16:05 EDTRHHBYHealth Canada approves Roche's HPV test for screening cervical cancer
Roche announced that Health Canada approved the cobas 4800 HPV Test for use as a first-line primary screening test for cervical cancer in women 25 and older. Roche has also launched the fully automated CINtec PLUS test to improve the detection and early intervention of pre-cancerous cervical disease. The Health Canada approved CINtec PLUS cytology test helps identify women with high-grade pre-cancerous cervical lesions who need immediate colposcopy. Roche's portfolio of cervical cancer screening products provides the most comprehensive strategies for cervical cancer prevention and treatment. The cobas 4800 HPV Test provides both pooled high-risk HPV DNA results and individual detection of HPV 16 and HPV 18, the two types responsible for about 70% of cervical cancer. Health Canada's decision to approve the expanded use for the cobas 4800 HPV Test was based on results from the landmark ATHENA trial, which enrolled more than 47,000 women. The study demonstrated that one in four women who are HPV 16 positive will have cervical disease within three years and that nearly 1 in 7 women with normal Pap cytology who were HPV 16 positive actually had high-grade cervical disease that was missed by cytology.
