Exploratory Study Using Nanotechnology to Detect Biomarkers of Parkinson's Disease From Exhaled Breath
Exploratory Study to Detect Volatile Biomarkers of Idiopathic Parkinson's Disease and Parkinsonism From Exhaled Breath Using a Nanomedical Artificial Olfactory System.

Parkinson's disease is diagnosed clinically, because biomarkers that may help in diagnosis and differential diagnosis are not yet available. Exhaled breath testing may yield a "breath-print" that can be used to distinguish healthy and diseased states.
