Global Cancer Diagnostics Market 2021: Focus on Immunoassay (Tumor Markets), Molecular (Cancer Assays, Histology, HPV) and CTCs

Dublin, Dec. 24, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "World Market for Cancer Diagnostics 2021" report has been added to's offering.

Cancer testing is maturing from personalized medicine to precision medicine, where protein and molecular biomarkers are essential for precise diagnosis, therapy selection, therapy monitoring and early detection of cancer recurrence.

The World Market for Cancer Diagnostics, as well as relevant industry merger data, provides an authoritative and complete analysis of the cancer testing industry, with expert market sizing and opportunity assessment.

The report contains detailed market data on the following IVD segments for their use in cancer diagnostics:

  • Immunoassay - tumor markers
  • Molecular - cancer assays
  • Molecular - histology
  • Molecular - HPV
  • CTCs

This report contains

  • Investments and Financing Agreements For Cancer Diagnostics Companies
  • Selected Agreements Between Cancer Diagnostic Companies
  • Selected Agreements Between Cancer Diagnostic Companies and Other Diagnostic Companies
  • Selected Agreements Between Cancer Diagnostic Companies and Pharmaceutical or Biopharmaceutical Companies
  • Selected Cancer Diagnostic Company Agreements with Academic or Other Non-Profit Organizations
  • Selected Acquisitions of Cancer Diagnostic Companies
  • Complete Market and Trend Analysis

The phenomenon of test personalization comes under many guises as pharmacogenomic, pharmacogenetic, companion tests, and represents one of the fastest-growing segments of the market for cancer tests. It has emerged fully from research into clinical practice. Instrumentation now automates many of the sample preparation and assay steps that were formerly labor intensive.

New tests are being launched all the time. Some personalized cancer tests are CE Marked and FDA-cleared and many more are in development. More and more laboratories offer complex panels of tests that help physicians evaluate disease risk and make therapeutic decisions. Government and private healthcare payers have recognized the value of new molecular tools and are agreeing to pay for them.

Unparalleled Review of Cancer Testing Competitors: Top Tier IVD Companies And Specialist Companies

This report is written from the point of view of diagnostic modalities for the detection and management of cancer and in particular solid tumors. The technology to detect cancers of the blood - lymphomas, myelomas and leukemia - is mature and well established. The routine complete blood count screens for blood cell abnormalities and is followed by bone marrow analysis and flow cytometric studies of the blood cell surface markers. These to arrive at a more specific diagnosis.

The emphasis is on in vitro diagnostic tests, however, a discussion of the role of diagnostics in cancer management must include in vitro and in vivo tests. The two are inextricably linked. The same cell markers used in flow cytometry and antibodies used for immunoassays to detect elements of the immunity process are used as vectors for imaging agents to detect tumors and to monitor the extent of cancer metastasis.
