Breath Test for Breast Cancer

Joerg Lahann with the University of Michigan has received the funding to start developing this device that will use nanotechnology to detect breast cancer through the breath.

A woman would breathe into an over-the-counter device and cancer-indicating metabolites would be attracted into the nanopockets, causing the pored surface to fill and become dense. Then, an electrical charge would be applied so that the straight particles would bend, ejecting the metabolites so that multiple tests could be done in the same device. The metabolites could then be detected through a change in conductance or optically.


Good news for early detection.

An ovarian cancer test will determine if a woman has ovarian cancer, which is a tumor on the ovaries. These tests are very accurate and the sooner a woman finds out she has ovarian cancer, the sooner the cancer can be treated. Women who have ovarian cancer in their family, should consider an ovarian cancer test because the disease is known to be inherited.
