Breath Magic study
What does your breath say about you? Imperial College, in collaboration with the National Institute of Health Research, are studying breath. We have promising results showing that breath may be able to predict the presence of stomach or bowel cancer. But we need your help to develop this technology! The Breath MAGIC study (Models for Assessment for Gastrointestinal Cancers) looks to sample large cohorts of patients aged 18 years or over, with recent stomach or bowel related symptoms. This way we can ascertain a population profile of breath components to help us develop this tool. If you would like to donate a breath sample please let us know by completing this contact form on our website http://www.cavendishhealth.nhs.uk/contact_dlg1.aspx?p=E87745
