BMBF promotes the search for other tumor markersThe prospective validation of these markers in an independent patient group and the search for the simplest and most reliable methods of analysis is now the goal of the project by the Federal Ministry of sponsored Education and Research titled ‘Molecular Diagnostics 17q In which the university hospitals of Bonn, sseldorf, rzburg and Heidelberg and the German Cancer Research Centre in Heidelberg , under the coordination of Dr. Attend Stefan Pfister..Parent should aware see their children’s the health of eyes and a physician if they notice any changes For instance if a child has cross-eyed, it should bring the child by a pediatric ophthalmologist.
