This article was originally published in Clinica
Executive Summary The biomaterials landscape is flourishing, and the market is poised to dramatically impact the global healthcare markets over the next decade, as the seeds of technological innovation bear their fruits over the next 5-10 years by way of novel therapeutics. Recently, progress in medical and scientific research has been astounding; in particular, the elucidation of the human genome brings hope to the many sufferers of incapacitating diseases or terminal illnesses, and potentially catapults modern medicine to new stratospheric levels of miracle working through gene therapy. However, the application of knowledge from the genome project to eradicate disease and cure all ills is a long way off. Until that milestone arrives, biotherapeutic devices have a hugely important role in pushing back the frontiers of medical science, and supplying doctors and surgeons with a continuous supply of sophisticated, bioreactive and biocompatible tools with which to repair and rebuild the human body.
