New Blood Test Rapidly Detects Pancreatic Cancer Signs

Researchers at UC San Diego have developed a test that can rapidly screen for signs of pancreatic cancer in a drop of blood. The new test, which shows promise for early detection of the disease, was a collaborative project led by NanoEngineering professor Michael Heller.  Providing test results in less than an hour, this new method could potentially detect cancer in early stages without the need for invasive surgical procedures.  Findings from the project were published in ACS Nano.
