The role of biomarkers in drug discovery and development is increasing incessantly in several therapeutic areas such as oncology, cardiology, immunology, metabolic and neuroscience.
The identification of biomarkers associated with a patient’s responsiveness to investigational drugs can help in achieving significant efficacy with minimum adverse events in clinical trials on the targeted patient population.
Biomarker identification and adoption are especially valuable in rare diseases and precision medicine development, which requires a wide array of services throughout the entire process of clinical research such as DNA sequencing, gene expression profiling, large molecule bioanalysis, cell separation technology and more. It also requires innovative technologies and state-of-the-art platforms to support both pre-clinical and clinical biomarker studies.
