Urea Cycle Disorder (UCD) is an assembly of rare genomic ailment which affects approximately 3,000 - 7000 people every year in the U.S. UCD is triggered by an alteration in genes, which causes insufficiency of any of the six vital enzymes essential for the urea cycle.
Read Report Overview -
Urea cycle includes a sequence of biochemical steps in which one of the waste products of protein metabolism (nitrogen) in blood is removed and progressively converted into a compound called urea. In end, urea in the blood is removed the body as urine.
In UCD, nitrogen amasses in the form of ammonia, which is a highly poisonous substance for the body. It results into a precarious condition called hyperammonia (elevated levels of ammonia in blood). If the ammonia enters the brain cells via blood, it can lead to coma, irremediable brain damage, or in serious condition death.

According to reports published by the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), the anticipated incidence of UCD is 1 in 8500 births. Research findings suggest that many of the cases of UCD persist undiagnosed. In some of the cases, the newborn with UCD dies without a conclusive diagnosis.
The precise global incidence of such cases is underrated or unknown. Some of the scientists in Europe suggest that Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) cases might be due to an unknown inborn error of metabolism, for example, UCD. These scenarios are anticipated to drive the urea cycle disorders treatment market in the next few years.
Additionally, research & development initiatives undertaken by research & academic institutes supported by pharmaceutical companies as well as governments are estimated to drive the global urea cycle disorders treatment market. Consequently, want of diagnosis & treatment options, unavailability of skilled personnel, and lack of reimbursement policies in developing countries are some of the factors hindering the growth of global urea cycle disorders treatment market.
The UCD treatment market is less competitive as compared to other markets as UCD is a rare disorder and no conclusive research regarding it has been conducted so far. Government and pharmaceutical companies need to create awareness in the market and collaborative approaches should be undertaken.
