Scleroderma is an autoimmune condition that is characterized by hard and thickened skin along with blood vessel problems. Scleroderma is a connective tissue disease that results in an overactive immune system. This condition can also lead to scarring, pain, and inflammation. Scleroderma, a chronic disease, sometimes leads to scarring on kidneys and lungs. It might cause blood vessels to thicken leading to high blood pressure and tissue damage. This condition is not infectious, cancerous, or contagious. Scleroderma symptoms vary from person to person.

There are two types of scleroderma: localized and systemic. In localized scleroderma, the condition is limited to the skin and internal organs are not affected. Apart from the skin, localized scleroderma may also affect underlying muscle and tissue. In systemic scleroderma, the condition spreads to visceral organs. The vascular and the immune systems are affected by systemic scleroderma. Blood vessels are also affected leading to spasmodic color changes. This condition is referred to as Raynaud phenomenon.
The diagnosis of scleroderma is very difficult as it resembles a variety of other disorders. The diagnosis of scleroderma is done by a dermatologist, respirologist, orthopaedist, rheumatologist, or a general internist. The diagnosis relies majorly on the physical examination along with a study of medical history. The diagnosis process starts with a discussion with the patient to note down the medical history followed by a physical examination that includes observation of the affected areas. In order to confirm the diagnosis, the doctor might suggest lab tests. The doctor might also suggest for a skin biopsy. If the affected person shows typical symptoms and skin thickening the diagnosis becomes very easy. However, in some cases, the diagnosis takes several months.
The treatment for scleroderma is aimed at the individual features that influence different areas of the body. To prevent kidney failure, elevated blood pressure levels are treated. Angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor class of drugs are frequently used to alleviate blood pressure. There is no medicine available to stop the overproduction of collagen. However, the symptoms and complications of scleroderma can be abated by using multiple medicines. Immunosuppressant drugs are used to reduce the symptoms of scleroderma. Various ointments are also used to prevent infection. Physicians also prescribe mild to strong painkillers. Surgical procedures are used as last resort that includes amputation and lung transplants.
Around 300,000 people have scleroderma in the United States. Out of these, one-third people have systemic scleroderma. As scleroderma develops progressively and appears in varied forms, it is not very easy to diagnose. Currently, a cure for scleroderma doesn’t exist as overproduction of collagen cannot be stopped by any medication. It is, however, possible to treat organ system complications for minimizing damage and maintaining functionality.
Rising incidence of scleroderma and increasing frequency of genetic mutations along with severe environmental changes are the major drivers that will boost the growth of scleroderma diagnostics and therapeutics market. Moreover, the rise in disposable income and increasing awareness regarding preventive healthcare is expected to take the market to new heights. Factors such as extensive R&D related to diagnosis and treatment of scleroderma will create opportunities for the market players. Unfavorable drug effects, ironclad government regulations, high costs related to the diagnosis of scleroderma are some of the factors that will restrict the growth of scleroderma diagnostics and therapeutics market.
