Molecular markers for early diagnosis of breast and ovarian cancer

Scientists from Ludwig Institute of Cancer Research and Lviv Regional Oncology center//, Ukraine has developed a new simple and affordable blood test for early detection of breast and ovarian cancer.

However, they did not find the proteins in women without cancer. "Attempts to find a single reliable early protein, or 'marker', for breast or ovarian cancer diagnosis have not been very successful," says LICR's Serhiy Souchelnytskyi, senior author of the study.

"However, the use of multiple markers clearly improves the diagnostic ability. There are indications that these markers may also one day be useful for prognosis of the disease course," he said.

Early detection is crucial for effective treatment, particularly for ovarian cancer.

"If we can use a simple blood screen to identify this cancer at a very early stage, we can almost certainly make a positive impact on patient health and survival," says Kunle Odunsi from the Roswell Park Cancer Institute in the US.

One of the recent concerns plaguing the field of cancer study or Oncology is the increasing number of women who are being diagnosed with Cancer. It is estimated that the number of cervical cancer deaths in women in India is likely to rise to 79,000 by the year 2010, while the number of deaths due to breast cancer and oral cancer would rise to 59,000 and 53,000 respectively. Whi le breast cancer is the most common cancer among women, cervical cancer comes a close second and is a leading cause of cancer-related death in women in underdeveloped countries.
