Detecting lung cancer with electronic nose

Is it possible to detect lung cancer by smelling the air that someone exhales? Sharina Kort, lung specialist in training at MST, recently earned a PhD from the University of Twente (TechMed Centre) based on her research into that topic.

Results of study presented at ERS Barcelona

Sharina Kort MD, PhD presented the results of the study ‘Diagnosing non-small cell lung cancer by exhaled breath profiling using an electronic nose: A multicentre validation study’ on the ERS congress 2022 in Barcelona. Using the aeoNose, lung cancer patients could non-invasively be distinguished from non-lung cancer participants in a multinational validation setting. A paper on this study has recently been accepted by ‘Chest’.

Multicenter study Colon rectal cancer and advanced adenomas

Timely detection of oesophageal adenocarcinoma (OAC) and even more so its precursor Barrett’s oesophagus (BO) could contribute to decrease OAC incidence and mortality. An accurate, minimally-invasive screening method for BO for widespread use is currently not available. In a proof-of-principle study in 402 patients, we developed and cross-validated a BO prediction model using volatile organic compounds (VOCs) analysis with an electronic nose device. This electronic nose was able to distinguish between patients with and without BO with good diagnostic accuracy (sensitivity 91% specificity 74%) and seemed to be independent of proton pump inhibitor use, the presence of hiatal hernia, and reflux. This technique may enable an efficient, well-tolerated, and sensitive and specific screening method to select high-risk individuals to undergo upper endoscopy.

Aeonose breath analysis on TB screening Peru

The Union World Conference on Lung Health 2019 was held in Hyderabad (India) from October 30 – November 2. Dr. Ruvandhi Nathavitharana (Harvard University) presented results on the Aeonose exhaled-breath TB-study in Lima, suggesting Aeonose may meet WHO triage test criteria to rule out TB (90% sensitivity, 70% specificity) in lower-risk patients admitted with cough or TB risk factors.

Pancreas new diagnostics

Improved diagnostics for pancreatic diseases are badly needed. An electronic nose (AeoNose™) analysing exhaled breath was successfully used to distinguish between pancreas carcinoma, chronic pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas), and healthy controls: promising results from a multicenter pilot study in the Netherlands.
