Lambert-Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome (LEMS) Therapeutics Market is Expected to Gain Popularity Across the Globe

Press Release   •   Feb 14, 2017 00:08 EST

Lambert-Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome (LEMS) exceptional autoimmune syndrome involving improper transmission at neuromuscular junction with the key clinical symptom of muscle weakness. Weakness in muscles in LEMS is caused due to autoantibodies to voltage gated calcium channels resulting in reduction of acetylcholine released from terminals of the nerve. The necessary knowledge of elusive clinical features and laboratory oddities makes the early identification of LEMS possible. Early detection of LEMS is principally significant due to its strong correlation with small cell lung cancer (SCLC). Even though LEMS can arise at any point in the path of SCLC, it serves as a marker for early detection of the disease, and thus permits better opportunity for treatment of such malignancy. Patients with LEMS should be examined and then treated by both a neurologist and if appropriate, an oncologist. In case of the diagnosis the principal concern must be appropriate treatment of malignancy. Treatment of LEMS includes immunosuppressant agents, but success of the treatment depends on toxicity and trouble involved in administering the therapy.

Treatment of LEMS involves various approaches that include reducing the amount of antibodies so as to improve the muscle function, increasing the acetylcholine quantity received by the muscles, increasing the overall acetylcholine released in the body and other mechanism which are not approved in all the regions. The therapy involving reduction in the amount of antibodies comprises of corticosteroids, cyclosporine, azathioprine, monoclonal antibodies and many more. The therapy involving the amount of acetylcholine reception by the muscles comprises of Cholinesterase inhibitors. The therapy involving the increased amount of acetylcholine production in the body comprises of aminopyridines. There is a drug which treats the disorder but those are not approved in all the regions. This category includes amifampridine which is approved only in European countries.
