Life-saving technology

With the aim of making this life-saving technology available to all Canadians even after the COVID-19 pandemic recedes, Project ACTT is also:

  • Generating health economics data to accelerate government health coverage of ctDNA testing
  • Enhancing Canexia Health’s ctDNA test to cover more solid tumor cancer types
  • Localizing testing access by training laboratory staff to conduct testing in-house

For thousands of cancer patients each year, this minimally-invasive blood draw can be performed instead of surgical tissue biopsy to enable oncologists to select treatment options.

A Global Blueprint

Using Project ACTT as a blueprint, Canexia Health is now building an ecosystem of partners to replicate the model globally and offset burdens on health systems by ensuring all eligible cancer patients have access to life-saving testing.

Canexia Health’s ctDNA test, Follow It®, offered through a growing network of global partners, is commercially available and detects close to 90% of clinically actionable mutations in all cancer types. Further, Canexia Health offers a unique partnership model for local laboratories to set up biomarker testing in-house quickly and effectively. Canexia Health provides its technology and methodology for labs to run testing in-house, while also providing a complete bioinformatics reporting pipeline.

Partner with us

Partnering with Canexia Health is a cost-effective way to provide quality precision oncology testing and supports efforts to establish and secure reimbursement in localities. This will enable hospitals and laboratories to run ctDNA testing in-house, leading to a sustainable solution regardless of COVID-19 and other health system impacts.

We are seeking to further build our consortium of global pharmaceutical, laboratory, academic, and oncology partners for:

  • Sample collection
  • Bringing ctDNA testing in-house
  • Program funding support
  • Health economic studies
  • In-country health system expertise
