Attention Adults 65+: Participate in a clinical research study to test a new, non-invasive, in-home diagnostic screening for the early detection of colorectal cancer (CRC) Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the second leading cancer killer in the United States. The disease is often considered the most preventable, but least prevented cancer. Older adults, especially, are more likely to get colorectal cancer, with most new diagnoses occurring in people 65 and older. Colorectal cancer is highly treatable if found early, but more than 40 percent of adults age 50 and older have not been screened as recommended. Now, an investigational, non-invasive, in-home screening test, developed by Exact Sciences in collaboration with Mayo Clinic, is being studied in Phoenix and could offer a new screening option for the early detection of colorectal cancer, if approved by the FDA. For men and women between the ages of 65-84 who may be interested in participating in the research study, please call 1-800-949-8292. Qualified study participants may be eligible for compensation. For more information, please call 1-800-949-8292 or visit www.exactsciences.com Disclosure: Mayo Clinic and some of the investigators associated with this research have a financial interest in the technology being studied in this research.
