BIOMARK’S MISSION

BioMark’s mission is to provide universal access to a new paradigm in cancer diagnostics using metabolomics, dynamic clinical data, radiomics and leveraging the power of machine learning.

WHAT IS A BIOMARKER?

According to the National Cancer Institute a biomarker is “a biological molecule found in blood, other body fluids or tissues that is a sign of a normal or abnormal process or of a condition or disease” (NCI) such as cancer.
Biomarkers typically differentiate an affected patient from a person without the disease. There is tremendous variety of biomarkers which can include:

  • proteins (e.g. an enzyme or receptor)
  • nucleic acids (e.g. a microRNA or other non-coding RNA)
  • antibodies
  • and peptides among other categories

A biomarker can also be a collection of alterations such as gene expression, proteomic, and metabolomic signatures.
Biomarkers can be detected in the circulation (whole blood, serum, or plasma) or excretions or secretions (stool, urine, sputum, or nipple discharge) and thus easily assessed non-invasively and serially. Biomarkers can also be tissue-derived and require either biopsy or special imaging for evaluation.

POTENTIAL CLINICAL USES OF CANCER BIOMARKERS

Biomarkers have many potential applications in oncology including:

  • Estimating risk of cancer
  • Screening for occult primary cancers
  • Distinguishing benign from malignant findings or one type of malignancy from another
  • Monitoring status of the disease either to detect recurrence or determine response or progression to therapy
  • Personalizing a treatment program especially for immunotherapy applications
  • Help in assessing pseudo progression with imaging modalities
