In the framework of the “Early Cancer Detection with Lasers” collaboration (ECDL) the King Saud University (KSU) and the Oncology Centre of the King Saud University Medical City (KSUMC) are collaborating with the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München. Within this framework, a larger quantity of blood samples has now left the laboratories of Saudi Arabia and reached Germany. The international ECDL project is designed to use infrared laser spectroscopy to detect molecules in blood that indicate cancer. KSU and KSUMC are the international partners in this project. Its researchers are thus helping to develop new methods for the early detection of cancer using pioneering technologies.
