Finnish scientists have created a new test that quickly detects ovarian cancer in women. The use of combined diagnostics provided the fixation of the violation of the excess sugar level in the malignant neoplasm.
A group of specialists from the University of Turku proposed a new test for ovarian cancer damage to this organ. They took blood samples from the patients. Practice shows that the CA125 protein is mainly used as an oncological marker of the ovaries. This method is not recognized as highly effective in the prompt diagnosis of the disease, and at an early stage. Scientists have proposed a combination of the diagnostic process in analyzing the state of the protein structure of CA125 and the concentration of sugar in the lesions, which will improve the accuracy of diagnosing ovarian cancer. Through experiments, researchers have developed a test that identifies cancer from a blood sample.
The new technique makes it possible to diagnose a deadly disease in half an hour, and the accuracy of the created method exceeds the traditional one by 4.5 times. Specialists have planned for future periods the development of new tests, with the use of which it will be possible to diagnose other types of cancer.
