How is Rising Prevalence of Cancer Driving Demand for Radiation Dermatitis Treatment?

According to the International Agency for Cancer Research (IARC), the number of new cancer cases rose to 19.3 million, with 10 million deaths during the year. By 2040, this number shall surpass 29 million, while deaths will increase to more than 16 million. Consequently, patients are seeking radiation treatment as it is highly effective in eradicating some of the worst cancers.

While radiation therapy accounts for 40% of all cancer cures globally, studies have indicated that patients receiving them are at heightened risk of suffering from radiation burns which induce numerous skin problems. Hence, uptake of radiation dermatitis dressings and treatment products is inclining across key regions.

What Prospects are in Store for Biocompatible & Biodegradable Nanomaterials?

Manufacturers are bolstering production capacities in wound dressings which are highly elastic and flexible. However, it has been found that these dressings in some cases may damage fragile skin and may not prevent maceration.

This has created a need for new biocompatible and biodegradable nanomaterials that help in regulating all phases of wound healing. Companies in the radiation dermatitis treatment market are increasing their R&D capabilities to develop dressings that incorporate antibacterial and self-healing properties.

The incidence is especially high across the metro cities, account for over 1/4th of all female cancers. Hence, patients are seeking advanced radiation based treatment.

Overall incidence of grade 1-2 acute erythematous reactions resulting from radiation based treatment is 80-90%, while moist desquamation is observed in around 10-15% of the patients. Some studies have reported increased grade 1-2 late fibrosis in patients undergoing breast conservation surgery and hypo fractionated radiotherapy.

Will China Be a Lucrative Market for Radiation Dermatitis Treatment?
