Scientists have discovered that a marker in the blood could help predict the risk that a person will develop kidney cancer. Supported by Cancer Research UK, the IARC and the NIH, the work used samples taken as part of the EPIC study to examine the blood of 190 people who went on to develop kidney cancer, compared to 190 controls who did not. They found that measuring levels of a protein molecule in the blood, called KIM-1, could indicate whether a person was more likely to develop kidney cancer over the following 5 years.
