UR research could help detect rare cancer
Rochester, N.Y. -- University of Rochester researchers have developed a gene test to diagnose a rare bone marrow cancer they said is difficult to detect.
The test can help detect myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS), also known as pre-leukemia. It can be difficult to diagnose, and can often be confused with other illnesses.
MDS gained increased attention after Good Morning America anchor Robin Roberts was diagnosed with it in 2012.
