RAID-CRC: early detection test Colorectal Cancer

Colon or colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common cancer and the second most deadly in the world.

The most common procedure to detect it is to collect stool to detect hidden blood, and if the result is positive, a colonoscopy is performed to confirm the diagnosis. However, the fecal occult blood test generates a high rate of false positives, involving up to 30-50% of unnecessary colonoscopies.

Thanks to more than 20 years of research, GoodGut has developed a non-invasive test, an alternative to the techniques used, that diagnoses colorectal cancer early and more accurately, significantly reducing the number of unnecessary colonoscopies.

The most effective treatment is the early detection of the disease, so it is important to know which groups are at risk of suffering from it:

Adults over 50 years
Patients with the following symptoms:

– Persistent rectal bleeding
– Changes in intestinal habits
– Unexplained weight loss
– Unexplained fatigue
– Anemia
– Signs of intestinal obstruction

RAID-CRC determines the presence of colorectal cancer or precursor lesions, allowing for an early and effective approach to the disease.

Colorectal cancer is associated with alterations in the gut microbiota

Although there are multiple factors that can contribute to the development of colorectal cancer, a specific association has been seen with alterations in the intestinal microbiota. RAID-CRC by combining fecal occult blood testing with the identification of a colorectal cancer-specific bacterial signature can accurately determine the presence of the disease and its previous studies.

The bacterial DNA in your sample will be analyzed in our laboratory using more than one hundred quantitative PCR reactions. The specific bacterial signature of colorectal cancer has been defined and validated through clinical studies, with a healthy reference population compared to a population suffering from the disease or precursor lesions.

Interpretation of results

In just 1 week of receiving the sample, you will receive the results report by email. Here is an example.

If the test is positive, it is essential that an expert healthcare professional evaluates your case and interprets the results properly. In addition, it is important that you be able to evaluate your case well in advance so that we can offer you appropriate advice on the day of the visit.

In the Find your specialist section you can see which professionals already know our test. Alternatively, you can refer us to a specialist you trust, and we will provide you with the training you need to know how to interpret the results report.

You can choose between 2 modalities:

RAID-CRC pack

Colorectal cancer diagnostic test. It does not include the visit, but you can tell us which professional you will visit. You can choose a specialist from the specialist board or choose one you trust, and we will send you the results report.

This product complies with the regulations of In Vitro Diagnostic Health Products

For subjects over 18 years, with symptomatology compatible with colorectal cancer or adults eligible for screening (over 50 years). It is also for subjects with no symptoms interested in undergoing a routinary control/check-up for early detection of colorectal cancer.

The test is not suitable for pregnant women or minors. The test cannot be performed if you have Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis. If you have taken an oral or intravenous antibiotic or have had a colonoscopy, colon wash or enema, a minimum of 30 days should be allowed. It is not recommended to do it during menstruation.

The technique of choice for the diagnosis of Colorectal Cancer (CRC) is colonoscopy, an invasive and expensive test. For this reason, prevention programs called “Screening Programs” have been designed. Screening is based on the early detection of CCR by non-invasive tests and if they test positive, a colonoscopy is performed. The most widely used test is the determination of fecal occult blood (Fecal Immunochemical Test). However, this method gives a high rate of false positives, which involves performing up to 30% of unnecessary colonoscopies.

RAID-CRC determines a specific bacterial signature associated with CRC along with the analysis of the fecal immunochemical test. This test has been optimized and validated in multiple clinical studies in pioneering hospitals, which corroborate that the test presents a 98% sensitivity and 92% specificity for CRC, allowing a reduction of 30% of the unnecessary colonoscopies.

RAID-CRC combines the determination of fecal occult blood with the identification of a specific intestinal bacterial signature for a more accurate and reliable result.

We recommend performing the test every year to have a more exhaustive control.

Yes, we have no scientific evidence that the stomach protector interferes with test results.
