The test measures hepatitis B viral DNA and is intended to be used to assess prognosis and response to antiviral therapies.

The assay is designed to quantitate HBV DNA in serum or plasma to assist in the treatment of chronic HBV-infected patients receiving antiviral therapy.

Qiagen's partnership and merger agreement with NeuMoDx may help it compete with high-volume molecular testing vendors such as Abbott, Hologic, and Roche.

Researchers integrated results from a pathogen-host association study with available clinical data to find variants influencing both infection responses and other disease risks.

Several companies will receive grants to develop hepatitis C molecular point-of-care and core antigen diagnostic assays.

The new assay simultaneously detects four viral targets in donated blood plasma in a single sample and can add value to the biologics development space.

Independent research teams identified and sequenced hepatitis B strains going back thousands of years from samples in Europe, uncovering now-extinct lineages.

The companies will initially plan to acquire the required regulatory approvals in India for the Genedrive HCV ID kit.

The firm noted that the premarket approval means that the three major viral load assays that most laboratories run for patients are now available on a single system.

While the virus they found appears old, the researchers found it to be closely related to modern ones, indicating that it has infected people for centuries.
