Doctors learned to identify cancer five years before its active phase

The French scientists of the IARC research center have learned to precisely predict the possibility of developing cancer with blood test.

In the course of research, doctors revealed that the presence of KIM-1 protein in the blood may indicate a predisposition to the development of cancer in approximately five years before its transition to the active phase.

The work was carried out in the area of the study of kidney cancer, but allegedly similar to the mechanism of work can be applicable for other onco-scabers. The patient has time to prevent or identify the disease at the earliest stage.

For medicine, such a discovery is important. The practice of kidney cancer studies shows that the detection of the disease at an early stage increases the level of survival among patients to 90%. The possibility of treating cancer in running stages is significantly lower.
