Food and Drug Administration: Approve the OnCoBlot test for cancer diagnosis

This petition had 77,308 supporters

My name is Lori, and I’m on a mission to make cancer diagnosis more affordable and less fear-inducing than our current methods. This is especially important for people who have a history of cancer within their families and people who’ve successfully treated their cancer in the past. Cancer survivors in particular should have a comfortable and inexpensive method to monitor their health status.

Right now, the most common way to screen for various cancers is by using nuclear imaging technologies such as MRI or PET-CT scans. These tests are expensive and invasive -- often requiring injections to prepare the body’s tissue for imaging.

 A less invasive and less expensive alternative to these scans is the OnCoBlot test. This blood serum test helps identify up to 25 different cancers with a single test and it is 96% accurate. Because the test hasn’t been approved by the FDA yet, it isn’t covered by most health insurance. That’s means a patient would have to pay out-of-pocket to receive it. But the out-of-pocket cost of $800 - $1000 is still far less expensive than an MRI or PET-CT scan while being equally accurate.

Please sign and share this petition to tell the FDA that cancer patients and cancer survivors deserve access to safe, accurate, cost-effective cancer diagnostic testing.
