Anaplastic Astrocytoma Treatment Market Industrial Progress 2017 to 2022
Astrocytoma is a medical condition that develops from astrocytes, a star-shaped brain cells. The disease has been categorized into four different groups based on reproduction rate of the cell, and its capability to spread in nearby tissues. Grades I and Grades II astrocytomas are non-malignant, and can be referred to as low grade. However, Grades III and Grades IV are malignant, and has the capacity to spread quickly. With time, lower grade astrocytoma can change to high grade astrocytoma. Grade III astrocytomas are also called as anaplastic astrocytomas. Anaplastic Astrocytoma is a rare medical condition, and can be divided into two categories – IDH-mutant, IDH-wildtype. IDH1 is a gene that encodes for a metabolic enzyme called isocitrate dehydrogenase 1. According to American Brain Tumor Association, about 25,000 new cases of primary malignant brain tumors were diagnosed in the U.S. in 2016. Moreover, about 50% of gliomas are glioblastomas. Occurrence of anaplastic astrocytomas is more common in adults compared to children, according to American Brain Tumor Association (ABTA). The ABTA estimates that anaplastic astrocytomas in people aged 30-35 years accounted for 17% of primary malignant brain tumors, however, only 9% of tumor in children are glioblastomas.

The drug has also been granted orphan drug designation for the treatment of anaplastic astrocytoma and glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) in September 2017. Moreover, an experimental drug PAC-1 was cleared for the clinical trial of patients with anaplastic astrocytoma in November 2017. The drug candidate is being developed by Vanquish Oncology, Inc. The trial will determine if the drug candidate is safe to use in combination with a standard chemotherapy drug, temozolomide.
