The British molecular diagnostics firm recently completely a redesign of its point-of-care system, called Q-POC, and is planning to seek a CE-IVD mark for the device later this year.

Researchers profiled cervical microbe communities in relation to HPV, HIV, and cervical cytology status, identifying microbial shifts in high-grade lesions and HIV-positive cases.

The firms said that HuaSin obtained exclusive rights to develop a fully automated HPV genotyping assay platform that uses Genomica’s technology.

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.
