SCC researcher develops faster and more personalised cancer treatment
Anders Ståhlberg is developing new ways to discover cancer with blood and urine samples. The samples are easy to collect and can therefore be collected by a nurse instead of conducting expensive MRI- or radiographies for the patient.
Anders Ståhlberg and his research group at Sahlgrenska Cancer Center is developing a faster and more individually adapted cancer treatment. Anders' research is collaborating with the health care in order to make sure that the new test are conducted properly from the beginning.
With the new delevoped methods they search for biomarkers in body fluids, for example blood or urine, which can tell if a person has cancer or not. The tests can also be used to show how well the patient is responding to the treatment.
