A huge breakthrough in ovarian cancer detection:
A major step forward...recent advances in the field of clinical proteomics, the study of patterns of proteins in human blood or other tissues, is making a definitive test for ovarian cancer a reality. A malignant ovarian cyst is said to shed a particular type of protein, this test can identify that protein. It has been successful in picking up ovarian cancer in its earliest stages. A screening test for ovarian cancer is also likely to come of this discovery. It is an enormous development for women and their families.
The future looks promising - the progress is inspiring, it creates a whole new set of needs. We must now educate women, their doctors, and their peers that a test is forthcoming. We must ensure that the test is available to every woman. We must continue to fight for a cure. Awareness and early detection are our best weapons.
