Scoperta nell’individuazione dei tumori, un innovativo test del sangue

E’ stato ideato un innovativo test del sangue per scovare 4 dei tumori più temibili, seno, colon, polmoni e ovaie, quando sono ancora in fase molto precoce e asintomatica.

Per ora si tratta ancora di un prototipo, ma è un test unico nel suo genere perché le biopsie liquide oggi in uso o in fase di sperimentazione sono in grado di trovare solo i tumori in stadio avanzato e di segnalare l’andamento delle terapie in corso.

Quello appena presentato sulla rivista Science Translational Medicine, invece, promette di scovare tumori in fase ancora estremamente precoce, studiando a fondo il Dna circolante nel sangue (che viene sequenziato ben 30 mila volte per ogni test) alla ricerca di qualsiasi mutazione del cancro nota, per i tipi di tumore precedentemente specificati.

Quella messa a punto dal team di Victor Velculescu della Johns Hopkins University, sarebbe una profonda innovazione in campo diagnostico. Il test alle prime sperimentazioni è risultato in grado di scovare in media la metà dei tumori in fase precoce e quasi tutti quelli in stadio avanzato; inoltre non ha dato dei “falsi positivi”.

E’ facile trovare le mutazioni del cancro se sai già cosa stai cercando, precisa lo scienziato: “per questo la nostra sfida è stata sviluppare un test del sangue che potesse predire la presenza probabile di un tumore senza conoscere in partenza le mutazioni genetiche presenti nel singolo paziente”, conclude Velculescu.

  4. This time last year, on a steamy night inside the Allianz Arena, the great and the good in this Bayern Munich team wobbled in a way we have never seen before. Wenger in the lions’ den as Arsenal must win in the hardest of places

  5. The youngster has already been compared to legendary French striker Thierry Henry and Silva can understand why a number of the continent’s top clubs are thought to be monitoring his progress. French starlet Kylian Mbappe has ‘something special’ according to Monaco team-mate Bernardo Silva

  6. Excellent blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers? I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything. Would you propose starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m completely confused .. Any recommendations? Many thanks!
