In Clinical Trials, Breath Test for Lung Cancer Shows Promise for Earlier Detection

Pathologists may do fewer lung biopsies should non-invasive breath testing technology make it into clinical practice Here’s a medical laboratory test for diagnosing cancer that has the potential to score two runs with one swing of the bat. First, researchers have completed the first clinical trial of a non-invasive cancer test that utilizes a breath specimen. Second, the subject of this clinical trial was lung cancer—a type of cancer that would benefit from a pathology test that can detect the...

Researchers Want to Introduce Breath Analysis into Clinical Pathology Laboratory Testing

Recent advances in breath analyzer technologies may give pathologists new diagnostic tools Does breath analysis have a promising future in pathology and clinical laboratory testing? That day may not be far off. Scientists in multiple research laboratories are developing cost-effective, non-invasive diagnostic test technologies based on breath specimens from patients. Researchers say that breath analysis can provide critical information in real time and deliver numerous advantages over fluid...
