Who should be tested with the IMMray® PanCan-d test?

Only individuals at high risk for developing pancreatic cancer because of a strong family history or because of a known genetic mutation associated with pancreatic cancer should be tested with the IMMray PanCan-d test. This test should not be used as a general screening tool.*

*The IMMray PanCan-d test is not a standalone test to diagnose pancreatic cancer. Test results should be considered with other clinical findings, such as imaging and/or biopsy, to reach a diagnosis.
