NEW YORK, Nov. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:
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
