DUBLIN, July 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
Research and Markets has announced the addition of Jain PharmaBiotech's new report "Drug Delivery in Cancer - Technologies, Markets and Companies" to their offering.
Drug delivery remains a challenge in management of cancer. Approximately 12.5 million new cases of cancer are being diagnosed worldwide each year and considerable research is in progress for drug discovery for cancer. Cancer drug delivery is no longer simply wrapping up cancer drugs in a new formulations for different routes of delivery. The focus is on targeted cancer therapy. The newer approaches to cancer treatment not only supplement the conventional chemotherapy and radiotherapy but also prevent damage to normal tissues and prevent drug resistance.
Innovative cancer therapies are based on current concepts of molecular biology of cancer. These include antiangiogenic agents, immunotherapy, bacterial agents, viral oncolysis, targeting of cyclic-dependent kinases and tyrosine kinase receptors, antisense approaches, gene therapy and combination of various methods. Important methods of immunotherapy in cancer involve use of cytokines, monoclonal antibodies, cancer vaccines and immunogene therapy.
Drug delivery strategies vary according to the type and location of cancer. Role of drug delivery in the management of cancers of the brain, the bladder, the breast, the ovaries and the prostate are used as examples to illustrate different approaches both experimental and clinical. Biodegradable implants of carmustine are already used in the treatment of malignant brain tumors.
The market value of drug delivery technologies and the anticancer drugs are difficult to separate. Cancer market estimates from 2016-2026 are given according to organs involved and the types of cancer as well as according to technologies. Distribution of the into major regions is also described.
Profiles of 234 companies involved in developing innovative cancer therapies and methods of delivery are presented along with their 278 collaborations. The bibliography contains over 650 publications that are cited in the report.The report is supplemented with 65 tables and 13 figures.
