Rebecca Fitzgerald Cancer breath test

Professor Rebecca Fitzgerald, Department of Oncology, MRC Cancer Unit and co-lead of the CRUK Cambridge Centre Early Detection Programme is leading a new clinical trial at Addenbrooke’s Hospital to develop a breath test that could indicate the presence of multiple cancer types at an early stage. This is the first test of its kind and has huge potential to provide a non-invasive method to find cancer early, when treatment is more likely to be effective.

Cancer Research UK Cambridge Centre  is running the PAN Cancer trial for Early Detection of Cancer in Breath in collaboration with Owlstone Medical to test their Breath Biopsy® technology.
