Manufacturers Comply with Regulations and Increase Clinical Trials for Non-invasive Imaging Methodologies

Perflourocarbons are not the major cause of ozone depletion, as carbon dioxide is. But their certain ozone-depleting substances are of great concern for manufacturers in the perflourocarbons market. The United States Environmental Protection Agency has regularized policies and limited the use of perflourocarbons in multiple industrial sectors. To overcome this challenge, manufacturers in the perflourocarbons market are complying with these regulations by consciously controlling the release of perflourocarbons into the environment. They are also actively participating in partnership programs, and through these programs, are gaining insights on cost-effective emission reduction solutions.

On other terms, manufacturers in the perflourocarbons market are collaborating with stakeholders in the healthcare space. These efforts are being made to develop non-invasive imaging methodologies in assessing the potential efficacy of CNS (Central Nervous System) transplantation of stem cells. To investigate this, manufacturers are introducing perflourocarbon dual-modal magnetic resonance imaging with tracer agents to gain information on spinal cord transplantation. However, this method has limitations in thoroughly evaluating the status of cells and their migration in stem cell transplantation. Thus, manufacturers in the perflourocarbons market should team up with researchers to undertake further clinical trials in animals and humans to develop efficacious non-invasive imaging methodologies.
