Protein chips could detect cancer earlier

Abstract:
Biochip development, which peaked two years ago during the national anthrax scare, has begun paying unexpected dividends, as research work in the area yields a new breed of "protein chips" that could aid in the early detection of cancer, Alzheimer's disease and HIV. Nanosphere Inc., which hopes to integrate the system into desktop products within a year, said the technology exhibits about 1 million times more sensitivity than conventional methods in the detection of prostate-specific antigen, a protein linked to prostate cancer.
