Peripheral arterial disease (PAD) is a common manifestation of systemic atherosclerosis affecting the arteries in the lower extremities. This condition is considered a major marker for systemic ischemic events such as stroke and myocardial infarction. Given that asymptomatic patients make up a large percentage of the total PAD population, it is largely underdiagnosed, under-recognized, and undertreated. However, there is growing recognition that optimal management of PAD requires aggressive secondary prevention measures. PAD treatment is dominated by well-established generic drugs, restricting the overall market value, but emerging therapies, such as stem cell therapies, could significantly boost the market. Overall, the increasing number of prevalent cases, combined with substantial unmet needs and the development of novel therapies, makes the treatment of PAD a high-growth opportunity.
