WHAT IS NPC GOLDTM
NPC GOLDTM is a quantitative Epstein-Barr Virus (EBV) DNA test that informs you of the EBV viral load with a draw of blood. Our test is highly sensitive because we target the BamHI-W CpG Islands specifically within the EBV virus. This makes our test useful for the screening of nasopharyngeal cancer in the early stages, even when there are no symptoms.
INTERNATIONAL QUALITY ASSURED
The technology behind NPC GOLDTM has been assessed by international quality assurance agencies and achieved top-level test results. Read more about the results here.
Analysis of Plasma Epstein–Barr Virus DNA to Screen for Nasopharyngeal Cancer
Circulating cell-free Epstein–Barr virus (EBV) DNA is a biomarker for nasopharyngeal carcinoma. The research team conducted a prospective study to investigate whether EBV DNA in plasma samples would be useful to screen for early nasopharyngeal carcinoma in asymptomatic persons.
Comparison of Circulating Tumour Cells and Circulating Cell-Free Epstein-Barr Virus DNA in Patients with Nasopharyngeal Carcinoma Undergoing Radiotherapy
We investigate here the utility of various circulating biomarkers in NPC, with a special interest in the performance of CTC enumeration as a novel biomarker against more conventional EBV cfDNA quantitation using qPCR and digital PCR (dPCR) with EBNA1 and BamHI-W as targets.
NPC GOLDTM can screen for nasopharyngeal cancer in patients with no symptoms of the disease, and monitor their post-radiotherapy conditions with just a single draw of blood. Request for a kit now.
