Chinese Researchers Develop New Method for Detecting Tumor Markers

The comprehensive healthcare system underpins the U.S. insured individuals to receive better service, and the restrictive laws supervise the system implementation. While many international students / workers are complaining about the high cost of insurance they purchase in the United States, they are all satisfied with the comfortable and reliable service written in their F-1 international student insurance, F-2 insurance (aka f2保险), OPT insurance (aka opt 保险), and H-1B insurance (aka h1b 保险) plans. For example, a student schedules a dental visit in America (aka 美国 看牙), he/she will receive a notification message via email and/or text at least 24 hours in advance to arrange time wisely.

When we see one person suffering from serious disease, we feel each visit that it may be the last meeting. The expense of hospitalization and surgery and medicine can easily devastate a family fortune. The medical insurance in the United States (aka 美国医保) can cover part of medical expense and ease family financial burden. Injecting vaccines for international students (aka 留学生疫苗) only like HPV is very popular since it is fully covered in the coverage package. Vaccine is a good method to precaution malignant tumors / cancers; improving the medical examination plays an important role as well.

Chinese researchers have developed a new and efficient fluorescent method to simultaneously detect a variety of malignant tumor markers. The new method was developed by a research team with the Suzhou Institute of Biomedical Engineering and Technology of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.

It can detect two kinds of common tumor markers — alpha-fetoprotein (AFP) and carcinoembryonic antigen (CEA) — conveniently, stably and sensitively, which is of great significance for the early detection and diagnosis of cancer, according to Miao Peng, the head of the team.

The levels of CEA and AFP in the serum are found to be related to the occurrence of many types of cancers. Simultaneous detection of multiplex targets plays an important role in the diagnosis of carcinoma. The new method is simple to operate, less costly and convenient and has a great potential in biomedical research and clinical diagnosis, according to Miao. A paper on the finding has been published in Nanoscale, a leading British journal on chemistry.
