Vitiligo Market Research

What is Vitiligo?

Vitiligo is a long-term skin condition in which patches of skin lose color or pigment. Melanocytes produce the pigment known as melanin, which gives skin its color and protects against UV rays. In patients with vitiligo, the body’s immune system destroys the melanocytes, causing a lack of melanin in the skin. While vitiligo can affect people of any age, gender or ethnicity, it most commonly affects younger people.

There are two common types of vitiligo: nonsegmental vitiligo and segmental vitiligo. Nonsegmental vitiligo is the most common form, which occurs when there are scattered patches of color loss present all over the body. Segmental vitiligo on the other hand, usually only affects one side of the body.

Currently, Opzelura is the only treatment available to treat nonsegmental vitiligo. Other medications, phototherapies and laser therapies are also used to help restore some color in these patients.
