Researchers at the Swiss University ETH Zurich developed a synthetic gene network that provides early cancer warnings. When implanted into a body, the genes monitor the level of calcium. As a highly regulated substance, any increase in the level of the mineral requires investigation and analysis. Early detection is the most important aspect of surviving cancer. The implant recognizes the four most common types of cancer – breast, lung, prostate and colon. It works via a network of human genes that monitor blood calcium levels. When necessary, the implant triggers the alert system. An artificial mole acts as a visible alert, growing only when the implant detects a certain level of calcium.
