"This book focuses on the use of biomarkers in drug development, for efficacy and targeted drug therapy as well as for predicting drug harm. It is a collection of papers that present the authors' examples of their work using biomarkers, not only for drug development but also for regulatory review."--Doody.com, January 3, 2014***
"Scientists from academia, drug companies, and regulatory agencies explore ways to develop biomarkers and integrate them in both developing and regulating drugs. They cover the impact of biomarker qualification regulatory processes on the critical path for drug development, biomarker development and qualification in the pharmaceutical industry, toxicogenomic biomarkers, biomarkers of drug safety, consortia, and the path to regulatory qualification process development."--Reference & Research Book News, December 2013
