Nanotech imaging, molecular fingerprints and signatures hold promise

Abstract:
Scientists described three novel advances aimed at early detection of cancer - a critical key to controlling or curing the disease. Through analysis of molecular fingerprints or genetic signatures, scientists have devised technology to identify ovarian or prostate cancer. A third technology produces magnetic resonance portraits that define the extent of early metastasis in breast cancer. Researchers described advances in imaging technology, proteomic and metabolomic analysis that may lead to improved quality of life for patients with breast, ovarian or prostate cancer. The new technologies were presented at the today 95th Annual Meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research here today.
