OSNA label extension for cervical, endometrial and prostate cancer

OSNA (One Step Nucleic Acid Amplification), a molecular diagnostic assay for accurate detection and quantification of lymph node metastases, is now available also for cervical, endometrial and prostate cancer. 

Thanks to the broad adoption of screening programmes, these cancers are increasingly detected at early stages. Hence, disease progress is mostly confined and metastatic spread to lymph nodes only observed in a few patients. However, since nodal involvement is a pivotal parameter to guide surgical and therapy decisions, accurate and reliable analysis of the lymph nodes is crucial to assure the best possible treatment of patients.

Nowadays, for nodal staging in early-stage patients, approaches such as sentinel lymph node biopsy are on the rise to be established as valid alternative to more extensive lymph node dissection. Reducing invasiveness of surgical interventions leads to lower risk for patients to suffer from post-surgical morbidities, improving their quality of life and outcome. Moreover, dissecting a smaller number of lymph nodes allows assessment even during the operation, directly supporting surgical decisions and enabling further treatment steps without any delay.

By offering fast and accurate whole node analysis within 30 minutes, OSNA is a perfect solution to cover clinicians’ needs for definitive and accurate nodal staging in this intraoperative setting.

OSNA is already widely used in breast and colorectal cancer as well as in gastric and lung cancer.
