Biosensors Developed To Detect Whether Cancer Is Likely To Spread

At this stage the researchers present the work as a proof of concept, only demonstrated in cultured tumor cells and not in a living body. Further work on the sensor technology is needed before any in vivo studies can be completed. Nevertheless, this is an exciting roadmap for a future diagnostic device that could literally monitor a tumor in real time inside a human body, notifying doctors when the cancer is most likely to start spreading.
