    Ovarian cancer has a high mortality risk because it is so often diagnosed at a very late stage. In a new study, our team has shown that detection rates can be significantly improved by screening for a specific set of proteins in the bloodstream. This could mean detection of ovarian cancer up to two years before current screenings allow. Cancer tests walk a harsh line between missing cancer and misdiagnosing healthy people

    This is excellent news!! Ovarian cancer, like pancreatic cancer, is often not detected until late stages. I'm reminded of another blood test to detect cancer, recently developed by Johns Hopkins School of Medicine. The test is called CancerSEEK. It's designed to detect multiple types of cancer. And, the good news is the test will be given as part of routine patient screenings, allowing for earlier detection of various types of cancers. Read more about CancerSeek here:

    In a similar vein, all that sort of sounds like the PSA test for the prostate.

    So glad to see more good news to offset fires in the Amazon and other grim realties! If this becomes commercially available, Mr. Wizard, please remind me to add it to our Resource list.
