These are the latest findings of Research and Markets, (Dublin, Ireland), a global market research company.

Portable devices with the potential to enable rapid detection of infectious diseases are revolutionizing patient care and driving the growing demand for decentralized testing settings. Additionally, increased R&D investments for the development of new products are expected to further drive the POC infectious disease diagnostics/testing market. For instance, an EU project research team has developed a new lab-on-a-disc' technology that aids in the diagnosis of various infectious diseases, including malaria. Through POC treatment, the technology enables faster diagnosis and allows precise administration of drugs, thereby driving its adoption.

HIV POC is estimated to account for the largest share of the POC infectious disease diagnostics/testing market due to the rising incidence rate of the disease. Companies are also adopting a quality management approach towards the introduction of novel tests for HIV diagnosis. TB and drug resistant TB are anticipated to witness lucrative demand over the coming years on account of their rising incidence rate, fueled further by the implementation of fully or partially integrated nano/microscale technologies for developing drug resistant TB diagnostic devices.

The demand for the development of inexpensive, rapid, simple, and accurate tests capable of simultaneously detecting multiple biomarkers is expected to contribute to the market growth. Moreover, advances in bio sensing technology for early detection with sensitivity are expected to drive revenue for the market players over the coming years.

Geographically, North America dominates the global market for POC infectious disease diagnostics/testing, due to adequate administration support, well-established healthcare framework, and extensive R&D upgradation in the region. However, the Asia Pacific market is expected to record the fastest growth over the forecast period due to the rising incidence and prevalence rates of infectious diseases in the region as well as favorable government support.

AI Tool Identifies Cancer Type and Changes in Lung Tumor
Researchers from the NYU School of Medicine have developed a new computer program that can analyze the images of patients' lung tumors, specify cancer types, and even identify altered genes driving abnormal cell growth. In their study, the researchers found that the artificial intelligence (AI), or "machine learning," program could distinguish -- with 97% accuracy -- between adenocarcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma, two lung cancer types that experienced pathologists at times struggle to parse without confirmatory tests. Additionally, the study found that the AI was also able to determine from analyzing the images whether the abnormal versions of six genes linked to lung cancer – including EGFR, KRAS and TP53 – were present in cells, with an accuracy ranging from 73% to 86%, depending upon the gene.
