DUBLIN, Dec 1, 2016 /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 The market value of drug delivery technologies and the anticancer drugs are difficult to separate. Cancer market estimates from 2015-2025 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 230 companies involved in developing innovative cancer therapies and methods of delivery are presented along with their 269 collaborations. The bibliography contains over 650 publications that are cited in the report.The report is supplemented with 66 tables and 12 figures. Several innovative methods of drug delivery are used in cancer. These include use of microparticles as carriers of anticancer agents. These may be injected into the arterial circulation and guided to the tumor by magnetic field for targeted drug delivery. Polyethylene glycol (PEG) technology has been used to overcome some of the barriers to anticancer drug delivery. Encapsulating anticancer drugs in liposomes enables targeted drug delivery to tumor tissues and prevents damage to the normal surrounding tissues. Monoclonal antibodies can be used for the delivery of anticancer payloads such as radionucleotides, toxins and chemotherapeutic agents to the tumors. 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. Key Topics Covered: Part I: Technologies & Markets Executive Summary 1.
