Dogs That Smell Cancer
Cute dogs are what keep us happy and healthy… but now they may also save lives from cancer. Turns out, man’s best friend can smell prostate cancer. Thanks to an innovative collaboration between the PCF, MIT, Johns Hopkins University and UK’s Medical Detection Dogs, scientists have demonstrated that dogs can smell cancer. The future of cancer detection may be a robotic nose or even a cancer detection app on your smart phone.
Cancer Detection Dogs
Can dogs smell cancer? A new study proves that they can. PCF-funded researchers Claire Guest MSc, HonDSc and Andreas Mershin PhD, MSci are determined to take this magnificent ability dogs have and use it to help detect cancer. Moreover, they plan to replicate dogs' ability to smell cancer and, someday, put it into an app for your smartphone.
