New Tool for Detecting GI Cancers

Researchers at the Mayo Clinic are working on developing a stool DNA test to determine the presence of cancerous and precancerous cells. The team reported that the tool detected cancerous cells in 68% of patients with known tumors, and there were no false positives in the control group. The test screened successfully for 6 kinds of cancer throughout the length of the digestive tract. It also identified precancerous cells in 61% of patients. Researchers estimate another 5 years until the test can be placed on the market. Medpage Today, June 4, 2009
