Procalcitonin (PCT) is a peptide precursor of the hormone calcitonin, and belongs to calcitonin (CT) superfamily of peptides. Procalcitonin is a 116 amino acid peptide that has an estimated molecular weight of 14.5 kDa. It can be segregated into three parts, namely immature calcitonin, calcitonin carboxyl-terminus peptide-1, and amino terminus of the PCT region. Procalcitonin was first classified by Bernard Roos and Leonard J. Deftos in the early 1970s. Procalcitonin is produced by C cells of the thyroid and by endocrine cells of the lung.

Procalcitonin Antibody Market Dynamics
Procalcitonin variance in healthy individuals and microbial infected individuals has led to the use of PCT as a marker to develop antibiotic therapy and improve identification of bacterial infections. Increasing prevalence of various chronic diseases such as hepatitis, sepsis, tuberculosis, and HIV is expected to propel growth of the procalcitonin antibody market. For instance, according to the World Health Organization (WHO) fact sheet of 2018, cancer was responsible for 8.8 million deaths in 2015 globally.
Moreover, according to the World Health Organization report of 2017, around 1.0 million deaths occurred due to HIV related illnesses worldwide. Furthermore, WHO 2017, fact sheet revealed that 71 million people were having chronic hepatitis C infection. Approximately 399,000 people die each year from hepatitis C, mostly from cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. These incidences have led to the adoption of new techniques and procedures by research institutes and hospitals for quick diagnosis of the diseases, so that it can be treated within the earliest time frame.
