Want A Highly Accurate, Non-Invasive Cancer Test?

Thrive-JeffBell_Close_Cropped_Headshot_10-29-2013For a number of years most parts of Europe have enjoyed a very accurate, safe and non-invasive cancer test.  No x-rays, no expensive scans and nothing more unpleasant or dangerous than a blood test.  It is known as an AMAS test, or “Anti-Malignin AntibodySerum” test.

Over the past few years this test has gained increasing recognition and popularity in the United States.  There is good reason for this.

It is far less expensive than the various scans used to detect cancers.  The cost for the test, including drawing the blood sample is approximately $200.00.  Compare this to most cancer scans, which cost $1,000.00 an up.  Further, it is safe, whereas most scans expose your body to huge doses of radiation, which can of course cause cancer as well as general tissue damage.

At present there is only one lab in the United States that does the actual testing – Onco Lab Inc in Boston.  However, you can have the sample drawn and shipped to them by most local labs around the country.

Here are 2 important tips that will help you to get the most accurate results possible:   Get the AMAS test sample drawn only by a lab that knows how to pre-process the sample for that test.  They need to spin it down a special way and then pack it on ice and FedEx it to OncoLabs.  There are plenty of facilities that know how to do this.  Call OncoLabs and ask them for the nearest ones to you.  You can get their customer service number from their web site when you go there to download the requisition form.  While you are asking about the nearest qualified lab you can ask them to send you the appropriate collection kit, which they will do free of charge.

Secondly, always get the sample drawn on a Monday through Thursday, before mid-morning, so that the local lab has plenty of time to prepare it and get it out in that day’s FedEx pickup.  Never have it drawn on a Friday or Saturday – you don’t want the sample sitting around in a Fed Ex facility or in a receiving area over the weekend.

To learn more about this test, and to download brochures as well as requisition forms that your physician can sign for you, visit the Onco Lab Inc web site.


To your health!

P.S.  Lately, I have gotten a number of questions from both clients and practitioners, wanting to know more about the test.  Not surprisingly, the conventional medical establishment in the U.S.A. has not widely accepted it.  Instead, they have raised a host of objections.  This clearly gets well into the politics and economics of cancer in the U.S.  Some of the objections are easily resolved by just understanding clearly when and how to use the test, and when it is useful and when it is not.  Others of the objections are simply not valid.  That said, I think the best way to get your questions answered is to contact Onco Labs, directly.  You can find the contact information on their web-site, but to make it easier, here it is:

Oncolab, Inc.
36 The Fenway
Boston, MA  02215

    I have heard that this AMAS test is extensively used in Europe and in many other parts of the world. I know that the German cancer clinics use it to confirm cancer and the confirm remissions. Why is it not more extensively used in the U.S.A., and why don’t most health insurers in the U.S. cover it?

    Also, I understand that it is very accurate for tumor-forming cancers. Does it also work for luekemia, lymphoma and other cancers that don’t tend to form tumors, at least not until very late stage?

    Thanks for all your great information.

      Hi Darci,

      Thanks for a great question. (Actually, 2 good questions.) You are correct that the AMAS test is used extensively in many parts of the world, especially in countries where cancer care and treatment is far more advanced than that practiced by conventional medicine in the United States of America. It is a simple blood test that looks for cancer markers. It is non-invasive, relatively inexpensive and highly accurate. It is being recognized and used more and more in the United States, but it is still very much under-utilized. Patients and practitioners who are well-informed about options other than those offered by the mainstream practice in the US are demanding this test more and more often. So its use is increasing. The benefits it offers at no risk and low cost are just too compelling for it not to be made more available.

      I do not know why health insurers mostly do not cover the AMAS test. (A few do, and more and more are adding it to the list of diagnostics that are covered.) One would think that the health insurers would jump on this since it has the potential to improve the care of those where cancer is either present and under treatment or where it is suspected. And it could save the health insurers great sums of money by providing safe, accurate cancer detection at far lower costs than any of the diagnostics that are currently in use. So I don’t know why they have not demanded that the practioners they reimburse use it much more extensively.

      Yes, the AMAS test will work to detect leukemias and other blood-borne, as well as lymphatic cancers. It works for all known cancers, except in very, very late stage, and particularly where there have been a number of cycles of remission and return of cancers. In those patients, the AMAS test is not known to be accurate.

      To your health!

    Recently a physician explained that he did not see the value in the AMAS test because if it did find a cancer, it would not tell one where in the body the cancer was.

    To me this truly misses the point. True, the AMAS test does not indicate where in the body the cancer or cancers might be. But one opf the great challenges in cancer treatment, whether by conventional, alternative or complimentary means, is knowing if one is in remission or if there is a recurrence. The AMAS test is a valuable tool for doing just that. It is inexpensive, non-invasive and highly accurate. If the AMAS test comes back negative for cancer, then that might be a reason to forgo more expensive and especialy invasive tests. Or if it does come back positive for cancer that might be a good reason to proceed with more extensive diagnostics.

    At any rate, I have used this test for myself, family members, as well as recommending it for my clients for years.

