Researchers Develop Lab-on-a-Chip for Early Detection of Lung Cancer

Researchers Develop Lab-on-a-Chip for Early Detection of Lung Cancer

Scientists have been laboring to detect cancer and a host of other diseases in people using promising new biomarkers called "exosomes." Indeed, Popular Science magazine named exosome-based cancer diagnostics one of the 20 breakthroughs that will shape the world this year. Exosomes could lead to less invasive, earlier detection of cancer, and sharply boost patients' odds of survival. [More]
