Graham Player Ph.D.'s curator insight, May 19, 3:54 AM

Researchers at Humanitas Research Hospital in Milan tested the ability of dogs to detect prostate cancer from urine samples. They took urine samples from 320 men with prostate cancer, and 357 without it. The men with cancer had all different stages of the disease, from very low-risk, slow-growing tumors, to cancer that had spread. Some of the men in the non-prostate-cancer group had other diseases or conditions, including other types of cancer.

One of the dogs detected every single prostate cancer case, and only hit false positives — when it identified cancer when it wasn’t there — in 2 percent of cases. The other dog was almost as accurate. The research team reported that the two dogs had an accuracy rate of 98%.
