    Civilization diseases (diseases of the 21st century) are one of the biggest health problems of the modern world. It is estimated that they account for over 80% of all deaths in both developed and developing countries. The key role in the fight against civilization diseases is played by prevention and screening tests that allow early diagnosis of the disease and implementation of appropriate treatment.


    It is believed that the development of new diagnostic markers may allow for more effective therapy of many diseases. According to the definition of the National Institute of Health, a biomarker is a “characteristic that can be objectively measured and can be used in the assessment of physiological biological processes, pathological processes or the body’s response to therapeutic actions”. With the development of analytical techniques, the importance of biomarkers in medicine is constantly growing.
