Essential Health Testing

The iHelp Study 

Personalised cancer risk assessment, prevention and wellbeing.

The aim of this project by Manchester University (Prof Ken Muir and Dr Li Lophatananon) is to evaluate the use of a cancer risk-based assessment to promote health and wellbeing.

The trial will  inform participants of their genetic predisposition to cancer (as assessed by a polygenic SNP score) and the amount of methylation of their DNA.  This will give insights into environmental and lifestyle exposures together with a measure of their biological age which is an emerging marker of more general health and rate of ageing.

All participants will be given a free FitBit (accelerometer) watch which will be connected to and monitored by the trial.

A blood test on the night will be analysed and used in conjunction with the FitBit data to supply the above information completely confidentially to each participant.

You can chose to be part of this programme along with your Essential Health Tests. Once you have booked your main tests on the Booking Site, you will be able to opt into the trial.
