Cancer Diagnostics (Tumor Biomarker Tests, Imaging, Endoscopy and Biopsy) Market 2014 - 2020
M2 - Tue Nov 18, 9:30AM CST
Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/cgz62c/cancer) has announced the addition of the "Cancer Diagnostics Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2014 - 2020" report to their offering. Imaging, endoscopy, biopsy and tumor biomarker tests altogether comprise the global cancer diagnostics market. Imaging for cancer detection remains the largest segment in the cancer diagnostics market owing to its utilization in detection of almost every cancer type. MRI, PET, CT, mammography and ultrasound are the major imaging modalities, of which, CT scan and ultrasound imaging account for more than two-third of the total cancer imaging market. A tumor biomarker test is a segment in the cancer diagnostics market with highest research activity. Cancer biomarkers are increasingly being applied in cancer diagnostics; a highly sensitive and specific biomarker essentially helps in better diagnosis, monitoring and prognosis of cancer. Protein-based biomarkers such as alpha-fetoprotein (AFP), cancer embryonic antigen (CEA), prostate-specific antigen (PSA) are among the prominently used tumor biomarkers. The market for cancer diagnostics is majorly driven by demand from the patients affected with cancers of lung, breast, and colorectal cancer. Lung cancer is the most common cancer of all types and approximately 1.8 billion new cases of lung cancer were diagnosed in 2012. The increasing use of tobacco products in developing nations, particularly in BRICS countries, is contributing to the growing prevalence of lung cancer in the world. In 2013, the global lung cancer diagnostics market accounted for one-fourth of the global cancer diagnostics market revenue. In addition, the rising prevalence of breast cancer among women across the world, particularly in the Asia Pacific, is expected to drive the market for breast cancer diagnostics at the highest CAGR of 8.2% during the forecast period 2014 to 2020. The global cancer diagnostics market is led by players such as Abbott Laboratories, Ambry Genetics, AstraZeneca, bioMerieux, Eli Lilly and Co., Roche, GlaxoSmithKline plc, Novartis, and Pfizer. Scope of the Report Tumor Biomarker Tests: - PSA Tests - CTC Tests - AFP Tests - CA 19-9 - CA 125 - EGFR - HER2 - CEA - BRCA - KRAS - ALK Imaging - MRI Scan - PET Scan - CT Scan - Mammography - Ultrasound Endoscopy - Bronchoscopy - Colonoscopy - Sigmoidoscopy - Colposcopy - Others Biopsy - Bone Marrow Biopsy - Needle Biopsy - Endoscopic Biopsy Cancer Diagnostics Market, by Application: - Leukemia - Breast Cancer - Colorectal Cancer - Kidney - Liver - Lung - Ovarian - Pancreatic - Prostate Companies Mentioned - Abbott Laboratories, Inc. - Ambry Genetics - AstraZeneca plc - Eli Lilly and Company - F.

AstraZeneca Presents Data from Phase III Studies of Lesinurad in Combination with Allopurinol in Gout Patients at American College of Rheumatology 2014 Annual Meeting
Business Wire - Sun Nov 16, 8:00AM CST
AstraZeneca (NYSE: AZN) today presented top-line results of two pivotal Phase III trials investigating the potential of lesinurad, a selective uric acid re-absorption inhibitor (SURI), when used in combination with xanthine oxidase (XO) inhibitor allopurinol. The results show that approximately twice as many patients met the primary endpoint with a statistically significant higher proportion of patients reaching the target sUA goal of <6.0 mg/dL at month 6, compared to those treated with allopurinol alone. The data was presented as a late-breaking presentation at the American College of Rheumatology (ACR) 2014 Annual Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts. Lesinurad is an investigational agent that inhibits the uric acid transporter URAT1 in the kidney, increasing uric acid excretion and thereby lowering sUA.
