A blood test for breast cancer 5 years before signs
A blood test could detect breast cancer up to five years before any clinical signs of the disease, according to researchers. Cancer cells produce proteins called antigens that trigger the body to make antibodies against them: autoantibodies. Researchers at the University of Nottingham say they are developing a test that identifies the body's immune response to tumour-associated antigens (TAAs), as they are a good indicator of cancer. https://news.sky.com/story/blood-test-could-detect-breast-cancer-five-years-before-clinical-signs-11852901
