Theranostics Market Research Report 2020-2026 | Global Industry Analysis, Size Estimation, Company Share, Latest Technological Innovations, Regional Data

Theranostics is an advanced field of medicine that involves a combination of targeted diagnostic tests with targeted therapy. It is also known as companion diagnostics, integrated medicine, Dx/Rx partnering, and pharmacodiagnostics. The theranostic utilizes nanoscience to unite diagnostic and therapeutic application in order to create a single agent, for diagnosis, drug delivery, and monitoring treatment response. Moreover, this technique utilizes specific biological pathways in the human body for obtaining diagnostic images and also deliver a therapeutic dose.

Theranostics include the use of specific diagnostic tests, which shows a particular molecular target on a tumor or any other disease-causing agent. Any disease pathophysiology involves specific biological pathways, which are targeted with the help of diagnostic tests. Diagnostic images of the particular molecule then identifies the presence of the specific mutation or receptors (in case of cancer), which can be targeted with the help of therapeutic agents. This approach avoids trial and error treatment and could be used to offer patient-specific treatment at the right time. Accurate dose calibration and precisely targeted approach could highly be useful in the management of chronic diseases such as cancer.

For instance, neuroendocrine tumors can be diagnosed to assess the extent of disease via PET-CT (Positron Emission Tomography – Computer Tomography) using Ga-68 DOTATOC (a radioactive positron emitter). Ga-68 targets somatostatin receptor (SSTR2) on the tumor cell membrane, and is injected through vein, which travels and binds to the SSTR2 indication the presence of a tumor on PET scan. Furthermore, Ga-68 can be replaced by a therapeutic agent to target the tumor.

Global Theranostics Market Drivers:-

Rising production of novel companion diagnostic tests to be used with existing treatment option is projected to boost the market growth. Moreover, leading manufacturers are engaged in the introduction of novel companion diagnostic tests in the market. For instance, Illumina, Inc. announced the launch of the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) approved extended RAS panel for identification of patients eligible for treatment of metastatic colorectal cancer with Vectibix (panitumumab) in 2017.

Growing adoption of companion diagnostic tests by laboratories is further projected to foster global theranostics market growth over the forecast period. BloodCenter of Wisconsin’s Diagnostic Laboratories started offering Abbott RealTime IDH1 assay for patients with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in July 2018. Moreover, Cancer Genetics, Inc. started offering FDA approved companion diagnostic Thermo Fisher Scientific’s Oncomine Dx Target – the first Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS)-based Companion Diagnostic (CDx) test in 2017. Laboratory Corporation of America Holdings launched OmniSeq Advance in partnership with OmniSeq for tumor cancers in June 2018.

The rising number of partnerships and collaborations by leading players to produce innovative companion diagnostics is expected to foster global theranostics market growth over the forecast period. For instance, Foundation Medicine, Inc. and Pfizer, Inc. entered into a partnership for development, regulatory support, and commercialization of companion diagnostics (CDx) in January 2018. Moreover, Qiagen, Inc. and Freenome partnered in June 2018, to accelerate the development and commercialization of Next-Generation Sequencing (NGS) tests to enable precision medicine in cancer treatment.

Pierre Fabre and Roche have been working on the development of a robust prototype immunohistochemistry assay as a future companion diagnostic test for W0101 (the drug candidate which they are developing together) and extended this collaboration in May 2018. Abbott Laboratories, Inc. collaborated with Celgene Corporation, and Agios Pharmaceuticals, to develop diagnostic tests on Abbott’s m2000 RealTime system that identifies certain genomic mutations associated with acute myeloid leukemia (AML) in 2016. These factors are expected to support global theranostics market growth over the forecast period.
