Hi All,

I saw this Article by NBCF and thought it was interesting, how fantastic would it be to develop a blood test instead of tissue biopsies for detection!!!

    Oh wouldn't it be fantastic.  Blood tests are so common now when we go the GP - to detect signs of cancer in your normal check ups.  Yes.

    Wouldn't that be absolutely amazing - maybe no chemo or rads.  And have you seen the little tumour robots they're looking at: https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2018/02/180212112000.htm
