The dogs being trained to smell cancer and disease
These dogs are being trained to sniff out cancers and other diseases as part of an ongoing trial into the early diagnosis of life-threatening illnesses. The detection dogs are able to notice tiny changes in smell caused by cancers, malaria and Parkinson's disease. Early results have been so impressive that the NHS has granted permission for a clinical trial into detection dogs which could see them one day become a normal part of medical diagnosis - but critics say more evidence is needed and the costs are still too high.

Can dogs be trained to detect the smell of cancer?
For the past few decades, researchers have been exploring the possibility that cancer, possibly created by the growth of tumors, actually has a particular odor -- and dogs can pick up on that smell. Some doctors believe this area of research may lead to more efficient screening methods and cancer treatment procedures. Special correspondent Dr. Emily Senay reports.

Trained Dogs Sniff out Cancer
For more news visit ☛ http://english.ntdtv.com Follow us on Twitter ☛ http://twitter.com/NTDTelevision Follow us on Facebook ☛ http://me.lt/9P8MUn They're man's best friend, but dogs, it turns out, may also be a doctor's newest secret weapon for detecting cancer. One clinic in Germany has trained dogs to do this important work. This German shepherd can sniff out with great reliability whether a person has lung cancer - from a sample of the person's breath. The dogs are trained to lie down when they detect a cancer sample and can look forward to receiving a treat. [Uwe Friedrich, Dog Trainer]: "We trained the dogs via positive stimulation. So the smell of cancer is regarded as lucrative, positive by our dogs. We trained them to lie down when they sniff a cancer sample. And that worked through positive stimulation. We had a large amount of samples, more than 200, and the dogs had to differentiate between cancer and not cancer." Because lung cancer seems to have a specific combination of odors, the scientist thought of using the very fine nose of dogs to detect it. And the dogs have a huge advantage compared to "normal" electronic noses. [Enole Boedeker, Chest Surgeon]: "The electronic noses are extremely sensitive to influences like diet, like what the people drank, if they drank alcohol, or if they smoke cigarettes. And the dogs just don't bother. They can easily find the lung cancer beside all other influences." The dogs can also detect a difference between patients who have been suffering for some time from lung cancer compared to those who have just recently fallen ill. While there has been some precedent for disease-sniffing dogs - in other studies, they have had anywhere from 40 to 90 percent success in accurately identifying cancers including bladder and colon cancers. They also have the ability to sniff out low blood sugar levels among diabetics.

Scientists Confirm Dogs Can Recognize a Bad Person
How to Understand Your Dog Better. It looks like dog owners have scientific evidence to prove that their pets are the smartest and most perceptive and can even help them single out bad people. Their list of superpowers makes dog people proud: they can sense fear, read body language, and even smell cancer to find it at an early stage and warn of upcoming epileptic seizures. TIMESTAMPS Dogs can recognize a bad person. 0:50 They feel how other people treat their owners. 2:21 Dogs can read our body language and emotions. 3:22 They can sense fear. 4:05 Dogs can smell cancer. 5:52 They can warn of upcoming epileptic seizures and diabetic shock. 6:59 Music: https://www.youtube.com/audiolibrary/music SUMMARY -An experiment led by Dr. Akiko Takaoka from the Department of Psychology at Japan’s Kyoto University concluded that dogs refuse to trust a person who lied to it. Dogs did not follow a pointing hand that led them to an empty container. -In an experiment, dogs wouldn’t take a treat from the people who’d been mean or disrespectful toward their owners. In fact, besides distrusting them, they flat-out ignored these meanies. -With enough training and treats for a job well-done, dogs are able to tell the happy faces from the sad ones, even with human faces they didn’t come across during their training. -In a study of 694 people, the scientists found a link between a person’s emotional state and their likelihood of getting bitten. Emotionally stable and confident people don’t get bitten nearly as often as those who feel anxious around intimidating dogs. -Lots of dog owners have reported that their pets paid particular attention to their body part affected by cancer. -Dogs’ super noses can sense the rapid changes in blood sugar levels since they change the smell of an affected person’s breath and skin.

