Cervical cancer biomarker poster at IPV 2009

On Jun 12, 2009

“Evaluation of a new cervical screening biomarker panel” poster have been selected and published at the conference of The International Papillomavirus Society in Malmö.

The poster was published at The International Papillomavirus Conference 2009 in Malmö (8-14 May) that is a leading conference in the field, encompassing all areas of Papillomavirus research, from clinical vaccinology to molecular biology. The poster was published in the AUTOCAST FP7 Framework Programme.

Primary HPV screening is an emerging concept, which may fundamentally influence cervical cancer screening, making impossible to establish new high throughput automated screening methods in primary screening. Following this path, the combination of HPV testing with screening biomarkers could be the next major milestone. With the advent of a fully automated, low cost, biochemical screening method both the overall quality of the cervical screening programs could be improved and also the programs could be more accessible for women, especially in low resource countries.
We have developed a new gene expression, HPV combination panel for cervical screening.
