NanoNovus: May 8
Jack Uldrich: This article from the Miami Herald provides a good overview of nanotechnology’s ability (and limitations) to detect cancer at an early stage. On the positive side, nanotechnology is leading to the development and creation of new diagnostic technologies that can detect unique “biomarkers”–specific proteins that show up when a cancer is present.
On the down side, these biomarkers are not always either sensitive or specific to a single disease. This suggests that even if new diagnostic technologies are developed, they might not do that much good.
