Early detection of cancer from blood draw
Problem Eight million people die from cancer each year, and 90% of these deaths happen in cases where the cancer has spread throughout the body from the initial tumor site.1 In the early stages of cancer, tumor cells can shed from the primary mass and enter the bloodstream. Clinicians can glean important information about the tumor from these circulating...
