The volatile content of the exhaled breath gas of mamma carcinoma patients will be chemically analyzed by proton-transfer-reaction time of flight mass spectrometry.
The goal of the study is to determine typical breath gas components that allow to distinguish patients with mamma carcinoma from women without carcinoma. Further, the investigators will test whether these breath gas markers can be used as tumor markers, which change in a typical manner during the progress of the disease. Finally the data will be investigated for the presence of marker components, that identify patients who will develop metastasis.

Background: - Some types of cancer, like cancer of the esophagus, are difficult to detect at an early stage. A possible detection method involves collecting breath samples to look for che...

Given the possible prognostic relationship between exhaled breath condensate pH and clinical symptoms, it is quite plausible that exhaled breath condensate pH can prove useful in the inten...
During the ethanol sclerotherapy procedure, the investigators will record doses of and time of ethanol injections and record ethanol concentrations in endtidal breath every 5 minutes. Furt...

This paper defines a method for optimizing the breath delineation algorithms used in Electrical Impedance Tomography (EIT). In lung EIT the identification of the breath phases is central for generatin...
The measurement of trimethylamine and isoprene in exhaled breath collected from dialysed patients indicates the changes in concentration of both compounds during dialysis. The aim of the presented stu...
Breath detection, i.e. its precise delineation in time is a crucial step in lung function data analysis as obtaining any clinically relevant index is based on the proper localization of breath ends. C...
Current evidence suggests that malaria infection could alter patient breath metabolites, a phenomenon that could be exploited to create a breath-based diagnostic test. However, no study has explored t...
Collecting duct carcinoma (CDC) is a rare type of renal cancer with a poor prognosis. As there are no standard guidelines for the management of metastatic CDC (mCDC), we evaluated the efficacy and saf...
A heterogeneous group of sporadic or hereditary carcinoma derived from cells of the KIDNEYS. There are several subtypes including the clear cells, the papillary, the chromophobe, the collecting duct, the spindle cells (sarcomatoid), or mixed cell-type carcinoma.
Straight tubes commencing in the radiate part of the kidney cortex where they receive the curved ends of the distal convoluted tubules. In the medulla the collecting tubules of each pyramid converge to join a central tube (duct of Bellini) which opens on the summit of the papilla.
The vital life force in the body, supposedly able to be regulated by acupuncture. It corresponds roughly to the Greek pneuma, the Latin spiritus, and the ancient Indian prana. The concept of life-breath or vital energy was formulated as an indication of the awareness of man, originally directed externally toward nature or society but later turned inward to the self or life within. (From Comparison between Concepts of Life-Breath in East and West, 15th International Symposium on the Comparative History of Medicine - East and West, August 26-September 3, 1990, Shizuoka, Japan, pp. ix-x)
A non-hereditary KIDNEY disorder characterized by the abnormally dilated (ECTASIA) medullary and inner papillary portions of the collecting ducts. These collecting ducts usually contain CYSTS or DIVERTICULA filled with jelly-like material or small calculi (KIDNEY STONES) leading to infections or obstruction. It should be distinguished from congenital or hereditary POLYCYSTIC KIDNEY DISEASES.
The heat flow across a surface per unit area per unit time, divided by the negative of the rate of change of temperature with distance in a direction perpendicular to the surface. (From McGraw-Hill Dictionary of Scientific and Technical Terms, 6th ed)
