Market Analysis - Gynecologic Oncology 2017
Gynecologic cancers are categorized by uncontrolled growth and spread of abnormal cells. These cancers originate in the female reproductive organs such as uterus, cervix, ovaries, vagina , vulva and Breast cancer. Several factors are responsible for the occurrence of these cancers. It includes various classes of cancer originating genes, known as oncogenes, which promotes the abnormal growth of cells. The abnormal function of these genes regulates through aging, smoking and environmental influences. In adding, infertility, obesity, mutations, early start of menstruation and late start of menopause also causes gynecologic cancers.
Gynecologic cancers are also originated by some viruses. For instance, almost all cervical cancers and vaginal and vulva cancers are caused by human papillomavirus (HPV). These gynecologic cancers are treated by medication therapies, radiation therapy, surgeries and chemotherapy. Treatments of these cancers are depends upon the type and different stages of cancers.
The global gynecologic cancers market is categorized based on various types of cancers and their treatment therapies. It includes uterine, ovarian cancer, vaginal cancer, vulvar cancer and cervical cancer.
Uterine cancer is also known as endometrial cancer. It is the most common type of gynecologic cancer. Major risk factors of uterine cancer include the use of estrogen without progesterone, hypertension, diabetes, tamoxifen, obesity and later age of menopause. Obese women have higher circulating levels of estrogen, which increases their risk for uterine cancer. Cervical cancer is the second most common type of gynecologic cancer. Ovarian cancer is mainly divided into three types: germ cell cancer, epithelial ovarian cancer and stromal ovarian cancer. Vulvar and vaginal cancers are rarest forms of gynecologic cancer. It usually affects women with age group of 50-70 years.
In terms of geographic, North America and Europe dominates the global gynecologic cancers market. The U.S. represents the largest market for gynecologic cancers followed by Canada in North America. In Europe, France, Germany and the U.K. holds major share of gynecologic cancers market. However, Asia is expected to show high growth rates in the next five years in global gynecologic cancers market. This is due to increasing awareness among people about various types of gynecologic cancers in the region. Japan, China and India are expected to be the fastest growing gynecologic cancers markets in Asia.
However, patent expiry of various major drugs is key restraint for the global gynecologic cancers market. In addition, stringent regulatory hurdles also obstruct the growth of global gynecologic cancers market. Advancement in personalized medicines holds immense potential for the growth of global gynecologic cancers market. Increasing mergers and acquisitions between drugs manufacturing companies and government bodies is key trend of global gynecologic cancers market.
Breast cancers can start from different parts of the breast. Most breast cancers begin in the ducts that carry milk. A small number of cancers start in other tissues in the breast. These cancers are called sarcomas and lymphomas and are not really thought of as breast cancers. If cancer cells have spread to your lymph nodes, there is a higher chance that the cells could have spread (metastasized) to other sites in your body. The more lymph nodes with breast cancer cells, the more likely it is that the cancer may be found in other organs as well. Because of this, finding cancer in one or more lymph nodes often affects your treatment plan. Usually, surgery to remove one or more lymph nodes will be needed to know whether the cancer has spread there.Still, not all women with cancer cells in their lymph nodes develop metastases, and some women can have no cancer cells in their lymph nodes and later develop metastases.
Scope and Importance of Gynecologic Oncology Research
Ovarian cancer presents a very varied prognosis depending on age: whilst 70% of the group between 15 and 44 years survives this form of cancer, this is the case for only 19% of those over 74 years-old.
Cervical cancer is the third most commonly diagnosed cancer and the fourth leading cause of cancer death in females’ worldwide, accounting for 9% (529,800) of the total new cancer cases and 8% (275,100) of the total cancer deaths among females. More than 85% of these cases and deaths occur in developing countries.
Tumor biology early detection, and treatment of ovarian cancer in older women as compared to younger women suffering with this malignancy. Effort was devoted to the type of problems met in conducting the analyses and, where data were inadequate, recommending research guidelines or approaches.
The center are at the forefront of research in the early discovery of ovarian cancer and uterine cancer , which is involved in developing blood tests to precisely determine the absence or presence of early stage ovarian cancer before it reveals, as well as on going translational research programs for all Gynecologic Cancers. Physicians are also involved in leading-edge programs in the prevention of cervical cancer through regular screenings and the identification of precancerous cervical lesions associated with papilloma virus infections.
Organized screening procedures can support to detect Gynecologic Cancer, including cervical cancer, uterine cancer, and ovarian cancer, early.
A pap smear can identify cervical and uterine cancers. It is suggested to begin analysis every three years early at age 21.
A pelvic exam images the rectum, vagina, cervix, fallopian tubes, uterus, ovaries, and Pelvic tests should be done annually, beginning at 21 and can help detect irregularities of the female reproductive system.
An endometrial tissue sample checks for abnormal cells or signs of uterine cancer which can be done for women with a high risk for endometrial cancer due to an inborn susceptibility or when there are symptoms that need to be evaluated.
Why it’s in Chicago, USA.
Gynecologic Cancer confers a large burden among women in the United States. Several evidence-based interventions are available to reduce the incidence, morbidity, and mortality from these cancers. The National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (NCCCP) is uniquely positioned to implement these interventions in the US population. Every woman is at risk for developing a Gynecologic Cancer & Breast Cancer. It is estimated that there will be about 91,000 new cases diagnosed and approximately 28,000 deaths from Gynecologic Cancers in the United States during 2014.Post-menopausal women aged 45–70 years have the highest risk of developing uterine cancer. It is more common in Caucasian women than in other populations. Women living in North America or Europe develop uterine cancer more often than those living in other parts of the world. Women in higher income groups also tend to be affected more often than women in lower income groups.
