Acute Intermittent Porphyria Market Accretes A Phenomenal Growth By 2023 With A Striking 5.6% CAGR; Asserts MRFR

Acute Intermittent Porphyria Market Information: By Diagnosis (Blood, Urine, DNA, Serum), Treatment (Gonadotropin-Releasing Hormone Analogues, Prophylactic Hematin Infusions), End User (Hospitals & Clinics, Research Centers) – Global Forecast till 2023

Market Scenario

Acute intermittent porphyria (AIP) is a genetic metabolic disorder. It affects the production of heme, the oxygen-binding prosthetic group of hemoglobin. Generally, it is characterized by a deficiency of the enzyme porphobilinogen deaminase.

The major causes of acute intermittent porphyria are abnormal urinary color, anorexia, insomnia, myalgia, and urinary retention. In some cases, AIP develops liver cancer (hepatocellular carcinoma), and some develop kidney failure. Other symptoms include gastrointestinal issues, urinary tract issues, neurological issues, psychiatric issues.
