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.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
With the proliferation of connected devices underpinning new Internet of Things systems, Brandon Schulz, Director of Luxoft IoT – Retail, will be looking at the transformation of the retail customer experience in brick and mortar stores in his session at @ThingsExpo. Questions he will address include: Will beacons drop to the wayside like QR codes, or be a proximity-based profit driver? How will the customer experience change in stores of all types when everything can be instrumented and analyzed? As an area of investment, how might a retail company move towards an innovation methodolo...
Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as soon as they are needed to take action.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products. In his session at @ThingsExpo, David Friedman, CEO and co-founder of Ayla Networks, will discuss how when sensors start generating detailed real-world data about products and how they’re being used, smart manufacturers can use the data to create additional revenue streams, such as improved warranties or premium features. Or slash...
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, will introduce the technologies required for implementing these ideas and some early experiments performed in the Kurento open source software community in areas ...

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
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. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo, November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be.
The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
With the Apple Watch making its way onto wrists all over the world, it’s only a matter of time before it becomes a staple in the workplace.
