Stargardt disease is an inherited juvenile macular degeneration that causes vision loss. The signs and symptoms of the disease typically appear in late childhood or early adulthood, and worsen with time. The most common cause of the disease is mutations in the ABCA4 gene. People suffering from stargardt disease might notice grey or black colour in the middle of eye, or eyes may be more sensitive to bright light. Others may even have symptoms of colour blindness. The prevalence for the disease is low, reported at around 1 in 8,000-10,000 people globally, as stated by National Eye Institute in April 2015. Hence, the disease falls into rare disease category. Till date, there is no treatment available, though there are multiple therapies in pipeline.
Robust pipeline for each treatment type that may get regulatory approval over the forecast period is expected to boost the growth of stargardt disease therapeutics market
Treatment options for Stargardt disease include drug, gene therapy and stem cell therapy. There are products in each of these category currently in clinical trials. For instance, Nightstar Therapeutics expanded its pipeline with gene therapy program for Stargardt Disease treatment in November 2017.
