Breathtaking Progress in Breath Research Highlighted by SNSF


The Swiss National Science Foundation has published a feature on the research of Prof. Pablo Sinues’ Translational Medicine Breath Research (TMBR) group at DBE and their system for breath analysis through mass spectrometry which they have established at the University Children’s Hospital and elsewhere. SNSF especially highlights the fascinating options provided by newly developed bags containing patient’s breath.

Sinues: “The method has proven its worth with anti-epileptics. It could also be developed to measure certain cancer treatments. And the bags we’re currently developing could be very helpful in managing anaesthetic dose and effects during surgery”.
