In vitro diagnostics (IVD) is a type of medical test to help detect and diagnose diseases or infections and determine a course of treatment, under a controlled environment such as a laboratory. The global IVD market is expected to grow owing to increase in demand for non-invasive medical procedures and high prevalence of chronic and infectious diseases such as tuberculosis (TB), cardiovascular diseases, cancer and diabetes. The speed of results generated also play a significant role in selecting a diagnostic tool/technique. Rapid diagnostic tests such as cartridge based molecular technology helps deliver TB diagnosis results in less than two hours and thereby help in early detection, better control and limit the prevalence of a disease in a region or country.
Cord blood is a rich source of stem cells that have ability to differentiate into a range of cell types. Stem cells with high proliferation capacity posses low risk of tumor formation and viral contamination. Thus, stem cells is rapidly becoming choice of treatment for the patients suffering from life threatening conditions such as cancer and blood, metabolic and immune system disorders.
The demographic shifts in the U.S. population comprise the growing aging population and the shrinking household population. Customers are becoming more brand conscious about cosmetic products. Thus, brands are diversifying their product portfolio to target new customer groups by shifting their focus from the younger generation to the middle-aged population.
The increasing women population of age 35 to 65 years across the globe engenders a greater demand for anti-aging cosmetic and aesthetic treatments. Owing to the distinctive viscoelastic and moisturizing properties coupled with lower toxicity levels offered by hyaluronic acid-based products, the demand for this polymer in dermal fillers is expected to grow. In addition, its application in the treatment of vesicoureteral reflux is anticipated to grow due to the minimally invasive nature of the involved procedures.
The sports medicine market is inclusive of numerous medical equipment that are routinely utilized to address mild to severe injuries caused due to sports and other physical activity. Chronic diseases and lifestyle-related habits contribute to approximately 75.0% of the health costs.
Biomarkers are substances or enzymes present in the body that indicate presence or occurrence of a certain disease. Cancer biomarkers can be a molecule expressed by the body as a response to tumor presence. The biomarkers are majorly genetic, proteomic, epigenetic or phenotypic in nature. Most of the cancer biomarkers can be assayed in noninvasive fluids such as blood & serum and are easily detectable without causing much pain.
Akin to other industries, healthcare too is going digital. Actually; data analytics, software-based technology, cloud computing, and IoT (Internet of Things) are set to transform ‘life sciences’ like never before
Cartilage is a flexible and semi-rigid avascular connective tissue that performs supporting function and prevents friction between the bones due to its shock absorbing nature. There are three types of cartilage such as elastic (yellow), hyaline, and fibrocartilage. Damage to the cartilage obstructs the normal movement of knee, hip, shoulder, finger, elbow, foot and ankle, and can cause pain. If left untreated, the joints may get damaged.
Histology and cytology are studies of chemical composition, microscopic structure, &functioning of tissues and cells respectively through advanced medical devices. Different types of microscopes can be used to study the structure of cells and tissues to determine the cause or nature of a disease. Recent developments in diagnostic testing and healthcare system are expected to improve the pathology landscape across the globe.
Medical electrodes function by transferring the ionic current energy of the body into electrical current that can be amplified and examined for diagnosis of various cardiac, ocular, nervous, and muscular diseases. Medical electrodes play a vital role in providing ideal electrical contact between the patient and apparatus/device used to record or measure activity. Medical electrodes contain lead, metal, and electrode-conducting paste or gel.
Tourniquets are mechanical devices that are used during surgeries for temporary control of blood circulation. Multiple research studies have revealed that commercially available tourniquet systems can be effective in the management of uncontrolled, life-threatening extremity hemorrhage
Biosimilars are medical biologics that are identical to original products. They are basically ‘complex’ and ‘large-molecular-weight’ molecules made in living cells via genetic engineering. The global biosimilars market is predicted to experience noticeable expansion over the next few years.
The management of chronic ailments has become extremely convenient with telehealth facilities. Fixed & mobile ‘home units’ monitor temperature, blood pressure, etc. These parameters can be reviewed from a long distance.
With a generation obsessed with beauty & perfection, a gorgeous smile and sparkling teeth are the keys to holding people’s attention. Cosmetic dentistry has fulfilled this dream !
Superdisintegrants are added to drug formulation in order to facilitate the dissolution of tablet or capsule content into reduced particles. It is usually used in lesser quantities in the solid dosage form, typically ranging from 1-10% by weight, which is relative to the total weight of the dosage unit. Some of the widely used products include crospovidone, croscarmellose sodium and sodium starch glycolate.
Defibrillation is a treatment for ventricular fibrillation and nonperfusion ventricular tachycardia. These episodes can cause Sudden Cardiac Arrest (SCA). Almost 50.0% of the cardiovascular deaths can be attributed to SCA.Due to imbalance in the electrical system of the heart, the heart rhythm is affected, which leads to arrhythmias. This condition may lead to SCA.
2016 witnessed a continued increase in contract manufacturing operations with an objective to cut back on in-house costs and capacity while maintaining the product quality and timelines. With growing pressure of biopharmaceutical demand and R&D costs, CMOs/CROs have significantly grown to gain ground in biopharmaceutical industry.
“Regenerative medicine” is an emerging scientific and medical field that offers therapies to treat diseases by regaining and/or restoring structure and function of damaged organs, tissues and cells. These medicines regenerate body’s ability to restore the functions and structure as a part or whole treatment protocol. Strong pipeline of products for the treatment of cardiovascular, neurodegenerative, oncology, and rare genetic disorders exists. Ability to cure the incurable diseases reflects high market potential over the coming years.
Plasma-rich platelet (PRP) treatment is being highly touted as one of the most successful procedures for management of orthopedic diseases and sports injuries. Adoption of this therapy is now gaining momentum as it is becoming the preferred choice of treatment for reducing wrinkles, scars, or even dark circles, owing to the treatment’s benefits.
In the current scenario, technological advancement in large-scale downstream bioprocessing systems is an ever-increasing trend in biotechnology. Popularity of single-use bioprocessing instruments, advancements in existing separation & purification techniques are expected to drive growth in the near future.
