Biomarkers: Discovery Techniques and Applications - A Global Market Overview

DUBLIN, April 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets ( has announced the addition of the "Biomarkers: Discovery Techniques and Applications - A Global Market Overview" report to their offering.

     (Logo: )

The potential offered by biomarkers in shaping the outcomes of clinical trials, identifying new drug targets and developing diagnostic assays for detecting diseases early is immense, which has ensued in a large number of scientific publications coming out over the past two decades. Biomarker research encompasses widespread fields of discipline, which comprise drug discovery, toxicity, clinical markers of efficacy and therapeutic indicators, development of diagnostic assays and environmental pollutant exposure. The fields of epidemiology and toxicology have also made use of biomarkers in indicating exposure to a range of environmental substances. In such instances, the biomarker could be the substance itself, such as asbestos particles or nicotine-derived nitrosamine ketone (NNK) from tobacco, or a variation of the external substance processed by the body, such as a metabolite. Using biomarkers in species, such as aquatic animals and invertebrates can be helpful in determining levels and ranges of environmental pollutants.

Personalized medicine constitutes another facet that has been in an ever increasing mode, wherein genomic data are utilized for classifying subsets of patients that would respond to a specific line of therapy. The progression of biomarker research in ascertaining the basics of personalized medicine implies that the prospects of jointly developing drugs and biomarkers would be associated with identifying that section of the population that would garner the maximum benefit from that drug treatment. Developing such biomarkers requires expending considerable efforts and resources, which would enable in expanding the tasks accomplished by biomarkers in disease screening as surrogate endpoints and diagnostic indices.

Biomarker discovery techniques analyzed in this report include Bioimaging, Bioinformatics and Omics Technologies. On a broader geographic level, these technologies further drilled down to Bioimaging - Computed Tomography (CT), Magnetic Resonence Imaging (MRI), Ultrasound and Other; and Omics Technologies - Genomics, Metabolomics, Proteomics and Other. The study also explores the global market for therapeutic areas of biomarkers comprising Cardiology, Neurology, Oncology and Other.
