Development of Early Diagnostic Kit for Lung Cancer
Lung cancer is the main cause of death among cancer related mortalities. The main reasons for the high mortality rate are lack of early diagnosis and the lack of effective treatment.
The aim of our project is to identify serum based biomarkers which, in contrast to the current methods in use, can lead to the early diagnosis of lung cancer. We, therefore, aim the discovery of biomarkers specific for lung cancer that can be detected in serum months to years before onset of clinical disease. Our early diagnostic kit will measure the level of biomarkers which are discovered by our group.
