The Take2 Prophecy™ Test for Nasopharyngeal Cancer

Nasopharyngeal cancer (NPC) is prevalent in southeast Asia and southern China, with an exceptionally high incidence in Guangdong, Guangxi, and Hong Kong. Therefore it is also known as “Guangdong cancer” or “Guangdong tumor.”

Patients with early detection of NPC have a survival rate of 90% in the next five years. On the other hand, the survival rate for patients diagnosed as in the advanced stage is less than 70% in the coming five years.

Take2 Prophecy™ Test for Nasopharyngeal Cancer (NPC) utilizes Next-generation Sequencing (NGS) technology that achieves >97% sensitivity and a 0.7% low false-positive rate. Providing accurate and reliable results, the Take2 Prophecy™ Test for NPC ranks at the top over other similar tests. It only requires a blood draw to identify early-stage NPC patients effectively.
