The supplement adds a collection vial to the BD Onclarity test and includes performance data for the BD Viper LT and the BD COR Systems.

The researchers found that changes in histone modification at HPV integration events were correlated with upregulation of nearby genes and endogenous retroviruses.

The expanded test can be used for genotype risk-based patient monitoring to prevent over-treatment, BD has said.

The test, which is used to screen for cervical cancer, was previously approved by the agency for use with the Cobas 4800 system.

Profiling microbial communities in cervicovaginal samples from women carrying high-risk HPV strains, researchers found possible markers of pre-cancer progression.

In PLOS this week: signs of selection on microRNA targets, HPV sequences as markers of cervical cancer, and more.

The system showed good performance for cervical samples as well as orophyrengeal samples, and required no extraction step.

The flow cytometry-based assays were developed by Menlo Park, California-based IncellDx to run on Beckman Coulter instrumentation.

The assay, which received premarket approval last year, detects 14 high-risk HPV types and individually identifies and reports HPV genotypes 16, 18, and 45.

Exome sequences from dozens of cervical cancer tumor or primary cell line samples revealed recurrent alterations affecting ERBB2/HER2 and PIK3CA pathways.
