Alone, smoking increases oral cancer risk by 10,[i] and heavy alcohol consumption increases risk by a factor of five.[ii] Moreover, patients with alcohol dependency are three times more likely to smoke, and patients who are dependent on tobacco are four times more likely to be addicted to alcohol.[iii]

As such, understanding a patient’s risk factors is essential in achieving better oral cancer outcomes. The next step is accurate pre-diagnostic assessments once lesions are identified. The BeVigilant™ OraFusion™ System from Vigilant Biosciences® helps providers speed up the detection of oral cancer by analysing clinical risk factors and identifying early-stage biomarkers found in saliva.

The non-invasive test is performed at the point of care and provides a result in 15 minutes or less.
