HIV Diagnostics Market

Posted by ahila on April 24th, 2018

Acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) is a retroviral infectious disease caused by human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). HIV attacks the body immune system ideally CD4 cells (T cells), which helps the immune system to fight infections. HIV spreads through body fluids i.e. blood donation and imparting needles to somebody who is HIV infected, and sexual interactions. If HIV is not treated the opportunistic infections like tuberculosis or cancer take advantage of very weak immune system and causes AIDS. The HIV diagnosis can be done by viral load test, saliva test, and blood test. Most accurate test results can obtained by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA) test initial stages and western blot method on later stages. Currently, there was no effective cure exists for HIV, but with proper medical care, it can be controlled.

HIV diagnostics market is driven by global increase in prevalence of HIV/AIDS, rise in number of blood transfusions and blood donations, benefits of point-of-care instruments & kits in which patients can be diagnosed even outside the laboratory setting, and increasing government initiatives. In addition, technological advancements in disease diagnostic tests, improvement and commercialization of novel, regulatory approved point of care and rapid CD4, p24 antigen and EID tests are expected to boost the HIV diagnostics market over the forecast period. However, lack of awareness in many undeveloped regions, stringent government regulations and unfavourable reimbursement policies would limit the growth of the market.
