Cardiovascular system along with lymphatic system form the circulatory system in a human body. Cardiovascular system consists of heart, veins, arteries and blood and it helps in transportation of oxygen, hormones and other nutrients to and from body cells. Blood circulation also helps in stabilizing temperature and pH to maintain homeostasis.
Cardiovascular diseases (CVD), which can be either inherited or acquired, are primarily related to heart and blood vessels. Some common cardiovascular diseases include Ischemic heart disease, atherosclerosis, thrombosis, hypertension, coronary artery disease, peripheral artery disease, angina and heart failure. Generally, medications that help to balance blood flow either by increasing oxygen supply to the heart or by enhancing its pumping capacity are used for treatment of CVD.
The lymphatic system, also a vital part of immune system, is a collection of lymph nodes, thymus, bone marrow, spleen and lymphatic vessels. Lymphatic vessels carry lymph fluid containing white blood cells, which are an important part of human body’s defense mechanism. Some major lymphatic diseases are lymphadenopathy, lymphedema, lymphoma and Leukemia.
Treatment of lymphatic diseases depend on the cause. For example, antibiotics or antivirals are used in case of infections, physical therapy can treat lymphedema while lymphatic cancers are treated by surgery, radiotherapy or chemotherapy.
Continuous technological advancements have resulted in development of various cell therapies and drug delivery methods such as drug-eluting stents and balloons or vascular grafts. Furthermore, increasing incidence of population suffering from cardiovascular diseases, rising number of obese and diabetes patients and presence of a higher number of innovative drugs under clinical studies are the key market drivers. However, patent expiration, stringent regulations and drugs related side-effects can prove to be some restraints.
