The AMAS Test For Early Detection and Monitoring of Cancer

Following is a must read for anyone contemplating Cancer testing.

This is a follow up on my earlier posts The Depths of Deceit Mammography

Even though this cheap and safe "test is a standardized, validated assay, developed over 15 years ago"...

..."Conventional cancer treatment authorities are committed to a host of expensive but highly profitable diagnostic (and treatment) techniques (mammograms, MRIs, gastrointestinal series, etc.). Were it not for the intransigence of established authorities, the AMAS test undoubtedly would be much more widely used."...

Another test that is also overlooked which was discussed in Politics in Healing : The Suppression & Manipulation of American Medicine is yet again another safe alternative to all the expensive and/or injurious/invasive tests is as follows:

"All trophoblast cells produce a unique hormone called the chorionic gonadotrophic (CGH) which is easily detected in urine. Thus if a person is either pregnant or has cancer, a simple CGH pregnancy test should confirm either or both. It does, with an accuracy of better than 92% in all cases. If the urine sample shows positive it means either normal pregnancy or abnormal malignant cancer. Griffin notes: "If the patient is a woman, she either is pregnant or has cancer. If he is a man, cancer can be the only cause." So why all of the expensive, dangerous biopsies carried to 'detect' cancerous growths? One can only assume that Medicare pays doctors a larger fee for biopsies than pregnancy tests."

The AMAS Test For Early Detection and Monitoring of Cancer by Ron Schmid, N.D.

Most people are unaware that there is a reliable, scientifically proven laboratory blood test for detecting over 99% of all cancers. "Why haven't the doctors I see ordered this test?" people often ask me. Good question. I can only answer that this is yet another example of the resistance to innovative change that the medical establishment constantly demonstrates. Most doctors are simply unaware of the AMAS test because the powers that be ignore the test, and it remains largely unknown.

AMAS stands for "anti-malignin antibody in serum." The test is extremely sensitive; blood levels of this antibody rise early in the course of the vast majority of cancers of all types, regardless of location in the body. The test is especially useful when cancer is suspected but has not been confirmed by a biopsy.

One study involving the test was published in the journal Cancer Detection and Prevention in 1994. In 125 patients and controls, 118 were subsequently diagnosed by the time the article was published. In 21 individuals who were subsequently proven to have cancer, the AMAS test was elevated. The test was normal in 94, none of whom were shown to have cancer. In three other subjects who did not have cancer, the test was elevated when first done but a second test was normal. The other seven subjects had positive AMAS tests but remained undiagnosed at the time of the article, but all showed symptoms of cancer that likely indicated its presence.

The study was consistent with other published tests that indicate that the AMAS test is over 95% reliable on the first test, and over 99% reliable when a repeat test is performed. The test is a standardized, validated assay, developed over 15 years ago by Peter Bogovich, M.D., Ph.D. Dr. Bogovich has conducted scores of studies and published widely on the test.

Another study published in the Journal of Cellular Biochemistry in 1994 stated that levels typically rise with age and are higher in individuals at high risk for cancer because of family history, but stay within normal levels even when benign growths occur. "We demonstrated that the concentration is most markedly increased within weeks of the occurrence of malignant transformation to clinical breast cancer," these researchers wrote. This study involved breast cancer, but the test is valid for all cancer types. Other researchers have written that the test is an excellent screening method.

The AMAS test also is useful in monitoring the treatment of malignancies. Levels typically return to normal within two to three months of successful treatment. Other biological markers in the blood are much less specific and are usually not elevated early in the course of disease or recurrence. Thus the AMAS test is an excellent way to screen for and detect cancer or recurrences, and to track treatment progress during treatment. Conventional cancer treatment authorities are committed to a host of expensive but highly profitable diagnostic (and treatment) techniques (mammograms, MRIs, gastrointestinal series, etc.). Were it not for the intransigence of established authorities, the AMAS test undoubtedly would be much more widely used.

Go to:

And change your doctor to one who listens.

Biopsy also has risks (may spread a slow growing cancer) and are not always reliable. Typically prostate cancer outlives the person without much problem and is best left alone.

I am 54 and on Flowax with continuing mild BPH symptoms over the past three years. My first AMAS test result was normal.

