hPG80 Logo

hPG80 Cancer Screening test; Recommended for people with a high risk of cancer (age over 45, family history of cancer, smokers, etc)

3rd Medical Opinion; In case of a major difference between the first and second opinion

Tele-ICU: command centers staffed with intensivists and critical care nurses who electronically aid and deliver real-time information to frontline clinicians

hPG80 is an early cancer detection test developed by the brilliant Prof. Dr. Dominique Joubert, researcher and executive board member of ECS Progastrin, France. This revolutionary test is the only blood-based tumor marker to detect more than 16 types* of cancer via a blood test to date. It also detects cancer earlier than any other test. This is because hPG80, or circulating progastrin, is released by cancer stem cells. hPG80 is essential for the survival and growth of cancer.

Having such a routine cancer screening is extremely important for at-risk persons. Its measurement detects the presence and the activity of cancer in all stages. 

Factors that increase the risk of cancer include but are not limited to: being 45 years old and above, having a family history of cancer, lack of physical activity, unhealthy diet, smoking, drinking alcohol, and more.

 

Cancer screenings are essential for such people, as cancer usually does not present any symptoms until later stages when it is more challenging to treat. Undergoing a routine hPG80 cancer screening test increases remission rates and saves lives, time, and money.
