High-risk HPV infections cause 99.8% of all cervical cancer

Cervical screening, or smear test, now looks for high-risk HPV infections and monitors them to make sure they either go away, or any changes to the cells of the cervix are found and treated before they can lead to cervical cancer. The problem is, 1 in 3 women and people with a cervix do not attend cervical screening when invited, for many reasons. As women, we all know a smear test can be:
  • Inconvenient appointments anywhere are like gold and harder on those with kids and work
  • Uncomfortable-invasive and can hurt
  • Inaccessible-some regions in the world have no services

By giving women and people with a cervix a chance to test themselves at home for high-risk HPV, we will encourage more women to take part in screening.  Allowing more women to know and understand their HPV status.  This is what 10zyme will do!

We're taking action with innovation, not just talking!

We're putting our talent where our mouth is and making scientific advancements in HPV testing to go with the education.

We’re the first to do what we do! We are developing the first high-risk HPV at-home test kit to help eliminate cervical cancer and prevent all HPV related cancers in men and women, globally.
