However, an expert cautions that this test should be considered as being under clinical investigation.

“The blood test, which will be prescription only, will be available initially through innovative partner health systems like Providence, as well as medical practices, and self-insured employers,” said Leigh Strope, director of corporate communications at GRAIL.

“Providence’s vision is to integrate compelling diagnostic solutions like the Galleri test into clinical care to help drive earlier detection to try to improve and save lives,” she said.

On its website, GRAIL notes that the Galleri blood test is recommended for use in adults with an elevated risk for cancer, such as those aged 50 or older. It is intended to detect cancer signals and to predict where in the body the cancer signal is located.
