Precision Cancer Screenings
A patented precision epigenetics test that works like a hemoglobin A1c to quantify smoking intensity, and is not fooled by vaping or nicotine replacement.
About this screening
Smoking is the leading preventable cause of death. However, like many medical disorders such as obesity and diabetes, it hides in the shadows defying detection or quantification. As a result, clinicians and concerned family members are unable to determine whether this addiction is effectively treated. Smoke Signature© changes that dynamic.
Using an approach that has been verified by hundreds of research groups, Smoke Signature© works just like a hemoglobin A1c works for diabetes, to exactly measures current smoking intensity.[1, 2] As a result, clinicians can objectively monitor cigarette per day smoking consumption and the effectiveness of treatment. In turn, patients feel freer to engage with their providers about the challenges of obtaining and maintaining smoking abstinence.
