Executive Summary:

While the number of people suffering from parasitic disease toxoplasmosis is due to rocket in the next few years, current treatments are not stepping up to the challenge, according to a new report by healthcare experts GlobalData.

The new report states that parasite reemergence has resulted from global warming, urbanization and subsequent changes in livestock systems, while severe side effects, hypersensitivity and drug compliance issues in congenital cases are increasing patient dissatisfaction with current treatment methods.

In addition, no drug is currently able to eliminate latent or inactive stages of the parasite's life cycle should an epidemic hit a vulnerable population.

Toxoplasmosis is a parasitic disease spread through contact with animals and raw meat, and is thought to be carried by up to half of the world's human population. Infection can cause mild, flu-like symptoms, though many individuals experience no illness. However, weakened immune systems in AIDS patients and pregnant women can lead to serious illness, with rare fatalities occurring.

The treatment market comprises of several drugs often prescribed in combination depending on the severity of the infection and the form of toxoplasmosis.

Spiramycin is used in pregnant women infected with Toxoplasma gondii during their first trimester to prevent transmission to the foetus, but it has not been approved by US Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Adverse side effects and unestablished safety profiles for pregnant women demonstrate the need for developments in toxoplasmosis drug testing.

The lack of epidemiology studies and screening programs used to investigate toxoplasmosis implies that clinical understanding of the parasite could still be improved.

For companies looking to enter this market, GlobalData estimates that the global toxoplasmosis therapeutics market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 3.9% from 2011, to reach $1.55 billion by 2019.
