FISH · Women's Health
The cervical TERC FISH Test can see inside the cervical cells to identify chromosomal abnormalities within the cervical cell's DNA that has been linked to cervical cancer. HPV infection alone is not sufficient for oncogenic transformation. The TERC FISH test can identify an increase in chromosome copy number and TERC gene amplification which have been linked to the cellular transformation towards cervical cancer. Studies have shown that at lease 90% of invasive cervical cancer cases have increased copy numbers of the telomerase gene (TERC), located at 3q26.2.
