Market Highlights

Transverse myelitis is a neurological disorder caused due to the inflammation across both sides of one segment of the spinal cord. This disorder can occur in any age and sex, but female patients are at higher risk of having transverse myelitis. The causes of transverse myelitis include infections, immune system disorders, and other disorders that may damage or destroy myelin, the fatty white insulating substance covering the nerve cell fibers. The increasing prevalence of transverse myelitis (TM), growing prevalence of diseases which can lead to transverse myelitis such as viral infections and some types of cancers, rising in research and development activities, and increasing expenditure on healthcare sector by the government in developed as well as developing countries is anticipated to propel the global transverse myelitis market. According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, it is estimated that about 1,400 new cases of transverse myelitis (TM) are diagnosed each year in the US.

However, high cost associated with the diagnosis and treatment of transverse myelitis can hamper the growth of the market over the assessment period.
