Abstract

In this chapter we summarize the major strengths and weaknesses of cohort studies; consider how these characteristics influence the use of biomarkers in cohort studies; briefly review considerations of statistical power, design and the influence of measurement error in cohort studies; and discuss some of the emerging ethical considerations that relate to the use of biomarkers in prospective studies.
