Scientists unveil new blood test to detect pancreatic cancer
Scientists unveiled a test for detecting pancreatic cancer in less than a drop of blood. The diagnostic method is fast, cheap and ultra-sensitive, and can be adapted to test for other diseases whose fingerprints are detectable in blood, as per the journal Nature Biomedical Engineering.

In a pilot study, the new test was correct more than 85 percent of the time in distinguishing pancreatic cancer patients from healthy people and people suffering from pancreatitis -- a non-cancerous inflammation.
