Personalized medicine has the potential to change the way we think about, identify, and manage health problems. In the pharmaceutical industry, it is already having an exciting impact on both clinical research and patient care. This impact will continue to grow as our understanding and technologies improve. With contributions from wellknown industry leaders in clinical development, this book covers the practical aspects of personalized medicine, focusing on issues that have direct application in the industry. Topics include designs for targeted therapy, adaptive designs, evidencebased adaptive statistical decisions, and design strategies for maximizing the efficiency of clinical oncology.
Preface: The successful utilization of biomarkers in clinical development and, indeed, realization of personalized medicine require a close collaboration among different stakeholders: clinicians, biostatisticians, regulators, commercial colleagues, and so on. For this reason, we invited experts from different fields of expertise to address the opportunities and challenges, and discuss recent advancements related to biomarkers and their translation into clinical development. The first four chapters discuss biomarker development from a clinical perspective ranging from introduction to biomarkers to recent advances in RNAi screens, epigenetics, and rare disease as targets for personalized medicine approaches. Chapters 5 through 10 are devoted to considerations from a statistical perspective, and the last chapter addresses the regulatory issues in biomarker utilization. A biomarker is a characteristic that can be objectively measured and evaluated as an indicator of a physiological as well as pathological process or response to a therapeutic intervention. Although there is nothing new about biomarkers such as glucose for diabetes and blood pressure for hypertension, the current focus on molecular biomarkers has taken the center stage in the development of molecular medicine. Molecular diagnostic technologies have enabled the discovery of molecular biomarkers and are assisting in the definition of the pathogenic mechanism of diseases. Biomarkers represent the basis of the development of diagnostic assays as well as the target for drug discovery. Biomarkers can help monitoring drugs effect in clinical trials as well as in clinical practice.
