The DIAG-CANCER project is developing a revolutionary diagnostic method for breast and other types of cancer. Thanks to this method, a person need now only breathe into a device to find out their disease's stage and subtype. By analysing people's exhalation with an array of nano-sensors, these non-invasive, low cost breath tests could contribute to monitoring treatment response. This would also reduce health budgets, making more cost-effective cancer treatments a real possibility.
