Muckle Wells syndrome (MWS) is a rare genetic disorder which is characterized by recurrent fever, urticarial rash, joint pain, progressive sensorineural hearing loss, amyloidosis and other systemic features. MWS belongs to a group of disorders called cryopyrin-associated periodic syndromes (CAPS). The disease is caused by mutations in the NLRP3 gene which produces cryopyrin, a protein involved in the production of interleukin-1 beta (IL-1β), which is a pro-inflammatory cytokine. Currently, anti-IL-1 therapies such as anakinra, canakinumab and rilonacept are used for the symptomatic treatment of MWS. These novel therapies have shown significant clinical improvement in patients with relieved symptoms and reduced disease burden.
The global Muckle Wells syndrome Market was valued at US$ 146.4 Mn in 2023 and is expected to exhibit a CAGR of 12% over the forecast period 2023-2030, as highlighted in a new report published by CoherentMI.
Increasing adoption of novel therapies: The promising clinical efficacy demonstrated by anti-IL-1 therapies such as anakinra, canakinumab and rilonacept in reducing symptoms of MWS has led to their widespread adoption. These therapies are now considered first line of treatment for MWS as they provide relief from recurrent fever, joint inflammation and skin manifestations. Canakinumab (Ilaris) from Novartis received FDA approval in 2017 and is gaining increased preference over other alternatives owing to its ease of administration.
Rising awareness: Non-governmental organizations and patients advocacy groups are playing a crucial role in enhancing awareness about rare genetic disorders such as MWS. Supported initiatives include educational programs for healthcare professionals, conferences and seminars. This is helping in earlier diagnosis and timely management of symptoms. Growing awareness will likely augment demand of therapies and drive the Muckle Wells syndrome market growth over the forecast period.
