Researchers win money to develop breath test to detect breast cancer
"We realized that if one could put these molecules in a screening platform, they might develop a non-invasive, quick and inexpensive over-the-counter breast cancer screening test."

Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA - One of the biggest problems in fighting breast cancer is the lack of inexpensive, early detection diagnostic tools.
Researchers at the University of Michigan hope to change that by developing a device to test breath for the presence of metabolites associated with breast cancer.
