WASHINGTON, DC (GenomeWeb) – By taking a community-based approach, researchers were able to boost the number of minorities who are typically underrepresented in genomic research in their studies, as they discussed during a session at the Why We Can't Wait: Conference to Eliminate Health Dispariti

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Cancer Genetics today said that it has signed a multi-year agreement with PathAdvantage Associated to offer its FHACT test, a FISH-based genomic test for detecting and managing cervical cancer, and to collaborate on research in support of the test.

Cepheid said this week that it has launched Xpert HPV, a one-hour molecular test for cervical cancer-related human papillomaviruses, in Europe after receiving CE IVD marking.

A research team from Jena University Hospital at the Friedrich Schiller University in Germany has developed a method it calls digital direct RT-PCR (DD-RT-PCR) to quantify circulating tumor cells in cervical cancer by detecting HPV-oncogene transcripts.

University of Louisville researchers have identified changes in the thermal behavior of plasma proteins that could prove useful in the detection of cervical cancer.

Persistent infection with high-risk strains of human papillomavirus can cause cervical cancer, and uninfected individuals have a low risk of developing the disease.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Cancer Genetics said today its genomic test for triaging cervical cancer patients has received approval in the US as a lab-developed test under Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments regulations.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – A study published online today in Genome Research is highlighting the havoc that human papillomavirus integration can wreak on nearby portions of the genome i

Researchers from the Dana Farber Cancer Institute have published results of a preliminary study tracking the patterns of mutations in the two histological subtypes of cervical cancer, which they are now planning to put to the test in a clinical trial of PI3 kinase inhibitors.

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Officials from the National Institutes of Health and the family of Henrietta Lacks have together developed a policy for allowing researchers to access whole-genome data from HeLa cell lines, which was
