Colorectal Cancer Screening Blood Test

Now Open in Rockville, MD

Colorectal cancer (CRC) is the third most common cancer diagnosed in both men and women in the U.S. and the third most common annual cause of death due to cancer. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends screening average-risk adults for colorectal cancer starting at age 50 and then regularly thereafter.

Current screening methods are time consuming and, in the case of colonoscopy, can be invasive. Meridian is enrolling adults age 60 to 84 years with no history of colorectal cancer for an investigational blood test intended for early detection of CRC.

Eligible participants…

  • Must be age 60 to 84
  • Must NOT have undergone a colonoscopy within the past 9 years
  • Must NOT have completed Cologuard or Epi proColon testing within the previous 3 years
  • Must NOT have a history of colorectal cancer
  • Must NOT have a known diagnosis of inflammatory bowel disease
  • May receive compensation for time and travel
  • Do not need insurance to join this study
