NMR metabolomics as a tool for biomarker discovery: Hype, limitations, and hope

Metabolomics technologies have recently come to the fore in the context of biomarker discovery. Metabolic dysfunction is a noted hallmark in numerous disease states, and thus multivariate measurement and analysis of metabolite parameters provides a potential window into both diagnostic as well as prognostic realms. In this presentation, the advantages and disadvantages of biomarker discovery by NMR metabolomics methods will be discussed. In particular, the use of quantitative methods for metabolite analysis will be contextulized against other tools such as mass spectrometry based metabolite discovery. A biological context will be provided in our clinical oncology studies in the areas of pancreatic, colorectal, lung and brain cancer
