Global Radiodermatitis Market – Impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic
The World Health Organization (WHO) designated the illness caused by the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2), which first appeared in Wuhan (province of Hubei, China), in the last months of 2019, as "coronavirus disease 2019" or COVID-19. This virus spreads quickly, and had a serious negative impact on the economies, social behaviors, and healthcare of every country in the world.

COVID-19 had an negative impact on the global radiodermatitis market. For instance, according to an article published by National Center for Biotechnology Information ( NCBI ) explains Radiation therapy dermatitis is a side effect caused mainly by systemic therapy after previous radiation therapy. A few case reports describe radiation caloderma in breast cancer patients treated with postoperative radiotherapy after vaccination against COVID-19. In this study, researchers investigated the prevalence and severity of radiation callus dermatitis after COVID-19 vaccination in irradiated breast cancer patients.
Global Radiodermatitis Market: Key Developments
For instance, on September 15, 2020, an article published by Elsevier Inc., Netherland based published company explained of the 80 unique patients with 192 photographs, 47 patients answered the questionnaire about their symptoms during radiodermatitis. Physicians completed toxicity forms for 52 patients at the point of care. Protein count values compared to patient-reported dry and wet scale showed high specificity and negative predictive value, respectively, indicating correct identification of patients who did not report dry or wet to climb to climb the sensitivity and positive predictive value of the different measures of dry and wet scale were significantly lower. A combined measure of any scale (dry or wet) showed greater diagnostic accuracy, resulting in 72% sensitivity, 93% specificity, 75% positive predictive value and 92% negative predictive value. Photonumerical dry or wet scale ratings were significantly associated with patient reports of itching, burning or stinging, pain, and swelling.
