Global Antibiotics Market 2014-2018

Antibacterial drugs are chemical compounds used to kill or inhibit the growth of bacteria. The term "antibiotic" is often used synonymously with antibacterial; however, the term "antibiotic" was originally coined to refer to the antibacterial compounds of microbial origin. Antibacterial acts via various mechanisms such as the inhibition of cell wall synthesis, the inhibition of nucleic acid synthesis, the disruption of the cell membrane, and the inhibition of protein synthesis. It can be bacteriostatic or bactericidal in nature. Antibiotics are medicines that are used to treat infections caused by bacteria (e.g., respiratory tract infections). Antibiotics work against microorganisms such as bacteria, fungi, and parasites but are not effective against viruses. Antibiotics either block vital......

Global Advanced Wound Care Market 2014-2018

A wound is described as a disruption in the integrity of the skin, mucous membrane, or organ tissue. Wounds are caused by mechanical, chemical, thermal, and radiogenic trauma. Wound also occurs because of underlying pathologies caused by diseases such as diabetes, immunological diseases, dermatological diseases, and other chronic diseases. Wounds are of two major types: acute and chronic; acute wounds heal with reparative process within days. On the other hand, chronic wounds fail to complete the reparative process and take more time to heal. Certain chronic wounds do not heal in cases such as type-2 diabetes (these wounds can lead to amputation), neuropathic ulcers, venous stasis ulcers, and arterial insufficiency ulcers. Prevention measures need to be taken to overcome chronic wounds in ......

Global Animal Vaccines Market 2014-2018

Animal vaccines are biological preparations used to improve the immunity of animals. Animal vaccines are generally prepared from weakened or dead microbes that can cause a particular disease when in their healthy state. Some of the animal vaccines are also formulated using a part of a microbe's body such as protein subunits or toxic components. These components act as stimulating agents that trigger the immune system in an animal body. This then prepares the necessary antibodies to act against the microbes present in the body or to destroy any that it encounters in the future. Based on their applications, animal vaccines are predominantly categorized into livestock vaccines, companion vaccines, and aquaculture vaccines. TechNavio's analysts forecast the Global Animal Vaccines market to ......
