Sysmex Inostics HPV-SEQ

Sysmex Inostics has launched its HPV-SEQ next-generation sequencing test for measuring HPV DNA in the plasma of patients with HPV-related cancers. The test measures HPV 16 and HPV 18, two of the most common high-risk HPV strains. To assess its future utility in guiding treatment de-escalation strategies, HPV-SEQ has been employed to evaluate levels of circulating HPV alongside the radiographic assessment of therapy response in patients.
