An experimental blood test may one day be able to detect a range of diseases including cancer and multiple sclerosis, based on signatures of DNA from dying cells, researchers said Monday. The work, described in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, a peer-reviewed US journal, is still in its early stages, but opens up vast possibilities, the study authors said. "We view this is as a breakthrough with huge potential, but it will not be realized very soon," said co-author Yuval Dor, a professor at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem.
