Biomarker Validation

Biomarkers are characteristics that are objectively measured and evaluated as indicators of normal biological processes, pathogenic processes, or pharmacologic responses to therapeutic interventions. They are increasingly used in medical areas to predict, study, and treat disease. In cancer medicine, biomarkers, which are often proteins, help to drive patient management such as deciding whether to undergo a given or further treatment for patients and evaluating whether a certain medication will cause more harm than good to patients.
