• Scientists use nanobodies to target tumors: Can this technology be used for effective cancer detection?

    29 days ago - By Natural News

    The ability to spot tumors and metastases at an early stage would improve the survival chances of cancer patients. A new approach uses nanobodies from alpacas to target early lesions and prevent metastasis. Earlier studies have tried to target the tumor cells. However, cancerous cells frequently mutate, which makes them hard to pin...

    Two novel blood assays demonstrated efficacy in detecting various cancer types at different disease stages, according to results of two studies presented at ASCO Breakthrough in Bangkok.
    “There is something compelling about a single blood test that could potentially complement existing screening tests to find cancers early and allow earlier intervention with a growing array of effective cancer treatments,” Geoffrey R. Oxnard, MD, thoracic oncologist at Dana-Farber Cancer Institute and associate professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, told HemOnc Today. “The
