Brain Tumor Liquid Biopsy Detects DNA Methylation Profiles

Article from Clinical OMICs curated by Editor in Chief George Lundberg, MD, who notes: 

Researchers have recently demonstrated a noninvasive way to diagnose and classify brain tumors using a blood test. This promising “liquid biopsy” method detects cell-free tumor DNA in the blood and analyzes its chemical features—specifically, its “methylation patterns”—with high sensitivity and accuracy. Such a test could help guide treatment decisions.
