Dentists develop saliva test for lung cancer

Dentists develop saliva test for lung cancer | ADA NSW Weekly News Listening | Scoop.it

LOS ANGELES, USA: Dental researchers have developed a novel technology that can detect mutations characteristic of lung cancer in saliva. In a series of tests, the researchers were able to demonstrate that detecting such mutations in saliva using the new method was as effective as testing with plasma. Thus, they believe it could be a noninvasive, cost-effective and rapid alternative to conventional test approaches.

OPPORTUNITY:The new technology, called electric field-induced release and measurement (EFIRM), was developed at the University of California, Los Angeles. According to the researchers, it allows for rapid testing of a patient's saliva for epidermal growth factor receptor gene mutation, an indicator of lung cancer.
