"Today, more than 4 million Americans are infected with hepatitis C and the vast majority do not know it," said Dr. Eugene R. Schiff, Director of the Schiff Center for Liver Diseases, University of Miami School of Medicine, and Vice President of the Chronic Liver Disease Foundation. "We enthusiastically support the CDC's recommendations for broader and more accessible testing for HCV and feel that we are rapidly approaching a time when it will be 'test-and-treat.' Point-of-care testing, in particular, can play a critical role in expanding testing opportunities and facilitating immediate care for those diagnosed with HCV."The Company's OraQuick® HCV test is the only FDA-approved rapid, point-of-care test for the detection of antibodies to the hepatitis C virus in persons with signs or symptoms of hepatitis and in persons at risk for hepatitis C infection. The test, which utilizes the OraQuick® technology platform, provides results in 20 minutes.
