  • The ability to diagnose the early onset of disease, rapidly, non-invasively and unequivocally has multiple benefits. These include the early intervention of therapeutic strategies leading to a reduction in morbidity and mortality, and the releasing of economic resources within overburdened health care systems. Some of the routine clinical tests currently in use are known to be unsuitable or unreliable. In addition, these often rely on single disease markers which are inappropriate when multiple… CONTINUE READING
