DUBLIN, Dec. 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/3prf9w/cardiac_marker) has announced the addition of the "Global Cardiac Marker Diagnostic Testing Market Report" report to their offering.
Cardiac marker diagnostic testing measures the concentration of certain proteins, i.e., biomarkers, which indicate the presence or severity of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Among the most prevalent CVDs are sudden cardiac arrest (SCA), acute myocardial infarction (AMI), congestive heart failure (CHF) and atherosclerosis. Every year, an estimated 17 million people worldwide die from a CVD.
This report describes the specific market segment of the in vitro diagnostics (IVD) market devoted to cardiac marker testing, including size; growth; industry trends; product development and investment; and clinical measurement devices, reagents and supplies. Highly-attractive cardiac marker areas of growth covered in this review include: the cardiac rapid assay market, troponins, Creatine kinase-myocardial band (CK-MB) and brain natriuretic peptide (BNP) testing. Also examined are heart failure, myoglobin, homocysteine (Hcy), C-reactive protein (CRP), pulmonary embolism (PE) (D-dimer test), low-density and high-density lipoproteins (LDL and HDL), stroke, cardiac enzymes, albumin, cardiac markers used in clinical decisions, cardiac markers in renal failure, cardiac panels and point of care (POC) cardiac markers.
This study also provides a thorough analysis of the companies known to be marketing, manufacturing or developing cardiac marker products in the U.S. and worldwide, as well as detailed tables, charts and figures covering the U.S., Europe and Asia markets.
