Scientists have named an unexpected symptom of a sick heart .
An amazing discovery made by German scientists, who found that heart disease is recognized due to its specific smell. According to the researchers, this fragrance is unique and to compare it with. Doctors called it OR51E1.
The fact that the patient heart there is a special smell, found scientists from the Munich Ludwig-Maximilian University. Scientists are convinced that if doctors can learn to recognize the smell, it will move far ahead of the ability to diagnose diseases of the heart and blood vessels at an early stage.
“When a person encounter any irregularities in the heart, that organ through certain receptors produces an odor, analyzing which it is possible to identify certain pathologies” — that is the theory of the authors work.
It is noteworthy that the scientist, in his own words, failed to find analogues to the smell of an unhealthy heart, so to compare it with. However, it is quite certain. The only question that requires a precise methodology that would allow us to classify a smell at the level of practical medicine, said scientists.
The development of this technique have been actively engaged in, additionally reported the study authors.
Scientists do not first declare the smell of a marker of the disease. Today in science actively are searching for “snuff” innovations in the diagnosis of cancer is to find cancer patients by scent trained dogs.
As for the heart, a new theory of German scientists, does not seem absurd, if you remember, for example, that one of the indicators of stroke in humans is the odor of acetone coming from him.
