Cancer studies focus on early detection

Abstract:
In recent years the National Cancer Institute has funneled tens of millions of dollars into early detection research. A $144 million program to fund nanotechnology and cancer research will go largely toward searching for new ways to catch cancers early.

"As you begin to look in detail at the genetic makeup of a disease as it evolves, you can see the disease quite a bit before there are any clinical symptoms," says James Heath, a California Institute of Technology chemist who studies systems for early cancer detection. "Can we develop a diagnostic test that you would do on a really regular basis, even in the home, to catch this?"
