Russian scientists have developed a new method for the early diagnosis of cancer by laser nano-technology to complete the analysis from sample to only 1 minute, and does not require the patient puncture, very simple, the accuracy rate of up to 85%.
The Institute chief researcher Vladimir Meilie Beijing introduced, existing diagnostic methods are based on the hydrodynamic radius of red blood cells in the blood sedimentation rate indirect measurement of cancer-related proteins, initially identified the subject is suffering from cancer . The researchers found that because nanoparticles can circulate freely between different liquids by means of laser spectroscopy to measure urine related nanoparticle radius, can provide the basis for the diagnosis of cancer.
Meliet Jing said: “We have developed a special laser spectrometer for measuring nanoparticles urine test after full argument, we determined the normal radius of these particles, if more than this range, then the subject. the subject may be suffering from cancer. through clinical trials, the method of cancer detection accuracy rate over 85%, such a simple method for the early diagnosis is concerned, this result is very satisfactory. ”
Meliet Beijing noted that the study is the first hospital in Novosibirsk in cooperation, the hospital has used a new method for hundreds of patients with bladder cancer urine samples were analyzed.Experts believe that the way to do just one minute from sampling to analysis, and does not require the patient puncture, very easy.
Currently, the institute has the Russian Patent Office patent applications, hoping to obtain funding related businesses for follow-up research projects and commercialization. Meliet Jing said: “Our ultimate goal is to produce an inexpensive and easy to use early cancer diagnostic products, in the future we will be able to buy it in pharmacies, just as easy to buy tonometer.”
