Cancer Diagnostics – Highlights
Liquid Biopsies in Cancer
Download this infographic to explore what liquid biopsies can tell us, how they compare to traditional surgical biopsies, and challenges in their development.
Exosomes in Cancer
Explore the role that exosomes play in the development of cancer, learn how they can be utilized for cancer diagnostics, and discover potential therapeutic applications.
Exploiting Exosomes for Cancer Diagnosis and Treatment
Evidence is mounting for exosomes playing a central role in many aspects of cancer biology. As researchers start to unravel the secrets of these elusive little vesicles, this is opening a host of exciting new opportunities to tackle cancer – from non-invasive diagnostics to innovative new therapeutics.
Liquid Biopsy: Guide, Applications and Techniques
Liquid biopsies are tests conducted on blood samples that examine biomarkers shed by tumors, such as cancer cells or pieces of tumor DNA. The data from liquid biopsies can be used in place of or alongside that of traditional surgical biopsies. In this article, we review the theory behind liquid biopsies and their applications in cancer medicine.
Advanced Imaging Technique Improves Breast Cancer Detection
Digital breast tomosynthesis showed improved breast cancer screening outcomes over screening with standard digital mammography alone in a study of over a million women.
Simple Urine Test Predicts Bladder Cancer Years Before Diagnosis
Researchers have identified 10 genetic mutations that can predict the most common type of bladder cancer up to 12 years prior to diagnosis. The study results were presented at the European Association of Urology (EAU) annual Congress in Milan.
New Device Rapidly Detects Circulating Tumor Cells
Researchers from the University of Technology Sydney have developed a new device that can detect and analyze cancer cells from blood samples, enabling doctors to avoid invasive biopsy surgeries and monitor treatment progress.
Mechanism of Platinum Drug Resistance in Colorectal Cancer Identified
A new study has shown that platinum-based chemotherapy drugs, used to treat some colorectal cancers, can accumulate in surrounding healthy cells and reduce the tumor's sensitivity to treatment.
App Note / Case Study
