At present, cancer ranks first as the cause of death in the world, necessitating the need to develop new anticancer agents. As a probe, biomarkers can indicate the biological and pharmacological activity of anticancer agents and are thus valuable in predicting their effectiveness during the research and development phase. This paper reviews the research on the biomarker-guided prediction of the efficacy of anticancer agents. We infer that, in the process of the development of anticancer agents, reasonable selection of biomarkers can improve the accuracy of the development of anticancer agents.
