Metabolomics Promises to Provide New Diagnostic Biomarkers, Assays for Personalized Medicine and Medical Laboratories

Researchers are finding multiple approaches to metabolomic research and development involving disparate technology platforms and instrumentation Human metabolome has been discovered to be a wealth of medical laboratory biomarkers for diagnosis, therapy, and patient monitoring. Because it can provide a dynamic phenotype of the human body, there are many potential clinical laboratory applications that could arise from metabolomics, the study of metabolites. Researchers are discovering numerous...

Ongoing Growth in Volume of Clinical Laboratory Tests That Support Precision Medicine Due to Physician Acceptance; Payers Still Have Concerns

Every medical laboratory ready to begin the move away from fee-for-service payment and towards value-based reimbursement needs to start offering lab tests that support the practice of precision medicine Nearly every clinical laboratory and pathology group in America today is aware of the opportunity to provide medical laboratory tests that enable physicians to successfully practice precision medicine. The goal of precision medicine is to enable a patient to get a more accurate diagnosis,...

Expanded Knowledge about Human Metabolome Expected to Fuel Development of New Therapeutic Drugs and Medical Laboratory Tests

Pathologists and clinical laboratory professionals can expect to see new molecular test development as researchers develop new biomarkers in the wake of expanded knowledge of the genome-metabolome-diseasome correlates One field of science that bears great potential for use in diagnostics and medical laboratory testing involves the human metabolome. Researchers are gaining more understanding of the genetic underpinnings of complex disease and drug response through metabolic pathways. For...
