New technology can detect tiny ovarian tumors

A highly sensitive way to reveal ovarian tumors has now been developed by researchers. In tests in mice, they were able to detect tumors smaller than 2 millimeters in diameter. The new test makes use of a ’synthetic biomarker‘ — a nanoparticle that interacts with tumor proteins and can be detected in a patient’s urine sample. (Mehr in: Cancer News — ScienceDaily)
