Interferon Beta Drugs Market Insights

The rising prevalence of multiple sclerosis (MS) across the globe is driving market growth. It’s a disabling disease of the brain and spinal cord (central nervous system), where the immune system attacks the protective sheath (myelin) that covers nerve fibers and causes communication problems between the brain and the rest of your body. According to several studies, some of the major factors responsible for developing MS include low vitamin D levels in the blood is a risk factor for the development of MS, smoking increases a person’s risk of developing MS, and obesity in childhood and adolescence, particularly in girls, increased the risk of later developing MS. In turn, an increasing number of chain smokers, and obese people are expected to support the demand for interferon beta drugs in the market. Additionally, the potential factors associated with the interferon beta drugs like, it can slow down the worsening of the disease and simultaneously decrease the symptoms, and can be used in combination therapies for the treatment of multiple sclerosis are further bolstering the market growth.
