High-throughput genomic technologies have the potential to have a major impact on preclinical and clinical drug development and the selection and stratification of patients in clinical trials. These technologies, which are at varying stages of commercialization, include array-based comparative genomic hybridization, single-nucleotide polymorphism arrays, and (the most mature example) expression-based arrays. One of the rate-limiting steps in the routine clinical application of expression array-based technology is the need for suitable clinical samples. One of the major challenges moving forward, therefore, relates to the ability to use formalin-fixed, paraffin-embedded--derived tissue in expression profiling-based approaches.
