Blood Test for Early Detection of Breast Cancer Using Todos Medical -Breast 1(TM-B1) Assay


Blood samples from a total of 200 women in two cohorts will be collected and analyzed by TM-B1 assay, which is based on TBIA (Total Biochemical Infrared Analysis) to confirm the presence of cancer. These two cohorts will yield 75 healthy women with no pathological findings, 75 women diagnosed as having benign breast tumor and 50 women diagnosed as having breast cancer.

Study Type

  • Study Type: Observational
  • Study Design
    • Time Perspective: Prospective
  • Study Primary Completion Date: May 1, 2019

Detailed Description

Prospective, two arms, observational, blinded, cohort study enrolling 200 women which intended to validate the cut-off points between women with malignant tumors, benign tumors, and women without tumors (controls) and to validate the sensitivity and specificity of TM-B1 for the detection of an invasive breast tumor.

Two cohorts will be tested with TM-B1. The cohorts will differ in the percentage of women that are expected to yield a positive finding for breast cancer. Any finding in TM-B1 will not influence medical standards of care.


  • Diagnostic Test: Screening Population
    • Blood samples taken from screening population
  • Diagnostic Test: Breast Cancer Population
    • Blood samples taken from Breast Cancer population

Arms, Groups and Cohorts

  • Screening Population
    • Cohort 1:Screening Population – Women presenting for routine XRM and / or breast US. Participants will be followed for one year and the outcome of those who undergo an annual XRM / breast ultrasound will be recorded.
  • Breast Cancer Population
    • Cohort 2:Breast Cancer Population – Women who were diagnosed with malignant breast tumors, as determined by biopsy, and have not yet begun any treatment for the disease.

Clinical Trial Outcome Measures

Primary Measures

  • This study is intended to evaluate the sensitivity and specificity of the TM-B1 test compared to the Gold Standard diagnostic methods and clinical evaluations based on Digital X-Ray Mammography (XRM), and / or ultrasound, and / or MRI and / or pathology.
    • Time Frame: Timepoint 1, day 1
    • the subject’s blood (Groups 1 and 2)will be tested for the presence of breast cancer

Secondary Measures

  • For asymptomatic women who have dense breast tissue (parenchymal density > 50% on XRM), evaluate the performance, in terms of sensitivity and specificity, of the TM-B1 test and XRM together as a breast cancer screening procedure compared to the XRM alone
    • Time Frame: Timepoint one, day 1
    • The subject’s blood (Groups 1 and 2) will be tested for the presence of breast cancer
