Cancer is the number two cause of death, behind only cardiovascular disease. Cancer affects people worldwide. Every region of the world, and every country, is affected. The International Agency for Cancer, World Health Organization, reports that the estimated incidence of cancer worldwide in 2012 was 14,068,000. The most common types of cancer worldwide include breast cancer, colorectal cancer, lung cancer, and prostate cancer. These are common cancers in the United States and Europe, and are the focus of much therapeutic and diagnostic activities, and thus also the target of much of the cancer biomarker activity. It is important to remember, though, that novel biomarkers, therapies, and diagnostic tests are also being developed for other types of cancers.
This report contains company profiles, including coverage of the following:
The various clinical techniques and trends are discussed from the point of view of their present and potential market impact. Therefore, the report does not provide an in depth discussion of the etiology, physiology and clinical manifestations of diseases except where an understanding of these areas is required to understand the impact that new and early diagnostics exert on patient care. Similarly, the report does not describe the technical aspects of the test modalities used in PMx tests.
The information presented in this report is derived on publicly available information sources such as company, government, and medical organization reports. The analysis is based on the author's industry knowledge combined with literature searches and interviews with industry professionals and experts in the areas of in vitro diagnostics and personalized medicine.
