Screening of Gastric Cancer via Breath volatile organic compounds by Hybrid Sensing Approach

Project description

Breathing new life into gastric cancer diagnostics

Early-stage diagnosis of gastric cancer is associated with a high probability of cure. However, the lack of reliable non-invasive screening tools is hindering progress, especially in Eastern Europe and Latin America. The EU-funded VOGAS project is developing a non-invasive gastric cancer screening tool for detecting characteristic patterns of volatile organic compounds (VOCs). The VOCs' origin and composition in gastric cancer patients will be analysed, and the identified VOCs will be compared to the compounds in human breath, employing gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometry as well as a gold nanoparticle micro-array reaction pattern. A new type of breath analyser will be developed and validated in clinical studies in countries with a high disease burden.
