Multi-Target Colorectal Cancer Screening Test for the Detection of Colorectal Advanced Adenomatous Polyps and Cancer: DeeP-C Study

Patients who are at average risk of developing colorectal cancer who are eligible for
colorectal cancer screening will be asked to collect a single stool sample for the Exact CRC
screening test and for the commercially available FIT assay. Subjects will undergo
colonoscopy within 90 days of enrollment. Representative histopathology slides from tissue
biopsied or excised during colonoscopy and representative histopathology slides resulting
from subsequent definitive surgery may be retrieved in order to be evaluated by central
pathology to confirm diagnosis and staging.

Inclusion Criteria:

1. Subject is average risk for development of colorectal cancer (as defined by the
inclusion and exclusion criteria below).

2. Subject is able and willing to undergo a screening colonoscopy within 90 days of

3. Subject is 50 to 84 years of age inclusive.

4. Subject is able to comprehend, sign, and date the written informed consent document
to participate in the study.

5. Subject is able and willing to provide stool samples according to written
instructions provided to them.

colonoscopy, or flexible sigmoidoscopy within the previous five (5) years.

4. Subject has a history of colorectal cancer or adenoma.

5. Subject has a history of aerodigestive tract cancer.

6. Subject has had a positive fecal occult blood test or FIT within the previous six (6)

Crohn's disease.

- >= 2 first-degree relatives who have been diagnosed with colon cancer. (Note:
first-degree relatives include parents, siblings and offspring).

- One first-degree relative with CRC diagnosed before the age of 60.

- Familial adenomatous polyposis (also referred to as "FAP", including attenuated

- Hereditary non-polyposis colorectal cancer syndrome (also referred to as "HNPCC"
