Finding new and specific biomarkers for prostate cancer can improve cancer detection and overall patient outcomes. The increasing knowledge of multi-omics has great potential for prostate cancer research. Several biomarker candidates have been identified in urine
Endometrial cancer is the most frequently diagnosed malignancy of the female genital tract and the sixth most common cancer in women globally. Finding a simple, non-invasive test that identifies endometrial cancer effectively could transform the way the disease is detected and improve patient care.
Vaccines play a critical role in protecting people against disease. HPV vaccination is primarily used for young girls, but is also recommended for boys. This blog explains the potential of HPV vaccination in reducing HPV-related cancers for girls and boys.
DNA methylation-based biomarkers have shown potential in disease detection and monitoring . This blog highlights areas in which DNA methylation could support cancer research and examples of biomarkers that are being investigated for various cancer types. Abnormal DNA methylation is common in cancer...
Urine as a liquid biopsy is attractive in the field of gynecological cancer research. Urine in conjunction with other diagnostic tools could help screen for these diseases more quickly and accurately, allowing treatment to start earlier, especially during a time where healthcare systems are stressed, but even beyond.
On International Day of Women and Girls in Science, Novosanis celebrates all women that contribute to this field. Read our blog, where we highlight the work of key women scientists as well as share some insights into our team!
Cancer screening rates have significantly dropped due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Alternative sampling methods are essential to continue healthcare practices in these challenging times. Urine as a sample type has shown great potential especially for cervical cancer screening
Recent research has shown that volatile organic compounds (VOCs), a group of small molecule metabolites, that are continuously generated in the human body can act as biomarkers in cancer detection. Distinct urinary VOC patterns have been associated with different cancer types, as well as cancer stages.
Everybody pees, you knew that. On average an adult produces 6.3 cups of urine a day ( 1 ). Urine is an easily accessible body fluid, and collection is quick, and can be performed independently. As a result, urine is increasingly becoming attractive in monitoring and detecting various diseases . We...
