Genetic test can predict whether eye cancer will spread

While melanoma of the eye is fairly rare, it can be deadly once it spreads to other parts of the body. Scientists at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis have developed a genetic test that can accurately determine whether eye cancer will spread, aiming to help ocular oncologists diagnose high risk patients and get them the treatments they need. In a study of 459 patients with ocular melanoma, the researchers' test accurately diagnosed whether tumors would spread 97% of the time. Report
