Scientists have taken the first step toward developing a method for detecting certain kinds of cancer simply by analyzing the cells that are shed daily in bodily fluids.They have shown that with a standard test, they can pick out a few aberrant genes indicative of cancer from among a large number of mostly normal cells.The finding is expected to lead to a simple new type of cancer test that could find cancers early enough to treat or cure them.It is the outgrowth of a decade of accumulating progress in understanding the molecular biology of cancer cells.
