Vena Cava Filters Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends and Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Inferior vena cava or posterior vena cava is the largest vein in the human body responsible for carrying de-oxygenated blood from the lower extremities of the body into the right atrium of heart and then to the lungs. Vena cava filter is a medical device designed to prevent blood clots from travelling to lungs. These filters are implanted by interventional radiologists or vascular surgeons and are used as prophylactic aid for pulmonary emboli. The two general types of vena cava filters are permanent and optionally retrievable filters. Such filters are surgically placed in the inferior...
Anti-Inflammatory Therapeutics Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Anti-inflammatory therapeutics are mostly used to reduce inflammation. These drugs are types of analgesics that are used for reducing pain.Primarily, these therapeutics are used in disease conditions such as respiratory diseases, arthritis, inflammatory bowel diseases and multiple sclerosis. Anti-inflammatory therapeutics alleviate pain by counteracting the enzyme cyclooxygenase enzyme. These enzymes synthesize prostaglandins which is responsible for inflammation. These therapeutics reduce or prevent the secretion of prostaglandins and ultimately lower the severity of inflammation....
Erythropoietin Market - Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 - 2019
By - Transparency Market Research
Erythropoietin is a type of a glycoprotein produced by body that controls red blood cell production in the body and is produced in kidneys. Kidney cells responsible for production of erythropoietin are sensitive to oxygen levels in the blood. Low levels of oxygen in the blood triggers the production and release of erythropoietin. Erythropoietin stimulates the bone marrow to produce red blood cells that ultimately carries oxygen and maintains the oxygen levels in the body. Thenormal range of erythropoietin is 4 to 24 mU/ml.  Erythropoietin tests detects abnormal levels of...
