    New blood test could detect different types of cancer even in early stages

    “This is a very promising study,” said Dr. Kazuaki Takabe, the Alfiero Foundation in breast oncology at the Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center in Buffalo

    A new blood test shows promise for detecting many types of cancer, even in the early stages of the disease, according to a new study. In the study, researchers found that the test could detect 10 types of cancer and that it was 80 to 90% accurate for some cancer types. However, much more research is needed before doctors will be able to use the test on their patients, experts say.
