“in one drop of blood 13 types of cancers can be diagnosed early”
those test should be run on the whole population on a yearly basis.
“Early diagnosis and early treatment are the most effective methods to improve prognosis.”
“Toshiba Corp. has developed technology to detect 13 types of cancer from a single drop of blood with 99 percent accuracy, the company announced Monday.
Toshiba developed the diagnosis method together with the National Cancer Center Research Institute and Tokyo Medical University, and hopes to commercialize it in “several years” after starting a trial next year.
The method could be used to treat cancer in its early stage, it said.
The method is designed to examine the types and concentration of microRNA molecules secreted in blood from cancer cells.
“Compared to other companies’ methods, we have an edge in the degree of accuracy in cancer detection,
the time required for detection and the cost,” Koji Hashimoto, chief research scientist at Toshiba’s Frontier Research Laboratory, told a press briefing.
The test will be used to detect gastric, esophageal, lung, liver, biliary tract, pancreatic, bowel, ovarian, prostate, bladder and breast cancers as well as sarcoma and glioma.
Toshiba has developed a chip and a small device that can conduct the diagnosis in less than two hours. A blood test using it is expected to cost ¥20,000 (164€
/ 182$) or less, it said.
It is possible that the device will be used in health checkups, the company said.
In its five-year business strategy from April 2019, Toshiba has positioned medical businesses, including genome analysis and cell diagnosis, among key growth pillars along with automation, batteries and digital solutions using artificial intelligence.”
