Analysts Insight

At present, like many other rare diseases, there is no cure for 22q11.2 deletion syndrome. It is worth mentioning that as a result of the early diagnosis in cases like heart and palate defects, evidence-based protocols can be followed in the early stages of diagnosis to improve the quality of life for children. In such cases, surgery is the major option. The major treatment challenge is seen in patients with psychopathologies (such as Autism, Anxiety disorders, Psychotic disorder [Schizophrenia], Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder [ADHD], and Mood Disorders). In such cases diagnosis is also a major challenge. Antidepressants, antipsychotics, and stimulants are used as off-label therapeutic choices to address all of the aforementioned behavioral and psychiatric traits. Behavioral therapy, on the other hand, is another important part of the treatment process. The pipeline for 22q11.2 deletion syndrome is not competitive, and if Zygel (ZYN002) gets approved by regulatory authorities in the coming years, the overall market size in the seven major markets is likely to grow, as there will be no expected competition.

Access and Reimbursement Scenario

Children are born with this disorder, they require a lifetime of expenditure over diagnosis, treatment, and other supportive care. In a study by Peter et al. (2017), the average pediatric medical care cost associated with the diagnosis of 22q11.2 deletion syndrome in the general population was estimated to be USD 727,178. Costs were highest for patients ascertained prenatally (USD 2,599,955) or in the first year of life (USD 1,043,096), those with cardiac abnormalities or referred for cardiac evaluation (USD 751,535), and patients with low T-cell counts (USD 1,382,222), presumably reflecting the fact that more severely affected cases are more likely to have come to attention early, and that they have a larger number of years of accumulated costs.
