Researchers at the Yale University School of Medicine have discovered, survivin, a molecule that helps cancer cells evade the body's defenses which normally pushes abnormal cells to self-destruct Survivin is not found in normal tissue, but is expressed in most common cancers, including lung, colon, pancreas, prostate and breast cancers. The researchers anticipate the molecule may be used to detect bladder cancer in urine.
Scientists at Australia's Sydney Centre for Reproductive Health have developed Veda-Scope, a new Pap smear device.
