The National Cancer Institute Joins the Global Community of Scientists Now Using BIOMARKERcenter From Thomson Reuters
Date:9/4/2008

PHILADELPHIA and LONDON, Sept. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Thomson Reuters, the world's leading source of intelligent information for businesses and professionals, announced today that the National Cancer Institute (NCI) has joined the community of scientists worldwide using BIOMARKERcenter, the first comprehensive resource for biomarker intelligence to provide pharmaceutical, biotechnology, diagnostic, and research organizations with a framework for assessing and tracking a potential biomarker for use at any stage of research or development.

Specifically, the National Cancer Institute's Developmental Therapeutics program and the associated Biomarker Program will integrate BIOMARKERcenter into its continuing efforts to investigate novel chemical and biological agents for their potential to improve cancer therapeutics.

"The NCI's Developmental Therapeutics Program (DTP) and its clinical counterpart, the Cancer Treatment Evaluation Program (CTEP) have been using Integrity(R) and it's predecessor, Ensemble(R), for many years as sources of current and earlier information on agents at all phases of discovery and clinical trials related to cancer," said Dave Newman, Chief, Natural Products Branch DCTD/DTP, NCI. "The availability of BIOMARKERcenter and its integration with Integrity will now permit easier integration of animal and human biomarker information at all stages of the NCI's drug discovery and development programs within the Division of Cancer Treatment and Diagnosis, the parent organization of DTP and CTEP."

Using a unique lifecycle approach to indicate the stage of a given biomarker, BIOMARKERcenter covers individual biomarker usage as identified in literature, patents, conferences, clinical trial information, and other sources for all major therapeutic areas. For each therapy area, it includes not only biomarkers with established clinical usage, but also emerging uses for the biomarker. Each record is manually curated and expertly indexed to
