VisionArray ® HPV Chip – Fast and Reliable Genotyping
The human papillomavirus (HPV) has been conclusively identified as the major risk factor for cervical cancer. It is the third most common cancer in women worldwide, with an estimated number of 530,000 new cases and 280,000 deaths each year. Over the last years the relevance of HPV in the history of oropharyngeal cancers has become more and more important which is indicated by a dramatically risen number of cancers of the oral cavity and pharynx linked to HPV. Currently more than 150 HPV types are well characterized which are classified as high-risk and low-risk types depending on the risk of progression from mild dysplasia to cancer.
