'Modern technology can detect cancer early'

Epigenetic sequencing nanotechnology can detect all types of cancers early through analyzing DNA and RNA for early recovering the patients sufferings from cancers.

Cancer specialists made the comment at a seminar  in Rajshahi  on Monday.

They also opined that the sub-type cancer can be detected through applying this technology and the latest treatment can be made easier in this case.

Department of Oncology of Barind Medical College and Hospital (BMCH) organised the seminar titled “Cancer Detection and Management through Using latest Technology” at its conference hall. Xing Cancer Care Australia and ASHRAI, Rajshahi supported the seminar.

During his keynote presentation, Professor Dr Paul Mainwaring, renowned Oncologist and Co-Founder of Xing Cancer Care, Australia, illustrated the aspects of early detection of cancer for early recovery side by side with reducing the rate of mortality.

Cancer claims the lives of millions across the world, and it is no different in Bangladesh, where a large number of people die every year from the deadly disease. However, we can reduce the death rate to some extent through using the latest technology, he added.

Head Professor Dr Dayem Uddin and Professor Sujit Kumar Vodro, Professor Gopal Chandra Sarker, Professor Rafiqul Alam and Professor ABM Golam Rabbani.

“A cancer patient can be cured if the disease is detected at an early stage. Epigenetic sequencing nanotechnology can very well serve the purpose,” said Prof Dayem Uddin as a co-key-note speaker, reports BSS.
