    The Cantest Framework: Evaluating Diagnostic Strategies for Early Cancer Detection
    Author(s): Iaccarino Daniela*

    Early cancer detection is a public and policy goal, with primary care being the best place to do it. This has sparked a desire for better cancer early detection tests, preferably ones that can be used in primary care settings. The development of novel biomarkers and other tests, on the other hand, has mostly benefitted prognostication and surveillance of patients who have already been diagnosed with the disease. In contrast, enhancing the precision and timeliness of cancer diagnosis in cancer patients who arrive to primary care with symptoms has yielded modest advantages. A broader set of superior testing could be game-changing. This ‘grand challenge’ of improving early cancer diagnosis has been recognized by a wide range of stakeholders including policymakers, purchasers, health care provi.. View More»
