    Researchers hopes Galleri trial will be a ‘gamechanger’ for early diagnosis and save many lives

    The NHS is to trial a simple blood test that may help identify more than 50 forms of cancer years before diagnosis, in what it hailed as a potential “gamechanger”.
    If successful the blood test, known as Galleri, could revolutionise early diagnosis of cancer and save many lives by identifying symptoms quickly enough for prompt treatment to make the difference between life and death.
    The blood test will be offered to 165,000 people in England from mid-2021, the vast majority of whom have no signs of the disease.

    Sounds like very early stages since "...the one available published paper on the tests found they detected just 25% of early-stage cancers and fewer than half of late-stage cases of the disease." I was also hoping to learn something about the mechanics of the test, but perhaps that's still a trade secret. On the other hand, any forward progress against cancer is encouraging.
