from the Australian University of Technology (UTS) Scientists have developed a new device that can detect and analyze cancer cells from blood samples. This development is an important step in terms of providing an alternative option to invasive biopsy surgeries and monitoring the treatment progress.
Early cancer diagnosis It shows the importance of cancer, which is one of the causes of death worldwide. A definitive diagnosis of cancers in organs such as the liver, colon, or kidney often requires surgery. Therefore, there is still a need for a non-invasive and cost-effective detection tool for patients with suspected cancer.
From the UTS School of Biomedical Engineering Professor Majid Warkiani In the press release, she cited the negative consequences of the biopsy for patients, such as physical discomfort, increased surgical risk and costs.
Great invention! It will be possible to detect cancer from a blood test!
“Cancer with blood samples Evaluating and managing is not as invasive as taking tissue biopsies. It allows doctors to run retests and monitor the patient’s response to treatment. he added.
Device, lead to metastasis It has significant potential as it detects circulating cancer cells that can Metastasis is the root cause of 90 percent of cancer-related deaths. Studying these cells can give researchers an opportunity to learn about the biology of cancer metastasis.
Current liquid biopsy methods time consuming, It is expensive and requires specialized operators. Therefore, its applicability in clinical settings is seen as limited.
