Find  Information --> Biotherapy --> Sniffer  Dogs

Dogs have been shown to be able to detect cancers in humans, probably as a result of volatile chemical (odors) given off by the malignancy or the host. The potential diagnostic benefits of sniffer dogs is sparking excitement and research into this area of biotherapy.

The following article recently appeared in the British Medical Journal, and is highly recommended reading for anyone interested in Biotherapy:
