Innovations in Oncology Diagnostics: Technological advances, growth opportunities and future market outlook–Aarkstore Enterprise

December 20, 2009 by admin 

Aarkstore announce a new report  “Innovations in Oncology Diagnostics: Technological advances, growth opportunities and future market outlook” through its vast collection of market research report.

Despite public policy measures to prevent cancer, such as tobacco control and vaccination against HPV, cancer is sure to remain a significant public health problem throughout the 21st century. Indeed, the global demographic shift towards an ageing population and the spread of high tech modern medicine throughout the emerging economies of Asia and (maybe later) Africa, will expand the market for cancer diagnostics globally. Major developments are likely in both the IVD market and in imaging-based modalities, like computed tomography, with the emphasis being upon the personalized medicine approach, where demand will come from physicians, patients and payors – all of whom want more effective treatments and value for money. This report analyzes the latest innovations in oncology diagnostics and identifies the most exciting new technologies and trends, ranging from body imaging and cytology to molecular diagnostics and pharmacogenomics. The report also identifies the key challenges facing innovative diagnostics companies. Key Features of this report•Analysis the latest innovations in diagnostics imaging in the oncology sector, covering Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), x-ray, Computed Tomography (CT), ultrasound, Positron Emission Tomography (PET), Single Photon Emission Computed Tomography (SPECT) and Flow Cytometry.•Analyzes the latest innovations in molecular diagnostics and how they impact the diagnostics market. The report covers technology including fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH), polymerase chain reaction (PCR), HPV testing, immunoassays & biomarkers, microarrays and comparative genomic hybridization (CGH).•Analyzes the latest innovations in pharmacogenomics and covers the major applications for familial cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer and lung cancer. Also, the report provides an overview of the regulatory and intellectual property environment for genetic-based tests.•Looks at the key commercial challenges for innovative diagnostics companies, including the impact of the recession, reimbursement, regulatory changes, pharmacoeconomics and the relationship between industry and academia.The report Includes in-depth case studies on the potential technologies available in core areas of un-met need such as ovarian cancer and colorectal cancer. Key benefits of this report•Understand the latest innovations in the oncology diagnostics market in the core areas – diagnostic imaging, molecular diagnostics and pharmacogenetics. This includes market information and an analysis of the scientific literature so as to identify what is really innovative.•Identify what the key areas of unmet need are in the oncology diagnostics market and understand which products have the greatest potential over the next decade.•Understand what the greatest challenges are for oncology diagnostics and what the best strategies are for coping with these obstacles. •Understand the competitive landscape and what companies are leading the way in terms of innovation, and what the latest partnerships regarding companion diagnostics.•Business Insights has identified five key areas of innovation in the diagnostics markets, use this to help guide company strategy.Key findings from this reportMolecular diagnostics and biomarkers are the key drivers of the oncology diagnostics market.Despite the deep economic recession, R&D spending has held up for oncology diagnostics companies. However, M&A activity has been impacted with the value of deals conducted in 2009 far below the peak year of 2007.Partnerships between diagnostic firms and pharmaceutical firms represents the future of the industry and the number of companion deals has been increasing in the past few years. Virtual colonoscopy – using CT scans to build a picture of the colon – is becoming an increasingly accepted alternative to invasive colonoscopy for colorectal screening in high risk groups and the general population. This presents a sizeable market opportunity. Interesting research is being conducted in both ovarian cancer and for prostate cancer, which could have wide-market implications. Specifically, companies are looking to validate new biomarkers to create more accurate tests.Key questions answered by this reportWhat is the market potential for in vitro diagnostic products?What is the market forecast for oncology diagnostics? What are the key innovations in diagnostic testing and diagnostic imaging?What are the major areas of unmet need in oncology diagnostics?What are the most promising technology areas in oncology diagnostics, and which companies are exploiting these?What will be the key trends impacting the market in the long-term?How can big pharma fully exploit the opportunities in the oncology diagnostics sector?
