A biological marker, or biological marker, is a observable predictor of some biological condition. Biomarkers are also assessed and analyzed to investigate natural biological processes, pathogenic processes, or pharmacological responses to a therapeutic response. Biomarkers are used in many areas of research. Biomarkers used in medicine, or precision, are part of a relatively new set of clinical tools. They 're classified according to their clinical uses in 3 key ways. They are known as biomarkers of the genes, biomarkers of the cells or biomarkers of the imaging. All 3 types of biomarkers play a clinical role in narrowing or guiding therapeutic decisions and are sub-categorized in of being either predictive, prognostic, or diagnostic. Passing confirmation predictive genetic, cellular, or imaging biomarkers may serve as a means of predicting clinical outcomes. Predictive biomarkers are used to help refine optimal therapies, which also suggest the probability that a particular intervention will benefit. This offers a dual approach, both to see patterns in retrospective studies and to use biomarkers to predict outcomes. For example, predictive biomarkers in metastatic colorectal cancer can serve as a way to assess and increase patient survival rates and, on a case-by - case basis, can serve as a way to help patients prevent needless toxicity resulting from cancer care.
