Drug Eluting Balloons Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Restenosis prevention continues to be a major challenge for the interventional cardiologists. This is because of inevitable limitations of the present technologies or therapies in preventing the recurrence of stenosis (narrowing of blood vessel). There are different types of cardiac stents such as drug eluting stents (DES) and bare metal stents (BMS) available for treating stenosis. Although drug eluting stents attenuated the level of cell proliferation and reduced the need for revascularization, there are risks related to late stent thrombosis and long term dependency on antiplatelet...
AFP Testing Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) is the most widely found plasma protein in human fetus.  The AFP protein found in humans is encoded by the AFP gene that is located on chromosome 4.  It is a major plasma protein which is produced during fetal development in yolk sac and the liver.  AFP is a glycoprotein which is found in monomeric, dimeric and trimeric forms. The protein is normally made by immature liver cells in the fetus therefore; infants have higher levels of AFP, which falls to normal adult level by the end of first year.  Usually, low level of AFP protein is...
Nano-biotechnology Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends, and Forecast, 2012 - 2018
By - Transparency Market Research
The branch of nanotechnology that deals with the study of biological and biochemical applications is known as nano-biotechnology. The study indulges mostly into deeply classifying the elements of living things or organisms and then modifying the same into nano products. Nano-biotechnology is a vital element boosting the new developments in the field of biotechnology. Biological research coupled with nano-technology continuously leads to the development of new inventions.  The formulation of concepts in nano-biotechnology involves the following: Devices...
