Today’s top health news

The world’s largest breath-based study into bowel cancer has been launched in the UK, reports PharmaTimes.com. The trial, consisting of 1,400 patients, is assessing the potential of Field Asymmetric Ion Mobility Spectrometer (FAIMS) technology in the early detection of colorectal cancer – the second most common cause of cancer deaths worldwide. The trial follows a successful pilot using the same technology, which showed a sensitivity of 88 per cent in detecting Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) biomarkers for the disease. Dr Fiona Reddington, head of Population, Prevention and Behavioural Research at Cancer Research UK commented that “Patients diagnosed with bowel cancer at the earliest stage have better than 90 percent chance of surviving for five years, whilst for those diagnosed at the latest stage this drops to just 6.6 percent.”
