (NGF) which is a neurotrophin that initiates neuronal sprouting by injured and intact neurons, a landmark discovery made by R. Levi Montalcini a nobel laureate. The human cornea produces high affinity NGF receptors which plays an important role in stimulating both survival and proliferation of epithelial and nerve fibres. Oxervate follows this pathway to treat neurotrophic keratitis across all age group.

Neurotrophic keratitis is an orphan disease with a global prevalence rate of 5 per 10,000 people. It is manifested by the damage of trigeminal nucleus nerve innervations present in the eye corneal region which dampens the healing process of corneal injuries. The treatment approach is adopted as per the different stages of the disease. Artificial tears are recommended in all the phases to ensure wetness, cleanliness and lubrication of the corneal surface. Topical antibiotics are prescribed in the stage 2 of the disease as a preventive measure against bacterial infection. In stage 3 surgical procedures such as Tarsorraphy, and amniotic membrane transplantation are preferred to treat corneal ulcers. Recent approval of Oxervate a recombinant human nerve growth factor by EMA and USFDA will bolster the neurotrophic market growth during the forecast period.
