Simple Tests for Oral Cancer to Be Out Soon

It has been reported that a simple test to detect oral cancer has been found. A simple saliva test would now help the medical practitioners to detect oral cancer at an early stage. A team of researchers of Michigan State University is working towards creating the saliva test which would help in detecting the oral cancer.

Lansing-area dental benefits firm has joined hands with Michigan State University for creating the saliva test. It has been informed that about 100 to 200 patients would be recruited by the researchers. These patients would help the researchers in inventing tests for detecting oral cancer at an early stage.

Barry Wenig from Michigan State University was reported as saying, “Conversely, a simple test would allow us to identify those patients with malignant lesions and get them into treatment quicker”. It has been informed that the survival rate of oral cancer patients is quite low.

It is hoped that the invention of the test would help the medical practitioners to diagnose oral cancer timely. Through the early diagnosis, effective treatment to the patients could also be provided. It is believed that the saliva test would be simple as patients would be required to just spit in a cup.
