According to a newly published study, researchers in Australia have formulated a 10-minute test that can detect the presence of cancer cells anywhere in the human body. The test works by identifying the presence of a unique DNA structure that forms when cancer cells are placed in water. Scientists around the world have been researching ways to identify cancer at earlier stages, as early detection is known to increase the success rate of therapeutic treatment and surgery. The 10-minute test has yet to be used on humans and large clinical trials are necessary to find how early cancer can be detected, but so far the signs are positive.
