Blood Test Detects Lung Cancer Early
Interview: John Robertson, MD, founder of Oncimmune,
Professor of surgery, University of Nottingham
A simple blood test soon may be the standard way to detect some cancers in their very early stages.
Oncimmune, a company inspired by research at the University of Nottingham in the UK, now is making blood tests for early stage lung cancer. Soon, such tests will be available for breast cancer.
Today, John Robertson, MD, founder of Oncimmune and Professor of surgery at the University of Nottingham, will meet with Sound Medicine's Kathy Miller, MD, to explain how blood tests can recognize cancer -- before a CT scan is able to identify it.
