A new technique to treat lung cancer is being developed in Manchester. Cancer cells will be captured in te patients blood by special magnets. It's hoped, it could lead to better ways to treat patients. It comes as research from Cancer Research UK announces cases of the disease in women is the highest since records began despite a drop in smoking rates.
Lung cancer rates have hit the 20,000 mark say the charity, an increase of 22% soaring from around 14,200 cases diagnosed around 20 years ago.
The new technique is being presented at the Royal Society's Summer Science Exhibition this week by staff from Cancer Research UK Manchester Institute who have travelled to London.
