Some sources estimate that TBI is ten times as prevalent as spinal cord injury
and on an annual basis, at least 150 people per 100,000 population are treated
in hospitals for TBI. In the United States, statistics provided by the
National Centers for Disease Control (CDC) report that - on an annual basis -
some one million people are impacted by TBI.
As a consequence of increased military engagement, more soldiers are returning
from combat theaters with TBIs. It has been estimated that up to 83 percent of
soldiers returning from Afghanistan and Iraq exhibit a variety of brain injury
symptoms. To add to this picture, increased attention is being paid to
athletes affected by TBI and the link to early-onset dementia.
Currently, no effective TBI therapy exists, with patients treated through a
combination of surgery, rehabilitation and pharmacological agents managing
post-trauma conditions such as depression. Consequently, the considerable
target population leads Arrowhead Publishers to estimate that the global
market value for TBI therapy is in the region of US$1-2 billion, with the
majority of this accounted for by potential demand across Europe and in the
Traumatic Brain Injury: R&D Pipeline Assessment and Market Prospects takes a
closer look at TBI and its future treatment prospects. It provides a thorough
examination of its causes, symptoms, prognosis, treatment, epidemiology and
unmet clinical need. In addition, it provides the reader with an overview of
key potential markets for TBI therapeutics and assesses various therapies
currently in development for TBI. Future trends in TBI research are also
discusses at length. Finally, financial forecasts for the TBI therapeutic
market are provided along with an analysis of the challenges and opportunities
facing developers of TBI therapies.
