Efficacy of drug detection by fully-trained police dogs varies by breed, training level, type of drug and search environment.
Some recent publications claim that the effectiveness of police canine drug detection is uncertain and likely minimal, and that the deterrent effect of dogs on drug users is low. It is also claimedExpand

Identification of volatile lung cancer markers by gas chromatography–mass spectrometry: comparison with discrimination by canines
In this work, a chromatographic method for identification of volatile organic compounds was compared with canine recognition. Gas chromatography and mass spectrometry (GC–TOF MS) were used forExpand

Canine olfactory receptor gene polymorphism and its relation to odor detection performance by sniffer dogs.
The outstanding sensitivity of the canine olfactory system has been acknowledged by using sniffer dogs in military and civilian service for detection of a variety of odors. It is hypothesized thatExpand

Analytical and unconventional methods of cancer detection using odor
Abstract Finding a non-invasive, painless and simple screening method for early detection of cancer is a desirable goal. There is evidence that volatile organic compounds (VOCs) detectable in exhaledExpand

Study of the art: canine olfaction used for cancer detection on the basis of breath odour. Perspectives and limitations.
Experimental studies using trained dogs to identify breath odour markers of human cancer, published in the recent decade, have been analyzed and compared with the authors' own results. ParticularExpand

Impact of individual training parameters and manner of taking breath odor samples on the reliability of canines as cancer screeners
Abstract The aim of this study was to assess the progress in operant conditioning of dogs during 3 training phases up to a level where the dogs performed a minimum of 40 correct indications withoutExpand
