Auria looks at protein biomarkers in your tears. These proteins are involved in the early inflammatory process and can be elevated due to any abnormalities in your breast tissue that are associated with breast cancer.
Tears, a clean and easy fluid, offer a cost-effective way to measure small cancer markers, surpassing traditional blood-based methods. Unlike DNA or blood, protein biomarkers in your tears give us a clear picture of the molecular events happening in your body.
Similar to a mammogram, this test does not tell you if you have breast cancer. It’s important to note that while the Auria test offers valuable insights, it’s not a replacement for regular medical check-ups and screenings. It’s designed to complement existing methods and provide an additional layer of information for a more comprehensive understanding of breast health.
