Pathnostics Announces the Launch of GUIDANCE Hematuria to Investigate Possible Infectious Causes for Asymptomatic Hematuria

 

What You Need to Know:

 

American Urological Association (AUA) guidelines suggest an assessment of the asymptomatic microhematuria (AMH) patient should begin with a careful history, physical examination, and laboratory examination to rule out causes of AMH such as an infection.

 

• GUIDANCE Hematuria is designed to assist with determining whether there is an infectious cause for hematuria.

 

– Malignancies are diagnosed in fewer than 10% of AMH cases.

– Infectious causes are identified in up to 22% of cases of AMH.1

 

• Once the benign causes have been ruled out, the presence of asymptomatic microhematuria should prompt a urologic evaluation.2

 

GUIDANCE Hematuria is designed to assist in ruling out or ruling in an infectious cause for hematuria.

Adenovirus
BK Virus
JC Virus
HHV-1,-2 (HSV 1&2)
