M3CRC Colorectal Cancer Risk Screening Test

Colorectal cancer (commonly known as large intestine cancer) has become the most common cancer in Hong Kong since 2013 and ranks second among fatal cancers.

Studies have shown that early detection of colorectal polyps is extremely helpful in preventing colorectal cancer and improving survival rates. Small polyps are usually asymptomatic and difficult to detect. Special examinations are required to detect them.

There are many non-invasive tests that can detect colorectal cancer. However, these non-invasive testing solutions often cannot detect small polyps. The M3CRC was developed by GenieBiome (CUHK) of the Chinese University of Hong Kong. Testing from a stool sample can detect small polyps, large intestinal polyps, colorectal cancer risk, and colorectal polyp recurrence risk index.

M3CRC Colorectal Cancer Risk Screening Test M3CRC
M3CRC is a unique, non-invasive fecal biomarker test that detects small polyps, large intestinal polyps, colorectal cancer risk and Risk index for recurrence of large intestinal polyps.
The sensitivity of colorectal cancer detection is as high as 94%, equivalent to colonoscopy.
For those who have had their polyps removed, frequent and regular monitoring of the recurrence of polyps can be done without causing harm to the body.
Suitable for:
1. People of any age: It can be used to regularly monitor the health of intestinal microecology and understand the health status of intestinal microecology related to colorectal cancer.
2. People over 45 years old: It is used to predict the risk of colorectal polyps and colorectal cancer. According to the recommendations of the American Cancer Society, people aged 45 or over should receive regular colorectal cancer screening. People at higher risk should start screening earlier if they have family history, genetic mutation or other known risk factors.
3. People who have polyps or colorectal cancer removed within 10 years: It is used to predict the risk of possible colorectal polyps recurrences.
