Seeking Noninvasive Ways To Detect Lung Cancer Early

Scientists are looking for non-invasive ways to detect lung cancer in order to reduce the number of patients diagnosed with an advanced stage of the disease. A multiple marker test in is one such way. In research performed at the in , researchers looked at blood from 100 healthy donors and blood from 100 patients with non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC). By using a combination of four specific testing techniques, they could discriminate between healthy donors and NSCLC patients.

Paola Ulivi, researcher at , a biosciences laboratory in Meldola, Italy, shared the latest on her research at an abstract session at the Hotel.

The 5th Latin American Conference on Lung Cancer highlights the latest in and tobacco control. Nearly 1,000 medical professionals gather at the conference to discuss the latest and treatment. Lung cancer kills more than 1.5 million people each year worldwide. It is also among the most challenging cancers to treat.
