Blood Test Detects Over 50 Types Of Cancer Before Symptoms Start
A new study published in the Annals of Oncology shows that a new blood test can detect over 50 cancers before a person starts to show symptoms.The new test was able to detect cancer and the where it started 90% of the time. It also only gave a false positive test less than 1% of the time. How the test works is by looking for abnormal gene expression by monitoring a chemical process called methylation. By identifying abnormal methylation they are able to identify abnormal gene expression and hence, tumor growth. “Our earlier research showed that the methylation approach outperformed both whole genome and targeted sequencing in the detection of multiple deadly cancer types across all clinical stages, and in identifying the tissue of origin,” says Dr. Michael Seiden. According to Professor Fabrice André, “This is a landmark study and a first step toward the development of easy-to-perform screening tools. Earlier detection of more than 50% of cancers could save millions of lives every year worldwide and could dramatically reduce morbidity induced by aggressive treatments.”
