Protect Yourself & Your Family

Understand your genetic cancer risk with a simple saliva test

CellMax Life’s genetic cancer test has the broadest gene panel for determining risk for hereditary cancers. It analyzes 98 genes from your DNA across 25 known hereditary cancers. The test uses next generation sequencing for precision and requires only a saliva sample.

CellMax-DNA Identifies Gene Mutations for these Hereditary cancers

One test. 98 genes. 25 Hereditary Cancers.

Broadest gene panel, more hereditary cancers

The test surveys for increased genetic risk of 25 cancers including some of the most common cancers: Lung, Breast, Colorectal, Prostate, Oral, along with Stomach, Bladder, Pancreas, Kidney, Thyroid, Ovary and others.

As an example of the extensive breadth of the gene panel analyzed by CellMax Life, to assess breast cancer risk, the CellMax-DNA test not only covers BRCA1 and BRCA2 genes entirely, but also examines a number of other genes associated with breast cancer including ATM, BARD1, CDH1, CHEK2, NBN, NF1, PALB2, PPM1D, PTEN, RAD51C, RAD51D, STK11, TP53.

Mutations Can Increase Genetic Cancer Risk by 20 Times

The knowledge to guide your health plan

Everyone inherits genetic variation from their parents. Some variants, called mutations, may be harmful and cause diseases, like cancer. A single mutation can increase your risk of cancer by 20 times.

Individuals who inherit mutated genes associated with cancer:

  • Have a greater risk of getting cancer
  • Tend to get their cancers earlier in life
  • The cancer is usually more aggressive

Genetic cancer testing allows you to understand your risk and manage your health plan.



Tune your Cancer Screening Frequency

More effective healthcare

It is well-accepted that the prognosis for cancer survival is higher when detected at early stages. The survival outlook is assessed by the 5-year survival rate stratified based on stage of detection. Some examples are shown below.

  • Colorectal cancer: Stage one has more than 90% survival rate, while stage three and four detection survival is as low as 10%.
  • Breast cancer: Stage one has almost a 100% survival rate. Stage four cancer has only 22%.

Individuals who know they have inherited an increased cancer risk can work with their doctors to plan for earlier and more frequent cancer screening.

CellMax Life’s DNA test uses next generation sequencing technology to detect gene mutations known to increase lifetime cancer risk.

This patented technology, combined with years of research and development advancements enables CellMax to offer an extremely cost effective and comprehensive genetic cancer risk test, utilizing an expanded 98 gene panel using personal DNA from a saliva sample.

Case Studies:  CellMax-DNA Genetic Cancer Test

32-year-old Man learns he has Increased Risk for Hereditary Cancer

Mr. Chen, a 32-year-old resident of Kaohsiung, has a family history of cancer, which concerned him for many years. Mr. Chen took the CellMax-DNA Genetic Cancer Risk Test, and learned that he carried a genetic mutation associated with an increased risk of cancer.

“My family has a history of cancer, but no one had ever been tested for genetic cancer risk — so I had been worried for many years. When I learned I could find out whether I personally had an increased risk for hereditary cancers through a saliva test, I decided to take it.

“I found out that I do carry a genetic mutation related to increased risk of colorectal cancer. Knowing this I will begin screening earlier, and do it more frequently that I would have otherwise.”

Mr. Chen

45-year-old Doctor takes CellMax-DNA Cancer Risk Test for Prevention

45-year-old Dr. Kuo, decide to be tested for genetic risk for cancer due to its extensive genes and cancer coverage.

“My father has cancer.  As a medical doctor, I know that some cancers are caused by inherited gene mutations passed down from parents to their children; these cancer usually have their onset at early age and can be more serious.

“I found out that CellMax Life offers a saliva test analyzing 24 inherited cancers for 98 genes. The test was more extensive than other genetic cancer risk tests I had found — I decided to take it without a second thought. My test was negative, and the result relieved my worry that I had for some time.

“I want my own children to now take the same test. I believe strongly in maintaining health through prevention: If any gene mutations are found are associated with hereditary cancer, I would try to strengthen the weakness with Chinese medicine.”

Dr. Kuo

According to the U.S. National Cancer Institute, more than 4 in 10 people in the United States will get cancer in their lifetime.
