NPC can strike anyone at any age! 
Recent Hong Kong Cancer Registry figures show that NPC:

the="" no.1="" cancer="" amongst="" men="" aged="" 20="" to="" 44<="" span="" ><="" ><="">

Over 80% NPC patients are below the age of 65²

Are the signs of NPC are easily identified?
 <="" br="" ><="" span="" ><="" ><="">

As the symptoms of early NPC resemble flu or inflammatory illnesses, it it usually hard for patients to relate the symptoms to NPC at the early stage, causing a delay in seeking medical intervention. Research shows that 80% of unscreened patients were diagnosed with NPC at a late stage.3

How does Take2 Prophecy™ Test compare with Traditional EBV tests?
 <="" br="" ><="" ><="">

Infection with EB virus is the main course of NPC. EB virus serological detection and quantitative EB virus DNA detection have been consistent tools at the past. However EB virus infection is very common, even if the presence of DB virus or any antibodies is detected, it may only represent a transient infection and is not a reliable indicator of NPC. The test may also show false-positive results. Our early nasopharyngeal cancer screening combines PCR technology and next generation DNA sequencing to analyze DNA in plasma with an accuracy of 97%. It can help identify NPC at early stage and hence allowing for early treatment, which greatly increases the likelihood of successful treatment.
