Biomarkers are molecules present in the blood, other body fluids such as serum, urine, or in tissue that are indicators of a disease or abnormal conditions. Biomarkers are mostly used as diagnostic tools. Biomarkers help in identifying potential drug failures in initial stages, leading to savings in time and costs. Biomarkers are becoming an essential part of the drug discovery process. Cancer Biomarkers are proteins or metabolites indicative of tumor state and progression characteristics. They are non-invasive, enable high speed cancer diagnosis and also enhance early cancer detection and screening. The best example of a cancer biomarker is that of prostate specific antigen. PSA is measured in the blood to screen for and monitor treatment for prostate cancer. PSA, as a biomarker helps the doctors to monitor the progress of the cancer. It also helps to evaluate the response of the cancer to the treatment therapy.
