A breath of hope from molecular fingerprints

Funded under: FP6-NEST

Abstract

Diagnosis of many medical conditions may be possible through breath testing, but technological and scientific barriers are slowing progress towards this goal. OPTICAL NOSE intends to tackle them head-on through two complementary strands of investigation - one into advanced midinfrared fibre-laser sources and sensitive spectroscopic detection methods, the other into the relationship between breath composition and the progression of colorectal cancer and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.
