Abstract/OtherAbstract:
The emergence of biomarkers linking disease and treatment effects in a clear manner presents an opportunity to change the current drug development paradigm, which could lead to more cost-efficient and higher-quality clinical trials. This has raised the hopes of venture capital investors, who may be able to better navigate the stormy and risky sea of early-stage life science investments, to find a way out of the current funding crisis for novel, nonvalidated drugs and their clinical development. The following survey paints a snapshot of the current perception of biomarkers as a paradigm changer in the eyes of the venture capital community.
