Details and patient eligibility


This is a prospective, multi-center clinical study of Multi-Cancer Early Detection (MCED) testing in cancer patients and healthy volunteers. The purpose of this study is to establish MCED platform through the analysis of whole genome sequencing of circulating DNA. The study will enroll 4,000 subjects as defined by eligibility criteria at up to 10 clinical institutions in South Korea.

Full description

AIMA is analysing whole genome sequencing data of circulating tumor DNA, combined through machine learning technique, to develop MCED platform to detect early stage cancer. The purpose of this prospective, multi-center, observational study is to validate an MCED platform for the early detection of cancers. The investigators will collect blood samples from subjects who are diagnosed as invasive cancers before treatment or from healthy volunteers.


4,000 estimated patients




19+ years old
