Manufacturers are engaged in developing therapeutic treatment for the patients with primary biliary cholangitis, which in turn is expected to drive the primary biliary cholangitis treatment market size. For instance, in March 2015, NGM Biopharmaceuticals, Inc., announced the positive results for phase 2 trial of NGM282 in patients with Primary Biliary Cirrhosis (PBC). NGM282 is an engineered protein variant of human hormone, fibroblast growth factor 19 (FGF19) that maintains bile acid and metabolic regulatory activities as well as eliminates tumorigenic effects of FGF-19.
According to the study results, NGM282 is proven to be a potent regulator of bile acid synthesis. Furthermore, in June 2016, Retrophin Inc. acquired ownership of a liquid formulation of ursodeoxycholic acid from Asklepion Pharmaceuticals, LLC. Ursodeoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring bile acid that dissolves gall bladder stone rich in cholesterol and also improves the flow of bile in primary biliary cholangitis. Moreover, in February 2018, Intercept Pharmaceuticals, Inc. announced the updated prescribing information for Ocaliva (obeticholic acid or OCA) in the U.S. to emphasize appropriate dosing in primary biliary cholangitis (PBC) patients with Child-Pugh Class B or C or decompensated cirrhosis. However, lack of awareness among the patients, families and physicians, which result into delayed diagnosis for rare diseases, may hinder primary biliary cholangitis treatment market growth. Most of symptoms associated with rare diseases are masked by the symptoms of common illness and may not be detected by doctors.
