COVID-19 Impact on the Global Antigen Skin Test Market
The global COVID-19 pandemic is caused due to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The serious issue among COVID-19 patients is increasing cases of secondary infection. When the SARS-CoV-2 risk increases, the body's immune function decreases, and the probability of fungal infection increases. The increasing cases of fungal infection merge the demand for antigen skin test.
Increasing chronic allergic skin disorders
Chronic allergic skin disorders are the inflammatory conditions in which genetic and environmental factors play significant roles. The most common chronic allergic skin disorder includes chronic idiopathic urticaria (CIU) and atopic dermatitis (AD, which may be caused due to multiple food and aeroallergens. However, the skin prick tests (SPTs) are cost-effective method to diagnose type I hypersensitivity. The Skin prick testing (SPT) is a sensitive tool to detect allergic disorders. The antigen combines with immunoglobulin E (IgE) antibodies fixed to mast cells, chemical mediators which are released from mast cells & results in formation of wheel within 5 minutes. resulting in formation of a wheal.
Increasing public health concerns among population.
Tuberculosis is major public health concern and significant cause of morbidity and mortality globally, especially in developing countries. It is bacterial infection caused by bacterium ‘Mycobacterium tuberculosis’. The rising prevalence of tuberculosis have been declining due to increasing health awareness among population, however, the multidrug-resistant is rising steadily. The rising incidences are India, China, Indonesia, Pakistan, Nigeria, and South Africa. The increasing health concerns among population, rise the demand for antigen skin test globally.
Increasing demand for antigen skin test
The rising prevalence of fungal, bacterial, and parasitic infection emerge the demand for antigen skin test. TB skin test or Mantoux tuberculin skin test (TST), is commonly used to diagnose tuberculosis. The test is performed by injecting a small amount of fluid known as tuberculin into the skin on the lower part of the arm. However, the person must return within 48 to 72 hours to detect the reaction on the arm. The FDA approved purified protein derivative (PPD) tuberculin antigens, which are available in the United States, however, outside the US, some other tuberculin antigens such as RT 23 formulation may be used. Testing for fungal antigen is available to diagnosis fungal infections, various antigen-based tests such as Candida test, trichophyton are available to detect infection.
