New Device For Detecting Lung Cancer

cancer   A new technique for diagnosing lung cancer will identify this dangerous disease at an early stage.

   On the eve of World Day against Cancer, which is celebrated annually on February 4, there were reports of new developments in the fight against the most dangerous disease of cancer - cancer of the lung.

   The earlier cancer is detected, the greater the chances of a favorable outcome. However, a cancer diagnosis is quite difficult, because in the early stages lung cancer resembles the symptoms of chronic inflammation. To identify the tumor is usually carried out X-rays and bronchoscopy - an extremely uncomfortable procedure for patients.

   Scientists the Fraunhofer Institute for Cell Therapy and Immunology in Leipzig offered to determine the tumor on the composition of exhaled air. Tumor cells in the lungs may show special proteins - biomarkers that are present in the exhaled air. Lung cancer (bronchogenic carcinoma, bronchogenic carcinoma) - malignant neoplasm of the lung, which makes up 20% of all lung tumors. Lung cancer is leading cause of death from cancer in the world. In 90% of cases smoking provokes the tumor.

   Until now, the main difficulty was that the doctors did not have a reliable means of identifying a specific lung cancer biomarkers. German scientists have succeeded in developing such a device. From the patient needed 20 minutes to breathe in the diagnostic tube. When the condensate formed during respiration, will dissipate, the presence of biomarkers will give a specific antibodies.

   For example, the presence of the protein VEGF, which is responsible for the growth of new blood vessels that may be indicative of tumor development, wrote

   Although the device is still quite complicated and expensive for widespread use, the author of the development Dr. Jörg Lehmann hopes that in a couple of years will appear an industrial specimen that could be applied in clinical diagnostics.
