Figure 6

Concentration distributions of methanol (determined by PTR-MS) in exhaled breath of lung carcinoma patients (red) and healthy volunteers (green). The concentration is shown in logarithmic scaling. The median concentration of methanol in exhaled breath of cancer patients is 118.5 ppb, whereas in healthy controls it is 142.0 ppb. (not significantly different according Kruskal-Wallis test; p-value = 0.011).
