Internacional (Marketwired, 15 de Agosto de 2013) cites in its newly published "Companion Biomarkers in Drug Development" report that the global companion biomarker market will catapult to $319 million by 2018. For more information, visit: biomarkers can be categorized into four main therapeutic areas: oncology, cardiovascular, neurology and autoimmune. Oncology is the largest segment, commanding 30% of the market. Market opportunities for companion biomarkers are focused in drug development targets, drug development efficacy and clinical end points. Using companion biomarkers, the $883 billion global pharmaceutical market yields safer and more efficacious drug products, reduces clinical trial and development costs, improves post-marketing safety profiles and salvages therapies that otherwise would not be granted approval.

The "Companion Biomarkers in Drug Development" report covers:

DNA Microarrays
Antibody Microarrays
Peptide Microarrays
Peptide MHC Microarrays
Tissue Microarrays
GeneChip Probe Array Technology
Multiple Reaction Monitoring Assays (MRMs)
C-KIT (CD117) Expression
CYP2C19 Variants
CYP2C9 Variants
CYP2D6 Variants
Kidney Toxicity
