Galleri: Multi-cancer early detection

What if you found cancer early enough to make a difference?

How the Galleri Test works: through a simple blood draw, the Galleri test looks at DNA in your blood to determine if any of it may have come from cancer cells.

Introducing the Galleri Test: The Galleri multi-cancer early detection test detects more than 50 types of cancer (visit list of cancers) through a simple blood draw.

*The Galleri test has not been cleared or approved by the FDA.

*Early Cancer detection:

Detects many cancers that are not commonly screened for today to allow for earlier treatment.

*Testing with ease:

Can be easily incorporated into a routine healthcare visit.

*Actionable results:

If a cancer signal is found, the results can point to where in the body the cancer is coming from with high accuracy to help your healthcare provider guide your next steps.

*Who can benefit?

The Galleri test is recommended for use in adults with an elevated risk for cancer, such as those aged 50 or older. It is not recommended if you are pregnant, 21 years old or younger or undergoing active cancer treatment.

The Galleri test is intended to be used in addition to and not replace, other cancer screening tests your healthcare provider recommends. Talk to your healthcare provider to learn more about the Galleri test.

*Understanding the results:

The Galleri test looks for signals present in the blood drawn that may be associated with cancer. These are two possible results from the Galleri test:

*A Negative: Cancer signal NOT Detected:

This means that no cancer signal was found however not all cancers can be detected by the Galleri test. Be sure to continue with routine recommended cancer screening tests.

*A Positive: Cancer Signal Detected:

This means that there is a suspicion of cancer. Your healthcare provider will discuss appropriate follow-up tests to confirm if cancer is present.

False negative and false positive results do occur.

The most important cancer is the one that you or your loved one may have and beating it starts with knowing you have it.

Around 70% of cancer deaths are caused by cancers not commonly screened for. It is time to look at cancer more broadly. Only 5 cancers have recommended screening. Adding a multi-cancer early detection test can improve the chance of finding cancer early.

*Important Safety Information:

The Galleri test is recommended for use in adults with an elevated risk for cancer, such as those aged 50 or older. The Galleri test does not detect all cancers and should be used in addition to routine cancer screening tests recommended by a healthcare provider. Galleri is intended to detect cancer signals and predict where in the body the cancer signal is located. Use of Galleri is not recommended in individuals who are pregnant, 21 years old or younger or undergoing active cancer treatment.

Results should be interpreted by a healthcare provider in the context of medical history, clinical signs and symptoms. A test result of “Cancer Signal Not Detected” does not rule out cancer. A test result of “Cancer Signal Detected” require confirmatory diagnostic evaluation by medically established procedures (e.g., imaging) to confirm cancer.

If cancer is not confirmed with further testing, it could mean that cancer is not present or testing was insufficient to detect cancer, including due to the cancer being located in a different part of the body. False-positive (a cancer signal detected when cancer is not present) and false-negative (a cancer signal not detected when cancer is present) test results do occur. Rx only.

The Galleri test had not been cleared by or approved by the FDA.
