New York Press Releases
(NewYork.CityRegions.Com, March 20, 2019 ) Lewy body dementia (LBD), also known as dementia with Lewy bodies, is the second most cause of progressive dementia in the U.S., following Alzheimer’s disease. Lewy body dementia is characterized by progressive decline in mental abilities such as memory, change in alertness and attention. There are two types of Lewy body dementia, viz. dementia with Lewy body and Parkinson’s disease dementia. Lewy body dementia is a progressive disease, i.e., symptoms start to show gradually and worsen with age. Progression of Lewy body dementia differs from person to person depending on age, overall health, extent of symptoms, etc. Common symptoms of Lewy body dementia include visual hallucinations, sleep difficulties, cognitive problems, poor regulation of body function, depression, apathy, etc. Typical chances of survival of patient with Lewy body dementia can be 5-7 years after the onset of symptoms. However, early diagnosis and immediate treatment may lengthen this time to 20 years. Currently, there are no treatments to cure Lewy body dementia and only symptomatic treatments are recommended. Currently available Lewy body dementia treatment may slow down the disease progression. Lewy body dementia treatment involves multidisciplinary action plans, each of which addresses management of different symptoms. For instance, melatonin and other OTC sleeping aids are recommended for treatment of sleeping disorders. Levodopa is prescribed for improvement in motor function. A comprehensive treatment plan may involve medications, physical and other types of therapy, and counseling.
Rapidly growing aging demographics coupled with growing incidence of dementia are the factors driving the growth of Lewy body dementia treatment market over the forecast period. According to the NHS U.K., over 100,000 people in the U.K are suffering from Lewy body dementia and is one of the common types of dementia. Lewy body dementia accounts for approximately 5–15% of all dementia. Number of patients with comorbid conditions such as LBD and Alzheimer’s disease, LBD and Parkinson’s disease, Senile dementia with LBD, etc. are growing rapidly, which is expected to drive the growth of Lewy body dementia treatment market over the forecast period. However, there exist no differential diagnostic tests that can differentiate LBD from other similar disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. This restricts early treatment of Lewy body dementia, which may deter the global market growth.
