You owe it to yourself, your family, and the world to take every precaution necessary to safeguard your health. One of the most important, preventative steps you can take is the early detection of cancer. New screening techniques help us detect cancer in its earliest stages, so we can eradicate it before it becomes a serious problem.
At Agenixs, we use a revolutionary blood test that can detect cancer before you have any signs or symptoms. This “liquid biopsy” tests for genetic mutations that cancers shed into the bloodstream — like UPC bar-coding on products. Each genetic mutation is unique, and it labels the DNA as having come from the cancer — like a bar code. This offers an incredible opportunity to kill cancer early, before it has any opportunity to do damage.
Available since 2013, the innovative ONCOblot blood test identifies the existence of malignant cancer cells in such small numbers that it is easy to destroy them before they grow into a clinically significant cancer. The test works by detecting ENOX2 proteins, which are produced only by cancer cells, and then shed into the circulation. By identifying where in the body the ENOX2 proteins originated, ONCOblot can tell us where the cancer is. Because the proteins become detectable when the malignant cells reach 2 million—which is extremely low compared with other screening techniques — ONCOblot is becoming a much more powerful tool than traditional screening methods.
The ONCOblot test can detect the presence of dozens of cancers, including: bladder, breast, cervical, colorectal, endometrial, esophageal, kidney, leukemia, liver, lung, lymphoma, melanoma, mesothelioma, myeloma, ovarian, pancreatic, sarcoma, stomach, thyroid, and uterine.
Our goal at Agenixs is to give you as much information as possible about your body and your health, so we can take the necessary steps to ensure a long, joyous, and fulfilling life.
Today, the majority of cancers are diagnosed too late, when outcomes are poor. That’s why we’re excited to offer the Galleri™ multi-cancer early detection test* to our patients. This first-of-its-kind test detects more than 50 types of cancer through a simple blood draw.
When cancer is detected in its early stages, more cancer treatment options may be available that can improve survival rates. Be in control of your health and call us today to make an appointment to learn more and determine if the test may be right for you.
*The Galleri test is recommended for use in adults with an elevated risk for cancer, such as those aged 50 or older. It is intended to be used in addition to, and not replace, other cancer screening tests.
