Specificity double that of PET scans, according to presentation at 94th AATS Annual Meeting Researchers at the University of Louisville School of Medicine are using breath analysis to detect the presence of lung cancer. Preliminary data indicate that this promising noninvasive tool offers the sensitivity of PET scanning, and has almost twice the specificity of PET for distinguishing patients with benign lung disease from those with early stage cancer.

Two Breath Compounds May Be Associated With Larynx Cancer
2014-04-28 04:00:54

FECYT - Spanish Foundation for Science and Technology Researchers at the Rey Juan Carlos University and the Alcorcón Hospital (Madrid) have compared the volatile substances exhaled by eleven people with cancer of larynx, with those of another twenty healthy people. The results show that the concentrations of certain molecules, mainly ethanol and 2-butanone, are higher in individuals with carcinoma, therefore they act as potential markers of the disease. Human breath contains thousands...

2013-08-01 17:32:16

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online No longer the sole the domain of law enforcement, breathalyzers are being used more and more by scientists who want a faster, less invasive way to assess patients. According to a new report in the open-access journal PLOS ONE, researchers from University of California, Irvine have developed breathalyzer technology capable of determining the severity of bacterial and other infections. In the study, the California researchers worked...

redOrbit Staff & Wire Reports - Your Universe Online Chemists from the University of Pittsburgh (Pitt) have reportedly demonstrated sensor technology which could someday eliminate the need for glucose-related blood tests currently used to diagnose most diabetes patients. The blood tests are often followed by expensive and invasive methods required to monitor their conditions, the researchers said. However, they claim that their sensors could lead to cheaper and noninvasive methods...

Fingerprinting A Person's Breath
2013-04-04 11:15:39

Brett Smith for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online Doctors routinely use blood or urine samples to test for signs of illness or disease and a new study from a group of Swiss researchers indicates that a person´s breath could soon be added to that list. According to the study, which appeared in the open-access journal PLOS ONE, the researchers were also able to discriminate between individual breath signatures as if they were fingerprints. Previous research has shown that...

A new study published in BJS has demonstrated for the first time that a simple breath analysis could be used for colorectal cancer screening. The study is part of the "Improving Outcomes in Gastrointestinal Cancer" supplement. Cancer tissue has different metabolism compared to normal healthy cells and produces some substances which can be detected in the breath of these patients. Analysis of the volatile organic compounds (VOCs) linked to cancer is a new frontier in cancer screening....

In pilot study, authors recommend using larger cohort to validate results A pilot study, published in the October 2012 issue of the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer's (IASLC) Journal of Thoracic Oncology, showed that breath testing could be used to discriminate between benign and malignant pulmonary nodules. The study looked at 74 patients who were under investigation for pulmonary nodules and attended a referral clinic in Colorado between March 2009 and May 2010....
