Take Proactive Steps
To Help Identify Cancer Earlier
OneTest
™ may help detect many common cancers at
their earlier, more treatable stages. It’s an accessible,
affordable way to put you in better charge of your health.

Q&A

Why is early detection so vital?
A study published in August by
the American Cancer Society
(ACS) noted that “screening of
asymptomatic persons for cancer
represents a bedrock of cancer
control because it increases
the probability of successful
treatment.” But the current
recommended screening tests
address cancers that account for
only a third of all cancer deaths.
New tests for the early detection
of multiple cancers from a single
blood draw may help detect a
range of cancers with no current
screening options. The ACS study
identified individuals over age 50,
as well as those with a smoking
history, high BMI, or a family history
of any cancer, as those who
“may benefit from enhanced
cancer screening and
prevention interventions.”
What’s the role of a
blood test in early detection?
Tumors produce antigens
that can be detected in the
blood, often at the early
stages of cancers.
How does OneTest™ work?
OneTest
™ is a simple blood
test that screens for multicancers in the body, including
cancers of the lung, colon,
pancreas, prostate, ovary and
liver. In addition to measuring
a panel of biomarkers, OneTest
incorporates machine learning
to derive a personalized risk
assessment for developing
cancer. When repeated yearly,
OneTest can identify rising
biomarker levels which might be
a sign of early stage cancer.
