Companion diagnostics is the use of genetic variation (e.g., SNPs, gene expression variability and other molecular signatures) to detect different patient responses to particular drugs or biologic agents in order to understand and correlate their individual differential responses to pharmaceutical agents. Companion diagnostics can be deployed clinically to stratify patients based on their response to certain therapeutic agents, known as personalized medicine, and companion diagnostics will also play an increasingly important role in cancer treatments over the forecast period.

The "Companion Diagnostics in Personalized Medicine and Cancer" report covers:

  • Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor Assay, Individualized Warfarin Therapy and other uses of companion diagnostics in clinical situations
  • IVDMIA, Irinotecan and UGT1A1, Tyrosine Kinase and other cancer biomarker tests
  • MGMT Methylation Assay and other pharmacogenomics tests
  • Recurrence prediction tests
  • Blood-based technologies
  • Proteomics
  • Personalized Medicine Coalition (PMC)
  • Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA)
  • Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA)
