Cancer: Life-changing blood test could pinpoint who is 43% more likely to die from cancer

Furthermore, the study added one key caveat, in that these findings were taken from a comparably small group and the participants were from a single city.

As a result, these findings may not apply to other areas and other populations who may have higher or lower levels of prostasin in their blood.

Commenting on the research, Diabetes UK’s Jessica Brown said: “We know there is a connection between diabetes and some types of cancer, and this study suggests levels of a particular protein, called prostasin, is linked to both conditions.

“Gaining a better understanding of the changes inside the body that may put people at risk from diabetes and cancer will help scientists find ways to protect people from these serious conditions, but there’s still much to discover.”