    Another objection that comes up is that some cliam the test has not been shown to be accurate. This is simply false. It has an excellent track record for accuracy. It is routinely used at many of the very best cancer clinics all throughout the world. Also, even conservative organizations, such as the FDA and Medicare have approved it. (If you are on Medicare you can even get the test fully paid for!)

    I am getting the finishing touches put on a paper that discusses possible objections to the AMAS test from a well-regarded pathologist. I will post that paper on this site as soon as it has been completed. Please check back in a week or so.

    To your great health!

    I was recently diagnosed with stage 1B enodcervical cancer. I am quite
    healthy otherwise and only went in for my pap smear. The previous pap smear was 2 years ago. It is not an option for me to have surgery,
    chemo or radiation as I do not believe any those forms for treatment.
    I am going to see a ACAM (AmericanChineseMedicineAssocation) Dr.
    in 2 weeks, but I also am studying the Hallelujah recovery diet. I wondered
    how I would know if I was cancer free without going in for more of those
    tests, but it seems I came to the right place. Thank you. Any comments
    from you would be helpful. Joy

      Hi Joy,

      Thanks for your very forthright post here. I am sorry that you are in a potentially difficult health situation. However, I firmly believe that there are sensible, effective and good ways to deal with this. Here, I can say that I think for an early stage cancer like this, the AMAS test is an excellent, non-invasive way to keep track of the cancer – see whether it is going away, getting worse, or.

      However, I feel obligated to share with you that in the many years I have been researching and practicing, I have seen many different alternative approaches to curing cancer. Based on what I have seen I would not trust my life to most of them. That said, there are a few appraoches that seem to work. They are comprehensive approaches that really cover all the bases. If you want to know more I would encourage you to contact me directly. If you would like to take advantage of my experience please e-mail me directly at: jeff@myhealthoptimizer.com

      To your full recovery and great health!

    I cannot find any place for accessing the AMAS test from Portugal (or from any other european country as a matter of fact). Does anyone have a clue on how to find it. Many thanks.

      Great question! I do not know what is available in Portugal. However, I have clients in other parts of Europe who have gotten the AMAS test. One way is to contact Oncolab in Boston in the U.S.A. and ask them for the nearest certified lab that can draw the sample, prepare it and get it safely shipped to the U.S.A. Here is their web site so you can get the contact information that you will need: http://www.oncolabinc.com/

      And if you do have cancer concerns, or (hopefully not), find that you do have it, definitely consider getting in touch with me. I don’t make it too obvious on this web site, but that is my area of specialization and has been for at least the last 20 years.

      To your great health!

    Great! There are lots of people, including alternative practitioners, doctors, and those looking to get well and stay well who do not know about this. So sharing it is a great idea. Thanks!

    It may be harder to get the test done if you are in parts of Europe and some other parts of the world. But it is worth the effort. I have clients in the Netherlands and even one in Northern Africa who found a way. They are glad they did. You can always call OncoLab for advice on how to get the test done if you are in a location where that might be a challenge.

    To your great health!

    Would the test work on stage 3c metastatic breast cancer?

    I had natural cures and my number came out at 53
    My holistic doctor said it read “cancer free”

    My family said it’s not for me and it’s inaccurate.
    Please help me as others who used it for breast cancer used this system.
    Thank you

      Hi J,

      First, sorry to take so long to reply. We had a technical problem which prevented me from getting the usual notices for pending questions. I apologize for that.

      The AMAS test is very accurate, (more so than most other tests), when properly used. However there are really strict guidelines that must be followed for it to be accurate. I have an article that explains this in great detail. You can request this and I will send it to you.

      I am not sure what test you refer to when you refer to a value of “53”. What test was that?

      There are too many variables here for me to give you any specific advice or help. However, if you would like some more specific help, please contact me. My e-mail address is all over the place on this site. Send me an e-mail, giving me some background and I will be glad to help you.

      To your great health!

    Hi Jeff,
    Do we need a doctor to sign the test form? What if we don’t have one? Will my oncologist sign it? Will He know what to do with the results since I have opted out of conventional treatment?


    • Jeff Bell

      Hi Jane,

      Thanks for several great questions.

      As far as I know, in all of the states in the U.S.A. a healthcare practitioner with “prescriptive rights”, that is one who can sign requisitions for tests involving blood draws, will be needed. However, in most states, this need not be a medical doctor. A chiropractor, a nurse practitioner, a naturopath, and some other healthcare professionals may be able to sign for this test in your state.

      Some oncologists are willing to sign for this test and some are not. So I am not sure about yours. If he or she is open-minded at all, there is a lot of research on the http://www.Oncolabinc.com site. It is compelling. You might also point out that the AMAS test is FDA approved, and well enough accepted so that it even qualifies for Medicare reimbursement!

      If you do get this done and are not sure what it means, feel free to share the results with me and I will be happy to help you.

      To your great health!

    Hi Jeff,

    I am in an alternative procedures. and improving my immune system. Is AMAS test ok for the prostate cancer? Do you know which lab in Philippines can do this test?

      Hi Jo,

      I think it may be difficult to get the AMAS test in the Philippines. However, you are in luck. the Navarro Medical Clinic is in the Philippines and offer an excellent general cancer tracking test that you can use instead. You can find them on-line and get all the details.

      To your great health!
