Companion diagnostics have come a long way in assisting pharmacists select the best mode of treatment for conditions that are critical in nature. Through the advancement in technology which came about serving people in a customized manner, avenues opened for formulating highly critical operational procedures. These procedures include activities like selecting the best medicines in colorectal breast cancer treatment. Companion diagnostics does its trick by application of immunohistochemistry principles. It estimates the level of immunity a patient’s body can tolerate and works towards delivering the right dosage of medicine. Once the tolerability is determined, a process called the polymerase chain reaction is invoked. This process splits the patients DNA stands into two, each of which later grows a sub strand of their own. Gene sequencing allows for identifying leftover individual bits of each DNA strand and ascertains a value to it by using molecular biology techniques. This above mentioned sequential process helps in precise delivery of medication where normal consultation fails. This advantage of companion diagnostics over traditional diagnostics opened up a great market for firms operating in precession medicine industry.
According to the research by Cancer Research Institute of UK, there are 17 million cases of cancer worldwide as of 2018 and the number is increasing significantly as we are proceeding into the future. This brings about a great scope for players in the companion diagnostics market.
