Pathology

Nucleic acid-based tests have found major applications in pathology, particularly in oncology, and the number of clinically useful molecular assays in the routine clinical pathology laboratory is continuously expanding.[28,29] One example is human papillomavirus (HPV) testing by nucleic acid-based methods, which is becoming an integral part of cervical cancer screening.[30,31] However, several issues still need to be clarified before HPV screening can be recommended unequivocally.[32,33] Another example is evaluation of molecular alterations in fecal DNA, which is a potential, noninvasive, alternative tool for the detection of colorectal cancer and may be suitable for POCT. Stool testing by a multitargeted DNA-based assay has the potential to improve the effectiveness and efficiency for colorectal cancer screening, but the clinical value of this nucleic acid-based test still needs to be assessed by further studies.[34]

Without all of the belts and artificial stabilizers of a machine, you also engage your core muscles, which are your body's natural stabilizers.
