Early cancer detection
can save lives

Defeating cancer starts with early detection

Today, the majority of cancers are found too late, when the prognosis is often poor and treatment options are limited.1 The earlier that cancer is diagnosed, the greater the chance of successful treatment and survival.2

Most cancers lack routine screening

Routine screening tests are recommended for cancers such as breast, cervical, colorectal and lung, because they have been shown to decrease cancer-specific mortality for the individual cancers that they detect.4

New tests are needed that can effectively detect many types of cancer early to give people a greater chance of improved outcomes. The Galleri test can detect more than 50 types of cancer, many of which lack routine screening options.7

Increase the chances of early cancer detection

The Galleri® test is a multi-cancer early detection test that detects methylation patterns of cell-free DNA (cfDNA) that could indicate the presence of cancer. When a cancer signal is detected, the test predicts the origin of the cancer signal with high accuracy. The Galleri test should be used in addition to guideline-recommended cancer screenings and is recommended for patients at elevated risk for cancer such as those aged 50 or older. 

3X more cancers could be detected early if the Galleri test was added to guideline-recommended cancer screenings 3X more cancers could be detected early if the Galleri test was added to guideline-recommended cancer screenings
