Biomedical researchers from Queensland University of Technology developed a modest saliva test to detect early throat cancer in an individual with no symptoms or clinical signs of cancer. This will be the first-ever non-invasive test that will be identifying the HPV-DNA present in the saliva to detect the cancer in a person. Earlier studies have already shown persistent human papillomavirus (HPV) infection to be the major cause for cancerous growth in the oropharynx. Thus, the development of this new test is likely to raise an alarm for creating more awareness regarding early cancer detection techniques. According to Associate Professor Chamindie Punyadeera and Dr. Kai Tang, the saliva test can help save more lives.
To top it all, the increasing number of high-risk human papillomavirus (HPV)-driven throat cancers in the emerging and urbanized countries and its detection in the advanced stage makes it difficult for the patients to deal with the highly complicated and impactful treatments. Until now HPV-driven throat cancers have no screening test even though it has crossed the number of cervical cancers. The persistent detection of HPV-16 DNA over a period of time could help confirm the presence of underlying cancer. The new saliva test is probably a boon for the populace as the diagnosis and tests for this sort of cancer in this hectic lifestyle still does not exist.
The oropharynx cancer has been nicknamed as hidden throat cancer that can be screened through the saliva test which can be further validated through more of studies and findings. The saliva screening test for oropharynx cancer is a promising test that researchers have long been waiting for in order to validate the assessment pathway for people with persisting salivary HPV-DNA.
