Cancer Detection and Diagnosis Research

Published on AidPage by IDILOGIC on Jun 24, 2005

Examples of funded projects...

Screening and early detection research includes development of more sensitive and specific detection techniques in asymptomatic individuals; developing tests to identify individuals with a genetic predisposition to specific cancers; assessment of availability of, access to, and use of these techniques in the community; development of community outreach methods to encourage all segments of the population to take advantage of available services; and collection of cancer surveillance data to assess effectiveness of cancer interventions. Cancer diagnosis and prognosis research depends on interactions among clinicians, basic researchers, and experts in study design to ensure that new diagnostic and prognostic techniques are evaluated efficiently and effectively for more rapid transfer to clinical application. Diagnosis research includes development and evaluation of better methods for monitoring the response to therapy and detecting the recurrence of tumors earlier; utilizing the advances in the development of sensitive molecular biological techniques; and developing more sensitive imaging techniques, including the use of immunodiagnostic reagents and functional imaging.
