Implant "Traps" Spreading Cancer Cells, University of Michigan Study

A small sponge-like implant that can mop up cancer cells as they move through the body has been developed by US researchers.

So far tested in mice, it is hoped the device could act as an early warning system in patients, alerting doctors to cancer spread.

The implant also seemed to stop rogue cancer cells reaching other areas where new tumours could grow.
