Johns Hopkins Researchers Present At USCAP


Researchers from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine recently presented a poster outlining the results from a study demonstrating the utility of Sienna’s telomerase assay as an adjunct to urine cytology for detection of urothelial neoplasms. The poster was presented at the United States and Canadian Academy of Pathology (USCAP) annual meeting held in Seattle in March. The poster attracted a lot of attention from attending pathologists and researchers, with many stopping by to discuss it with two of the study authors, Dr Derek Allison and Prof Christopher VandenBussche. 

The poster represents the first public presentation of academic research on the use of telomerase detection using Sienna’s antibody reagent. Following the successful completion of the initial study, the researchers at Johns Hopkins are designing a longer, more in-depth study with the aim of demonstrating the full clinical potential of telomerase detection. Additional studies are also underway at other leading institutions in the USA and Australia.
