Scientists Develop 10-Minute 'Holy Grail' of Cancer Detection Method
One of the most crucial aspects in the fight against cancer is an early diagnoses.????VO-surgery/mri scans??In fact, according to SWNS 9-out-of-10 cancer related deaths are because a diagnosis comes too late.
????VO-lab test/mri??That might be because different tests are required for different cancers and MRI scans often miss small tumors-????VO-doc test??Not to mention doctors usually don’t test for cancer until there are already signs of it.????VO-NClogo/cancer??But new research published in the journal nature communications may reveal what experts are calling the quote “holy grail” of cancer detection.????VO-blood-stat on screen??A new blood test that can detect cancer with 90% accuracy, cheaply in only 10 minutes.
????VO-cancer graphic??According to Dr. Abu Sina co-author of the study:????VO-’’??“Because cancer is an extremely complicated and variable disease, it has been difficult to find a simple signature common to all cancers, yet distinct from healthy cells.”????VO-body graphic??But their new method has identified an outlier that seems to be common to all cancers.
????VO-blood vessel??Allowing them to detect tiny amounts of cancerous DNA in blood vessels quickly and accurately.
????VO-check up??They hope the new detection system will allow much earlier diagnosis through routine blood tests making our current treatments more effective and improving survival rates.????VO-phone??Going on to say the tests could eventually be performed using a mobile phone.??
