Biomarkers can be used for clinical screening, diagnosis or monitoring the activity of diseases, guiding molecular targeted therapy or evaluating therapeutic response. In the biopharmaceutical industry, biomarkers define the molecular classification of patients and diseases and serve as surrogate endpoints in early-phase drug trials. The utility and importance of biomarkers have been recognized by a large amount of public and private funding, and biomarker discovery efforts are now common in both academic and industrial settings.
Drug development programs carried out by pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies are very complex and costly. Biomarkers are particularly important in the pharmaceutical industry to evaluate the safety and effectiveness of a drug, and they could also benefit the cost reduction of drug development by providing early proof-of-concept studies for novel therapeutic targets, thus reducing costly drug attrition rates. There are a wide range of types of biomarkers that can be monitored, such as predictive, pharmacodynamic, safety, and efficacy markers.
