Apoptosis Market

Date: 2016-05

Programmed self destruction of damaged or abnormal cells is termed as apoptosis. When cells in multicellular organism are no longer required, intracellular destrcuction of the cells begins. However, excessive and insufficient apoptotic processes have been known to be associated with several diseases. While excessive apoptosis is attributed to atrophy, an insuffienct apoptosis can result in an uncontrolled proliferation of unwanted cells and can result in cancer. There are several other diseases such as neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzeihmer’s, Huntinton’s and ALS and other autoimmune diseases that are stem from either a failure of apoptosis in elimination of harmful cells or unwanted activation of apoptosis that can result in destruction of important cells. Several drugs available in the market and those currently being research exhibit apoptosis modulating properties.

Rising number of cancer detected patients across the globe is one of the main drivers for the apoptosis market. Research and development efforts by companies as well as universities, sometimes in collaboration, is another factor augmenting the growth of this market. Lack of awareness is one factor that can potentially restrain the growth of this market.

An important section on patent analysis is included in this report that explores some of the most influential patents and potential indications for apoptosis modulation.Apoptosis Market
