Breakthroughs in cancer testing could impact lives

(BPT) - Jim Ford felt completely healthy. He didn’t have any symptoms and kept up with recommended cancer screenings. When his doctor suggested he participate in a clinical trial for a new cancer screening test that could detect a shared cancer signal across 50 different types of cancer, he figured he had nothing to lose.

But then the test—a multi-cancer early detection test called Galleri®—showed a positive signal. Ford's diagnosis was confirmed with a CT scan and a PET scan. He was shocked to learn he had stage 2 pancreatic cancer.*
