Biopsy involves extracting a sample of tissue and testing it for the presence of diseases especially cancer. Traditional tissue biopsy is a painful technique and also has a high rate of false results. Moreover, the technique is costly, time consuming and not applicable for extracting samples such as those close to vital organs such as heart. Liquid biopsy overcomes these problems of tissue biopsy by using biomarkers present in samples such as blood, urine etc. and thus is a comparatively non-invasive technique. Liquid biopsy also provides greater information about the sample which is real time. The real time data can be used for monitoring and thereby determining the treatment for diseases such as cancer. The greater sensitivity of tissue biopsy coupled with the development of sophisticated detectors with extremely low detection rates have enabled the early detection of diseases which is the holy grail of cancer.
Other market drivers for the liquid biopsy market are rising rates of cancer, growing investment in research and development, collaborations between companies and public organizations, rise in geriatric population, rising expenditure on health etc. The factors which are inhibiting the growth of the market includes the prohibitive costs associated with liquid biopsy and the differential awareness and availability between developing and the developed world. However, not all cancer patients benefit from early detection as some cancer types such as brain cancer and prostate cancer may lie dormant for many years. Further liquid biopsy is not all non-invasive as can be seen in case of using spinal fluid as sample.
Also the technique is not applicable to all types of cancer as some cancers such as brain cancer and prostate cancer may lie dormant for many years, and thus are either undetectable or detected very late which robs liquid biopsy of its advantages. Further liquid biopsy is not all non-invasive as can be seen in case of using spinal fluid as sample.