Puppies Train To Be Drug and Bomb Search Dogs at Penn Vet
It's been three months since the Penn Vet Working Dog Center welcomed its inaugural class of puppies, seven rambunctious balls of energy destined to become highly trained detection dogs performing jobs that range from police and rescue work, to bomb and drug detection. The dogs—Bretagne, Kaiserin (called Kai), Morgan, PApa Bear, Sirius, Socks, and Thunder—are known as the Class of 2013. Each weekday, the puppies are delivered by their foster parents to the Center's headquarters at Penn's South Bank, where they spend the day training to be expert detectors and also learn how to remain physically fit. At the end of their year of training, the dogs will be expected to perform an extended search for a hidden object or person in an area that is unfamiliar to them. They will be able to ignore distractions, and they will be able to follow off-leash directions with agility. In addition to training the dogs, the Center is conducting scientific research on how to optimize the health and performance of all working dogs.

How dogs can sniff out diabetes
A chemical found in our breath could provide a flag to warn of dangerously-low blood sugar levels in patients with type 1 diabetes, according to new research the University of Cambridge. The finding, published today in the journal Diabetes Care, could explain why some dogs can be trained to spot the warning signs in patients. The researchers found that levels of the chemical isoprene rose significantly at hypoglycaemia – in some cases almost doubling. They believe that dogs may be sensitive to the presence of isoprene, and suggest that it may be possible to develop new detectors that can identify elevated levels of isoprene in patients at risk.

They then allowed the dogs to sniff urine samples from men with or without prostate cancer and indicate which ones had the prostate cancer smell. One dog correctly identified all the samples from men with prostate cancer, and the other dog identified 98.6% of them. This study suggests dogs can be trained to differentiate between urine samples from men known to have prostate cancer and people without the condition. But further testing should be carried out to test whether the dogs can accurately detect men with prostate cancer who are not yet known to have the disease although The researchers concluded that a trained sniffer dog can identifychemicals specific to prostate cancer in urine with a high level of accuracy,it seems unlikely that dogs would be routinely used on a widespread basis to detect prostate cancer instead of the traditional testing methods such as (PSA) test. PSA -prostate specific antigen-is a protein produced by the prostate. The PSA test is a blood test that measures the amount of prostate specific antigen in the blood. This type of study is suitable for an early-stage assessment of the promise of a new test. If successful, researchers would need to go on to test samples of men who are currently undergoing assessment for suspected prostate cancer, rather than those already known to have the disease. This would better assess how the dogs would perform in a real-world clinical situation. -Now your best friend can save your life- although There's no proper research to show that untrained dogs can detect cancer,some dog owners reported that they were lucky because their beloved dogs alerted them to cancer by nuzzling Certain body part insistently. -dogs can smell cancer on your breath- other studies have also found that dogs are able to sniff lung cancer on humans' breath and there are probably other medical conditions that dogs may be able to train to assist with and help people stay healthy. information source : http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmedhealth/behindtheheadlines/news/2015-04-13-how-dogs-could-sniff-out-prostate-cancer/

The Dog That Can Detect Cancer
For more news visit ☛ http://english.ntdtv.com Follow us on Twitter ☛ http://twitter.com/NTDTelevision Follow us on Facebook ☛ http://facebook.com/NTDTelevision It's a special dog: a military Belgian Shepherd that has been trained to detect signs of cancer in patients' urine. According to French scientists, the dog can do it far more accurately than any currently available scientific technique. Here's more. A French army sniffer dog would normally be trained to identify explosives or drugs but Aspirant is different. The Belgian Shepherd's handler, Corporal Anthony Fremont, says the dog is now as adept at identifying prostate cancer as it is contraband. [Corporal Anthony Fremont, Army Dog Handler]: "At first we thought it was a joke. But we inquired a little bit when we heard the news, and we found out that similar experiments had been conducted abroad, in the United States in this case." The French version of the idea began in a laboratory in Paris where Olivier Cussenot researches urinology at the Tenon Hopital. Knowing that a dog's sense of smell is roughly 200,000 times better than a human's, he hopes to develop an accurate automated test for a form of cancer that is notoriously difficult to track. [Olivier Cussenot, Prostate Cancer Specialist]: "The ultimate goal would be to be able to determine that a particular smell represents a particular cancer which would allow a machine to do the same job. In that case, you could standardize the task enough to establish a diagnostic test." And Aspirant has proven that it might be possible. In tests, he identified hidden samples of urine from patients with and without prostate cancer. The dog correctly identified 63 of 66 samples from cancer sufferers and even one from a donor who did not know he had the disease. [Olivier Cussenot, Prostate Cancer Specialist]: "If he sits near the sample, that's the way he says that the sample is positive. And we will then consider that this person's urine contains cancer cells, or at least contains molecules linked to prostate cancer." The World Health Organization says around 250,00 lives a year are lost to prostate cancer and the researchers hope Aspirant's nose can sniff out a way to get that number down.

