A simple urine test, developed at the University of Surrey may greatly improve patient quality of life and has the potential to save the NHS in excess of £100 million every year. The test, developed by Dr Richard Morgan and Prof Hardev Pandha looks for traces of the EN -2 protein in the urine, a protein which has been found to exist in bladder and prostate cancer patients. The test will help in the early detection of bladder cancer and could allow doctors to diagnose and treat patients without using invasive and costly procedures, such as cystoscopies.
