FM/a®, The FM Test, is the first test to diagnose fibromyalgia through a simple blood test, with results usually available in one week or less.
Most fibromyalgia patients spend an average of five painful years and thousands of dollars annually to get a fibromyalgia diagnosis. For $744, FM/a® now makes it possible to know if you have fibromyalgia in a fraction of the time and money patients currently spend seeking a diagnosis.
FM/a® The FM Test is a multi-biomarker-based test which concerns immune system white blood chemokine and cytokine patterns. Patients with fibromyalgia have a significantly dysregulated pattern regarding these proteins. Test results are based upon a 1-100 scoring system, with fibromyalgia patients having scores of 50 and above.
The sensitivity for FM/a® approaches 93% and its specificity exceeds 90%. FM/a®’s sensitivity is comparable to that of the HIV blood test. And by comparison the rheumatoid arthritis blood test is only 50 percent sensitive. No medical test is 100 percent accurate.
