UK research leads to blood test for early detection of cancer

ScienceDaily (2010-06-02) -- A ground-breaking blood test promises to aid the detection of cancer as much as five years earlier than current testing methods such as mammography and CT scans. Physicians will know the result of their patient’s test within one week of sending in a blood sample, according to researchers.

Oncimmune 所發展出的方法(immuno-biomarkers),較現今使用的mammography 及 CT scans要提早上5年發現癌症,所收到的血液樣本送到Oncimmune只要一週便可檢出結果。
這個方法乃衍自John Robertson的研究結果之商業化。用在肺癌(EarlyCDT-Lung™ )已在全美上市,英國則在2011年上市
