Brain Tumor To Be Diagnosed With Blood Test

A new method has been developed to diagnose brain tumors that affect hundreds of thousands of people worldwide every year. Thanks to the method discovered in the UK, brain cancer can be detected only with a blood test.

”Brain cancer can be diagnosed with a blood test.”

The test, which is claimed to be a breakthrough in cancer treatment, was developed by the Brain Tumor Research Center at Imperial University of London in England.

The blood test called “Trinetra-glio” traces cancerous “brain” cells that break off from the brain tumor and enter the bloodstream.

By examining these cells under a microscope, brain cancer can be diagnosed.

British experts, who call the method “liquid biopsy”, emphasize that a biopsy of cancer cells in the blood is equivalent to taking a sample from a tumor.

Scientists point out that brain tumors, which are fatal even if they spread to other parts of the body, are extremely difficult to detect.

The results of the study were published in the International Journal of Cancer Medicine.

Scientists say the ability to diagnose brain tumors with a simple blood test could save tens of thousands of lives every year.

Studies on the reliability of the method are ongoing. The blood test is expected to be available within two years.
