Blood proteins may be able to predict risk of cancer more than seven years before it is diagnosed

Proteins linked to cancer can start appearing in people’s blood more than seven years before they’re diagnosed. In the future, it’s possible doctors could use these early warning signs to find and treat cancer much earlier than they’re able to today.

Researchers develop new way to identify people with new-onset diabetes who are at risk of pancreatic cancer

The new method could help people with new-onset diabetes at high-risk of developing pancreatic cancer to be identified more accurately so that they can be monitored.

Oxford lung cancer early detection trial reaches 400 participants

The SCOOT study seeks current and former smokers across England to provide blood samples for ongoing research aiming to improve lung cancer diagnosis.

£1.7 million for vaccine to prevent lung cancer

Oxford and UCL researchers seeking to create the world’s first vaccine to prevent lung cancer in people at high risk of the disease have been granted up to £1.7 million from Cancer Research UK and the CRIS Cancer Foundation.

Funding to compare imaging modalities for liver cancer detection
