QIAGEN and Chittaranjan National Cancer Institute Partner to Establish First Large-Scale Cervical Cancer Screening Program in Kolkata
Date:4/20/2009

opening ceremony of the 2009 Asia-Oceania Research Organization on Genital Infections and Neoplasia (AOGIN) conference in Kolkata on April 25-26. The first women are expected to be screened in June.

The impact of HPV testing on cervical cancer incidence and death in India was demonstrated in an International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) study published in the April 2, 2009 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine. The trial evaluated cervical cancer prevention tools in 130,000 women in the Maharashtra state of India, and found HPV testing to be the most effective way to reduce cervical cancer incidence when compared to either Pap (cytology) testing or VIA. The study demonstrated that a single round of HPV testing was associated with a significant reduction in the numbers of advanced cervical cancers and deaths.

QIAGEN's HPV test platform -- known as the digene HPV Test -- uses advanced molecular diagnostic technologies to identify the presence of the genetic code (DNA) of 13 high-risk, cancer-causing types of HPV. The digene HPV Test has been published in more than 300 peer-reviewed journal articles and studied in clinical trials involving more than 825,000 women worldwide. More than 40 million tests for carcinogenic HPV have been performed with the digene HPV Test, which is recognized as the "gold-standard" in HPV testing.
