Mesothelioma Early Detection Getting Closer with Blood Test
German scientists are advancing a new, more reliable blood test that could lead to earlier detection and better prognosis for malignant mesothelioma. Instead of the typically lengthy and invasive process, the simple blood test could identify early stage disease almost a year before symptoms appear, making it much more treatable. The advancement stems from a study analyzing a combination of calretinin and mesothelin, two blood-based proteins that are overexpressed when mesothelioma tumors start growing. “This is a real breakthrough,” biochemist Dr. Georg Johnen, lead study researcher and head of Molecular Medici...
