Blood test to determine pancreatic cancer early in the works

Detecting deadly pancreatic cancer earlier could save millions of lives. Researchers are in the early phases of new tests that might be able to do just that using a simple blood test.

Right now there aren't any early warning symptoms or tests to screen the cancer early enough for treatment to work.

A new blood test could detect different sets of proteins only produced by cancer cells.

The new technique appears promising, detecting pancreatic cancer in four out of five patients.
