The Biomarkers Database was last updated in August 2004.


This database was developed by assembling and evaluating the literature relevant to human biomarkers. It catalogues and evaluates the usefulness of biomarkers of exposure, susceptibility and effect which may be relevant for a longitudinal cohort study. In addition to describing currently available, reliable human biomarkers, the report also reviews up-and-coming techniques and biomarkers in animal models that could be tested for application in human studies.

Note: The Biomarkers Database is available for download as a zip file. If you are using Windows XP, the database cannot be opened from the zip folders. Please copy the database file and pdf file into a folder other than the zip folders in order to open the database file correctly.

Additional Information

[9/08] Note: this database was created using an earlier version of Adobe and requires the use of the pdf.ocx file which may no longer be available in newer versions of Adobe. It is now included in the Zip file.

[9/04] This updated database is in MS ACCESS 2000. All entries from the first database are retained, thus, we do not need to keep a link for the older version. The user's guide is now incorporated into the MS ACCESS database; we no longer need a separate link. To access the user's guide, simply select the "View Help File" button on the main menu after opening the program in MS ACCESS. This database does not need any installation instructions like the older version. Basically, download and save to desktop and the database is ready to run.
