Cuban Biopharmaceuticals, Diagnostics and Medical Care Find Growing Interest from U.S. and International Healthcare Sectors

Remarkably, Cuba, despite near isolation from U.S. medical research, has managed notable advances in medical technology from its own industry. Cuban development of medical products such as cancer therapeutics , in vitro diagnostic (IVD) platforms and vaccines has occurred in the vacuum of U.S.-pioneered medical advances, but often manage only limited visibility internationally due to difficulties in investment. Reconciliation between the United States and Cuba has the potential to improve the di...

The Continual Search for Biomarkers - Cancer, Cardiovascular, Immunology, Infectious Diseases and Neurological Diseases

Biomarkers are a highly dynamic space within life science characterized by individual progression through discovery; validation; initial standardized applications in preclinical studies and clinical trials; and incorporation into clinically approved in vitro diagnostic (IVD) assays. In addition to vertical movement, individual biomarkers can be viewed in a horizontal manner across the spectrum of applicable diseases. This spectrum of biomarker usage is encompassed in Kalorama Information’s The G...
