Fingerprint sweat may reveal #breastcancer!

Dear #ThermoOncology Readers,

Exciting NEWS! Did you know that fingerprint sweat may reveal if one has #breastcancer?

Researchers working in criminal forensics may have stumbled upon a new way to identify #breastcancer that eliminates the need for painful and time-consuming mammograms. Researchers at Sheffield Hallam University have potentially identified a test that could replace mammograms using a patient’s fingerprints, analyzing the molecular composition of sweat found via mass spectrometry.

By examining protein levels, it is possible to pinpoint markers for benign pathology, #earlystagecancer, or #metastaticbreastcancer. The technique leverages artificial intelligence to interpret mass spectrometry data and distinguish between control samples and potentially cancerous ones, showcasing the potential for a more accessible and less invasive breast cancer screening method.

The researchers said they envision a future where individuals could undergo a simple fingerprint test, which alone would provide sufficient data for cancer detection, eliminating the need for not only mammograms but further testing to confirm cancer after an abnormal finding.
