ClinicalTrials.gov Identifier:
NCT00632307
First received: February 29, 2008
Last updated: June 22, 2011
Last verified: May 2011
  Purpose

Recognition of disease specific clusters of volatile organic compounds in patients with different lung diseases, using breath analysis with ion mobility spectrometry. Lung diseases of interest are:

  • COPD
  • tumors
  • airway infection
  • interstitial lung disease
  • sleep apnea Hypothesis: Breath analysis with ion mobility spectrometry can differentiate pulmonary disorders.

Condition
Lung Diseases

Detailed Description:

Recruitment of patients with different lung diseases goes on. First sub-group analysis of patients with COPD,lung cancer and sarcoidosis is done in order to create a training set of VOC-clusters for further validation in a bigger population of patients.
