They develop a biosensor that allows detection of oral cancer with a home test

However, since it occurs in one of the most accessible areas of the human body, it is one of the Better detection and higher survival rates: 90% of patients with tumors up to two centimeters are alive after five years.

In this high rate, early detection of the disease plays a fundamental role and that is where the study published by a group of researchers from the University of Florida comes in handy. In the field of biosensor, the team led by doctor Ming’an Jian has proposed A test kit with a biosensor that allows anyone to do it at home and get results quicklyAccording to Interesting Engineering Medium.

one in the medical industry Different types of tests to detect this type of cancer, but most of them need to be done in a laboratory by professionals and are expensive. Researchers attribute this type of testing “low sensitivity and lack of specificity”, for which they consider a system necessary more accessible and it allows immediate results,
