When a woman tests positive for HPV, it is vital to quickly determine whether or not she is likely to develop cervical cancer. In this segment, Dr. Carolyn Kay, Medical Affairs Leader in Cervical Cancer Solutions at Roche Diagnostics discusses a new study published in the “International Journal of Cancer” (Sep 18, 2021) that found that using Roche Diagnostics’ FDA approved CINtec PLUS Cytology dual-stain biomarker technology as a triage test can help clinicians determine who needs immediate follow-up and who would benefit from further observation and screening, a much less invasive approach.
