Molecular imaging biomarkers are playing an increasingly important role in efforts to increase the probability of success of drug candidates by helping to validate novel drug targets in support of proof‐of‐concept testing early in the drug discovery and development process. By facilitating better and faster decision‐making, molecule and mechanism–based failures can be identified and eliminated from a research portfolio early in development thereby focusing research efforts on the best drug… Expand
