This little video and article goes a long way to demonstrate the power of the internet in the hands of a motivated individual. His family has been
affected by cancer and he wanted to do something about it, Good for him!
His test could save an un-told number of lives because its quicker, easier and more cost effective to administer, people get treatment sooner and this
would free up hospital budgets to be applied elsewhere.
Jack Andraka has created a pancreatic cancer test that is 168 times faster and considerably cheaper than the gold standard in the field. He has
applied for a patent for his test and is now carrying out further research at Johns Hopkins University in the US city of Baltimore.
Lets hope he gets the patent and doesn't end up being bought out by the Pharm' companies or "persuaded" to stop pursuing his test.
