A breath of hope from molecular fingerprints

Funded under: FP6-NEST


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.
