 Betahistine Market

Betahistine stimulates the H1 receptors of the inner ears and causes vasodilation to increase the permeability of the blood vessels which causes a reduction in the endolymphatic pressure. It is also helpful in reducing the asymmetrical functioning of the vestibular organs and enhances the blood flow in the vestibulocochlear region. Betahistine is a potent H3 receptor antagonist that increases the serotonin level in the brainstem region in order to prevent the activity of vestibular nuclei to treat vertigo by maintaining balance.

As per the latest research citings posted by the World Health Organization (WHO), the annual incidence rate of vertigo is 48.3% in the European Union region. Additionally the strategic collaboration between the academic research institutes and pharmaceutical companies for orphan drug development in the treatment of PWS-linked obesity further propels the market growth in the region. The Asia Pacific is anticipated to register steady market growth during the forecast period on account of the rising prevalence of vertigo migraine across all age groups and the flourishing market for generic drugs in the Asia Pacific region.
