Noninvasive cancer biomarkers are the alternatives for the invasive tissue biopsies used for the detection of tumor presence in various cancer types. These biomarkers are used for detecting the state of disease. There are various types of biomarkers available such as circulation tumor DNA, serum micro RNAs, DNA methylation based biomarker, and protein based biomarkers and others. The technology has made it possible these days for the healthcare industry to develop early diagnostics, at-risk tests as well as prognostic biomarkers for various cancer types. The advent of next generation sequencing and enhanced knowledge on genomics and proteomics has promoted the use of noninvasive cancer biomarkers. Advancement in noninvasive cancer biomarkers opens new possibilities in the cancer treatment such as improving the therapeutic response, assessing the residues in the body, early diagnosis, measuring tumor heterogeneity and others. Increasing molecular characterization of different types of cancer also led to the increase in molecular drivers for cancer progression.
As more importance is being given nowadays on cancer prevention via early detection, the demand of these biomarkers is going to surge over the forecast period.
