UW Medical Breakthrough Could Detect Ovarian Cancer at Home
There are DNA and other methods of screening for certain types of cancers, including Ovarian, which strikes at least one out of every 70 women in America.
But now, researchers at the University of Washington have come up with a home test that can perhaps even go beyond some other testing methods.
Dr. Elizabeth Swisher of the UW School of Medicine in Seattle says the Megenta Project hopes to make genetic testing available in a home kit form, not requiring a trip to a doctor, which some patients cannot afford.
The patient would simply open the kit, spit into a small tube, seal it, and ship it off to be tested.
Currently there's a study being performed and they are looking for candidates. To find out more information, click here.
