DiaCarta Inc. Receives CE Mark for QuantiVirus® HPV E6/E7 mRNA Assay
Date:3/15/2013

Hayward, CA (PRWEB) March 15, 2013

DiaCarta Inc., an in vitro diagnostic company for infectious diseases, cancer and other indications, today announced it has received CE Mark approval for its QuantiVirus® HPV E6/E7 bDNA test, a highly sensitive and specific test for the detection of 14 high-risk types of the human papilloma virus (HPV) for cervical and head and neck cancer screening.

The QuantiVirus® HPV E6/E7 bDNA test assays the mRNA expression of the viral E6 and E7 oncogenes providing a more accurate correlation of HPV infection and the potential development of cancer.

“We are very encouraged with our sales launch in China of the QuantiVirus® HPV E6/E7 test for cervical cancer screening through our China affiliate, Kodia Biotechnology Inc. and look forward to providing the QuantiVirus® HPV test in other territories as well as expanding its clinical application for head and neck cancer screening” said Dr. Aiguo Zhang, founder and CEO of DiaCarta. “Our bDNA based E6/E7 mRNA test is the most reliable tool to detect high risk HPVs directly from Pap smear for women cervical cancer screening or directly from saliva for head and neck cancer test without RNA purification and RT-PCR.”

About Human Papillomavirus (HPV)
Genital human papillomavirus (also called HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI). There are more than 40 HPV types that can infect the genital areas of males and females of which 14 types are most commonly associated with cervical cancer. These HPV types can also infect the mouth and throat where HPV plays a direct role in head and neck cancer. Most people who become infected with HPV do not know they have it so it is recommended that woman between ages 21 and 65 have regular Pap smears, which examines cervical cells for the presence of irregular and potentially pre-malignant or malignant cells, as well as testing directly for the presence of HP
