CO-TESTING FOR THE SCREENING OF CERVICAL CANCER

In INDIA

  • Cervical cancer is the 2nd most common cancer in women aged 15 to 44 years
  • About 122,844 new cervical cancer cases are diagnosed annually
  • 5% of women in general population harbour HPV-16/18 infection

Therefore for women aged 30 to 65, Leading Health Organisations such as ACOG, ACS, ASCP & ASCCP recommend LBC+HPV together (co-testing) as the preferred approach for cervical cancer screening.

Suburban Diagnostics offers the universally recommended approach of co-testing LBC+HPV with a Difference

PAPSURE (Liquid Based Cytology)

  • Screening test to detect cervical cancer and precancerous conditions
  • Cell enrichment process separates and removes blood, mucus and other cells, reducing the risk of missed diagnosis
  • Faster turnaround time
  • Unsatisfactory rates have decreased from 0.98% in conventional smears to 0.24% in Sure Path Laboratories. (Multicentre large studies by various laboratories)
  • Same sample can be used for HPV test

HPV DNA Detection & Genotype

  • Detect 40 HPV types involved in causing precancerous lesions and cervical cancer
  • Detects all 14 High Risk (HR) types and other Low Risk (LR) types
  • HR types: 16, 18, 31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 56, 58, 59, 66 or 68 HPV 16/18 is the most carcinogenic
  • HPV genotype and accounts for 75 – 85% of all cervical cancers
  • Approximately 10 other HR HPV genotypes cause the remaining 15 – 25% of cervical cancers
