BIOMARK’S MISSION

To provide universal access to a new paradigm in cancer diagnostics using metabolomics.

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

About Glioblastoma (GBM)

By: | Tags:

Overview Tumour Group: Gliomas WHO Grade: Grade IV Prevalence/Incidence: The incidence of glioblastoma multiforme (GBM) is 2 to 3 per 100,000 people in the United States and Europe. GBM accounts for 12 to 15% of all intracranial tumours and 50 to 60 per cent of astrocytic tumours. GBMs increase in frequency with age, and affect more men than women. Typical Age Range: GBMs may manifest at any age, but mostly…
