Real-Time Breath Analysis for Disease Diagnostics, Pharmacokinetics and Exposure Assessment Real-Time Breath Analysis for Disease Diagnostics, Pharmacokinetics and Exposure Assessment

Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) in human breath offer a unique way to study human metabolism and detect various diseases. The Vocus CI-TOF mass spectrometer provides real-time, quantitative and humidity independent measurements essential for reliable breath analysis. In this webinar we demonstrate the advantages of breath analysis with the Vocus mass spectrometer based on recent measurements and discuss potential applications in disease diagnostics, pharmacokinetics and exposure assessment.

In this interview, we speak to Esmée Bakker about her latest research which investigated the impact physical activity has on cardiovascular disease.
 
   Study demonstrates decreased lung cancer deaths with early detectionStudy demonstrates decreased lung cancer deaths with early detection
 
A recent, substantial decline in lung cancer deaths is associated with earlier diagnosis of lung cancer than in the past, supporting the need for increased use of screening to save lives, according to a Mount Sinai study published in JAMA Network Open in December.
 
   Quitting smoking at or around diagnosis improves survival of lung cancer patientsQuitting smoking at or around diagnosis improves survival of lung cancer patients
 
Patients with lung cancer who quit smoking after their diagnosis have a 29 percent improvement in their overall survival compared to patients who continue smoking after diagnosis, according to a study published in the Journal of Thoracic Oncology, the official journal of the International Association for the Study of Lung Cancer.
 
   Exposure to parasitic roundworm linked with lower lung-function and asthma in younger menExposure to parasitic roundworm linked with lower lung-function and asthma in younger men
 
By looking at the exposure to the parasitic roundworm Ascaris lumbricoides/suum in Nothern Europe (Norway, Denmark and Estonia), the study finds that younger men exposed to Ascaris had a striking reduction in lung function and nearly five times higher odds of having asthma compared to the non-exposed.
