Scientists Developed a New Blood Test Able to Detect 8 Cancer Types
A team of scientists from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine created a new blood test that can be a much simpler and more effective diagnostic technique than most of the modern techniques. This technique called CancerSEEK and has the potential of identifying 8 types of cancer from one sample of blood.
For the study, the researchers tested CancersEEK on 1,005 individuals who were diagnosed with non-metastatic forms of one of the 8 cancers. They discovered that the test was able to identify 70% of cancers. Its sensitivity varied depending on the cancer type.
Study co-author Dr. Bert Vogelstein of Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine says: “This test represents the next step in changing the focus of cancer research from late-stage disease to early disease, which I believe will be critical to reducing cancer deaths in the long-term.”
