Global Acute Ischemic Stroke (AIS) Market– Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
- Since the COVID-19 virus outbreak in December 2019, the disease spread to over 100 countries across the globe, and the World Health Organization (WHO), declared it a public health emergency on January 30, 2020.
- COVID-19 affected the economy in three main ways: by directly affecting the production and demand of drugs, by creating disruptions in distribution channels, and through its financial impact on firms and financial markets. Due to nationwide lockdowns, several countries such as China, India, Saudi Arabia, the U.A.E., Egypt, and others faced problems regarding transportation of things from one place to another.
- However, the COVID-19 pandemic had positive impact on the global acute ischemic stroke (AIS) market, owing to increasing complication such as stroke caused by COVID-19. For instance, on September 06, 2022, according to the study published by Journal Brain, researchers reported that brain injury is common in the patients suffering from diseases like coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and influenza. COVID-19 is associated with neurologic complications such as stroke, autoimmune encephalitis, and Guillain-Barré syndrome. The physical brain injury were evident in COVID-19-related neurologic syndromes such as encephalitis and stroke. Various reports stated that COVID-19 is associated with brain injury that can occur even in the absence of a concomitant neurologic diagnosis.

*Definition: An ischemic stroke is caused by a blockage that cuts off the blood supply to a region of the brain. A transient ischemic attack, is a temporary blockage of the blood supply to a region of the brain, resulting in symptoms, that lasts only for a short amount of time. Stroke is a leading cause of disability and death worldwide. In the U.S., a stroke occurs every 40 seconds in individuals, and every four minutes, a person dies of stroke. About one in four strokes are recurrent, with the risk particularly high within 30 days after the initial event and even higher at time periods closer to the initial event.
