Cardiovascular diseases claim 17.7 million lives annually, and account for 31% of all global deaths. Cardiovascular diseases can broadly be divided into the following types: i) hypertensive heart diseases, ii) coronary heart diseases, iii) inflammatory heart disease, iv) rheumatic heart diseases, v) stroke and vi) other cardiovascular diseases.
In the December issue of the “Hot Topics in Tech” newsletter series, we take a glance at how mobile devices have transformed healthcare and became a crucial component in the medical field.
MaxVal’s E-Cigarettes report is now available through Patent LiveScape™, an analysis and reporting service that provides clients with interactive reports which extract actionable and predictive information. By leveraging data sciences best practices, MaxVal has constructed an interactive report that melds different yet related data sources into a comprehensive landscape, allowing the reader to dynamically explore relationships.
In this issue of the "Hot Topics in Tech" series, we provide a brief overview of the patent filing activity around implantable non-energy based devices for hypertension treatment and management. We have also presented the top technologies within this domain, leading assignees, and market information.
The USPTO recently announced its Relevant Prior Art (RPA) Initiative, seeking to leverage electronic resources to improve an examiner’s access to relevant information from applicant’s other related applications. These resources may include related U.S. applications, international applications under the PCT, and counterpart foreign applications by the same applicant.
Following the publication of our recent Technology Landscape study on CRISPR-Cas9, MaxVal announces the latest advanced publication on the genome editing system, CRISPR, which has become an extremely important tool in medical research. The demonstration of the reprogrammable nature of Cas9 served as a catalyst to widespread adoption of CRISPR systems in biomedical and agricultural research. The potential benefits of CRISPR gene editing in several challenging diseases such as Alzheimer’s, cancer, and numerous autoimmune diseases are being explored by researchers.
This article provides a brief overview of the role of the autonomous nervous system in managing hypertension and describes various techniques related to neurostimulation. Patents revealing various energy-based techniques for neurostimulation, and devices related thereto which are available in the market are also presented.
This issue covers cardiovascular diseases and discloses the technological categories and products related to the use of renal denervation approach for managing hypertension. It also talks about the three main categories of Artificial Intelligence namely Artificial Narrow Intelligence (ANI), Artificial General Intelligence (AGI), and Artificial Super Intelligence (ASI). They influence human life in the form of automated cars, virtual assistants, image recognition software, robotics, games, life science and so on. Read more on this report.
In this issue, we have covered a couple of hot topics that are currently trending in the biotech and blockchain technology industries. We have highlighted Illumina’s Q2 results and provided some
insights about the company alongwith a quick run-through of the firm's recent collaborations in China. Illumina reported a revenue of $830 million in Q2 which is a 25% increase compared to $662 million in the same quarter of 2017. Illumina’s biggest advantage over its competitors lies in its technology diversification.
In this issue, we have covered a couple of hot topics that are currently trending in the biotech and cloud-tech industries. We have talked about the FDA's approval of tisagenlecleucel (KYMRIAH, Novartis Pharmaceuticals Corp.), a CD19-directed genetically modified autologous T-cell immunotherapy, to include treatment of patients with relapsed or refractory large B-cell lymphoma. Tisagenlecleucel is the only CAR T-cell therapy to receive FDA approval for two distinct indications. The report includes a chart of major commercial players in the CAR T-cell space and a Year-on-Year trend on the number of patents and patent applications from 2012 to 2018.
