Legionella Testing Market – Global Industry Analysis and Forecast till 2020

Legionella Testing

The Legionella is a rod shaped and gram-negative bacteria that can cause pneumonia (Legionnaires disease) or flu like illness (Pontiac fever). The disease caused by Legionella bacteria is termed as Legionellosis. A Legionella bacterium is a fastidious microorganism and it require special growth requirements for its survival, which include Iron presence, temperature above 68° F, L cysteine and biofilm. However, it can survive at minimal dissolved oxygen levels unlike other microorganisms and is resistant to chlorine disinfection. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately about 40 different species of Legionella are present and 18 of those are infectious. Among all these species, Legionella pneumophilia bacterium can causes most of the diseases. Initially patients infected show symptoms such as headache, muscle pain, chills and high fever. Later, with the disease progression the patients show symptoms of shortness of breath, chest pain, nausea, vomiting, severe cough and mental changes. The infections caused by Legionella bacterium are categorized in to four types like subclinical infection (infection with no disease), pneumonia (Legionnaires’ disease), extra pulmonary disease and non-pneumonic disease (Pontiac fever).

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it has been reported that around 8,000 to 18,000 people are suffering with Legionnaires disease in the United States each year. Among these, in adults, approximately 2 to 15% of patients with community-acquired pneumonia requiring hospitalization and Legionellosis is considered to be the second most common cause of pneumonia that require Intensive Care Unit (ICU) admission. The mortality rate associated with Legionella infection patients is about 5 to 80% and it depends on certain risk factors. These risk factors are associated with the high mortality rate include age, belated antimicrobial therapy for infection and predisposing underlying conditions such as diabetes mellitus, chronic lung disease and immunodeficiency. For the patients with Legionella disease, effective antimicrobial therapy is considered as the standard initial empirical treatment therapy for community-acquired pneumonia (CAP) and for specific patients with nosocomial pneumonia.

Macrolides, quinolones, ketolides, tetracyclines and rifampin are various antibiotics used for the treatment of Legionella infection. Among these, Azithromycin is the drug of choice for treating this infection in children and for adults, certain flouroquinolones like levofloxacin and moxifloxacin are considered as the most efficient drugs.

Small Bone and Joint Orthopedic Devices Market – Global Industry Analysis and Forecast 2014 – 2020

Bones form the rigid framework of the human body that allows for movement for activities and protection of the internal organs from external physical damage. The movement among these bones and joints are highly complex and require the assistance of various other tissues including tendons, ligaments and associated muscles. Orthopedic surgeons replace a large number of large bones easily and readily as the traditional practice has been in existence since ancient times. However joints form a section of bone junction that observes a large amount of physical excursion along with copious amount of wear and tear. Besides gradual wear and tear, fractures calls for a large amount orthopedic implants that assist in bone healing. Minute joint bone healing implants are placed in highly complex fractures to speed up the healing process in a patient. Joint replacement surgeries (arthroplasty) are not novel concepts; however joints include miniature parts and facets that require high tensile and sheer strength, which in turn asks for a higher quality material. Metals were used earlier as they are generally easily malleable and can sustain high sheer strain/stress.

These along with their anti corrosive properties have lead to a huge market for joint parts. However the disadvantage of metal parts is their increased weight, the heavy parts translates to restricted movements and difficulty in maintaining co ordination. Ceramic materials and carbon fiber implants have reduced the disadvantages of heavy metal alloys, but on the other hand increased the cost of manufacture. Companies nowadays offer both the categories as of now to patients requiring joint replacement or small bone support. Army men, children with deformities and sports persons account for the largest consumer segment in joint and small bone orthopedic support market. Geriatric patients form the other market for joint and hip replacement surgeries in the world. Osteoporosis, worn out joints, decreased bone and overall healing rate and increased injury due to lack of coordination among the elderly, are the major reason for fractures and consequent orthopedic surgery.

In the U.S itself more than 800 thousand joint and hip replacement surgeries were conducted as of 2004, according to a research survey conducted by the integrated healthcare association (IHA). According to the 2012 American Association of Orthopedic Surgeons census, arthroscopy forms the largest practice among orthopedic surgeons at 38% of the total practices. This is followed by the adult knee replacement at 37%, sports medicine at 36% and total joint replacement at 17%. In the U.S a majority of the practitioners belong to the private practice setting, followed y the academic and military services. In the military itself, a majority of practitioners are orthopedic surgeons and general practitioners. Globally orthopedic services form a large fraction of medical practice, however the number of arthroscopy specialists vary from region to region depending upon practice. European and developed countries in the world almost follow a similar pattern as the U.S. However in developing countries the majority of the joint and small bone fracture consumer market belongs to the geriatric population, childhood bone deformities are too expensive procedures and are performed among the few high income sections of the societies. A majority of the orthopedic services in this region therefore specifically target the elderly population and provide long term care for this segment.

Some companies manufacturing small bone and joint orthopedic devices include: Aesculap USA (division of B Braun Melsungen AG), Acumed LLC, Smith & Nephew PLC, Zimmer Holdings Inc., Tornier Inc., Wright Medical Group Inc., Covidien PLC, Stryker Corporation, Biomet Inc., etc to name a few.
