A study by Medical Detection Dogs, the Prostate Cancer Foundation, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, and Johns Hopkins University combined three current methods of diagnosing prostate cancer for the first time to detect the disease early. Larger-scale studies planned to develop a machine olfaction diagnostic tool – a ‘robotic nose’ – that may ultimately be a smartphone app of the future with prototype developed by MIT.

New research from a multi-national, cross-disciplinary team of scientists from Medical Detection Dogs (MDD) in the UK, the Prostate Cancer Foundation (PCF), Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Johns Hopkins University – and a friendly pair of specially trained cancer-sniffing dogs at MDD – has scientifically validated that a dog’s nose may hold the key to prostate cancer detection: a more accurate, non-invasive early diagnostic tool able to…
