Roche anuncia la indicación de marca CE expandida para la prueba del VPH cobas® 4800

- Roche anuncia la indicación de marca CE expandida para la prueba del VPH cobas® 4800 apoyando su uso para la exploración primaria del cáncer cervical  

-- La detección del ADN del VPH encuentra la enfermedad que no detecta la citología Pap

PLEASANTON, California, 28 de noviembre, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Roche (SIX: RO, ROG; OTCQX: RHHBY) ha anunciado hoy una indicación de marca CE expandida para la prueba del VPH cobas® 4800. La indicación recientemente expandida para la prueba del VPH cobas® 4800 como exploración primaria significa que ya no se requiere la citología Pap como un test conjunto o previo en países que acepten una marca CE. La infección persistente con el papilomavirus humano es la principal causa de cáncer cervical en mujeres. La indicación expandida está respaldada por los datos que se presentarán en la International Papillomavirus Conference, del 30 de noviembre al 6 de diciembre de 2012, en San Juan, Puerto Rico.

"La prueba del VPH ofrece un nivel más sensible de exploración que la prueba Pap. Mientras que la citología busca células anormales, una prueba VPH busca la presencia de ADN del VPH", dijo Eduardo Franco, director, de la División de Epidemiología del Cáncer, McGill University, Montreal, Canadá. "La prevalencia de VPH significa que muchas mujeres pueden tener resultado positivo, de modo que es importante identificar también las que más riesgo tienen de progresar a un cáncer cervical. La genotipificación para los tipos de VPH 16 y 18 ofrece una especificidad adicional suficiente para identificar a las mujeres de más riesgo y ahorra al resto posibles intervenciones innecesarias. Los dos genotipos de VPH, 16 y 18, suponen el 70% de los casos del cáncer cervical".

La prueba del ADN del HPV se ha utilizado más tradicionalmente como una co-prueba o test reflejo para un resultado citológico anormal o límite. Mientras que la exploración citológica ha reducido drásticamente la prevalencia de cáncer cervical en las últimas décadas, tiene limitaciones debido a la baja sensibilidad y la naturaleza subjetiva de la interpretación de los resultados. Sin embargo, los estudios muestran que la prueba del ADN del VPH es más sensible que la citología al detectar enfermedad, algo importante en una exploración de primera línea. En el estudio de referencia ATHENA, se muestra que la prueba del VPH cobas® 4800 encuentra enfermedad que no detecta la citología: 1 de cada 10 mujeres que dieron positivo en los genotipos de VPH 16 y 18 por la prueba del VPH cobas® 4800 de Roche ya presentaban evidencia de pre-cáncer cervical, aunque la citología fuera normal.  

Aproximadamente 275.000 mujeres en el mundo mueren de cáncer cervical cada año, y muchos países están en proceso de realizar pruebas de ADN del VPH como una sustitución para la citología. "Pasar al uso de la prueba del VPH cobas® 4800 como exploración primaria permite a los países implementar estrategias que detecten más enfermedad con menos intervenciones médicas, permite a los médicos tratar mejor a sus pacientes y reduce el coste económico para el sistema sanitario", dijo Paul Brown, jefe de Roche Molecular Diagnostics.

La prueba del VPH cobas® 4800 es la única prueba aprobada por la FDA validada clínicamente que simultáneamente proporciona resultados sobre los conocidos genotipos "de alto riesgo" y resultados individuales sobre los genotipos de mayor riesgo, HPV 16 y HPV 18, dando tres resultados en solo una prueba. La prueba del VPH cobas® 4800 tiene un proceso del flujo de trabajo de preparación de muestra totalmente automatizado, y funciones de eficiencia únicas que permite un mayor rendimiento, haciéndolo adecuado para programas de exploración de alto volumen.

"Como organización comprometida con la salud de la mujer, Roche Diagnostics se dedica a mantener a las mujeres sanas y mejorar el cuidado a los pacientes", dijo Paul Brown. "Combinada con nuestros productos desde la adquisición empresarial de mtm anunciada el año pasado, Roche cuenta con una amplia cartera de prevención del cáncer cervical que redefine la exploración del cáncer cervical y asesora con más efectividad sobre las decisiones de tratamiento a pacientes". 

Conferencia internacional sobre el virus del papiloma
Roche presentará los datos que respaldan la indicación expandida de la prueba de VPH cobas® 4800 así como la cartera del cáncer cervical más amplia de Roche en la Conferencia Internacional del Virus del Papiloma, del 30 de noviembre al 6 de diciembre de 2012 en San Juan, Puerto Rico.

Acerca de la prueba de VPH cobas® 4800 y el sistema cobas® 4800

La prueba de VPH cobas® 4800 es una prueba cualitativa in vitro para detectar el virus del papiloma humano (VPH) en muestras de pacientes. La prueba utiliza la amplificación del ADN diana mediante reacción en cadena de la polimerasa (PCR) y la hibridación de ácidos nucleicos para detectar en un único análisis catorce genotipos de VPH de alto riesgo; identifica específicamente 14 tipos de VPH de alto riesgo, y al mismo tiempo detecta genéricamente los otros genotipos de alto riesgo (31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 56, 58, 59, 66 y 68). Actualmente está disponible en los EE.UU. y en todos los países que reconocen la marca CE.

El sistema cobas® 4800 está diseñado para ofrecer nuevos niveles de eficiencia analítica y relevancia diagnóstica. El sistema ofrece una automatización completa que no requiere la presencia de un operador y puede realizar hasta 282 pruebas en menos de 12 horas, lo que permite un análisis rápido de pruebas de cribado de infección por VPH que satisface las necesidades de la mayoría de laboratorios de análisis clínicos.

Acerca del virus del papiloma humano y el cáncer cervical
La infección persistente por el virus del papiloma humano (VPH) es la causa principal del cáncer de cuello de útero (cáncer cervical) en las mujeres; el VPH está implicado en más del 99% de los casos en todo el mundo. Según el Instituto Nacional del Cáncer estadounidense, cada año se dan en ese país 12.200 nuevos casos de cáncer cervical y se producen 4.210 fallecimientos por esa enfermedad. La Organización Mundial de la Salud estima que en todo el mundo son unos 470.000 los nuevos casos de cáncer cervical cada año.

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...

"Matrix is an ambitious open standard and implementation that's set up to break down the fragmentation problems that exist in IP messaging and VoIP communication," explained John Woolf, Technical Evangelist at Matrix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC, and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) i...
The 3rd International @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the most profound change in personal and enterprise IT since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago. All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices - computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors - connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate.
