Advances in genomics, proteomics, molecular imaging, and other new technologies are leading to a molecularly based reclassification of malignancy, creating market opportunities for diagnostic companies.
Companion diagnostics - linking drugs with diagnostics - is expected to become the prevailing health care model, offering advantages for both the prescription drug and diagnostics businesses. For diagnostics companies, combining with a successful companion drug can be a powerful driver of sales, especially when required for prescribing a drug.
If government regulatory agencies increase the use of biomarkers and diagnostics in prescribing decisions, it is likely that drug and diagnostics companies will increase their collaboration. New relationships are likely to develop between partners committed to personalized medicine embracing the approach of specialized pharmaceutical firms.

Your key questions answered

* Which of the cancer diagnostic market segments are forecast to grow most rapidly through to 2016 and thus be the most commercially attractive?
* What are the key innovations in molecular diagnostics that are going to drive market growth?
* How can pharma and diagnostic companies work together to successfully develop combined drug and diagnostic products?
* Which companies are developing the most promising technologies?
