- COBAS® AmpliPrep/COBAS® TaqMan® HLA-B*5701 Screening Test
COBAS® AmpliPrep/COBAS® TaqMan® HLA-B*5701 Screening Test
Confidently identify patients who have a hypersensitivity to abacavir
Use PCR technology to facilitate HLA-B*5701 screening and better manage HIV patients who could potentially have hypersensitivity reactions to abacavir.
Allergic hypersensitivity to the HIV reverse nucleoside transcriptase inhibitor, abacavir, is highly associated with a specific allele at the HLA-B locus, HLA-B*5701.*† The COBAS® AmpliPrep / COBAS® TaqMan® HLA-B*5701 Screening Test‡ uses PCR technology to facilitate HLA-B*5701 screening in the routine clinical setting for managing HIV patients.
HLA-B*5701 screening promotes more informed patient treatment and facilitates safer disease management as recommended by the US Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), European AIDS Clinical Society (EACS) and the International AIDS Society-USA Panel (IAS).
