A surprising discovery was made by German scientists who found that heart disease are recognized through a specific smell. According to the researchers, this fragrance is unique and not compare it with anything. Doctors called it OR51E1.
The fact that the patient's heart appears peculiar smell, have established scientists from the Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich. Scientists believe that if physicians can learn to recognize a smell, it will advance far in advance the possibility of the diagnosis of heart disease and blood vessels at an early stage.
"When a person has any disorders of the heart, the organ through certain receptors produces a peculiar odor, which can be analyzed to identify those or other diseases" - such is the theory of the authors.
It is remarkable that a scientist in his own words, could not find the unique smell of unhealthy heart, so do not compare it with anything. Nevertheless, it is quite certain. The only question that requires a precise technique, which would allow to classify this smell at the level of practical medicine, the scientists explained.
The development of this technique is already actively engaged in further study authors reported.
Scientists are not the first to announce the smell of the disease marker. Today in science are actively searching for "smelling" of innovations in the field of oncology diagnostics - to find patients by smell cancer trained dogs.
As for the heart, the new theory of German scientists did not seem absurd, if we recall, for example, that one of the indicators of stroke in humans is the appearance of acetone smell coming from it.
