Israeli professor whose technology can diagnose cancer by sensing breath earns int'l honors

Prof. Hossam Haick of Haifa’s Technion-Israel Institute of Technology received the Humboldt Research Award ,, He has been prominent, among other things in his development of devices to diagnose and monitor various types of cancers (lung, breast, colon, gastric, head and neck, ovarian, kidney and bladder malignancies) via breath samples..

Profesor Hossam Haick iz Tehniona u Haifi je dobio Humboltovu nagradu jer je razvio inovativnu tehniku (markere)  kojom se dijagnosticira i prate različiti tipovi karcinoma ( pluća, dojke,colona,glave i vrata, ovarija, bubrega i mokraćnog mjehura) preko uzorka disanja. Markeri za te bolesti nalaze se i u "dahu" i  u koži.

Haick earned his doctorate in the field of energy and only later switched to biomedical technology. “Precisely because I am not a doctor, I was able to conceive such a unique development – an inexpensive and noninvasive system for diagnosing diseases based on breath,” he said.

 “Inspired by dogs, who know how to identify disease but not to tell the person what disease he has, I developed this digital system that accurately diagnoses the disease and its stage of development.

Today, we are working on several aspects of the system, including diagnosis of additional diseases and an interface that connects it to a smartphone.”