This morning I was scolded over the phone by my Urologist for suggesting in a fax to him requesting a second AMAS blood test along with a follow up Ultrasound photo, PSA, PSA ratio, and Urinalysis. And he was very upset with me because I continue to decline his recommendation for a prostate biopsy.

How might I find an Urologist, in Austin, Texas, familiar with the AMAS, IBC and CGH tools who will listen to me on my watchfully waiting strategy for prostate health?

My doctor ordered a psa test whilst checking for Diabetes and cholesterol. Those two were negative but psa was 8 and ratio of free psa was such that the lab. said 50% chance of prostate cancer. A subsequent DRE was normal and I have no other symtoms. I am 66yo.,physically fit and sexually active with lifetime partner.
GP wants me to visit urologist and have a biopsy. I am not keen considering the possible activation of passive prostate cancer.
Is "watchful waiting", appro- priate in my case?
Is there any other type of non harmful test available in Australia?

I myself took the AMAS test after having been diagnosed with DCIS and would recommend it to others. Your article is very true and Canadian doctors did what they could to discourage it. The only thing people need to know when applying for this test is that it won't necessarily give you an affirmative answer. The way it works is that it can sometimes tell that you do HAVE cancer. But when it can't detect that, it comes back with a NORMAL setting. Normal doesn't mean a person is free from cancer. It just means he or she has to go for some other type of test. The reason the results are normal are because of one of two things: (1) You have no antibodies because you have so much cancer in your body that your body has stopped producing them, or (2) You have no antibodies because you don't have cancer. Most labs aren't very qualified for the AMAS testing either. Although it clearly says on the package "DO NOT FREEZE THE BLOOD" and I had expressed this clearly to my lab also, they froze it anyway so I had to take two tests in the same day. Thank heaven I had an extra kit because the first didn't arrive for some time and then I got them both at pretty well the same time. Otherwise I would've had to wait quite some time in my frantic state. To make matters worse, most Canadian labs have an extremely stupid policy that says that if the results from any test come back normal, they will refuse to call the patient. They don't realize that after a patient is suspected of having cancer they are under considerable stress. They don't seem to care that a patient has spent a few hundred dollars for the entire test. (It's cheaper in the States and, unlike in Canada is covered by basic medical insurance in many areas there. In Canada they will only cover the dangerous procedures). They are very very cold to things like the AMAS test here. After waiting some time for the results of the test, I called the AMAS office and asked what happened. They told me that the results had been faxed to my doctor some time ago. When I heard that I was so upset that I wasn't called after waiting with pins and needles and having spent so much money (on top of the $85 the Canadian lab charges just for drawing the blood for this test) that I went to see not my regular doctor but one of the doctors seeing "all patients" that day. My own doctor was off. I told him how very angry I was that my own doctor (who's normally very good) hadn't bothered to contact me. I was especially angry at the stupid Canadian lab policies however, knowing that the reason he hadn't contacted me was because the lab had such policies which, in this case, could've endangered my life because, at that time, I hadn't yet fully understood how the test worked and might have taken it that everything was fine. The doctor on call simply told me that there is no way to detect cancer except by biopsy and stormed out of the office, leaving me sitting there. At that point I was even more angry at the stupid Canadian system. After I got the results, I knew I had to take a second test to confirm so I went for a blood cell analysis test. That test also suggested no cancer. Cancer isn't a pretty picture. The trouble with any test, whether it's AMAS, blood cell analysis, biopsy, or whatever, is that it doesn't give you a confirmed life-long diagnosis. Just because you don't have cancer today doesn't mean you won't have it tomorrow, so you have to go back again every year or two, which I haven't done because it gets expensive. It amazes me that the Canadian government will pay for biopsies, and all the mammograms and lab tests you need, but when it comes to the AMAS test or things like blood cell analysis, it's hands down all the way. Since only about 20 of all women who undergo biopsies actually do have cancer, I didn't want to go through the terrible mutilation I read about regarding stereotactic biopsies, nor did I want the pain of being trapped on that table in a most awful way, like a torture victim with my breasts hanging through holes in a table while the needle went through and they were pulling out pieces of my breast and I couldn't possibly escape. Nor did I want the titanium chip implanted in my breast, which generally accompanies stereotactic biopsies. Nor did I want the long mammogram compression period that must take place during the whole procedure. After going through all of that, especially considering I had a low immune system to start, if I didn't have cancer, the latter would surely have ensured it many years later. There's one thing doctors still haven't learned about women, and that's that their breasts weren't designed for a lot of radiation and mutilation just to see if they have cancer. One day this procedure will be looked upon as being extremely brutal -- as brutal as the days in which they drilled holes in peoples heads to relieve them of headaches. In the meantime, I guess Canadian women will just have to put up with this nonsense (as well as ever increasing cases of breast cancer). One day I hope the Canadian medical system quits fighting against everything natural, and quits defending drug and radiation companies up to the eyeballs in exchange for better patient health. The natural tests are not only safer but are probably cheaper in the long run as well. In the end, I chose not to go for the biopsy and although a lump does appear to be growing, I'm still not quite sure of what to do because I also have two other conditions which will probably kill me anyway, due to the fact that the Canadian medical system has let the spinal condition advance to the point where it's no longer treatable, and is letting a pituitary tumour which is growing at the rate of over 1mm a year, continue to grow and grow and grow. They claim the latter could cause all kinds of really frightening problems if they took it out. So my conclusion at the end was that I have only two choices -- either put up with migraines every night and possibly eventual blindness or put up with the surgery that they have really scared me with because they obviously don't want to do it or don't feel skilled enough to do it. In other words, I have 3 choices of which way to die. Should I really be worrying about cancer when one of the other two will likely kill me within a few years anyway? At any rate, I would vouch for the AMAS test and encourage others to get it, just as long as they realize they will likely need an accompanying test of some sort to confirm it and these two tests could cost an average of $600 a year. Since I feel that would be cheaper than mammorgrams, sonagrams, interpretations of those things, and biopsies, I can't understand why the Canadian government is so strongly against this except for the fact that like everything else, the entire system is run entirely by corporations who can't stand people like the AMAS people competing with them and would in fact like to destroy the entire alternative health industry, including the availability of pills that cure rather than treat.

