Rastreio por FIT

O cancro colorretal (CCR) é um dos cancros mais frequentemente diagnosticados. As boas notícias são que a incidência e a mortalidade do CCR podem ser significativamente reduzidas em caso de deteção precoce.

Os testes imuno-histoquímicos fecais (faecal immunochemical tests, FIT) são não invasivos e podem detetar sangue invisível a olho nu nas fezes. Dada a sua simplicidade, os FIT são atualmente considerados a melhor opção não invasiva para rastreio do CCR.

Invista um bocadinho de tempo na sua própria saúde realizando o FIT para prevenir ou detetar precocemente o cancro do cólon. Para mais informação, visite a nossa página de internet “FIT no rastreio” www.fitscreening.eu/patients

OSNA – Molecular Detection of Metastases in Lymph Nodes

Lymph node status is one of the most important prognostic factors in many cancers and a key criterion for surgical and therapeutic decisions. Great importance is therefore attached to the reliable and accurate analysis of the lymph node tissue for detection of metastases.
OSNA® – One Step Nucleic Acid Amplification – is a highly automated molecular assay. The reaction procedure is based on specific isothermal technology to amplify nucleic acid (RT-LAMP) and allows the detection of Cytokeratin 19 (CK19) mRNA expression. CK19 is an epithelial cell marker and is not normally present in lymph node tissue. The expression rate of CK19 mRNA correlates with the size of the metastatic foci. The benefits of using OSNA® include:

  • Prompt availability of results
  • Automated and standardised test procedure
  • High levels of sensitivity and specificity
  • The entire lymph node can be analysed
  • Simple test performance even without molecular biological expertise

 

OSNA® is CE-certified and complies with the requirements of Directive 98/79/EC for in-vitro diagnostic medical devices and is thus approved for use in diagnostics.
