目錄

Biomarkers in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis is focused on the biomarker identification and development in patients with Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). As a spin-off of Biomarkers: Discovery and Development for a Diagnostic Approach to Neurodegenerative Disorders, this report focuses on the ALS space featured in the parent report, highlighting several biomarker targets under investigation and the progress that has been made in the industry. With regards to employing the use of biomarkers for Parkinson's Disease, Biomarkers in Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis captures market growth of biomarkers, advantages, disadvantages, and validation techniques.

Experts interviewed in this report include:

  • Dr. Merit Ester Cudkowicz, Chief of Neurology at Massachusetts General Hospital
  • Dr. Andreas Jeromin, CSO and President of Atlantic Biomarkers

Also available in this report is extensive survey data exclusively conducted for this report. Illustrated by 30 figures captured by an in-depth analysis, this section features insight into targets under investigation, challenges, advantages, and desired features of future diagnostic applications.

To add even more to the robustness of this report, Insight Pharma Reports also engineered a table of clinical trial information and pipeline data from multiple databases related to ALS. This table features companies, targets, clinical phases, and brief target/product descriptions.

Executive Summary

iomarkers have been a heavily studied topic of interest, and recently on the rise is the interest in neurodegenerative disorders, specifically Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS). This report covers extensive background information, highlights market growth and outlook, and features clinical trial and pipeline information.

After the introduction, Chapters 2 and 3 highlight background information relevant to the rest of this report and include definitions and elaborate examples of different types of biomarkers used in the clinic. Chapter 2 concludes with market growth, advantages of biomarkers, disadvantages of biomarkers, and validation techniques. Chapters 3 gives a brief overview of neurodegenerative disorders, also speaking to the market growth and rise in interest in biomarkers over the years.

Chapter 4 gives specifics on ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig's disease. This chapter features definitions, symptoms, genetic markers, and current research regarding informative background information in this disease space. In this chapter, Dr. Merit Ester Cudkowicz, Chief of Neurology at Massachusetts General Hospital, discusses her progress on discovering biomarkers for therapeutic development and understanding the biology of ALS. This is further complemented by Dr. Andreas Jeromin, CSO and President of Atlantic Biomarkers. He provides insight on the diagnostic applications that biomarkers possess, and the company's impact on healthcare.

Chapter 6 includes an elaborate survey analysis exclusively done for this report. Qualifying participants worked with neurobiomarkers, neurodiagnostics, or both. With over 30 survey figures depicting the general R&D group working in this space, this section provides information including: research demographics, targets under investigation, challenges, advantages, and desired features of future diagnostic applications.

Finally, Insight Pharma Reports also engineered a table of clinical and pipeline information related to Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis.
