|Early cancer detection – 70 types of cancers detected in a single blood sample|
|UK Medicare Screening is pleased to be able to offer a ground-breaking new cancer screen called ; “Trucheck“…..|
|Trucheck is a liquid biopsy test developed for cancer screening in asymptomatic individuals.|
It has been clinically validated in a study of more than 40,000 participants, and with an overall sensitivity and specificity, well above 90%.
|How it Works|
|The test detects circulating tumour cells (CTCs) and their clusters. – these tiny cells are released from the primary site of a tumour and act as the driving force behind metastatic spread of disease, whilst also offering unique insights into the molecular makeup of the cancer. |
CTCs are harvested from the patient’s blood sample by manipulating their ability to evade apoptosis and programmed cell death. This is done by exposing all the cells from the sample to an environment which stimulates programmed cell death (apoptosis). This causes all the healthy cells to die off. This leaves only potentially malignant cells to survive.
Using this approach, it is possible to give a real-time assessment of live cancer activity in the body. We can also determine both tissue and organ of origin – through antibody staining in the lab.
|You have 4 available options:|
|Trucheck single organ – Breast, Prostate, or Colon cancers.|
This offers a cost-effective option to those with a genetic predisposition, or familial history of cancer that might give them a higher likelihood of developing, breast, prostate, or colon cancer.
2. Trucheck FemHealth – Breast, Cervical, Ovarian and Endometrial cancers.
(Please note this test is prescription only)
This test is ideal for patients who are currently on HRT and who require annual screening for Breast, Cervical, Ovarian and Endometrial cancers.
3. Trucheck Diabetes – Pancreas, Liver, Gallbladder, Kidney, Bladder and Colorectum cancers.
People with type 2 diabetes are twice as likely to be diagnosed with HPB cancers. This test looks specifically at the cancers of the Pancreas, Liver, Gallbladder, Kidney, Bladder and Colorectum.
4. Trucheck Intelli – 70 types of early-stage cancers
This is the most comprehensive cancer screening tool for solid organ tumours. Trucheck Intelli can detect more than 70 types of early-stage cancer from a single blood draw. Please note this test is prescription only. THEY ARE ONLY FOR PATIENTS WHO HAVE NOT BEEN DIAGNOSED OF CANCER OR SHOW NO SYMPTOMS.
