cervical cancer

Gene expression data revealed two groups of human papillomavirus (HPV)-positive oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinomas corresponding to distinct survival outcomes.

Simulated population data suggests that the lifetime risk of cervical cancer is lower for women who stop screening after a negative DNA test for oncogenic HPV.

The a single-tube, multiplex real-time PCR-based MeltPro High Risk HPV test identifies 14 high-risk genotypes of human papillomavirus  and was previously CE marked.

The so-called enVision HPV test performed well in a comparison to Roche's Cobas HPV assay, and the Singapore researchers are considering other test applications.

The probes are for use in Cancer Genetics' FISH-based HPV-Associated Cancer Test, which measures genomic changes to help triage cervical cancer patients.

Physicians can now use the Dako PD-L1 IHC 22C3 pharmDx assay to identify urothelial carcinoma patients who may benefit from the anti-PD1 immunotherapy.

In response to public comment on draft recommendations published last year, the USPSTF changed course and retained cotesting as an option.

The firm's diagnostics division was up 4 percent. Molecular diagnostics grew 7 percent, cytology & perinatal was flat, and blood screening was down 2 percent.

The Cobas HPV Test is now approved for use as a primary screening test with BD's SurePath and Hologic's ThinPrep PreservCyt Solution.

A team of researchers in Japan used a noninvasive prenatal testing platform to detect copy number alterations in about 20 percent of gynecological cancers they tested.
