Cancer cells may be detected in just seconds from blood samples, doctors from the National Kidney Transplant Institute (NKTI) says. Blood test based screening is more convenient, cost-effective and it can easily detect vitro cancerous cells.
Thanks to the newly invented IFinder Smart Cancer Screening test by Health Corporation, doctors can now advise individuals if they have cancer cells or even cancerous growth inside their bodies. An invention by Korean doctors, it can detect cancers of the stomach, colorectal, ovarian, prostate, breast, liver, pancreas and lung.
In a press conference, Dr Dante Dator ,Urologist ng NKTI confessed that he was one of those who benefitted from this technology and convinced the company to bring this to the Philippines to help Filipinos immediately find a cure of their cancers. This will likewise, arrest the growing numbers of Filipinos with cancers.
Cancer rates are high in the Philippines due to many Filipinos indulge in unhealthy lifestyles such as smoking, and live in several dirty environments. Dr. Dator urged the government to include this program as a Private-Public partnership initiative under the Universal Health Care law.
For this part, Mr Andrew JK Park, President ng KHealth Corporation that 90 percent of Koreans have benefitted from this screening technology.
Dr Chui Won Kim, founder of the screening test, says that individuals aged 40 years old and over can benefit from this. A report from the World Health Organization (WHO) says there are as many as 8.2 million deaths are related to cancers due to late detection. Park says there are several hospitals in the Philippines which are willing and eager to use this technology as part of their services (with reports from Agnes Barcelona, CNS)
