New Blood Test Detects Early-Stage Ovarian Cancer With 90 Percent Accuracy

THURSDAY, November 19, 2015 (International Business Times) — Most of the times, ovarian cancer is difficult to predict until it spreads to the other parts of the body. Achieving a breakthrough in the field of cancer diagnosis, researchers at the Georgia Institute of Technology have figured out a way to diagnose ovarian cancer when it is at its early stage, that too with a striking accuracy.

The research team said that studying blood serum compounds of different molecular weights establishes a biomarker that can be used as a highly effective tool to screen early-stage ovarian cancer.
