Ovarian Cancer Institute announces test for ovarian cancer
that is 100% accurate.
OCI scientists at the Georgia Institute of Technology have attained very promising results on their initial investigations of a new test for ovarian cancer. Using a new technique involving mass spectrometry of a single drop of blood serum, the test correctly identified women with ovarian cancer in 100 percent of the patients tested.
"Because ovarian cancer is a disease of relatively low prevalence, it’s essential that tests for it be extremely accurate. We believe we may have developed such a test,” said John McDonald, chief research scientist at the Ovarian Cancer Institute and professor of biology at Georgia Tech. The test itself was developed in collaboration with the research group of Facundo Fernandez, an associate professor in the School of Chemistry and Biochemistry.
