In fact, imaging is beginning to be used in all phases of drug discovery and development. A detailed discussion of such development is presented by Janet C. Miller and her colleagues in this work. Tumor gene therapy is beginning to be tested in clinical settings. To achieve the full potential of this therapy, the efficiency of this method needs to be assessed as early as possible. Imaging methods, such as magnetic resonance imaging and magnetic resonance spectroscopy, can assess early treatment response.
Briefly, the importance of prior laboratory prediction of individual drug response Introduction cannot be overestimated. Drug sensitivity is determined by multiple genes. The complexity of mechanisms involved in drug sensitivity becomes apparent considering that gene expression profiles in response to drug exposure vary considerably among individuals even for the same drug or regimen. Therefore, determination of predictive marker genes for drug sensitivity is urgently needed, which will allow us to predict therapeutic response to drugs.
