How Cologuard® can help
* Cologuard sensitivity, per stage of cancer: I: 90% (n=29); II: 100% (n=21); III: 90% (n=10); IV: 75% (n=4)6
† Cologuard performance in adults ages 45-49 is estimated based on a large clinical study of patients 50 and older. False positives and false negatives may occur. In this clinical study, 13% of people without cancer received a positive result (false positive) and 8% of people with cancer received a negative result (false negative)5,6
