Metabolomics-based discovery has an important role in disease diagnosis, discovery of drug, and treatment expansion. This tool is a novel biomarker that can provide a biochemical insight into disease stages and could estimate the activity of certain drugs; it can observe the preclinical and clinical cases, leading to discovery of more efficient methods for treatment approach. This review discussed the potential of metabolomics technology as a very important approach in disease diagnosis, therapy, as well as new drug discovery.
