    Novel diagnostic biomarkers for prostate cancer

    "We have developed a new non-invasive test that can detect circulating levels of cancer antibodies produced by immune cells when they encounter cancer cells using less than a drop of blood...We hope to validate novel diagnostic biomarkers capable of improving current screening approaches using this test. This will allow the accurate detection of prostate cancer and thereby enable early treatment with curative potential"
