No, the test does not show the type, spread, or location of cancer.
PanTum® Detect is a blood test for screening healthy individuals for the presence of two biomarker enzymes inside immune cells (macrophages) circulating in an individual’s bloodstream.
A positive result indicates the presence of silently growing benign, premalignant and malignant tumors somewhere in the body.
If the test is positive, follow-up diagnostics are carried out using standard tumor markers, imaging, PET/CT and Histopathology to confirm the location and spread of the silently growing tumors.
The “Cancer-Scan” program combines PanTum® Detect screening blood tests with existing pathology and imaging techniques into an integrated multi-tumor screening concept for the early detection of pre-cancerous and cancerous tumors in symptomless stages for healthy individuals.
