In the UK, 57% of adults’ daily intake is derived from ultra-processed foods (UPFs), and the figure is even higher in adolescents (66%).[i] Researchers at the University of Bristol showed that eating 10% more UPFs is associated with a 23% higher risk of head and neck cancer, and a 24% higher risk of oesophageal cancer.

Many patients may not realise that they’re at a heightened risk of oral cancer. As such it’s important to carefully monitor for the early signs in every patient. The BeVigilant™ OraFusion™ System from Vigilant Biosciences® is a quick and easy pre-diagnostic test which is designed to be used at point of care, using saliva.

The BeVigilant™ Orafusion™ System can be used to identify the presence of biomarkers associated with oral cancer, producing a result in 15 minutes or less.
