A new market study, titled “Biologic and Medical Imaging Reagents: Global Markets”, has been featured on WiseGuyReports.
Biological imaging reagents play a fundamental role in today’s medical, pharmaceutical and biotechnology industries. Optical imaging reagents allow life sciences researchers and drug developers to visualize and detect biological processes at the molecular level and to perform key genomics, proteomics and cellular analysis assays. Nuclear and contrast reagents provide important diagnostic information to physicians, enabling the early detection and treatment of disease conditions in cardiology, neurology and oncology.
The strategic importance of biological imaging reagents in life sciences was recognized in 2008 with the awarding of the 2008 Nobel Prize in chemistry to Asamu Shimomura (Japan), Martin Chalfie and Roger Tsien (United States) for their research on green fluorescent proteins (GFPs). GFPs are an important class of biological imaging reagents that are widely used in proteomics and cellular analysis.
The global market for biological imaging reagents is primarily driven by advancements in biomarker technology in medical diagnostics. Biomarkers have tremendous potential to impact the success rates of clinical trials, drug development and medical diagnosis. However, lack of standardization has always been a major challenge in biomarker diagnosis. Moreover, in working toward establishing interoperability among clinical systems, the demand for automated image quantification and integration of clinical and image data has emerged. Thus, the continuous developments in quantitative imaging biomarkers (QIBs) had created the need for standards as the images acquired are not uniform and there can be differences in interpretation at different levels. Image-based assessment of treatment responses can be highly variable, depending on the make and model of the imaging equipment used and how the images were acquired, processed and the guidelines by which they were interpreted. For example, if a cancer patient has a positron emission tomography (PET) scan done at one hospital using one type of scanner and procedures, and two months after treatment has a PET scan on a different scanner or with different procedures, the measurements from the two scans might not be comparable.
To address this issue, the Radiological Society of North America has established the Quantitative Imaging Biomarker Alliance (QIBA), which aims to improve the value and practicality of quantitative imaging biomarkers by reducing variability across devices and time. Currently, QIBA standards have been established for two standardized profiles, which include accurate and reproducible 18Ffluorodeoxyglucose (FDG) PET/CT measurements; and CT tumor volume measurements. This will improve the reliability of cancer imaging studies and is considered a major positive trend in the global market for biological imaging reagents. The global biological imaging market is expected to reach nearly $23.9 billion by 2022 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.6% during the forecast period of 2017 to 2022.
