Naperville, IL -- (SBWIRE) -- 12/03/2013 -- Reportstack, provider of premium market research reports announces the addition of PharmaFocus: Biomarkers in Alzheimer's Disease market report to its offering
Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease that is characterized by memory loss, cognitive impairment, and functional decline. The disease has emerged as a major global health priority especially because of its rapidly accelerating prevalence worldwide. In order to tackle the AD scourge , there is an urgent need for tools that will allow for the early and accurate diagnosis of AD, as well as the identification of populations at risk. A biomarker is an indicator of biological processes that can be objectively measured and evaluated, and well-validated biomarkers are required to satisfy these needs in AD.
The search for biomarkers that are reflective of the disease process in AD has been and continues to be an active area of research, but has been hampered by a lack of clear understanding of the pathological mechanisms that underlie the disease. Nonetheless, several biomarkers have been developed to date that indicate the presence of AD pathology and AD-associated neuronal injury in vivo. Such biomarkers have the potential for clinical use in etiological determination, predictive prognosis, monitoring disease progression, and in clinical trials of potential disease-modifying therapies for AD .
Overview of Alzheimer's disease, including disease etiology and pathophysiology and how these inform biomarker targets.
Overview of AD biomarkers, the major classes of biomarkers an the different potential roles of biomarkers in clinical use and drug development.
Key topics covered include amyloid biomarkers, tau biomarkers, and other molecular biomarkers for AD in development with product profiles for marketed as well as promising pipeline assays. Also discussed are functional and structural imaging biomarkers for AD.
Analysis of the unmet needs, and opportunities within the AD biomarker arena, as well as drivers and barriers impacting the AD biomarker market . Insightful review of the regulatory considerations impacting biomarker development, market access and use in clinical drug development
