Therapeutic Development: Target Validation and Biomarkers
Biomarkers are essential elements in translational medicine and play an important role in therapeutic discovery and development. Biomarker selection, validation, and application are critical for several steps, such as target validation, assessments of safety and efficacy, pharmacodynamic or pharmacokinetic responses, patient selection, clinical endpoints, and understanding of the mechanism of disease progression and therapeutic intervention during the course of therapeutic developments. Successful application of validated biomarkers is the key strategy to improve the drug discovery and development towards new medical entities.
