Oncology: to Identify as Early as Possible
We’ve already wrote about a test-system for very early cancer detection, created by scientists from Epigene nanocenter SIGMA Novosibirsk. It may be reminded that the project concerns Epigene test-system base on DNA analysis. The tumor does not develop if certain genes are active (oncosuppressor genes), which produce substances inhibiting the growth of tumor. However knockout of these genes may help detect oncogenic processes. Thanks to the Epigene system the knock-out oncosupressor gene may be found with a high accuracy, enabling very early detection of a cancer.
This test system is internationally acknowledged. Approbation of its basic technology in Japan has been recently completed. The test was performed at one of the largest biotechnology manufacturers in the Land of the Rising Sun.
