Cancer biomakers and targeted therapies are rationalized and individualized cancer therapy. Cancer biomarkers are the measurable molecular changes to either cancerous or normal tissues of patients. A reliable biomarker can be used for cancer diagnosis, risk and prognosis assessments, and for the surveillance of treatment effectiveness. More importantly, some, but not all, biomarkers can be exploited as therapeutic targets.
