Scientists Devised a Blood Test to Predict Breast Cancer Recurrence
A new study from the US looks at the body’s antitumor inflammatory response to devise a blood test that can be used to predict the chances of breast cancer recurrence.
For their research, a team of scientists recruited 40 breast cancer survivors and followed them for a period of 4 years, on average. They also used an additional sample of 38 breast cancer survivors to attempt to replicate their findings from the previous group.
The senior author of the study Dr. Peter P. Lee, chair of the Department of Immuno-Oncology at the City of Hope Comprehensive Cancer Center, in Duarte, says: “This is the first success [in] linking a solid tumor with blood biomarkers — an indicator of whether a patient will remain in remission.”
