Texas Cancer Center to Study New Blood Test

A blood test so sensitive that it can spot a single cancer cell lurking among a billion healthy ones is moving one step closer to being available at your doctor's office.
Boston scientists who invented the test and health care giant Johnson & Johnson announced Monday that they are joining forces to bring it to market. The University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston and three other big cancer centers also will start studies using the experimental test this year.
Stray cancer cells in the blood mean that a tumor has spread or is likely to, many doctors believe. A test that can capture such cells has the potential to transform care for many types of cancer, especially breast, prostate, colon and lung.
Initially, doctors want to use the test to try to predict what treatments would be best for each patient's tumor and find out quickly if they are working.
"This is like a liquid biopsy" that avoids painful tissue sampling and may give a better way to monitor patients than periodic imaging scans, said Dr. Daniel Haber, chief of Massachusetts General Hospital's cancer center and one of the test's inventors.
Ultimately, the test may offer a way to screen for cancer besides the mammograms, colonoscopies and other less-than-ideal methods used now.
"There's a lot of potential here, and that's why there's a lot of excitement," said Dr. Mark Kris, lung cancer chief at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York. He had no role in developing the test, but Sloan-Kettering is one of the sites that will study it this year.
"Early detection of the cancer will improve the chances to cure the cancer and also improve the prognosis of the cancer," said Dr. Naveena Allada of Texas Oncology and Baylor Irving.
Many people have their cancers diagnosed through needle biopsies. These often do not provide enough of a sample to determine what genes or pathways control a tumor's growth. Or the sample may no longer be available by the time the patient gets sent to a specialist to decide what treatment to prescribe.

Mel Gibson: ’I’ve got a little bit of a temper’

"I had never heard of Mel Gibson until that day in Tampa (me by the pool in Tampa), while working for George Steinbrenner, when I was told "You look just like "Tim".  Didn't know about Mel Gibson's "Tim" or Arthur Finkelstein, the Republican employed "character assassin"! Now I know about both."  Steve Harris
PS - I was only fired once by George and was back at work for him the next morning!  RIP - Alfred Manuel "Billy" Martin, Jr. and George Michael Steinbrenner III
