Assessment of the frontotemporal dementia markets in the United States, Germany, Spain, Italy, France, the United Kingdom and Japan (2017-2030)


DUBLIN, July 6, 2020 / PRNewswire / – The drug pipelines “Frontotemporal Dementia (FTD) – Market Overview, Epidemiology and Market Forecast – 2030” have been added to’s offer.This report provides an in-depth understanding of the disease, historical and forecasted epidemiology and trends in the FTD market in United States, EU5 (Germany, Spain, Italy, France and United Kingdom) and Japan.

The report provides current treatment practices, emerging drugs, individual therapy market share, current and projected size of the frontotemporal dementia (FTD) market from 2017 to 2030 segmented by seven main markets. The report also covers the current treatment practice / algorithm, market drivers, market barriers and unmet medical needs to best organize the opportunities and assess the underlying market potential.


The epidemiology of frontotemporal dementia (FTD) division provides information on the historical and current patient pool and the expected trend for seven main countries. It helps recognize the causes of current and projected trends by exploring numerous studies and opinions from key opinion leaders. This part of the report also provides the pool of patients diagnosed and their trends as well as the hypotheses retained. According to the editor, the total number of cases of frontotemporal dementia (FTD) prevalent in 7 MM was 76,499 in 2017.

Key Findings

The epidemiology of the disease covered in the report provides a historical and forecast epidemiology (prevalent diagnosed cases of FTD, prevalent cases of FTD by types, specific cases of primary progressive apahasia subtype and mutations associated with FTD) scenario of dementia frontotemporale (FTD) in the 7MM covering United States, EU5 countries (Germany, Spain, Italy, France and United Kingdom) and Japan from 2017-2030.

Drug chapters

This segment of the frontotemporal dementia report contains a detailed analysis of marketed drugs and drugs in the final phase (phase III and phase II). It also helps to understand the details of the clinical trial, the expressive pharmacological action, the agreements and collaborations, the details of the approval and patent and the latest news and press releases.

There is currently no disease-modifying treatment approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) or EMA (European Medicines Agency) or PMDA (Pharmaceutical and Medical Products Agency) for the management of FTD. Current treatment strategies are primarily based on the off-label use of drugs for symptom management, and most therapies lack quality evidence from randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trials. These therapies are based on the modulation of neurotransmitter levels and do not target the underlying pathophysiology of FTD. The FTD drug market is classified according to drug classes such as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (Citalopram, Fluoxetine), antipsychotic agents, cholinesterase inhibitors (donepezil, rivastigmine and galantamine), receptor antagonists NMDA (Memantine) and benzodiazepines.

Emerging medicines

AL001: Alector

AL001 is the human monoclonal antibody 100% owned by Alector and designed to modulate progranulin, a regulator of immune activity in the brain with genetic links to multiple neurodegenerative disorders, including FTD, Alzheimer’s disease and Parkinson’s disease. It aims to increase the level of progranulin in humans by inhibiting a mechanism of degradation of progranulin. In August 2019, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has granted Alector an Orphan Drug Designation for the continued development of AL001.

Market outlook
