What is an HPV Variant Test?

Our reports on the variant version infection are diagnosed with our lab PCR instruments.

HPV causes nearly 100% of cervical cancer cases. And 1 in 2 will contract the virus in their lifetime.

Even though there is no treatment for the virus, there are treatments for its symptoms, including vaccines.

Potential issues caused by this infection?

Genital warts

These can go away with your healthcare provider or prescription medicine treatment. But if left untreated, genital warts may go away, stay the same, or grow in size or number. 

Research suggests that being healthy can usually mean that, for most people, your body successfully fights the virus, and it will go away within 2 years.

Cervical precancer

Treatment is available, and women who get routine Pap smears and follow-ups as needed can find problems before cervical Cancer develops. However, prevention is always better than treatment. For more information, visit Cancer. or an external icon.

Other

Other infection-related cancers are also more treatable when found and treated early. But for more information, visit a Cancer Centre or your GP.

What are the Other Questions and Answers for these Kits?

  • Q: Firstly, how does it spread? 

    • A: The HPV infection is transmitted by skin contact, skin with mucosa, or mucosa with mucosa. And it can also be transmitted through direct contact with the secretions/leaks of an infected person. The most frequent convey it is sexual (oral, anal sex, etc.). So be Careful! Nogte that also with protected contact with condoms, there is a risk of getting the infection.
  • Q: Also, how many types are identified?

    • A: However Over 200 strains have been identified so far. But these fall into two categories: low-risk stresses and high-risk strains. However, using our HPV Variant Test, you can find out which type you have.
  • Q: And why are they called high-risk strains? 

    • A: The reference is for the development of genital cancer. Therefore, some strains are more dangerous.
    • Also, the High-risk strains include types 16, 18, 31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 56, 58, 59 and 68.
  • Q: Also, why are they called low-risk strains? 

    • A: Low-risk strains are associated with the development of warts. For these warts, the recommended treatment is excision or local therapy for their “destruction”. Your health provider determines the indication for treatment and testing.
  • Q: But how can a positive result for males and females be treated?

    • A: There is no treatment for this infection. But there is a vaccine which can help prevent it.
  • Q: However, what if my partner or I have this infection? Will we keep passing it between each other?

    • A: Current evidence suggests that natural immunity is poor, so there is a possibility that reinfection between couples could happen.
  • Q: But if I only had sex with one person, would I still get it?

    • A: Having this infection isn’t a sign that someone has slept with many people or been unfaithful to a partner because you can get it during your first sexual contact – whether that is penetrative sex, oral sex, touching or sharing sex toys.
  • Q: So, do all types cause cervical cancer? 

    • A: No, most types do not cause cancer. About 21 types have been identified as causing cancer. Types 16 and 18 cause 7 in 10 cervical cancer.
  • Q: What are its symptoms?

    • A: In most people, the infection does not cause symptoms. And you won’t know you have it until you get checked..
  • Q: What are genital warts?

    • A: Genital warts are growths or bumps on the skin around the genital area. And if left untreated, genital warts may go away, stay the same, or increase in size or number.
  • Q: And how can I avoid getting the infection or genital warts?

    • A: Preventive vaccination against the infection is available. And the vaccines effectively prevent almost all genital infections, including genital warts, and prevent infection-related cellular changes or cancer development.

    • Event-triggered- QC/Calibration/New materials/Batch

 Accuracy

The accuracy of any of our diagnostic tests is defined as the combination of sensitivity and specificity variables. The sensitivity is the test’s ability to confirm positive results; specificity eliminates negative results. Also, all our results are validated with high accuracy (up to 98.5%).

Variables

Accuracy can be affected by various factors that our lab cannot control. Infection intensity, patient health, and sample quality, dependent on adherence to “home testing” procedures, can all limit the test results. Although our tests are extremely sensitive, a poor-quality swab makes it harder to detect the presence of infection, as fewer viral particles will be present. So, please carefully consider the information sheet accompanying your sample collection kit to ensure a high-quality sample is taken.

 Detection

The standard PCR detection method is designed to accurately detect the presence of Human papillomavirus in the sample. Also, a positive result will distinguish between HPV-16 and HPV-18 and the others as listed above. And the standard process detects the presence of the listed types but is unable to provide specific types. Furthermore, it uses a Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR) amplifying method to detect the presence of the pathogen.

The Premium Option detects and reports on the 21 types as listed above

Any diagnosis should be discussed with your healthcare provider. And any results from our medical diagnostics laboratory are intended to be viewed by healthcare professionals. However, this can be done with a patient’s medical history, lifestyle, and other factors that may influence HPV test results, which should be shared with your GP when discussing these results.

Positive result

A positive result suggests the presence of viral particles in the sample during testing. So, upon receiving positive results, you should contact your healthcare provider for treatment. You can also gain a prescription through our website. Also, it is possible that the virus does not present symptoms of the disease, but you may still be infectious to others. But due to proven links between HPV and cancers, you must discuss the results with your GP.

Negative result

But while this can provide reassurance, it is important to understand its significance. And this means the process did not detect the presence of infection at the time of testing. Results should still be discussed with a healthcare provider while considering lifestyle and sexual history. The HPV test includes 21 variants that are considered “High-risk” types due to their association with Cervical cancer but are unable to detect if you are positive for one of the other 200+ variants.
