Dogs may be able to tell GPs who have only a smell that they have one day, according to a new study, the pharmaceutical company BioScent Dx.
The survey is designed to find out how accurate can a cancer of lung cancer equipment be found in a blood donation using only smell. Dogs with a smell of 10,000 times more people are on their own smells, according to a news release announcing the results.
Four small ones were used for the screening, which involved clicking the clicks.
Three of the dogs were able to reproduce lung cancer 96.7 per cent of the time and standard samples were 97.5% of the time, according to the survey. The fourth dog was defined as "not encouraged to achieve during training."

Authors say that this provides the door for a larger-scale research project involving dogs. This may lead to a false detection and cheaper and more aggressive approach to today's cancer.
"A cancer detection test may help to save thousands of lives and change the way they are treated," said lead researcher Heather Junqueira.
The company said that the next stage has already begun. It is a breast cancer examination that partners provide a sample of breathing shown by cancer-sniffing dogs.
The results were presented this week at the American Biological and Molecular Biology Society annual meeting.
