Virology testing consist of diagnostic methods that help in early detection of the disease such as hepatitis, influenza, HIV, sexually transmitted disease, RCV, and other viral associated disease. Virology testing examines for detection of viral antigens, nucleic acids, and antibodies in the given sample in order to confirm the presence of particular viral infection. There are more than 100 viral diseases identified.
New advanced molecular based virology testing methods has been evolved in recent past such as immunoassay, nucleic acid based amplification testing methods (PCR based methods), mass spectrometry based detection methods and next generation genome sequencing methods, which are accurate, quick, and provides result for diversified viral infections.
Virology Testing Market- Market Dynamics
Virology testing market is projected to witness significant growth during forecast period with rising prevalence of virus originated diseases such as flu, hepatitis, AIDS, and STDs, Ebola, Influenza based viral infections, severe acute respiratory syndrome from coronavirus, hemorrhagic fever etc. across world. Early and fast diagnosis of virus infection is very essential to start treatment course.
According to the World Health Organization (WHO), January 2018 factsheet, all types of influenza in combination causes annual epidemics about 3 to 5 million cases with severe stage of illness, which results in the 290 000 to 650 000 deaths worldwide annually. Although rapid diagnostic tests are majorly used, PCR based techniques are being adopted for detection of influenza.
Furthermore, advances in anti-viral therapy in terms of detection techniques, medication, and vaccines are expected to drive the virology testing market growth. Worldwide efforts are going on to find novel vaccines and novel medication for treating viral resistant diseases. For instance, Pritelivir is investigational drug for herpes simplex virus (HSV) by AiCuris has proven to be very effective as compared to the current standard antiviral treatments for genital herpes in Phase II trials. Extensive research has been conducted worldwide for treatment of high epidemic viral disease such as Ebola, Dengue, and Malaria.
