Companion Biomarkers in Drug Development

DUBLIN, February 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/rdf8hb/companion) has announced the addition of the "Companion Biomarkers in Drug Development" report to their offering. 

     (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130307/600769 )


Companion biomarkers are diagnostic tests that are specifically linked to a therapeutic drug either during its development or in the clinic. This linkage can be an important component of the drug development process; alternatively, the companion biomarker can be useful in ameliorating the regulatory process for the drug, or acting as an aid to therapeutic use in the clinic. 

Market opportunities for companion biomarkers are focused in drug development targets, drug development efficacy and clinical end points in four main therapeutic areas: oncology, cardiovascular, neurology and autoimmune. Using companion biomarkers yields safer and more efficacious drug products, reduces clinical trial and development costs, improves post-marketing safety profiles and salvages therapies that otherwise would not be granted approval. 

This report focuses on the role of companion diagnostic tests in drug development. It provides an in-depth discussion and analysis of the application of companion biomarkers to drug development and targeted therapeutics, as well as their use in clinical trials and the regulatory forum. The examination emphasizes new and developing technology platforms meant to aid in development of drugs for therapeutic use, and sometimes to be available as companion tests for these drugs in the clinic. This report also examines companies that are actively developing and marketing companion biomarkers around the world. Detailed tables and charts with sales forecasts and marketshare data are also included.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
