Quest Diagnostics Launches Molecular Cervical Cancer Test Based on National Institutes of Health's TERC Gene Marker
Date:8/30/2012

ening is vital to detect pre-cervical cellular abnormalities. Guidelines issued in 2012 from the American Cancer Society (ACS) recommend that women of normal risk be screened for cervical cancer with a Pap test every three years between ages 21 and 29, and with a Pap and HPV test together every five years between ages 30 and 65. In the past, the ACS and other organizations recommended Pap screening as frequently as every year for normal-risk adult women depending on type of Pap test, age and other factors.

"Cervical cancer used to be a major cause of death in women in the United States, but thanks to screening, physicians can often catch and treat abnormalities before they progress to cancer," said Dr. Jones. "It is important that the medical community continue to promote clinically appropriate testing so we don't backtrack on these gains. With less frequent Pap screening of women, TERC testing is an important tool to ensure women are evaluated reliably and receive the proactive treatment that may prevent malignancy."

Quest Diagnostics is believed to be the first laboratory company with national operations and a full menu of Pap, HPV and biopsy cervical cancer tests to offer a testing service based on the TERC marker, affording physicians and patients with broad access in the United States. The new test builds on the company's growing menu of advanced molecular tests for cervical cancer. In early 2012, the company began to offer testing services to identify E6/E7 messenger RNA to help physicians identify women infected with HPV who may have a significantly increased risk of cervical cancer.
