About ARCHITECT HE4 Assay

The ARCHITECT HE4 assay is designed to be used as an aid in monitoring recurrence or progressive disease in patients with epithelial ovarian cancer, and must be used in conjunction with other clinical data.  The ARCHITECT HE4 assay should not be used as a cancer screening test.  In addition, certain types of cancer (e.g., mucinous or germ cell tumors) rarely express HE4, and the use of the ARCHITECT HE4 assay is not recommended for monitoring patients with those types of cancer.

About Ovarian Cancer

Ovarian cancer is the leading cause of death from gynecological cancers and the fifth-leading cause of cancer death in women. An estimated one in 71 women will develop ovarian cancer in their lifetimes.  Women who are postmenopausal are at the greatest risk for ovarian cancer.
