When to brush?

NP Screen™ has been shown to be highly sensitive and specific in detecting Nasopharyngeal Cancer (NPC). The following scenarios would benefit from the use of NP Screen™ as a routine adjunctive screening and detection protocol:

• General screening for individuals from high risk endemic areas
• Individuals with an ethnic background that are considered at risk and screening is desired
• Individuals who have strong family history of NPC
• Individuals who are at risk and present with clinical symptoms suspicious of NPC (with or without endoscopic findings)
• Individuals who have rising EBV serology and a family history of NPC
• Individuals who are at risk and present with rising EBV serology of unknown etiology
• Individuals who present with asymmetry in the nasopharynx on endoscopy need further screening to rule out the possibility of sub-mucosal NPC prior to further invasive biopsy
• Individuals that present suspicious lesions in the nasopharynx on endoscopy need further screening to support the clinical diagnosis prior to a definitive biopsy
• Monitoring of post-radiated NPC patients with or without clinical findings in the nasopharynx
