A Clinician's Perspective on New Biomarker Technology to Assess Risk in Cervical Cancer Prevention
Dr. Nathalie Michaud meets with Danielle Sepulveres in San Francisco to give an update about what’s important to know about cervical cancer prevention. During this conversation, they discuss Pap cytology, HPV testing, and a new option to use advanced biomarker technology approved by the FDA in March 2020 for women with positive high-risk HPV screening results. Run from the same sample collected for Pap cytology or HPV testing, next generation biomarker cytology provides additional information that can help guide a clinician’s next step decisions for a patient.
“Whether [the biomarker test result] is positive or negative, you know what to do, and you don’t have to wait and worry” – Dr. Nathalie Michaud.
