Just as road signs tell drivers what’s ahead or what’s happening on the road, biomarkers provide scientists with the same kind of information – but for biological systems. Formally, a biomarker is a measurable substance or characteristic in an organism that is indicative of some phenomenon such as a condition, a disease, a diet, an intervention, or an environmental exposure. In this regard, biomarkers can be categorized into three broad types: (i) molecular (chemicals, proteins or genes), (ii) cellular (cell type, cell morphology, tissue histology) or (iii) imaging (X-ray, CT, PET or MRI features). The choice of a biomarker type very much depends on the phenomenon being studied and the biological system under investigation.
A biomarker (short for biological marker) is a form of measuring captured cells or an organism (saliva samples) at a given moment. Biomarkers are medical signs that can serve as an early warning system for your health. Many biomarkers come from simple measurements made by collecting a saliva sample with a swab, allowing to look for signs of anomalies or changes at the molecular and cellular level that are within the genes (chromosomes, DNA…) or proteins (food that feeds the cells).
In medicine, the primary purpose of biomarkers is to diagnose, prognose or predict disease. They can also be used to assess exposures to drugs, toxins, pollutants, foods or other ingested substances. Interest in biomarkers, especially molecular biomarkers, has grown considerably over the past 50 years. The vast majority of information was collected, illustrated or annotated from original source data or primary literature data by a team of curators over the course of nearly 10 years. Key to assessing a biomarker's performance is its sensitivity, specificity, ROC curve, reproducibility, statistical significance, and the availability of threshold or cut-off values. Information included within came from four major types of molecular biomarkers (chemical, protein, DNA and karyotypic) and four biomarker categories (diagnostic, predictive, prognostic and exposure) which are associated more than 27 broad disease categories and over 600 different conditions or diseases. This database provides a level of coverage and depth that has not been seen in other publicly accessible biomarker databases. In addition to providing broad, in-depth biomarker coverage, a major focus of the provision of detailed information, not only about the biomarker itself, but also about its performance, its approval status and the disease or condition with which the biomarker is associated.
In short, DNA biomarkers can find anomalies within your cells and quickly predict if you may have a medical issue now or one that may appear within the future.
Medical signs used in biomarkers stand in contrast to a medical symptom that a person is limited to those indications of health or illness by people themselves. Biomarkers take into account not just incidence and outcome of disease, but also the effects of treatments, interventions, and even unintended environmental exposure, such as to chemicals or nutrients (environment risk assessments). The World Health Organization (WHO) has stated that a true definition of biomarkers includes “almost any measurement reflecting an interaction between a biological system and a potential hazard, which may be chemical, physical, or biological. The measured response may be functional and physiological, biochemical at the cellular level, or a molecular interaction.” A clinical endpoint reflects or characterizes how a person “feels, functions, or survives”.
idōs has collected, consolidated and cross referenced known clinical and pre-clinical biomarkers which contains 142 protein biomarkers, 1,089 chemical biomarkers, 154 karyotype biomarkers, and 26,374 genetic markers. These are categorized into 25,560 diagnostic biomarkers, 102 prognostic biomarkers, 265 exposure biomarkers and 6,746 predictive biomarkers. Collectively, these markers are used to detect, monitor or predict 670 specific human conditions which are grouped into 27 broad condition categories. idōs uses the predicted human conditions discovered during health DNA test to determine the best nutraceutical supplements, serums and therapeutics. In short, the information produced helps to educate/recommend when, where, how much, how often, and what kind of products (nutraceuticals) to consider taking.
Studies have shown that biomarkers can provide evidence about the safety and efficacy of treatments and offer more definition to what a person is actually going through. The use of biomarkers has established the ability to predict future medical issues (cancer, cardiovascular disorder, immune system disorder, mental or behavioral disorder…), and determine the progression or recession of diseases.
