    Mathematical framework for activity-based biomarkers

    Mathematical framework for activity-based biomarkers
    Our work examining the use of activity-based biomarkers for early cancer detection has been published in PNAS.Summary | The discovery of cancer at an early stage improves treatment outcomes, yet cancer detection thresholds based on blood biomarkers shed by small tumors lack predictivity. We develop a mathematical framework to explore the use of activity-based biomarkers for […]
