https://www.factmr.com - Cancer accounts for 8.3 million deaths annually. Over the next two decades, 7 out of 10 patients are likely to suffer from this deadly disease. The increasing prevalence of cancer has facilitated extensive research in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. Governments are increasingly funding clinical trials to assist companies in developing effective diagnostics and treatment for cancer. In April 2016, the National Cancer Institute (NCI) received a federal grant of US$ 5.2 Bn to aid it in its research. Aggressive funding initiatives by governments on cancer diagnostics are boosting the growth of the cancer biomarkers market.
