Surrogate Tissue Analysis
Genomic, Proteomic, and Metabolomic Approaches
edited by Michael E. Burczynski

Surrogate Tissue Analysis describes initial applications and considerations for "omic" technologies in the field of surrogate tissue analysis.


  • Discusses the range of disease states and surrogate tissue profiling applications from cancer to reproduction to inflammation
  • Covers the transcriptional profiling of peripheral blood in detail with specific chapters focused on analytical considerations and additional chapters dealing with specific disease indications
  • Explores the nature of surrogate tissue profiles of toxic exposure in preclinical studies where transcriptional effects in both target and surrogate tissues can be compared
  • Focuses on expression profiling in non-blood based tissues, such as semen or nipple aspirate fluid, which can be utilized as surrogate tissues of exposure or disease progress
  • Provides an excellent overview of lipidomics and how it can be used in surrogate tissues to provide an understanding of dynamic inflammatory responses in hosts
  • Examines the burgeoning need for well-characterized and reproducible surrogate tissue analysis approaches
  • Addresses recent FDA guidelines on the use of genomic and proteomic data in new drug applications
