Researchers at Umea University in Sweden together with a scientific team from the USA presented a method capable of a drop of blood to determine the presence or absence of human cancer. The test's accuracy reaches 100%.
The method was tested on volunteers 282, 228 was identified one of the known forms of cancer, the others were completely healthy. The new system has identified the presence of cancer markers in all 228 patients with cancer. This allowed us to determine the approximate location and type of tumor without additional research.
Especially important, experts say, ways of detecting cancer in early stages. In Russia only a quarter of patients arrive at the hospital with the first stage of the disease, and another quarter from the second stage. The rest of the doctors often can't help, it comes to life extension for years, few months or even days.