Dogs Are Now Sniffing Out Cancer
A 3-year study in England is currently being done in order to catch cancer earlier than ever. Medical detection dogs are being trained to smell cancer. The dogs are given 8 different urine samples, one of which is from a patient who has prostate cancer. The dogs pick out the patient with cancer 90% of the time. Scientists believe that the dogs are detecting chemicals produced by the body when cancer is present. This could change the treatment and outcome for millions of cancer patients. Catching cancer before chemotherapy and surgery is needed could mean patients living a full and healthy life. Share this and help the fight against cancer!

Military dogs' sense of smell used to identify prostate cancer
(26 Feb 2018) LEADIN: Military dogs used to protect soldiers in the Italian army are now being trained to smell out molecules to identify prostate cancer for a study. Its authors say the dogs were able to detect the cancer with a high level of accuracy. STORYLINE: This is where the Italian army's dogs come to learn to sniff out mines and other explosives. The Veterinary Military Center has been operating here in Tuscany since 2002. These dogs are trained from an early age, their breeding is carefully controlled with the puppies bred on site. The puppies are let loose on the outside training area where they learn to confront their fears, run through tight tunnels and ignore the sound of gunfire. Eventually these pups will be taught to sniff out explosives. About ten to twenty dogs graduate from the program each year. Now these dogs are part of a medical research project which is being led by army veterinarians and urologists at the Istituto Clinico Humanitas. The study's lead researcher Gianluigi Taverna explains: "Anti-mine dogs are the Ferraris of dogs, they are not normal dogs, they go through various selections with top level professional trainers because if an anti-drug dog can make a mistake, an anti-mine dog cannot afford to make one - that would mean military men die. So we had the opportunity create a collaboration between Humanitas and the Ministry of Defense and use the army dogs." Taverna's study has been experimenting with the dogs' olfactory systems, proving that once the dogs have been specifically trained, they can detect prostate cancer in the urine samples of patients with the disease. Taverna became keen to start the study after reading about research on dogs used to smell melanoma. He wondered whether the melanoma was an exception, or if dogs could be trained to smell for specific diseases. For his study samples of urine are collected and frozen in Rozzano before being sent to Grosseto where the dogs are asked to sniff them. It's been an interesting study for the army too. "The research explored an ulterior capacity of the dog to individualize substances that in reality weren't even known," explains lieutenant colonel Simone Siena the commander of the Military Veterinary Centre. He says: "While the substances in the training and coaching phase of the dog, for specific needs of the army, are known and unambiguous, in this case the smell of the molecule wasn't known - so this has been a complex journey which has nonetheless given great results." Taverna has been conducting his study for several years. In a study Taverna published in the Journal of Urology in 2014 dogs were trained to detect prostate cancer. One achieved a sensitivity of 100% and a specificity of 98%. The second dog reached 98.6% specificity, 97.6% sensitivity. Samples that arrive in Grosseto must be unfrozen and prepared carefully before being sniffed by the dog. Lieutenant Colonel Lorenzo Tidu who heads the diagnostic medicine section at the army's veterinary centre in Grosseto says: "The samples are frozen until the test is carried out so that the molecule that the dog probably recognises doesn't disperse: the molecule is probably of organic origin but it is volatile. We need to make sure it doesn't disperse in the environment and we need to keep it in a container ready for use for the test with the dog. This is the most delicate phase, because we need to be sure that the molecule is present in the urine sample that is tested and that it isn't conditioned by other external factors." In a lab Tidu carefully squeezes a couple of drops from the unfrozen urine sample onto a cotton wool ball which is then sealed inside a dish which has a perforated layer. But dogs will not be roaming hospitals anytime soon to diagnose patients.

