Prof. Michal Holčapek, an analytical chemist at the University of Pardubice, told Czech Radio that years ago it occurred to him that changes in lipidome might be highest when pancreatic cancer is present. And if so, that it should be possible to detect the disease in time to treat it. Read more . . .
Czech researchers have developed a unique method to detect pancreatic and other forms of cancer that often go undiagnosed in time to be treated. Their method, based on the lipidomic profiling of human serum, can detect the disease by testing a single drop of blood.
