To better aid with detecting the asbestos-related disease, a UK-based medical manufacturer has announced the start of clinical trials for their new disease breathalyzer – the Owlstone’s Breath Biopsy®. In both Canada and the United States, the International Association of Heat and Frost Insulators and Allied Workers (IAHFIAW), whose members are knowingly at risk for the malignant mesothelioma, has partnered with the Cambridge based Owlstone Medical for such trials.
