Exhaled Breath Analysis - Quantifying the Storage of Lipophilic Compounds in the Human Body

Abstract

Real-time analysis of exhaled breath is a promising new method to get quantitative information on lipophilic compounds stored in the human body. Some pilot results are presented on isoprene, which is produced as a by-product of the cholesterol synthesis and appears in exhaled breath at concentrations of about 100 parts-per-billion (ppb). The results have… (More)
