Innovative Indication

In the early days, biomarkers were used primarily as physiological indicators for blood pressure or heart rate, as examples. A biomarker is an objective indication of a particular medical state observed from outside the patient, which can be measured accurately and reproducibly.

More recently, biomarkers, such as elevated prostate specific antigen, can be used as a molecular biomarker for prostate cancer or enzyme assays used as liver function tests. A biomarker is anything that can be used as an indicator of a disease state or some other physiological state of an organism.

Process characterization is an essential step in the commercialization of a new (biological) drug. For drug product commercialization, manufacturers must validate the drug’s manufacturing process.
