Approximately 5-10% of cancers are caused by inherited genetic variants (germline mutations). In addition to the well-characterized BRCA1/2, mutations in many other genes also cause a higher lifetime risk of cancer, up to 10-90 times higher than for someone without a mutation.
ACTRisk™ Genetic Test for Hereditary Cancer
ACTRisk™ is a fast and accurate genetic test that analyzes 32 genes strongly associated with 8 common hereditary cancers and 6 cancer syndromes. It provides important genetic information that helps physicians and genetic counselors to precisely evaluate cancer risk.
ACTRisk™ is most suitable for:
￭ Individuals with high risk of familial cancer
￭ Cancer patients with a family history of cancer
￭ Cancer patients without family history of cancer but have multiple tumors diagnosed before age 50
￭ Individuals with suspected risk factors for inherited cancer