Dogs Sniff Out Human Medical Conditions
The Cancer and Bio-Detection Dogs' research center in Aylesbury, Southeast England is capitalizing on the ability of some canines to sniff out tiny chemical changes in humans. Researchers have found that some dogs can be trained to detect traces of cancer by sniffing urine samples, well before a patient might notice any symptoms. They have also discovered that some dogs can smell when a diabetic person is about to have a hypoglycemic attack. The next logical step is to train dogs to warn their diabetic owners when their blood sugar levels are about to drop too low. The dogs do the rounds at the charity's facility, sniffing a machine that holds eight urine samples. When they detect the sample that contains cancer cells, they either stop and sit down by it, bark or lick the bottle to indicate they can smell the cancer. [Claire Guest, Operations Director, "Cancer and Bio-Detection Dogs"] "We started off by training dogs to detect the odor of bladder cancer from a small urine sample and we did a clinical trial with Buckinghamshire Hospital's NHS Trust and we found that the best dogs were able to detect human bladder cancer from a tiny spot of urine 56 percent of the time. So this indicated that there really was something in this. Orthopedic surgeon Dr John Hunt started the charity 5 years ago after his interest in some curious anecdotes about dogs pestering their owners repeatedly on parts of their body that were later found to be cancerous. [Dr John Hunt, Founder, "Cancer and Bio-Detection Dogs"]: "I've got one story of a dog that indicated on a lady's breast and caused pain there, pressing there. So she goes to the doctor and the doctor can't feel anything but mercifully didn't say 'go away' and instead he said 'no, let's have a mammogram' and he didn't know about these other stories. And the mammogram - that showed a deep cancer in the breast for which she hadnecessary surgery." Hunt set up Cancer and Bio-Detection Dogs with Guest to apply scientific screening to what had previously been put down to coincidence. Guest says that a dog's nose is at least 100,000 more sensitive than a human's. [Claire Guest, Operations Director, "Cancer and Bio-Detection Dogs"] "Dogs have been trained to detect certain odours down to parts per trillion, so we are talking tiny, tiny amounts so their world is really very different to ours." Realistically, their research will probably lead to the invention of an electronic nose that will mimic that of a dog's. [Claire Guest, Operations Director, "Cancer and Bio-Detection Dogs"] "At the moment electronic noses are not as advanced as the dogs, they are about 15 years behind, but the work that we are doing and what we arefinding out will help scientists advance quickly so that they can use electronic noses to do the same thing." Guest currently has 17 dogs in various stages of training who will be paired up with diabetic owners, many of them children.

The dogs can also make mistakes here and there, which could put patients at risk. Still, the benefits are certainly there, and it makes for an intriguing new set of research. There are additional locations around the globe who train dogs to perform the same duties. The greatest takeaway from these studies is that dogs are very capable creatures when it comes to this sort of thing, and they’re already reliable for other types of medical-based assistance as well, like aiding the blind and disabled and even being able to tell when someone is going to have a seizure. https://www.geek.com/science/these-dogs-may-be-able-to-sniff-out-stomach-cancer-1704645/?source http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Dogs Being Trained to Detect Prostate Cancer
Many urologists agree that the current, so-called PSA test for detecting prostate cancer is often unreliable, but it remains widely used because there are no other tests. Researchers in Britain say this method may soon be replaced with dogs trained to sniff out the type of cancer that, according to the American Cancer Society, affects one in every 7 men. VOA’s George Putic reports. Originally published at - http://www.voanews.com/media/video/2935211.html

