Dr. Mylinh Duong and Dr. Tim O’Shea’s research results will be presented at the 2022 American Thoracic Society (ATS) Conference on May 16th at 2pm EST. Using Breathe BioMedical’s breath analytic technology, Dr. Duong and her team conducted a study to detect Covid-19 in breath. Dr. Duong is an Associate Professor in the Department of Medicine at McMaster University and a Respirologist with Hamilton Health Sciences.  

Dr. Duong and her team conducted this research at Hamilton Health Sciences, St Joseph’s Hospital in Hamilton and St Mary’s Hospital over 6 months. The research involved patients in hospital, suffering from Covid-19 and an equal number of control samples. The study demonstrated that our breath analytics technology can be used with patients suffering from compromised respiratory capacity.

The promising results of Dr. Duong’s research are currently embargoed and will be released at this year’s ATS Conference. The conference will be held in San Fransico from May 13th-18th. The ATS Conference is a significant event for pulmonary, critical care and sleep professionals, with nearly 14,000 in attendance annually. At the conference, professionals present, learn and network, opening up opportunities for many. Dr. Duong is one of the many professionals who is able to have their research presented at the event.  

“Covid-19 has impacted the lives of the world’s population. We are grateful for the opportunity to work with Dr. Duong and her team, to contribute valuable research to address the global pandemic. Our partnership with Dr. Duong, Hamilton Health Sciences and McMaster University with funding from the Department of National Defence has allowed us to demonstrate the tremendous potential of breath analytics technology to detect disease in breath.” – Breathe BioMedical CEO, Stephen Graham.  

We are looking forward to the presentation of Dr. Duong’s results at the ATS Conference and the potentials it could bring to the medical field.
