- Biomarker Technology Platforms for Cancer Diagnoses and Therapies
Until superior therapeutic treatments are developed to prevent, treat and cure cancer, the best means of reducing mortality and morbidity in a disease this complex is early detection and diagnosis. In the major solid cancer types such as lung, breast, colon and prostate, long-term survival rates drop precipitously once metastatis has occurred. The case is clear for development of biomarkers for early detection and screening tests for diseases such as breast, colon, ovarian and lung cancer. In addition, diagnostic measurement of cancer disease progression is essential to successful disease management. For these reasons, development of new and effective biomarkers for cancer detection and diagnosis is central to the cancer problem. The use of nucleic acid biomarker diagnostics have begun to answer these questions. Protein biomarkers are also useful. The purpose of this TriMark Publications report is to describe the specific segment of the cancer diagnostics market which develops new biomarker technology platforms for diagnosing and treating cancer. Biomarkers are useful in following the course of cancer and evaluating which therapeutic regimes are most effective for a particular type of cancer, as well as determining long-term susceptibility to cancer or recurrence. This study particularly examines those clinical measurement devices, and their reagents and supplies, which are meant to be used in hospitals, clinics, commercial laboratories and doctor's offices to diagnose and monitor cancer. The examination also provides an in-depth discussion of the application of biomarkers in developing novel targeted cancer therapeutics, their predication response and efficacy, as well as their use in diagnosis of cancer.
- Cancer Cell Therapy Markets
Traditionally, treatment of disease is carried out by small molecules that target specific cell types. In diseases such as cancer, the treatment is meant to kill cancer cells, leading to the removal or at least the inhibition of cancer cell proliferation. In other circumstances, a variety of therapeutic molecules have been utilized lead the disease cells to perform a specific function that they normally do not. These include small molecules, peptides, proteins, antibodies, anti-sense RNAs and ribozymes. In the case of cell therapy, as the name indicates, treatment is carried out with cells instead of small molecules. In cell therapy, cells are given to the patient as the therapeutic delivery system for a specific disease to achieve therapeutic benefit. The purpose of this TriMark Publications report is to describe the market segment of the cell therapy market aimed specifically at cancer therapy. Moreover, a review of cellular agents that are related to the chemical and cellular constituents of blood or other tissues for cancer care of the patient is addressed in this study. The two most important areas where such agents are used are in the hospital and the clinic. Emphasis is on those companies and products that are actively developing and marketing cell therapeutic agents and supplies for treating cancer patients.
- Cancer Diagnostic Testing World Markets
Cancer testing is one of the most important growth opportunities for the next three to five years in the diagnostics segment. The National Cancer Institute estimates that about ten million Americans have or have had some form of cancer. Overall costs of the disease are $126 billion annually. Pharmaceutical companies are developing more than 300 new medicines for cancer, some of which are in development for more than one type of the disease, for a total of more than 500 ongoing R&D projects. The goal of this TriMark Publications report is to review the market for tumor marker testing equipment and supplies using screening reagents and instruments for analysis of individual components in blood, serum or plasma.

- Cancer Therapeutics Markets
Cancer is the second leading cause of death by disease in the United States, exceeded only by heart disease. Traditionally cancer has been treated with surgery, chemotherapy, hormones and radiation therapy, alone or in combination. Emerging technologies include photodynamic therapy, gene therapy, biological therapy (immunotherapy) and angiogenesis inhibitors. Pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies are investing billions of dollars to search out and develop weapons for the arsenal in the war against cancer. This TriMark Publications report provides an overview of the global market for cancer therapeutics. The examination focuses on the efforts of biotechnology companies and pharmaceutical firms to incorporate new technologies for developing anti-cancer drugs into their corporate strategies. This study examines cancer therapeutic products now on the market, as well as those currently under development that might be commercialized in the near future. Additionally, the report profiles a number of firms that are actively involved in marketing and developing of products to be used in the treatment of cancer--both large multinational corporations. The analysis also provides an overview of the disease and data on cancers by site or type. It provides incidence and mortality data for different types of the disease. In addition, the report provides a summary of each of the therapies that are being used to treat cancer.
- Cancer Vaccines Markets
Cancer vaccines have the potential to become a significant force in future cancer treatments. In 2010, Dendreon's Provenge became the first cancer vaccine approved by the FDA, generating renewed interest and support for this type of cancer immune therapy. Cancer vaccines can be divided into six main categories: antigen/adjuvant vaccines, DNA vaccines, vector-based vaccines, tumor cell vaccines, dendritic cell vaccines and anti-idiotype vaccines. This relatively new commercial market for cancer vaccines is poised to dramatically increase to over $7 billion by 2015. The purpose of this TriMark Publications report is to supply comprehensive information on the developing market for cancer vaccines. This study surveys almost all of the companies known to be marketing, manufacturing, or developing cancer vaccines in the world, providing in-depth analysis of the current and emerging technologies in the cancer vaccines market.

Detailed tables and charts with sales forecasts and market share data are also included.
- Companion Diagnostics in Personalized Medicine and Cancer Therapy
A near-term market opportunity for cancer companion diagnostic tests exists in drug selection for cancer therapy. Co-development of molecular diagnostics and targeted therapeutics has already been proven to be a successful strategy in the development of novel anti-cancer drugs. Adoption of biomarker development in clinical research provides great opportunities to identify patient subpopulations with differential drug responses and to uncover the underlying mechanisms. These data could help to explain if clinical trials of new drugs are adequate, and offer the possibility of creating a clear prescription path based on predictive biomarkers. The purpose of this TriMark Publications report is to describe the specific segment of the diagnostics market that develops new technology platforms for evaluating the metabolism of therapeutic agents, or for evaluating which therapeutic regimes are most effective for a particular type of disease. The term companion diagnostic means that the particular diagnostic test under evaluation is specifically linked to a known therapeutic drug. This linkage could be important in the therapeutic application and clinical outcome of a drug (personalized medicine), or an important component of the drug development process. This report focuses on the former linkage, i.e., the use of companion diagnostic tests in personalized medicine.
- Cytology and HPV Testing World Markets
Cancer is a group of diseases characterized by uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells. If the spread is not controlled, it can result in death. Cancer is caused by both external (chemicals, radiation and viruses) and internal (hormones, immune conditions and inherited mutations) factors. Causal factors may act together or in sequence to initiate or promote carcinogenesis. Ten or more years often pass between exposures or mutations and detectable cancer. Cancer is treated by surgery, radiation, chemotherapy, hormones and immunotherapy. The purpose of this TriMark Publications report is to describe the specific segment of the diagnostic market aimed at analysis cytology (the examination of cells using optical microscopy methods) specimens derived from the human female reproductive tract. It examines the measurement devices and their reagents and supplies used in hospitals, clinics, commercial laboratories and research institutions to detect cells and proteins for the diagnosis and monitoring of disease. The study describes the analytical methods used to separate, isolate, characterize and quantitate cells, DNA and proteins complex in biological systems related to the diagnosis and treatment of disease of the female reproductive tract, such as the cervix and vagina. The emphasis is on those companies and products that are actively developing and marketing laboratory instrumentation, reagents and supplies for performing cytology and related molecular diagnostic tests, such as human papillomavirus (HPV) and other inflammatory and sexually-transmitted diseases.
