Dublin, Aug. 15, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/qslj8l/global_lysosomal) has announced the addition of the "Global Lysosomal Storage Diseases Market 2014-2018" report to their offering.
The term lysosomal storage diseases refers to a group of rare inherited disorders caused by the deficiency of lysosomal enzymes, activator proteins, proteins required for normal post-translational modification of lysosomal enzymes or proteins required for intracellular transport between lysosome and other cellular compartments.
These deficiencies result in deficient enzymatic activity which, in turn, leads to accumulation of partially digested or undigested macromolecules inside the cell. The clinical manifestations of lysosomal storage diseases depend on the type of substrate stored, cell types affected by this storage, and resulting organ involvement. Due to the high variability of these components, the clinical manifestations of even a single disease vary from person to person.
These symptoms also vary between members of the same family with identical mutations. The age of onset also varies for lysosomal storage diseases depending on the rate of substrate accumulation. Lysosomal storage diseases are classified on the basis of the substrate being accumulated or on the type of molecular defect associated with the disease. Neuronal ceroid-lipofuscinoses vary from classical lysosomal storage diseases where the component that gets accumulated is mitochondrial ATP synthase subunit C or sphingolipid activator proteins A and D.
The analysts forecast the Global Lysosomal Storage Diseases market will grow at a CAGR of 10.01 percent over the period 2013-2018.