SOUNDBITE: (English) Mike McCulloch, Pine Street Clinic "The dogs in our study did equally well on early stage cancer and late state cancer. We had people with cancers in stage 1, 2, 3 and 4. There is very little difference in the samples between the stages and the dogs did astoundingly well in each of the stages of the disease, for both breast and lung cancer." 9. Various of x-rays showing lung cancer 10. Labrador dog smelling breath samples for cancer 11. SOUNDBITE: (English) Michael McCulloch, Pine Street Clinic "There are several theories as to what it is that the dogs were cueing on. One possibility is that the metabolism of cancer cells is very different to normal cells. The chemicals that they secrete are characteristically different. Another possibility is that, as cancer damages cells in the body that the breakdown products from those parts of a cell may come out in the breath. We don't know what the dogs are smelling." Tel Aviv, Israel 14. SOUNDBITE: (English) Prof. Ofer Merimsky, Lung cancer specialist, Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Centre "Well, I don't think it is the smell of the cancer, it is the smell of the necrotic (dead) tissue that accompanies cancer, especially in lung (cancer). It is known that lung cancer patients at the end stage of the disease - they have some foul smelling breath and we don't need dogs to detect this, we can do it almost ourselves." 12.

This is the point. The study does not deal with detection, survival, impact on treatment. So, there is no practical use, no clinical use for the moment of this so called dog scan." 16.

Tel Aviv, Israel 19. SOUNDBITE: (English) Prof. Ofer Merimsky, Lung Cancer Specialist, Tel Aviv Sourasky Medical Centre "We may detect the cancer in an early stage but the recurrence rates are very high, so the impact on survival of this early detection is negligible."

Doctors Train Dogs to Detect Deadly Bacteria
Doctors are training dogs to detect deadly bacteria. People have often used dog's heightened sense of smell for things like hunting and law enforcement. Now, Dutch doctors have trained a beagle to sense Clostridium difficile, a bacteria that can cause 'severe, hard-to-treat diarrhea and sometimes life-threatening colitis." The bacteria has reportedly been responsible for 14 thousand deaths every year in the U.S. The dog was able to pick up on the presence of the bacteria with remarkable accuracy, identifying 25 out of 30 people who had an infection, and 265 out of 270 people that did not. Dogs have been used experimentally in medicinal diagnosis before, for example when they were trained to detect lung or colon cancer by smelling a patient's breath. Researchers in Germany found that the dogs they used were able to identify 71 out of 100 lung cancer patients, and 93 percent of cancer free subjects. The results are actually better than the system that doctors currently use, which involves an imaging test. Lead author of the study Thorsten Walles from the Schillerhoehe Hospital said: "This is a big step forward in the diagnosis of lung cancer, but we still need to precisely identify the compounds observed in the exhaled breath of patients."

The Frankie Foundation: Watch our dogs sniff out thyroid cancer!
Frankie and Sophie detect thyroid cancer in human urine samples! The first dog you see, Frankie, sniffs a cancer sample (Frankie sits to signal the sample is cancer) followed by a benign sample (Frankie turns away and does not sit if the sample is benign). The second dog, Sophie, demonstrates a second method and sniffs out various cones. When she finds the cone with a cancer sample, she lays down and lets out a loud bark.

Health Alert: Dogs Help Sniff-Out Cancer
PHILADELPHIA, Pa. (Karin Caifa) -- Doctors usually rely on sight, sound and touch when diagnosing certain diseases. Yet they rarely use the sense of smell, even though many diseases do have their own distinct chemical makeup. It's not always obvious to the human nose. But now with special training, dogs are being used to develop new diagnostic tests fro certain illnesses by using their own keen sense of smell.Meet McBaine; half researcher, half detective, this pup possesses an investigative tool that even Sam Spade would envy. Like most dogs, the Springer Spaniel is equipped with an acute sense of smell that can detect chemicals and changes in odors that humans and technology cannot. The great thing about dogs is not only are they more sensitive but they can filter things out. In this case, McBaine and other dogs at the Penn Vet Working Dog Center in Philadelphia, have been taught to sniff out ovarian cancer tissue. Why this particular cancer? Scientists know that early ovarian cancer cells have special odors that can t be identified by standard methods, because they intertwine with other odors in the tissues. But a dog can recognize and weed out the cancer odor easily.We switch the sample location, we change things around just to make sure that we are very confident that that's what they're detecting. By using the dog's sense of smell, researchers hope to narrow down a specific odor so scientists can design a blood or urine test that can detect ovarian cancer in its earliest stages. We are trying to use the dogs to perfect the chemistry. Something McBaine and his four legged buddies are more than happy to do.
