Prevention of Colorectal Cancer Through Multiomics Blood Testing (PREEMPT CRC)
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The PREEMPT CRC study is a prospective multi-center observational study to validate a blood-based test for the early detection of colorectal cancer by collecting blood samples from average-risk participants who will undergo a routine screening colonoscopy.
Freenome is using a type of artificial intelligence, called machine learning, to identify patterns of cell-free biomarkers in blood to detect cancer early. The purpose of this prospective multi-center observational study is to validate a blood-based test for the detection of colorectal cancer by collecting blood samples from average-risk participants who will undergo a routine screening colonoscopy.
Participants who provide informed consent, meet the eligibility criteria and provide a blood sample for this study will be enrolled. Participants will undergo blood collection and will then complete a standard-of-care screening colonoscopy.
