British researchers are embarking on a new project that will lay the foundation for the development of a simple blood test to detect early signs of breast cancer.
The Cancer Research UK-backed project will be conducted in collaboration with the University of Leicester and Imperial College London and will see blood samples taken from patients attending the breast screening clinic at Charing Cross Hospital.
By comparing DNA samples with those of diagnosed breast cancer sufferers, scientists will be able to determine which genetic markers characterize the disease, making detection and treatment monitoring much easier.
This could lead to the development of new diagnostic methods that are quicker and less stressful for the patients involved.
For more details, see the University of Leicester.
