IVD Test Reagent/Kits, Molecular Assay, Infection, Virus, Human Papilloma Virus, High-Risk Type, DNA
Definition : Molecular assay reagents intended to identify high cancer risk types of human papilloma virus (HPV), of the family Papovaviridae, by detecting the deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) of the target viruses. High-risk HPV types usually infect the anogenital tract epithelium, but they can also be found in the oral mucosa, conjunctiva, and respiratory tract; the most common high-risk types include HPV types 16 and 18, but types 45 and 56 are usually included in this test. These HPV genotypes cause mucosal infections and are associated with malignancy.
