The Galleri Test

Imagine a test that allows you to screen for multiple cancers with a simple blood draw. Galleri, a first-of-its-kind multi-cancer early detection test, looks for numerous cancers not commonly screened for that can go unnoticed before symptoms appear. 

Galleri is a multi-cancer early detection (MCED) test that looks for a signal shared across more than 50 types of cancer. This test, offered at Darla Booth Chiropractic, is recommended for adults with an elevated risk for cancer, such as a family history or those 50 years or older. 

How does it work?

Multiple cancers shed DNA into your bloodstream, known as cell-free or circulating tumor DNA. This DNA is usually shed as cancer cells die. Using Next-Generation DNA Sequencing and machine learning, doctors can use a single blood draw (test) to look at various patterns in that DNA code and figure out two things: if a cancer signal is present and from where the cancer likely started.

Galleri can detect more than 50 types of cancer, including: 

  • Anal cancer
  • Breast cancer
  • Cervical cancer
  • Esophageal cancer
  • Kidney cancer
  • Leukemia
  • Liver cancer
  • Mesothelioma
  • Oral cancer
  • Pancreatic cancer
  • Stomach cancer
  • Uterine cancer
