“PMI Labs are very proud to provide OralAdvance(TM) tests for these local, community-based programs that will help people in Canadian communities and raise awareness of oral cancer in support of April as National Oral Health Month (http://www.cda-adc.ca/en/cda/news_events/health_month/index.asp). We hope that these initiatives will grow to become standard practice nation-wide as part of a systematic oral cancer screening program that can save lives through earlier detection,” comments Dr. Bojana Turic, Perceptronix President and CEO.
The community-based programs will be providing interested residents in Richmond (BC), Victoria (BC), and Red Deer (AB) with complimentary oral cancer screenings using VELscope(TM) (http://www.velscope.com/), an oral tissue visualization device. Any areas that look like they may be pre-cancer will be sampled and assessed using OralAdvance(TM), an easy to use, highly informative test that will determine whether cells from the suspicious area have abnormal DNA content as a result of large-scale changes indicative of cancer or pre-cancer. If early cancer is indicated, treatment is straight-forward and patient outcomes are favourable with 5 year survival rates reaching 80-90%.
