A Ray of Hope with Early Detection of Stomach Cancer

Stomach cancer is usually diagnosed when it has crossed the initial stages. It is the deadliest of all types. To solve this mystery of stomach cancer researchers from University of Adelaide has showed a new hope for the early diagnose of stomach cancer. This is possible with the identification of the four new biomarkers found in the blood of human cancer patients. The extensive report has been published in the journal Biochimica et Biophysica Acta. The changes in four new nutrients will help to determine the velocity of the cancer at an initial stage. This will help medical practitioners to treat well and save their patients. The associate Professor Peter Hoffmann, the leader and Director of the University's Adelaide Proteomics Centre explains, “Stomach cancer is typically without symptoms in the early stages so most cancers are not diagnosed until the later stages, and the survival rates are therefore low. Endoscopic investigations are invasive and expensive and most are generally not conducted until the cancer is at an advanced stage.”
