Triple negative breast cancer market, by type of treatment, spans immunotherapy, targeted therapy, chemotherapy, and various others. The factors basically driving this market include early diagnosis and granting special designation (as an ailment to be exclusively treated due to growing prevalence). IT needs to be noted that as this kind of breast cancer is devoid of progesterone receptors, estrogen receptors, and excess HER2 (human epidermal growth factor receptor), hormonal therapy can’t work over here.
On the other hand, breast implantation surgery is in great demand with cosmetic surgeries taking the leap. Research states that women between 18 and 30 years of age opt for breast augmentation surgeries. Those suffering from breast cancer also prefer breast implants. By product, breast implants market spans saline breast implants and silicone breasts implants. Application-wise, it says cosmetic surgery and reconstructive surgery. Shape-wise, it’s anatomical and round.
Confocal microscope is being used in neurophysiology, neuroanatomy, material science, life science, and biology. Apart from microbial keratitis, confocal microscopy is coming up with a diagnostic tool to aid ophthalmic practices. These factors are bound to revolutionize the confocal microscope market in the upcoming period.
Coming to repairing the human body’s damaged tissues, Induced Pluripotent Stem Cells market, by type of derived cell, spans amniotic cells, hepatocytes, fibroblasts, keratinocytes, and others. Application-wise, it’s drug development and discovery, academic research, toxicity, and regenerative medicine. Regarding developments, in the year 2019, Fate Therapeutics collaborated with Juno Therapeutics for improving the services pertaining to pluripotent stem cells.
Minimally invasive surgery instruments are preferred as they render less pain post-surgery, reduce scars, and also reduce the hospital stay. However, lack of proper sterilization procedures coupled with improper performance-related quality assurance is expected to restrain the market. Device-wise, the market constitutes cutter instruments, inflation devices, handheld instruments, guiding devices, electrosurgical devices, auxiliary devices, and monitoring & visualization devices. Application-wise, it’s vascular, gastrointestinal, cardiac, gynecological, urological, orthopedic, thoracic, cosmetic, and dental, and others.
Amongst all, dental care cannot be ignored. Endodontic devices are witnessing modernization and technological advancements, which do lessen procedural errors. Preference to nickel-titanium reciprocating and rotary files over traditional stainless steel hand file systems has resulted in improvement in shaping and cleaning stages of endodontic procedure, which, in turn, leads to much better canal preparation. By type, endodontic devices market includes instruments (endodontic motors, endodontic scalers, apex locators, handpieces, endodontic lasers, machine assisted obturation systems, and others), and endodontic consumables (shaping and cleaning, access preparation, and obturation). End-user-wise, the market comprises dental clinics, dental academic and research institutes, and dental hospitals.
Coming to nano healthcare technology for medical equipment, they are active implantable devices, medical textile and wound dressing, implantable materials, and biochips. Application-wise, they find their way into research, diagnostics, and therapeutics.
Non-melanoma skin cancer market, by type of drug, spans electronic brachytherapy, radiation therapy, superficial radiation therapy (photodynamic therapy and chemotherapy), and external beam radiation therapy. Application-wise, it’s T-cell lymphoma, basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and others. This type of cancer is the most prevalent in Europe, followed by North America.
Bile duct cancer treatment involves gemcitabine combination therapy, 5-fluorouracil combination therapy, capecitabine combination therapy, and gemcitabine single agent. Coming to radiation therapy, it’s brachytherapy services and EBRT (External Beam Radiation Therapy). By diagnosis, it’s extrahepatic bile duct cancer (distal extrahepatic bile duct cancer and perihilar bile duct cancer) and intrahepatic bile duct cancer.
Hyperthermia treatment for cancer market, by type of device, spans ultrasound hyperthermia device, microwave hyperthermia device, short-wave hyperthermia device, and infrared hyperthermia device. Application-wise, it’s prostate cancer, head and neck tumors, leukemia, soft tissue sarcoma, liver cancer, breast cancer, and likewise. Increasing awareness on this part is likely to hold the hopes high for hyperthermia treatment.
