DNA test for cervical cancer4th October 2007
A new DNA test to detect cervical cancer at an earlier stage may help to show which women are at risk and potentially save lives.
Researchers working at the School of Medicine at Cardiff University have developed the idea of the test through their study of telomeres. Telomeres are "small protective structures" which sit "at the end of human chromosomes".
If the test - currently at the development stage - is implemented, it could also help to reduce costs for the NHS.
