RPC’s Onko-Sure IVD cancer test is a simple, non-invasive, patent-pending and regulatory-approved in vitro diagnostic (IVD) test used for the detection and monitoring of the treatment and/or recurrence of various types of cancer. The test enables physicians and healthcare professionals to effectively detect and/or monitor certain types of cancers by measuring the accumulation of Fibrin and Fibrinogen Degradation Products (FDP) in the blood. FDP levels rise dramatically with the progression of cancer. Onko-Sure® is cleared by the US FDA for the treatment and/or recurrence monitoring of colorectal cancer and by Health Canada for the detection, treatment and/or recurrence monitoring of lung cancer.
