Molecular saliva test detects oral cancer, diabetes
A Pennsylvania startup is gearing up to launch a molecular saliva test that analyzes biomarkers to detect oral cancer and diabetes. PeriRx is now conducting clinical trials of its diagnostic test, which has attracted the interest of the U.K.'s National Institute for Health Research. The genesis for the test came from a collaboration between Dr. Neil Gottehrer, a Havertown, Pa., dentist who has been practicing for 38 years, and Dr. David T.W. Wong, a pioneer in salivary diagnostics who is the associate dean of research and a professor of oral biology at the UCLA School of Dentistry.
