A relatively rare form of ocular allergy, Vernal keratoconjunctivitis (VKC) can result into severe visual complications. VKC is an IgE- and T-cell meditated disease, causing a chronic inflammation with non-specific, barely understood hypersensitivity responses. The ocular allergy is characterized by conjunctival hyperemia, itching, photophobia, and tearing, with symptoms usually more severe during spring and summer.

Vernal keratoconjunctivitis prevalence is relatively higher in dry and hot climates (Mediterranean areas, Central and West Africa, and South America), however, it has a wide geographical distribution.

  • As per DelveInsight estimates, total Vernal keratoconjunctivitis prevalent population in the total market (7MM, China, Egypt, Saudi Arabia and Russia) is increasing in the study period. Among all the geographies, China was observed to account for the maximum VKC prevalence
  • Furthermore, a higher percentage of diagnosed Vernal keratoconjunctivitis prevalence was observed in males, in comparison to females, during the study period 2017-30. Majority of the patient pool was estimated to be of the age-group 0–20 years old with an age of onset between 10–12 years old; however, there are reports of patients as young as 5-months-o
  • Based on the subtypes, Palpebral Vernal keratoconjunctivitis accounted for the majority of the total prevalent cases approximately 48%, whereas Bulbar VKC accounted for approximately 44% of the total VKC cases with rest 8% were designated mixed.

The Vernal keratoconjunctivitis market report proffers in depth epidemiological segmentation analysis for the study period 2017-30, the epidemiology for this disease is segmented as following in the report:

  • Total Prevalent Population
  • Diagnosed Prevalent Population
  • Gender-specific Diagnosed Prevalent Population

Treatment of Vernal keratoconjunctivitis requires multiple approaches that include conservative measures and pharmacologic treatment. The present Vernal keratoconjunctivitis treatment market comprises mast cell stabilizers, vasoconstrictors, antihistamines, ‘dual-acting’ agents (with antihistaminic and mast cell stabilizing properties), nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), topical corticosteroids, cyclosporine, tacrolimus, and immunosuppressive drugs.

The treatment is only supportive in nature and is not that effective. However, with the advancement of technology and a better understanding of the pathophysiology of the disease several novel emerging therapies are in the horizon to advance Vernal keratoconjunctivitis market.

However, there exists no defined or standard care for the VKC patients. VKC treatment algorithm requires to be tailored as per patients ‘requirements with proper understanding of the duration of the treatment regimen and a careful monitoring for the corneal complications.

Vernal keratoconjunctivitis Marketed Drugs

  • Verkazia/Verkacia: Santen
  • Lodoxamide/Alomide: Novartis Pharmaceuticals/Alcon
  • Talymus/Tacrolimus: Senju Pharmaceutical

As per DelveInsight, global Vernal keratoconjunctivitis market is expected to change in the study period 2017–2030. With the launch of therapies in the VKC pipeline such as Verkazia (Santen), AK002 (Allakos), Bertilimumab/iCo-008 (iCo Therapeutics), and Nomacopan (Akari Therapeutics) in the US, the Vernal keratoconjunctivitis market size is expected to grow in the forecasted period 2020–30. Out of the emerging therapies, the most anticipated product to get launched and occupy the major chunk of Vernal keratoconjunctivitis market share is the AK002 (Allakos).

Furthermore, there are other companies who have their drugs in the early pre-clinical phases of development such as including Postbiotica and Sylentis, hence the launch of their therapies is expected further after in the forecasted period.

Vernal keratoconjunctivitis Pipeline Drugs

  • Antolimab (AK002): Allakos
  • Bertilimumab/iCo-008: iCo Therapeutics
  • Nomacopan: Akari Therapeutics
  • Verkazia: Santen

With only limited treatment option available in the market, there are lucrative opportunities for the pharma players in the Vernal keratoconjunctivitis market to dominate and grow. Moreover, the current pipeline appears weak, which further becomes a significant inviting factor for the companies to explore the VKC market. However, poor diagnostic modalities, easy availability of OTC medications, generics and strict reimbursement policies are expected to obstruct and slow down the Vernal keratoconjunctivitis market growth.
