Breath test to detect stomach cancers

6th March 2013

Research published online in the British Journal of Cancer has suggested that a new type of breath test that detects nanoparticles could help to diagnose stomach cancers.

Scientists working on the project say that further research is still needed but the test could mean much earlier diagnosis of the disease and could replace the need for endoscopies in the future. There are around 7,000 new cases of stomach cancer diagnosed every year in the UK with most in their advanced stages when discovered.
