A blood test for breast cancer 5 years before signs
A blood test could detect breast cancer up to five years before any clinical signs of the disease, according to researchers. Cancer cells produce proteins called antigens that trigger the body to make antibodies against them: autoantibodies. Researchers at the University of Nottingham say they are developing a test that identifies the body's immune response to tumour-associated antigens (TAAs), as they are a good indicator of cancer. https://news.sky.com/story/blood-test-could-detect-breast-cancer-five-years-before-clinical-signs-11852901

Hearts from Stem Cells
Hearts created from stem cells could make transplants obsolete. Australia has developed a human heart using a 3-D process developed by Israeli scientists. The prototype is the size of a rabbit heart with blood vessels, ventricles and chambers. It did not have a heart beat however scientists believe the new heart replacement process will make heart transplants obsolete. https://neweconomy.media/2019/07/22/hearts-created-from-stem-cells-could-make-transplants-obsolete/