PS. I would like to add that to this day, my own doctor who is normally more up on things than most doctors, admits he still doesn't quite understand the results of the AMAS test. Can I blame him? These doctors are brainwashed in medical schools (generally funded by medical corporations) to close their eyes to such things and to not even attempt to learn about them. He's doing exactly what he was taught and sincerely believes he's doing well. He is, according to his CORPORATE training. But what more doctors need is PATIENT WELLNESS training, sponsored by people with true interests versus mainly financial gains. Unfortunately, due to the political systems in both of our countries such people wouldn't be permitted to train, even if they offered for free. Heard on the radio this morning that in a survey, most scientists admitted to having been politically controlled at some point in their lives. Many who have stood up for their beliefs have also lost their jobs and/or their lives.

I just had to write after reading about the AMAS test. What a waste of time and money. I found a lump and deciced to try the AMAS TEST. Ordered the kit, paid the lab to draw my blood, put on dry ice, and sent it next day air. Then I waited, and waited. No results. Calls, and e-mails, brought no answers. Was told my results would be faxed to my doctor the next day. By the way my doctor knew of the AMAS test and told me about it. To this day they never sent any results. Waste of time and money, two things I am running short of. I would say find another test.

Hi, I am 44yrs old. I just had my yearly pap and breast exam. My doctor said he felt a lump. He insist on me getting a mammagram but after what I read about them and having a biopbsy I don't want either one. What do I do, how do I find out if I have cancer or not? without doing what he says? Can an alternitive doctor do this AMAS test?

Posted by: Renee on October 30, 2008 07:33 PM


If you had a cancerous tumor removed from your breast and the cancer did not spread to the lymph nodes but, the cancer was invasive would the AMAS test be a good way to determine if there is cancer in the rest of the body? Could this test be used as a way to determine whether to have chemotherapy?

Posted by: Laurie on February 25, 2009 12:30 AM


In March I was diagnosed with infiltrating ductal carcinoma, since then I have had a bilateral mastectomy and reconstructive surgery. All lymphnodes were clear. The pathology report staged me at stage 2 because the tumor measured 2.1 x 1.8 x1.5cm. They are recommending chemotherapy for me. Would the AMAS test be a reliable source to help with the decision for chemotherapy.
