Researchers have developed a blood test for people with Hepatitis-B that may help predict which cases could develop into liver cancer. A 10 year study of 120 Hepatitis B patients found viral changes were present in the blood of all the patients who went on to develop cancer or major liver disease, up to eight years before their diagnosis.
So, this screening test could be invaluable to patients with Hepatitis B, the only problem is it's experimental at this point, but researchers at Johns Hopkins Kimmel Cancer Center are hoping this blood test could be used someday to identify which Hepatitis patients might be good candidates for early cancer prevention strategies.
