Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The expanding field of biomarkers continues to play important roles in the healthcare industry, basics sciences, and the pharmaceutical industry. Biomarkers are changing the way in which we diagnose and classify disease, as well as providing a means to monitor disease progression or the effects of therapy. In addition, biomarkers are providing new insights into mechanisms of disease and new therapeutic targets. Biomarkers may be any quantitative measure of cellular, biochemical, or genetic alteration that occurs in a physiologic condition. While genomic and proteomic biomarkers have been at the forefront for the past number of years, recent technologic advancements have enabled the development of additional metabolic and peptide based biomarkers to the study of disease states. However it is crucial to demonstrate clinical validation of the biomarker before determining the clinical utility of any biomarker or panel of biomarkers. This special issue on biomarkers for the International Journal of Molecular Sciences will highlight recent advancements in biomarker discovery efforts and their clinical utility.
