Circulating Cell-Free Nucleosomes Biomarkers Confirmed for Cancer Blood Tests

Studies have shown substantially improved overall survival among individuals screened for colorectal cancer (CRC), which is explained by diagnosis of early stages and prevention of CRC by endoscopic removal of precancerous lesions. More...

The dark purple (center) is lymphocytes (part of a normal lymph node). Surrounding the lymphocytes and extending into the surrounding fat (top of image) is ductal breast carcinoma (Photo courtesy of Michael Bonert / Wikimedia).

Artificial Intelligence Achieves Near-Human Performance in Image Analysis

A research team has developed an artificial intelligence (AI) method that trains computers to interpret pathology images. In a recent test of the method developed to examine images of lymph nodes, human complemented with computer analyses together identified breast cancer with 99.5% accuracy. More...

PCR Better at Identifying Breast Tumor Subtypes than Immunohistochemistry

A recently published study suggested that a RT-qPCR (reverse transcription quantitative real-time polymerase chain reaction) assay was superior to classical immunohistochemistry for subtyping breast tumors. More...
