Theranostics Market – Increasing Adoption of Companion Diagnostics is Expected to Support Market Growth


Theranostics involves combination of targeted diagnostic tests with targeted therapy. It is also known as companion diagnostics, integrated medicine, Dx/Rx partnering, and pharmacodiagnostics. Implementation of theranostics into the patient care plan (in case of selected diseases for which diagnostic tests are available along with respective therapy) may turn into personalized therapy, which could further improve medical outcomes.

Theranostics include use of specific diagnostic test, which shows a particular molecular target on a tumor or any other disease causing agent. Any disease pathophysiology involves specific biological pathways, which are targeted with the help of diagnostic tests. Diagnostic images of the particular molecule then identifies presence of the specific mutation or receptors (in case of cancer), which can be targeted with the help of therapeutic agents. This approach avoids trial and error treatment and could be used to offer patient specific treatment at the right time. Accurate dose calibration and precisely targeted approach could highly be useful in management of chronic diseases such as cancer.
