Panel of Cancersafe test are really a fantastic tumor marker based test separately for Men and Women. Pankaj Sohaney, Manager marketing and Business Development said “If someone already have family history of cancer they must take check once for peace of mind”. Few laboratory and hospitals are performing individual markers test but its very innovative and novel product in terms of complete panel of cancer detection. One can know in very early stage for detection of cancer.
Dr. Sanjida Ahmed, Director of Research said now a days there is enough awareness among the people that Early detection of cancer is the only solution for cancer detection. Panel of cancer detection will diagnose gene mutation in early stage before it appears physically. It will help to reduce the number of cancer patients in future.
What is Cancersafe® test?
It is a highly sophisticated blood test to detect early cancer. Tumor markers have long been used, either to screen for cancers or to monitor cancer treatments, to track and screen for recurrences. Cancersafe® test uses a panel of 10/11 tumor markers (10 for women, 11 for men). Tumor markers are molecules appearing in the blood in relation to development of some of the most important cancers. Measurement or identification of tumor markers is useful, because it can detect substances in the blood in early stages, a signal that further medical attention is needed.
Cancersafe® test can also be useful in follow-up if you are being treated for the illness. Variations of the tumor markers can be followed by regular tests. Slight to moderate increase may occur 6-12 months before clinical signs of relapse.

Panel for Women
Everybody, specially over 40, even the young women, caring about breast and ovary should perform this test once a year. The result includes graphs demonstrating the evolution of the following tumor markers. This evolution should be highly considered for treatment and prognosis if the possibility of developing cancer is observed.
CEA, CA15-3, CA19-9, CA125, CA72-4, AFP, BHCG, B2M, NSE, CYFRA21-1
Panel for Men
All men, over 40, should perform it once a year, or more if required. This panel covers a wide range of cancers which are common in men. The evolution of the following tumor markers are demonstrated to screen for developing cancers in men.
CEA, CA19-9, CA125, CA72-4, PSA+ FPSA, AFP, BHCG, B2M, NSE, CYFRA 21-1
