Blood biopsies are shown to be fast and accurate, as well as less stressful on the patients. Now, in another breakthrough using liquid biopsies, researchers report success in the early detection of mesothelioma and screening for multiple cancers using one tool.

Researchers from Uppsala University, Karolinska Institutet, and the University of [...]

According to an Aug. 25 press release from the Ohio State University [...]

Therefore, it’s on scientists’ radar screen. Scientists are evaluating the role of mesothelin in the spread of cancer and its potential usefulness as a signal of cancer for [...]

Unfortunately, the immune system doesn’t distinguish between harmful bacteria and friendly foreign objects such as medical devices implanted in a patient or nanoparticles used to deliver medicine to tumors.
