Landmark Study in The New England Journal of Medicine Shows HPV Testing Significantly Reduces Deaths from Cervical Cancer, Compared to other Methods Including Pap
Date:4/1/2009

ddition to being "associated with a significant reduction in the numbers of advanced cervical cancers and deaths from cervical cancer," QIAGEN's hc2 HPV testing platform "was the most objective and reproducible of all cervical cancer screening tests and was less demanding in terms of training and quality assurance," the study authors state. The study is posted to http://content.nejm.org/.

QIAGEN broadens access to HPV testing

QIAGEN's donation of 1 million HPV tests builds upon the company's programs to increase access to HPV testing and cervical cancer prevention technologies for women worldwide through QIAGENcares, a corporate social responsibility program to improve the access to better screening methods for infectious diseases in emerging and developing countries. Current commitments include donation programs, development of next generation HPV technologies, tiered-pricing initiatives and on-the-ground pilot cervical cancer screen-and-treat projects.

To ensure that HPV testing can reach women in all regions of the world, QIAGEN is working with PATH and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation to develop a new version of its state-of-the-art HPV test -- to be called the careHPV test -- for public-health programs in low-resource, developing countries. The careHPV test, currently in development, can be performed without electricity or running water and offers HPV detection results in a matter of hours -- a critical characteristic for women traveling to clinics from isolated villages and for those women who may need to be treated the same day. Both QIAGEN HPV screening technologies -- careHPV and the digene HPV Test -- are expected to play a key role in reducing cervical cancer worldwide. Both will be included in the donation program.
