The breath biomarker panel, which is now commercially available, is intended to support research to distinguish between different types of chronic inflammatory airway diseases including asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, and idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis, and to facilitate better therapeutic decision making and monitoring.
The consortium aims to further elucidate the complex relationships between environment and disease by developing the concept of the ‘working-life exposome’, which takes into account all occupational and related non-occupational exposures (e.g. lifestyle) throughout the lifespan of an individual.
The collaboration seeks to advance the application of non-invasive breath sampling to address the challenges of the early detection of disease and the precision medicine delivery of healthcare through the discovery and validation of novel biomarkers
