Global Embolization in Interventional Oncology Market US$ 33.7 Billion by 2021

The global embolization in interventional oncology market is estimated to reach nearly US$ 33.7 Billion in 2021, expanding at a CAGR of 5.4% from 2017 to 2021.

Embolization is a minimally invasive therapy to block a blood vessel. It is commonly used to stop bleeding as well as to stop blood flow to a tumor in order to shrink it or in preparation for removal. Embolization is a procedure that injects substances to try to block or reduce the blood flow to cancer cells. It is an option for some patients with tumors that cannot be removed by surgery, and where tumors are too large to be treated with ablation.

Embolization in Interventional Oncology Market

Embolization procedures are used for anti-tumor therapy for tumors in liver (HCC), kidneys (renal carcinoma, lungs or bones), etc. Bland embolisation or Transarterial embolisation (TAE) and transarterial chemoembolization (TACE) have become established treatments for unresectable, intermediate-stage HCC around the world. The rising incidence of HCC in Western countries appears to correlate with the increasing prevalence of hepatitis C virus (HCV).

Bland embolization includes delivery of sub-millimeter microparticles through a catheter inserted in the groin and advanced into the liver under X-ray guidance to get access into the tumor vasculature. Radioembolization technique combines embolization with radiation therapy and is sometimes known as Selective internal radiation therapy (SIRT) or trans-arterial radioembolization.  It includes microspheres loaded with a radioactive isotope (Yttrium-90) are injected into the blood vessels feeding a tumor and deliver a lethal dose of radiation into the vessels feeding the tumor thereby causing cell death.

Chemoembolization or trans-arterial chemoembolization (or TACE) combines embolization with chemotherapy. TACE includes delivery of intra-arterial chemotherapy to the liver through a catheter in combination with embolic material to produce ischemia. Drug eluting bead chemoembolization (DEB-TACE) includes delivery of microparticles that are themselves loaded with the chemotherapy agent – doxorubicin – and allow for prolonged elution into the tumor microvessels. In Asia Pacific, TACE with a lipiodol-chemotherapeutic agent suspension and gelatin sponge (GS) particles, are being widely promoted. There is a huge demand in this region for conventional TACE (cTACE). On the other hand, TACE procedures that use drug-eluting beads (a doxorubicinadsorbing type of DEB called DEBDOX, DEB-TACE), are mainly promoted in Europe and the United States.
