Humans are still far from defeating cancer. Early detection of cancer will decrease fatality from this disease. Traditional methods of identification of cancerous cells are mainly based on regular techniques used in biology, such as visual identification of maligant changes, cell growth analysis, specific ligand-receptor labeling, or genetic tests. After many years of research, these methods are still either insufficiently accurate or require a lengthy complicated analysis. It has been recently… CONTINUE READING
