    People seek out health info when famous person dies

    WEDNESDAY, April 23, 2014 (HealthDay News) -- The deaths of well-known people offer an opportunity to educate the general public about disease detection and prevention, a new study suggests. Researchers surveyed 1,400 American men and women after Apple co-founder Steve Jobs died of pancreatic cancer in 2011 and learned that more than one-third of them sought information about his cause of death or information about cancer in general soon after his death was reported. About 7 percent of th...More >>

    TUESDAY, April 22, 2014 (HealthDay News) -- Less than 10 percent of crimes committed by mentally ill people are directly linked to the symptoms of their disorders, a new study shows. "When we hear about crimes committed by people with mental illness, they tend to be big headline-making crimes, so they get stuck in people's heads," said study author Jillian Peterson, a psychology professor at Normandale Community College in Bloomington, Minn.

DUBLIN, February 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --

Research and Markets (http://www.researchandmarkets.com/research/rdf8hb/companion) has announced the addition of the "Companion Biomarkers in Drug Development" report to their offering. 

     (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130307/600769 )


Companion biomarkers are diagnostic tests that are specifically linked to a therapeutic drug either during its development or in the clinic. This linkage can be an important component of the drug development process; alternatively, the companion biomarker can be useful in ameliorating the regulatory process for the drug, or acting as an aid to therapeutic use in the clinic. 

Market opportunities for companion biomarkers are focused in drug development targets, drug development efficacy and clinical end points in four main therapeutic areas: oncology, cardiovascular, neurology and autoimmune. Using companion biomarkers yields safer and more efficacious drug products, reduces clinical trial and development costs, improves post-marketing safety profiles and salvages therapies that otherwise would not be granted approval. 

This report focuses on the role of companion diagnostic tests in drug development. It provides an in-depth discussion and analysis of the application of companion biomarkers to drug development and targeted therapeutics, as well as their use in clinical trials and the regulatory forum. The examination emphasizes new and developing technology platforms meant to aid in development of drugs for therapeutic use, and sometimes to be available as companion tests for these drugs in the clinic. This report also examines companies that are actively developing and marketing companion biomarkers around the world. Detailed tables and charts with sales forecasts and marketshare data are also included.
