New test for endometrial and ovarian cancers

(January 10, 2013 - Insidermedicine)

From Baltimore – Scientists have developed a new test for ovarian and endometrial cancers, according to a report published in Science Translational Medicine. The test, known as PapGene, examines 12 of the most frequently mutated genes in both cancers by using cervical fluid obtained during a routine Pap test. Researchers used PapGene on a group ovarian and endometrial cancer patients as well as healthy controls and found that the test was able to detect early and late-stage disease, and did not misdiagnose any of the healthy women.
