Blood proteins predict cancer up to 7 years early

The Guardian May 15, 2024, 11:00 AM UTC

Summary: Proteins in blood can predict cancer up to seven years in advance. University of Oxford researchers analyzed 44,000 samples, identifying 618 proteins linked to 19 cancer types. Some proteins could detect cancer years earlier, aiding in new treatments. Another study found 40 blood proteins influencing cancer risk. Early detection offers treatment opportunities. Further research is needed to utilize these findings effectively in cancer prevention and treatment.
