OncoE6TM also can detect HPV caused oral cancer. Michael Douglas (movie star) recently caused a big uproar when he attributed his oral cancer (diagnosed in 2010) to HPV. This revelation highlights that oral cancers are on the rise, in part from a rise in HPV infection despite a decline in traditional risk factors like alcohol and tobacco consumption. Currently, there is no easy way to distinguish between oral cancers caused by HPV versus those that are not, an important distinction because treatment is different. Investigators from the German Cancer Research Center reported that the OncoE6TM Oral Test can easily and accurately determine which oral cancers are caused by HPV in a single step without extensive, invasive and expensive work up.
Arbor Vita reported exciting new products in development to address unmet medical needs world-wide including a new generation of OncoE6TM Cervical Test with expanded HPV type coverage.
The OncoE6TM Cervical Test carries the European Union CE Marking of quality and is available in many parts of the world. The OncoE6TM Oral Test is available for research purposes. For more information, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
