Blood test could detect over 50 types of cancer

Mar 31, 2020 08:39 IST

Researchers from the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute in Boston, affiliated to the Harvard Medical School, have revealed a new blood test that could detect more than 50 types of cancer. The study, published in the journal Annals of Oncology, shares that the test is based on DNA shed by tumours. It was developed using a machine learning algorithm, and is now being clinically trialled. The test could become a tool for early detection, but more research is needed to show how the test may work in a real cancer screening scenario.
