Cancer-sniffing Dogs May Help Train Robot Noses to Detect Tumors Early

Understanding the molecular components of odors used by trained dogs to detect prostate cancer could help researchers to develop computers with similar diagnostic accuracy, a new study shows. The study, “Feasibility of integrating canine olfaction with chemical and microbial profiling of urine to detect lethal prostate cancer,” was published in PLOS One. An ongoing need in prostate cancer care is for more accurate non-invasive tests to detect the cancer, and to distinguish between potentially deadly tumors…
