Human papillomavirus (HPV) is one of the most common virus groups in the world (and is a manifestation of the HPV virus in the mouth, and is primarily found in the oropharyngeal complex). Specific types of oral HPV are now considered to be separate and serious risk factors for developing oral cancers. Early detection and identification of the presence or absence of oral HPV is important, as early oral HPV infections do not typically cause any clinical signs or symptoms.
OraRisk® HPV Complete Genotyping enables the clinician to establish increased risk for oral cancer and determine appropriate referral and monitoring conditions. OraRisk® HPV Complete Genotyping identifies a total of 51 types of oral HPV.
All of our salivary diagnostic tests can be ordered from the same simple oral rinse collection.
