BACKGROUND Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) biomarkers in breath provide a novel, noninvasive and quick approach to diagnosis lung cancer. The aim of the proposed study was to investigate the VOCs biomarkers in exhaled breath for lung cancer. METHOD The VOCs in exhaled breath of 88 lung cancer patients, 70 lung benign disease and 85 healthy people were(More)
Lung cancer (LC) is the leading cause of cancer-related death. The sensitive and non-invasive diagnostic tools in the early stage are still poor. We present a pilot study on the early diagnosis of LC by detecting markers in exhaled breath condensate (EBC). EBC samples were collected from 105 patients with LC and 56 healthy controls. We applied(More)
A number of multiresistant pathogens including Acinetobacter baumannii (A. baumannii) place a heavy burden on ventilator-associated pneumonia (VAP) patients in intensive care units (ICU). It is critically important to differentiate between bacterial infection and colonization to avoid prescribing unnecessary antibiotics. Quantitative culture of lower(More)
BACKGROUND Breath analysis became promising for noninvasive diagnosis of cancer with sophisticated spectrometry technology introduced. OBJECTIVE This study aimed to select volatile markers for lung cancer detection, which exclude the influences from non-malignant lung diseases. METHODS 171 subjects who were divided into three groups: patients with LC,(More)
It has been reported that detection of exhaled breath condensate (EBC) is available for studies of pulmonary diseases, especially lung disease. In order to detect lung cancer (LC) at early stage, a point-of-care testing system suitable for measurement of tumor markers in EBC is developed. The assay, based on gold nanoparticle sandwich immunoassay and(More)
Marine toxins are produced by plankton and do a great harm to human through food chain by accumulating in shellfishes and fishes. It is highly required and favorable to develop novel methods for the rapid and efficient detection of marine toxins to avoid the poisoning cases that have occurred frequently in many countries. This study presents a real-time(More)
TPS-T1-10 Nanostructured ZnO/SnO2 gas sensors via microemulsion synthesis method # 1 Chemical and Biochemical Sensors Fahimeh Hoori-Abad Saboor, Mehrdad Asgari, Yadollah Mortazavi, Abbas Ali Khodadadi Heteronanostructures of ZnO/SnO2 was synthesized through two different synthesis procedures in microemulsion system of TritonX100/hexanol/cyclohexane.(More)
A novel HepG2 cell-based biosensor using Love Wave sensor was developed to implement the real-time and sensitive detection of a diarrheic shellfish poisoning (DSP) toxin, Okadaic acid (OA). Detachable Love Wave sensor unit and miniaturized 8-channel recording instrument were designed for the convenient experimental preparation and sensor response signal(More)
