Study finds that almost 75% of cancer drug candidates rely on biomarker data.
The opportunity to more precisely target and to personalize medical treatments based on biomarker data has attracted growing interest from biopharmaceutical companies. A recent study by the Tufts Center for the Study of Drug
Development (Tufts CSDD) finds that oncology dominates personalized medicine product development in part because cancer-related illnesses are extremely complex and they receive the highest level of R&D activity. Companies involved in developing personalized medicines report that across all phases, 73% of oncology drugs now rely on biomarker data. This compares with 42% of compounds in all indications.
