DUBLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Global Chiral Chromatography Column Market 2017-2021" report to their offering.
The analysts forecast the global chiral chromatography column market to grow at a CAGR of 5.48% during the period 2017-2021.
The report, Global Chiral Chromatography Column Market 2017-2021, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts. The report covers the market landscape and its growth prospects over the coming years. The report also includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.
According to the report, one driver in market is chromatography tests for drug approvals. Separation of chiral compounds has increasing importance in the pharmaceutical industry. The chirality of molecules causes a biological system to exhibit different responses to each enantiomer in a drug. The body is selective in chiral compounds. It interacts with racemate drug differently and metabolizes each enantiomer into different end products.
Thus, while one enantiomer may produce desired therapeutic effect, another may be inactive or harmful. The enantiomers in a racemate drug may have differences in biological activities such as pharmacology, toxicology, and metabolism. For instance, Thalidomide prescribed as a sedative for pregnant women contains chiral carbon, which is a racemic mixture of (+) (R)- thalidomide and (-) (S)- thalidomide. It has been found that the enantiomer (-) (S)- thalidomide present in thalidomide has an adverse effect on newly born babies causing missing or abnormal arms, legs, or feet.
