Cancer blood test demoes predict but more investigate is needed, says Prof Richard Marais
Scientists have taken a step towards one of the biggest objectives in remedy – a universal blood evaluation for cancer.
A team at Johns Hopkins University has trialled a method that sees eight common different forms of the disease.
Their vision is an annual exam designed to catch cancer early and save lives. UK professionals said it was “enormously exciting”.
