Carl Berg and “a new test” for risk of prostate cancer


According to this story on the Bloomberg.com web site, a West Coast billionaire called Carl Berg “is investing hundreds of millions of dollars” to develop a better test for prostate cancer and bring it to market.

He is doing this through a company called Berg LLC, which, according to the above-mentioned story, is working on a new blood sample-based test that would be far more accurate that the PSA test.

Unfortunately, at this time, we can find no information either in this story or on the Berg LLC web site that gives us any meaningful information about how such a test might work. Furthermore, “Nothing is imminent”, according to Mr. Berg himself. So we are merely letting you know about one more company that is working on the problem — which is, of course, “a good thing”.
