incorporated by reference.
3. Description of Services
The Services currently include (i) analysis of the levels of certain biomarkers in the blood sample
you provide, and (ii) for those who agree to our Informed Consent for Research & Development
information from to a machine learning algorithm that predicts the likelihood of certain cancers
based on your biomarker analysis and other clinical factors. These Services are presently
available under the trademark “OneTest” although we may offer the Services under one or
more different trademarks or brand names in the future. Thus, any use of the term OneTest in
these Terms of Service also refers to the same or related products that may be marketed under
a different trademark or brand name.
4. Changes to these Terms of Service and the Services
At our sole discretion, we may revise and update these Terms of Service and post the updated
Terms of Service on our website www.OneTestforCancer.com. All changes are effective

9. Participation in ongoing research and development
OneTest includes algorithms that were developed using health outcomes data (i.e., whether or
not there was a diagnosis of cancer) collected approximately one year after the biomarker level
assessment from tens of thousands of individuals that received this blood test. We seek to
continuously improve our algorithms by collecting health outcomes data in a like manner
from consumers like you.
As a condition of receiving certain discounts that we may offer from time-to-time, we are
asking you to participate in this ongoing research and development and, to alert us to any
confirmed diagnosis of cancer after taking OneTest. Participation in this research and
development is optional and voluntary. If you would like to participate, we ask you to provide
only use your health outcomes information for research and development purposes with
approval from an institutional review board (IRB) and with your consent.

13. Notice of Technical Limitations of OneTest
Cancer can arise from minor genetic changes to otherwise normal cells in the body. As a result
accurate detection of cancer, especially in its early stages, and reliably distinguishing cancer
from non-cancer, poses substantial technical challenges. Thus, every test for cancer, including
OneTest, has important technical limitations that you should carefully consider before ordering
this test and interpreting the results. These limitations include the following:
- OneTest is based on our current knowledge of many diverse technical disciplines including,
without limitation, cancer genetics and biology, pathology, immunology, epidemiology,
biostatistics, bioinformatics, computational biology, and artificial intelligence. This knowledge
changes almost daily as more is learned through research and development. Thus a OneTest
report based on the current state of knowledge may be interpreted differently in the future.
- OneTest is NOT a definitive test for cancer. The only definitive test for any cancer is analysis of
biopsied tissue by a qualified pathologist.
- OneTestTM is intended as an initial screening to indicate the potential need for further follow-up
testing to confirm the presence of cancer. It is possible for an individual to have a high probability of
cancer according to the OneTestTM but not have cancer. A low OneTestTM score result should not be
used to rule out the presence of cancer.
- OneTest’s algorithms were developed based on scientific studies of a specific population (East
Asia). Thus, the interpretations you receive may be based on a population that differs from your
ethnicity or genetic background. The algorithms derived from data from an East Asian population
may not exactly translate to an American population.
- A high score (false positive) for an individual tumor marker may result from benign conditions which
are not cancer.
- False negative results may occur when a person receives a low score but has cancer. In addition,
false positive results may occur when a person receives a high score but does not have cancer.
- Every tumor is different. Every person has variations that are either unique to them or are not
well described in medical and scientific literature.
- OneTest reveals a probability, likelihood, or risk of cancer. Most of those deemed to have a
higher likelihood of cancer than the base population will not be found to have cancer.
- Repeat testing of individuals who have biomarker results at a slightly high or ambiguous level
will usually be necessary
20/20 takes its laboratory quality very seriously. Our laboratory meets quality control standards
set by the Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (CLIA). Despite our focus on quality,
problems with our sample process may occur from time to time. These problems may result
from sample misidentification, a contaminated sample or insufficient serum (blood). We
continuously perform quality control on our processes and procedures. Even so, errors may
result during data generation in the lab and in the processing of the data on servers.
Tumor marker information that you choose to share with your health professional may become
part of your medical record. That means it could be accessible to other health professionals and
information about how we handle your information and your options for disclosure of such
OneTest should supplement, but never replace, routine cancer screening tests recommended
by your healthcare professional and/or leading national medical organizations such as the
American Cancer Society and various medical specialty organizations that publish practice
guidelines. These screening tests that you should continue to receive include, without
limitation, mammograms, colonoscopies, and PAP smears. (The PSA test that is part of
OneTest is identical to those available from national lab chains).
Our Services do not incorporate a complete view of your health history. Before you act on any
health information provided through OneTest, please first consult with a healthcare
professional. In addition, not all results from OneTest can or should be acted upon. If you have
questions or concerns about your health, you should speak with a health professional.
OneTestTM is a Laboratory Developed Test (LDT) that is not currently regulated by the U.S. Food &
Drug Administration (FDA). OneTest is subject to regulation by the Center for Medicare & Medicaid
Services (CMS) and the Maryland Department of Health under the Clinical Laboratory Improvement
Amendments (CLIA). In general, CLIA approval is directed at the technical performance and
analytical validity of the test (i.e. whether the test delivers consistent results) rather than the
impact of the test on disease outcomes.
The laboratory equipment and kits used to analyze the biomarkers in OneTestTM are cleared by the
FDA for certain uses. Except for the PSA test, which is approved by the FDA for use in screening for
prostate cancer, most of the other biomarker test kits used in the OneTest are cleared by the FDA
generally for assessments of those suspected of having cancer or detecting recurrence of cancer
among those previously diagnosed.
