The Stargardt Disease market report also covers current treatment practices, developing drugs, individual Stargardt Disease therapy market shares, and current and predicted Stargardt Disease market sizes from 2018 to 2030, segmented by seven major markets.

Stargardt Disease: Overview

Stargardt Disease (STGD) is named after Karl Stargardt, a German ophthalmologist who first reported a case in his practice in 1901. Stargardt Disease is the most common inherited single-gene retinal disease. It is usually inherited in an autosomal recessive manner due to mutations in the ABCA4 gene. It is rarely inherited autosomally dominantly due to ELOVL4 or PROM1 gene defects. It is distinguished by macular degeneration that begins in childhood, adolescence, or adulthood and results in progressive vision loss.

Stargardt Disease Epidemiology Segmentation

The Stargardt Disease report proffers epidemiological analysis for the study period 2018-30 in the 7MM segmented into:

  • Stargardt Disease Total Prevalent Cases

  • Stargardt Disease Diagnosed and Treatable Cases 

  • Stargardt Disease Type-Specific Cases

  • Stargardt Disease Gender-Specific Cases

  • Stargardt Disease Age-Specific Cases

Stargardt Disease Treatment Landscape

Stargardt Disease, like other types of macular degeneration, currently has no cure. If there is blood vessel proliferation or leakage, it is sometimes treated with intraocular injections of anti-VEGF drugs, similar to “wet” Age-related Macular Degeneration treatments.
