A biomarker is a characteristic that can be objectively measured as an indicator of normal biological processes, pathogenic processes or a pharmacological response to a therapeutic intervention. These are used for many purposes including disease diagnosis and prognosis, prediction and assessment of treatment response.
Biomarkers can be characteristic biological properties or molecules that can be detected and measured in parts of the body like the blood or tissue. They may indicate either normal or diseased processes in the body.
Biomarkers can be specific cells, molecules, or genes,gene products, enzymes, or hormones.
