Taiwan starts oral cancer screening programme:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The Taiwanese Department of Health has started a national oral cancer screening programme. It will use OraTest, a five-minute mouthwash product that shows up pre-symptomatic cancerous lesions. Zila, which manufactures the product, says it is also hoping to introduce it in Singapore, Hong Kong, China and Japan. Oral cancer is one of the most common forms of cancer in Asia due to high smoking rates and the habit of chewing a carcinogenic mixture of betel nut, lime leaf and frequently, tobacco. Phoenix, Arizona based Zila has applied to have the product approved in the US.
