New Telomerase Test
Anti-hTERT Antibody (SCD-A7)
- The sensitivity of standard urine cytology alone was 29%, whereas cytology combined with hTERT increased the sensitivity to 51%, while maintaining a specificity of 89%
- IVD test can be adapted to automated IHC platforms, and effective on ThinPrep® and Cytospin® specimens
- 500 patient Johns Hopkins study to be presented as poster at USCAP 2018
"Testing urothelial cells for the presence of hTERT is a great improvement over urine cytology alone. The presence of this biomarker is significant as it may be an indication of an early stage malignancy. This is particularly helpful if seen in cells that if not for the presence of hTERT, would be considered normal or at worst atypical, based on their appearance alone."
