Granting of patent for an advanced cardiac biomarker is expected to transform the cardiac biomarker industry

The area of diagnosing and treatment of various cardiovascular diseases have undergone a paradigm change with the introduction of cardiac biomarker. By monitoring the various heart conditions biomarkers can potentially be used to detect and monitor a wide range of cardiac conditions in the critical care setting.
Singulex, Inc., recently announced that the Japanese Patent Office has granted a crucial patent which covers methods for detecting or monitoring cardiovascular conditions by the use of biomarkers Interleukin 17-A (IL-17A)  and cardiac Troponin-I (cTnI) in assays which have high sensitivity. 

Japanese Patent No. 5678045, entitled “Highly Sensitive Biomarker Panels”’ provides patent protection in Japan and it expires by June 2029. The patent is an important development in the industrial landscape of cardiac biomarker recent market dynamics as it impacts the Company's portfolio of 22 issued patents which are connected to its core SMCTM technology and biomarker assays. The company was previously granted United States Patent 8,450,069 covering methods for assessing cardiovascular health and damage by the use of biomarkers cTnI, IL-6, and IL-17A, along with one or more of  BNP & TNF-a, in platform-independent highly sensitive assays. This patent provides the company exclusive commercial rights in US to conduct these these assays through June 2030.
Moreover, as claimed by Japanese patent, one or more of Interleukin-6 (IL-6), Tumor Necrosis Factor-alpha (TNF-a), along with different forms of B-type natriuretic peptides are used in combination with cTnI and IL-17A as an effective biomarker.

Guido Baechler, President and Chief Executive Officer of Singulex., “We are committed to advancing the clinical understanding and use of high sensitivity biomarkers for the management of chronic diseases, and I am pleased with the continued progress of our clinical programs that support our CLIA-licensed laboratory business as well as our emerging in vitro Diagnostics business, all based upon our Single Molecule Counting technology," 

There are many prominent diagnostic companies which have recently introduced immunoassays for cardiac biomarker testing on an integrated platform, and the leading vendors are pro-active in increasing the efficacy of the systems so that the results are accurate and fast. Prominent market players include Abbott Laboratories, Roche Diagnostics, Alere Inc, Siemens Healthcare, Dickinson and Company and Becton, Bio-Rad Laboratories, and BioMerieux, Randox laboratories. 

Recently, Big Market Research has added a report titled “World Cardiac Biomarkers - Market Opportunities and Forecasts, 2014 -2020”. The report offers a comprehensive insights into the current and future market trends, market profile of leading market players along with detailed segmentation and forecast.

Radial tires find increased application in pneumatic tires industry

Tires are engineered structural combinations being the most important components of any modern automobile. Tires with advanced features meet safety criteria and performance expectations of the customer. The demand market for tires is led by the mass manufacture of tires in automobile industry along with their high adoption across industrial vehicles and passenger cars.

Pneumatic tires are made of rubber tires filled with air that is compressed. Other important raw materials can be materials such as steel wire, carbon black, fabric, polyester, nylon, fabric cord and rayon. Significant increase in automobile production globally along with rise in the demand of tires in the replacement market drive the growth momentum of the pneumatic tire market globally.

The global pneumatic tire market can be classified on the basis of type of sale, vehicle type, product type and geography. Based on product type, pneumatic tires market is segmented into cross-ply tires and radial tires. Based on the type of vehicle, the global pneumatic tires market is segmented into four-wheelers, aircraft, two-wheelers, industrial vehicles and agricultural vehicles, among many others; among these four wheelers tire segment contributes the highest revenue and is expected to remain so throughout the analysis period. Four wheelers are extensively used in industrial vehicles and passenger cars and have high adoption rate in transportation sector, thus offering a fillip to the growth of pneumatic tires industry globally.

The advent of radial tires has transformed the entire market of pneumatic tires as the radial tires segment witness high growth in the global pneumatic tires market. The segment accounted for around 68.8% of the total tire market when measured in terms of value in 2014, growing at a CAGR of 7.2% over the forecast period. Radials pneumatic tires are sometimes constructed with multiple layers of steel belts in the sidewall and tread which facilitates maneuvering across sharp objects which can damage the tires.

There are many report sin the market which offer a comprehensive overview of market dynamics in terms of key drivers and restraints, current market trends and future growth prospects along with market strategies of leading market players. A recent report by Big Market Research titled “World Pneumatic Tire - Market Opportunities and Forecasts, 2014 - 2020”. . As per the report, the global pneumatic tire market is forecast to garner a revenue of $287.5 billion by 2020, growing at 7.0% CAGR over the period of 2015–2020. 

Microwave Oven Brands Consider Innovation to Generate Profits

Increasing consumption volume of fast food is believed to spur growth in the microwave industry worldwide, over the next four to five years. Likewise, growing adoption of ready to eat or frozen food and emergence of kitchen appliances have offered great growth prospects for the microwave oven. Eyeing, the growth in customer spending on different newly invented kitchen gadgets, several microwave manufacturing companies are considering technological advancements. With smartphones and TV’s doing many things, buyers now opt for deliciously versatile make that saves both energy and cooking time. 

This year, the electronic giant Samsung was honoured with “International Design Excellence Award “for its innovative internal and external design. The “Hot Blast Combi Oven “from the house of Samsung comes with a sleek case and high – tech capability that powers the appliance. It’s not only the pretty face but the best technique to prepare your meal at home. The make blends the crispness of from your grill, succulence of a roasted food and crunch from frying technique. 

Since its inception almost 50 years ago microwave oven have be considered as the household staple and not much had changed since then. But it was only a matter of time that “Freescale Semiconductor” made an entry and assure that the leftovers can be as good the following day. This appliance from “RF cooking concept” is connected to IoT (or internet of things), so it can learn new recipes as well as adapt to a user’s cooking preferences. Another remarkable innovation was by “Berghof” which started the trend of digestion oven. Besides being user –friendly and cost effective the microwave oven was invented to suit routine tasks and select their designed program. Apart from those presented prominent market players such as LG Electronics, Illinois Tool Works Inc., Whirlpool Corporation and others too busy inventing. 

Recently, Big Market Research has added a report titled “World Microwave Oven Market - Opportunities and Forecasts, 2014 - 2020).” As per the report the microwave oven industry would observe a tremendous growth in the convention, grill and solo microwave ovens. Similarly, the microwave market would grow in regions including Asia Pacific, North America, Europe and LAMEA.
