AMAS Cancer Test2019-01-17T14:21:18+02:00

The AMAS test measures serum levels of AMA, an antibody found to be elevated in most patients with a wide range of active non-terminal malignancies. The initial study performed by SmithKline Laboratories supports the fact that Anti-Malignin Antibody is elevated almost regardless of the site or cell type of the malignancy; that is AMA, a general transformation antibody, not just one particular kind of cancer.

AMA is the antibody to Malignin, a 10,000 Dalton polypeptide which has been found to be present in most malignant cells regardless of cell type or location. The AMAS cancer test measures a well-defined antibody whose serum levels rise early in the course of the disease. In some cases the AMAS test has been positive (elevated) early, i.e. 1 to 19 months before clinical detection. On the other hand, since antibody failure often occurs late in malignancy, elevated antibody is then no longer available as evidence of the presence of antigen and therefore, late in the disease, the AMAS test cannot be used as a diagnostic test but may be useful for monitoring.

AMAS Cancer Test, Biomedic clinic

A common clinical situation involves signs or symptoms suggesting a disorder which may or may not be malignant. While neither AMAS nor any other clinical laboratory test can by itself answer this question, AMAS results may help the physician in the diagnostic process.

Physicians around the whole world are recommending and administering the AMAS cancer test on a regular basis for patients at high risk for cancer, and for follow up purposes on patients already diagnosed and/or treated for cancer.

    Can I get the test done for myself? Do you have lab services for the NW USA? How much does it cost?

    I have known about this test for years and I’m still puzzled as to why it is not being used more frequently!

      Dear Bonnie,

      You can contact directly el laboratory which perform this test. This is their Website Oncolab. They are located in Boston.

      This is a highly recommended test though it’s not used because there is not much information about it.

      Thank you and Best Regards
