Brief Summary:

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 or disease
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.

Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 1000 participants
Observational Model: Other
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Detection of Clusters of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC)in Patients With Different Lung Disorders by Ion Mobility Spectrometry. Different Clusters of VOC in the Diagnosis of Different Lung Disorders Using Ion Mobility Spectrometry
Study Start Date : July 2006
Estimated Primary Completion Date : June 2023
Estimated Study Completion Date : June 2023
