Color Genomics Advances Precision Medicine with New Test for Hereditary Cancers


Marking its one year anniversary since launching the first-ever widely accessible breast and ovarian cancer risk test, Color Genomics announced a new cancer panel analyzing 30 genes that highly impact the most common hereditary cancers affecting both men and women. Available today, the Color Test analyzes hereditary cancer risks for breast, colorectal, melanoma, ovarian, pancreatic, prostate, stomach, and uterine cancers. The Color Test is physician ordered and includes genetic counseling by a board-certified genetic counselor. The genes included on the broader panel can significantly impact a person’s risk of cancer. For example, a mutation in the APC gene can increase a man or woman’s chance to develop colorectal cancer by age 70 to 70-100% if there are no interventions. Access to genetic information helps individuals and doctors take a data-driven approach to create preventive plans and align with the appropriate screening guidelines relative to their risk. For example, the 5-year survival rate for colorectal cancer increases from 13% to 90% when caught at an earlier more treatable stage.
