Nanomedicine Coverage at Cientifica: Full Sector Coverage from Diagnostics to Drug Delivery Systems

London, UK | Posted on April 2nd, 2012

Targeted drug delivery therapies for the treatment of cancer is one of the most commonly cited nano-healthcare benefits. Cientifica's report, Nanotechnology for Drug Delivery, gives a comprehensive analysis and geographic breakdown of the current nanotechnology drug delivery market and its most relevant technologies. It also provides a forecast for the size of total addressable markets and percent share of those key technologies to 2021.

Nanotech enabled medical diagnostics promise to improve just about everything that can be improved from a diagnostics point of view: earlier detection of disease, higher sensitivity, higher accuracy, higher throughput capability, more results per assay; time saving and cost-effectiveness.

Since we now know most (if not all) biological processes occur at the nanoscale, the application of life science principles - studying the causes of biological phenomena at the molecular level - means medical and biomedical research is increasingly using a bottom-up (rather than the top-down) approach. The low bioavailability resulting from traditional oral and intravenous drug delivery methods and the market forces at work in the pharmaceutical industry, where patents expire after a relatively short period of time unless a novel form of drug delivery is developed that will extend the patent, are two major forces that will fuel the growth of the nanotech drug delivery market. The third factor at play is a combination of improved global health and a correspondingly dramatic increase in the size of the global aging population.

Our studies and reports provide insight into targeted nanotech drug delivery, medical diagnostics and their market potential over the next decade.
