The global healthcare industry is undergoing key developments, advanced point-of-care diagnostics, availability of cost-effective treatment modalities and personalized medicine, which not only offers efficient early stage diagnosis, while also treating cancer conditions in order to reduce the overall healthcare cost and disease burden. This is one technology which has the potential to revolutionize cancer therapeutics and diagnostics in the healthcare sector.
An effective management and administration of targeted therapeutics and monitoring of cancer condition requires frequent profiling of patient’s tumor mutations. Currently, the profiling of cancer has become very critical for cancer diagnosis, clinical trials, research and drug development efforts. With the launch of novel and efficacious targeted therapies that are developed and approved, profiling of tumors will become essential for therapy, patient selection and monitoring.
It is critical to understand the multivariate nature of cancer is and drug response also depends on molecular profiling at genetic, epigenetic and protein levels. Biomarkers, as defined by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), are “characteristics that are objectively measured and evaluated as an indicator of normal biologic processes, pathogenic processes, or pharmacologic responses to a therapeutic intervention.” A biomarker has to be reliable, measurable, specific and predicative.
Cancer is a highly heterogenous disease involving dysregulation of multiple pathways regulating many fundamental cell processes such as growth, death, proliferation, differentiation and migration. Minor differences and subtle feedback nuances such as tumor microenvironments and endocrine feedback loops, often translate into major differences between cancers, and between patients who have the same cancers. These activities of molecular networks that orchestrate metabolic or cytoskeletal processes, or harmonize these by signal transduction, are altered in a complex manner by many genetic mutations in concert with the environmental context. The challenge is to understand these multivariate dysregulations, with respect to both to how it arises from diverse genetic mutations and to how it can be treated. High-throughput experimental platform technologies ranging from genomic sequencing to transcriptomic, proteomic and metabolomic profiling are now commonly used for molecular-level characterization of tumor cells and surrounding tissues.
The major causes of cancer are infection and chronic inflammation. In this report, a general overview of the connection between cancer profiling technologies and cancer is provided. A better insight of these connections can yield novel diagnostic, preventive, and therapeutic strategies to reduce the global cancer burden. Gene expression profiling methods enable the detection and measurement of multiple expressed gene transcripts in a single RNA sample. Newer and improved methods for microarray analysis, multiplex PCR and quantitative real-time PCR are integral to deciphering the molecular mechanisms involved in gene function, cancer development and disease progression, and are important tools in the discovery and development of new drug targets and diagnostic biomarkers. Innovative tools and techniques for sequencing and tumor profiling are growing and may represent excellent opportunities for life science suppliers.
