Report Says Skin-Ulcer Treatment Market to See New Growth

August 24, 2007 - The market for skin ulcer treatments is expected to see solid growth over the next four years due to demographic shifts and new treatments such as negative wound pressure therapy, sending the market to $6.2 billion in 2011, according to the third edition of "Wound Care Markets: Volume I: Skin Ulcers," a new report by New York-based Kalorama Information.
The report states overall steady growth in the worldwide skin ulcer treatment market will likely come from new therapies that result in decreasing healing times and subsequent cost savings; a growing focus on special populations such as diabetics and the obese; the increasing elderly population; availability of new therapeutic techniques; and the recent focus on wound care products and prevention.
Mature skin treatment products such as anti-infectives, skin ulcer management, and pressure relief devices will continue to generate the majority of sales, but advancements in biotechnology, biomaterials, and tissue engineering are expected to drive growth during the forecast period. Additionally, negative pressure wound therapy — the use of vacuum pressure within a foam sponge and adhesive wrap which stimulates blood flow and promotes faster healing — is a segment expected to boost market sales with another dose of significant growth, estimated at 11.6 percent.
"Developments in treatments of skin ulcers have made tremendous strides in the last decade," said Mary Anne Crandall, author of the report. "New developments are providing the health care arena of today with some truly sophisticated, highly effective skin ulcer treatments. Revolutionary advances using tissue engineering, growth factors, animal-fetal-cell research, stem-cell research, and gene therapy may offer new hope to patients who experience acute and chronic skin ulcers."
"Wound Care Markets: Volume I: Skin Ulcers" covers the world wound care market for skin ulcers in the anti-infectives, skin ulcer management, moist dressings, negative pressure wound therapy, biological dressings, pressure relief, and miscellaneous treatments product segments. The report analyzes products in development and on the market, leading competitors, and current issues and trends.

Example images for a control participant , a deletion carrier, and a duplication carrier. In the sagittal image of the deletion carrier, the thick corpus callosum, dens and craniocervical abnormality, and cerebellar ectopia are shown. For the duplication carrier, the sagittal image shows the thin corpus callosum and the axial image shows the increased ventricle size and decreased white matter volume.
