In Business, Education, Government, Healthcare, Video by Al Jazeera EnglishLeave a Comment

Tech News Keywords:

The aim of the test, CancerSEEK, is to catch the disease early and save lives.Scientists at John Hopkins University in Baltimore analysed more than a thousand cancer patients who had shown symptoms of cancer, to see whether this new test would accurately confirm the diagnosis, and they discovered that for certain tumours, the CancerSEEK test was up to 98% accurate.As a tumour grows, cancerous cells within it change, reproduce and die. When cancer cells die, they can also release DNA and other fragments that get into blood. CancerSEEK is described as a 'liquid biopsy' and analyses a patient's blood sample for traces of that cancer DNA and through identifying which genes and mutations are most ac... Read More

Nick Papadopoulos tracks down tumors for a living. Not with X-rays or CT scans, but with DNA.

And now, he’s working to develop a test that could sniff out those signals before a patient starts to get sick. It’s the kind of test that Papad... Read More
