Is­re­ali re­searchers de­velop new method for can­cer screening

BioSpectrum (Asia) - - SCIENCE NEWS -

A new method for early and ac­cu­rate breast can­cer screening has been de­vel­oped by

Is­re­ali re­searchers at Ben-Gu­rion Uni­ver­sity of the Negev and Soroka Uni­ver­sity Med­i­cal Cen­tre, us­ing com­mer­cially avail­able tech­nol­ogy. The re­searchers were able to iso­late rel­e­vant data to more ac­cu­rately iden­tify breast can­cer biomark­ers us­ing two dif­fer­ent electronic nose gas sen­sors for breath, along with gas-chro­matog­ra­phy mass spec­trom­e­try (GC-MS) to quan­tify sub­stances found in urine. Re­searchers de­tected breast can­cer with more than 95 per cent av­er­age ac­cu­racy us­ing an in­ex­pen­sive com­mer­cial electronic nose (e-nose) that iden­ti­fies unique breath pat­terns in women with breast can­cer. In ad­di­tion, their re­vamped sta­tis­ti­cal analy­ses of urine sam­ples sub­mit­ted both by healthy pa­tients and those di­ag­nosed with breast can­cer yielded 85 per cent av­er­age ac­cu­racy.
