NEW YORK, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- Reportlinker.com announces that a new market research report is available in its catalogue:

Breast Cancer Biomarkers, 2010

http://www.reportlinker.com/p0204916/Breast-Cancer-Biomarkers-2010.html

This report provides a comprehensive and up-to-date review of current and recently discovered breast cancer biomarkers. Today, biomarkers recommended to guide the diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer, are limited in number. In their most recent (2007) guidelines, the American Society of Clinical Oncology (ASCO) supported the case for just nine markers, based on studies carried out between 1999 – 2006.

However, recent years have seen the discovery and clinical study of significant numbers of new biomarkers and additional clinical data are now available on earlier markers not yet in common use. Collectively, these biomarkers are providing valuable insights, diagnostically and therapeutically, in key areas of breast cancer. These include diagnosis, metastasis and spread, therapy direction, response to therapy, prognosis, predisposition, drug discovery and clinical research. This report presents the studies and a utility-based classification of more than 200 breast cancer markers, reported in studies between Jan 2003 and May 2010. Going forward, many of these will very likely find valuable application in the clinic, in diagnostics, therapeutics, clinical research and drug discovery. This report also includes (at no additional cost) a six-monthly update, allowing readers to stay current with new findings over the coming year.

Overview

Biomarkers

Biomarkers identified in this report include: proteins, peptides, metabolites, genes and mutations, epigenetic species and other molecules. In particular, the report identifies molecules that offer minimally invasive techniques. As part of this report, biomarkers are classified by their potential utility. These areas include: diagnosis and staging (e.g. early detection); metastasis (e.g. to lymph nodes, bone); therapy directing (e.g. single and multiple drugs); response to therapy (e.g. favourable, resistance); prognosis (e.g. of relapse ); potential drug targets and diagnostic opportunities (e.g. novel proteins up-regulated in breast cancer tissues or elevated in the circulation); biomarker source (e.g. blood, tissue , urine); type (e.g. protein, gene); and function (e.g. of gene or protein).

Easy-to-Use

This report presents findings on more than 200 proposed breast cancer biomarkers in a review that includes studies over the last eight years, through to May 2010. The report is presented in pdf format and provides the reader with an easy-to-read layout. Biomarkers are discussed and presented by their potential utility in key breast cancer areas, including diagnosis, metastasis, response to therapy, prognosis and disease predisposition. Figures and tables from this report are also provided in pdf slide format.

Opportunities

The study of biomarkers is one of the most promising and dynamic areas of cancer research today, as scientists seek to extend their understanding of the disease at the biological level. These advances are giving rise to more discriminating diagnostic tools and therapies, as well as a providing a deeper understanding of genetic and phenotypic differences at the patient level, as medicine moves ever closer to more personalised therapies. While these developments create important opportunities, this rapidly evolving field is also seeing uncertainty as interest shifts from past findings, to more promising recent advances. This report provides a comprehensive review on current opportunities in this field. In addition, through a six-monthly is provided (at no additional cost) with this report, helping readers to remain current with new advances and opportunities. informed of future opportunities.

Six-Monthly Update

The increasing availability of advanced genomic and proteomic tools is accelerating research in the cancer biomarker field, leading to the rapid growth of new findings. To keep pace with these developments, this report includes a six-monthly update, identifying the most promising advances and opportunities. This update will automatically be sent to purchasers of this report, at no additional cost.
