According to Pri-Med conference attendee, Sarah Glantz, “I’m very interested in ForeCYTE as it will be very beneficial and a lot easier than doing a mammogram. Glantz sentiments were expressed by fellow participant and H Lee Moffitt Cancer Center employee, Carla Moodie who expressed, “It is a great product and I think anything that deals with early detection is good. In addition, it will be done in a doctor’s office”.
Using the patented, FDA-cleared Mammary Aspirate Specimen Cytology Test (MASCT) System, a nurse or physician’s assistant, can painlessly collect a sample of Nipple Aspirate Fluid (NAF) in about 15 minutes. The MASCT device is intended for use in the collection of nipple aspirate fluid for cytological testing. The collected fluid can be used in the determination and/or differentiation of normal versus premalignant versus malignant cells.
CEO of Clarity Women’s Health, Rick Simpson explained, “The response from medical practitioners attending the conference has been phenomenal. The Clarity Women’s Health staff has been able to introduce the test to women of all ages and even breast cancer survivors. The value of the test was demonstrated today at the Pri-Med Expo. Based on the response of the medical community, we are excited to save lives with the ForeCYTE breast health test”.
Simpson further stated, “Clarity Women’s Health and Atossa Genetics are proud to be able to present a product that will support physicians in the care of their female patients. This product advancement in breast health will help doctors save women’s lives and help us look forward to a future where we will be fearless about breast cancer”.
ForeCYTE is targeted for over 110 million women between the ages of 18 and 73 in the U.S. who can now obtain a simple test in their physician's office and learn their future risk of breast cancer up to eight years before mammography can pick it up. This kind of advanced information was created for cervical cancer by the Pap smear and was responsible for the 75% reduction in the incidence of cervical cancer. The ForeCYTE Breast Health Test has the potential to do the same for breast cancer.
