Blood biopsies offer early warning of cancer’s return. Tests that look for hundreds of tumor mutations may detect residual disease in patients after treatment. <a href="https://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2020/03/personalized-blood-biopsies-may-provide-signal-of-cancer-recurrence/"target="_blank"><strong>Read more.</strong></a>

Technique identifies T cells primed for certain allergies or infections: Researchers develop a method to isolate and sequence the RNA of T cells that react to a specific target. <a href="http://news.mit.edu/2019/t-cells-target-allergies-infections-1119" target="_blank"><strong>Read more.</strong></a></span>
Measuring chromosome imbalance could clarify cancer prognosis: A study of prostate cancer finds “aneuploid” tumors are more likely to be lethal than tumors with normal chromosome numbers. <a href="http://news.mit.edu/2019/aneuploidy-chromosome-imbalance-cancer-0513"target="_blank"><strong>Read more.</strong></a>
New optical imaging system could be deployed to find tiny tumors: Near-infrared technology pinpoints fluorescent probes deep within living tissue; may be used to detect cancer earlier. <a href="http://news.mit.edu/2019/near-infrared-optical-imaging-system-small-tumors-0307" target="_blank"><strong>Read more.</strong></a></span>
