January 7, 2019 – Clinical trial to develop breath test for multiple cancers

UK researchers have recently launched a new clinical trial to develop a breath test that could help detect multiple cancer types. This technology could help doctors detect and diagnose cancers earlier by measuring volatile organic compounds (VOCs) through breath biopsy. Depending on conditions, cells can release different patterns of VOCs, and this trial sets out to evaluate if this tool can differentiate between patients with and without various cancer types.This trial will start off with patients with esophageal and stomach cancer and then expand to more cancer types, and is estimated to complete in December 2021.
