Biomarker Diagnostics: Place Your Bets Wisely

Executive Summary

Biomarker diagnostics are the linchpin of personalized medicine. But building a successful business around such tests is anything but straightforward, given the complexities associated with both their development and commercialization.

It may make more sense to forge a partnership with another diagnostic company or a drug developer with the goal of sharing costs and relative risks.
