Blood Tests for Early Detection of Breast Cancer and Treatment Monitoring | 12 Day Croatia | Scoop.it

"Today at the 30th annual Miami Breast Cancer Conference, Emanuel F. Petricoin III, PhD discussed the development of new blood-based tests for both the treatment and early detection of breast cancer in his presentation, “The Use of Blood Tests in Breast Cancer for Early Detection and Treatment.” New technologies and techniques are in development to use blood samples to detect biological material in the blood that can differentiate a patient with cancer from one who does not have cancer."
