Blood test for early breast cancer14th December 2007
A new blood test to detect breast cancer in its earliest stages could be made available in the UK next year.
Norwegian life sciences company DiaGenic ASA, which makes the test, say that it is designed to detect the disease even before symptoms become apparent and works by detecting abnormal patterns of gene activity which would not be found in healthy tissue. Younger women may particularly feel the benefit if the test is used alongside a mammogram as their breasts are denser and mammograms may not detect changes in the breast tissue.
