Clinical Validation of Health Markers
Clinical validation is a crucial step in the development of health markers. It serves to demonstrate their effectiveness, and therefore their value, to health authorities and to health professionals.
The objectives of the clinical evaluation
The clinical validation phase aims to demonstrate, on the one hand, that the health marker has an additional value over and above the clinical data and tools already that have already been validated and are available on the market and, on the other, that the knowledge of the marker’s result improves the patient’s treatment (prognosis, duration of hospitalization …).
In other words, clinical validation provides evidence of the performance and safety of the health marker in a well-defined context of use. This precise context determines the nature of the regulatory requirements that the health marker must meet during the validation if it is to obtain market authorization.
For example, if a health marker (or a combination of health markers) is intended for use as a companion diagnosis, its clinical validation is required by the health authorities. “We are able to rely on regulatory experts to help us develop appropriate protocols that match the regulatory requirements”, says our Business Development Manager.
