Database of MEDLINE was used to obtain all papers indexed as a major main heading of “Biological Markers” through 2000-2011. Results: The analysis of the obtained data indicated that a total number of 394 papers under a Major Main Heading of “Biological Markers” were indexed in MEDLINE during the last decade. Tehran University of Medical Sciences producing 18.78% of total publications from Iran was the most prolific university. The majority of Iranian papers were published by the Pakistan Journal of Biological Sciences.
