Eiwitten ontdekt die kunnen helpen bij
het ontdekken van eierstokkanker
The search for a specific protein that could help diagnose ovarian cancer in its early
stages has for years eluded researchers who are seeking a reliable and accurate test for
the disease. Instead of searching for a single protein, researchers at the University of
Pittsburgh School of Medicine used a new technology to analyze a large number of proteins,
or potential biomarkers, from a very small sample of serum from women with ovarian cancer.
They identified a combination of several biomarkers that could help detect the disease
much earlier than it is currently being diagnosed, according to findings.
Oude chemotherapie methode zorgt voor
meer overlevenden bij eierstokkanker
A 50-year-old method for delivering chemotherapy directly into the abdomen is making a
comeback as investigators have found that it increases survival - by more than a year - in
some women with advanced ovarian cancer.
