Brief Summary:
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.

Detailed Description:
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.

Study Type : Observational
Estimated Enrollment : 25000 participants
Observational Model: Cohort
Time Perspective: Prospective
Official Title: Prevention of Colorectal Cancer Through Multiomics Blood Testing
Actual Study Start Date : May 20, 2020
Estimated Primary Completion Date : December 31, 2021
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 31, 2021

Intervention Details:
  • Diagnostic Test: Freenome test
    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.
    Other Name: Single Group Assignment

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Sensitivity for CRC of the Freenome test [ Time Frame: 90 days ]
  2. Specificity of the Freenome test [ Time Frame: 90 days ]

Biospecimen Retention:   Samples With DNA
Blood specimens will be de-identified and used to validate the performance characteristics of the Freenome test.
