Scientists in Israel are working on a breathalyzer that can detect lung cancer as easily as "your garden variety intoxication detector," pictured above.
Similar tests are in the works but require a pretreatment of the breath, which adds time, cost and complexity to a procedure. The Israeli breathalyzer's bypassing of such pretreatments is being attributed to advancements in nanotechnology.
The team conducted a study over 56 healthy volunteers. 40 who were known to have lung cancer were tested by the breathalyzer without any pretreatment, using a sensor made up of nine gold nanoparticle chemiresistors.The results showed 33 distinct biomarkers set apart the people with lung cancer from their peers with healthy lungs.
