OVA1™ is a qualitative serum test that combines the
results of five immunoassays into a single numerical score. It is
indicated for women who meet the following criteria: over age 18,
ovarian adnexal mass present for which surgery is planned, and not
yet referred to an oncologist. The test utilizes five
well-established biomarkers - Transthyretin (TT or prealbumin),
Apolipoprotein A-1 (Apo A-1), beta 2-Microglobulin (beta 2M),
Transferrin (Tfr) and Cancer Antigen 125 (CA 125 II) - and a
proprietary FDA-cleared software device to determine the likelihood
of malignancy in women with pelvic mass for whom surgery is
planned. OVA1™ is a trademark of Vermillion, Inc.
