Biomarkers

Published: Apr, 2015 | Pages: 1303 | Publisher: RESEARCH IMPACT TECHNOLOGIES
Industry: Biotechnology | Report Format: Electronic (PDF)

This report on Biomarkers focuses on the different types of biomarkers and their impact on various disease areas such as oncology (prostate, ovarian, breast and lung), neurology (stroke, brain tumor, neurodegenerative diseases), cardiology (coronary heart disease, heart failure, myocardial infarction), infectious diseases (GIT, respiratory tract infections) and other areas including metabolomic turmoil, arthritis, gynecology, oxidative stress, liver disease, pulmonary disease and aging, etc. The study provides global market analysis for biomarkers by the above disease areas and also by prominent biomarker identification technologies including imaging, genomics, proteomics, metabolomics, gene expression and other technologies comprising fluorescent indicators, lab-on-chip, nuclear magnetic resonance, mass spectrometry/liquid chromatography and nanobiotechnology. Compilation of Worldwide Patents and Research related to Biomarkers is also provided. The report offers market values for global geographic regions including North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of World.
