‘I’m cancer-free thanks to early detection’

Diamonds could help detect pancreatic, brain cancer "We've magnetised the atoms within nano-diamonds and this makes them light up on an MRI scan," lead author Ewa Raj said. If cancer is present, these will provide a "lighthouse" on the MRI scan. They "target certain types of cancers," lead researcher Professor David Reilly said. Researchers want to use their discovery to target cancers that are hard to detect in their early stage before they are life threatening."

Diamonds could play a vital role in helping to detect cancers in their earliest stages by acting as a lighthouse on a MRI scan, Sydney researchers say.

Decency and common sense WIN over avarice |  A two-time cancer-surviving grandmother from Brisbane has won her "David and Goliath" battle against a US biotech firm that wanted to patent the BRCA-1 cancer gene.  Myriad Genetics had argued it held the patent over the BRCA-1 and BRCA-2 genes which, if present, dramatically increase a woman's chance of developing breast and ovarian cancer.  But Yvonne D'Arcy, 69, argued the genes existed in nature, so were discovered rather than invented.
