Molecular Histopathology and Tissue Biomarkers in Drug and Diagnostic Development gathers diverse experts to present state of the art guidance and application of histopathology in drug development settings ranging from discovery research to human clinical trials. While many current applications of quantitative histology and molecular pathology in the biopharmaceutical industry are focused on oncology, this volume in addition explores non-oncologic disease areas including nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, arthritis, celiac disease, myeloproliferative disorders, neurology, and wound healing. The authors write from years of experience in diagnostic practice and pharmaceutical drug development, aiming to educate pharmaceutical and academic scientists how to best use tissue to diagnose disease and improve the process of drug development. As part of the Methods in Pharmacology and Toxicology series, this volume is designed to provide wisdom and examples that others can follow and apply as part of drug development.
Comprehensive and practical, Molecular Histopathology and Tissue Biomarkers in Drug and Diagnostic Development will inform and enlighten both tissue-focused and non-tissue-focused drug development professionals about better use and interpretation of the multidimensional data contained in a tissue biopsy.
