Srinidi Mohan, an associate professor of pharmacy at UNE, has made an important cancer discovery!  A simple blood test for aggressive breast cancers.

According to the KJ, Mohan made the discover while doing research on nutritional supplements.  He had never studied cancers before discovering how a molecule could be used to detect aggressive breast cancers.

The specific cancers, estrogen negative and triple negative breast cancer, are often a death sentence when discovered, because they are almost never detected early.  50,000 to 60,000 women a year are diagnosed with these aggressive cancers.

Mohan has a patent pending on his research and is very close to a breakthrough that could produce a simple blood test to detect the breast cancers.
