HPV Focal Study Closed

Dear Patients,

Great news! The HPV Focal Study has been a great success so far, and we have been informed by BCCA that they have reached their recruitment goal of 25,000 women!

What does that mean? Patients who have consented to doing the HPV study before March 30, 2012 and have completed the initial study visit with our doctors will continue, as planned, to follow-up in 2 or 4 years. Their samples will also continue to be processed after March 30.

Unfortunately though, this means that if you have not yet contacted the HPV study centre or our office to book an HPV study session, we will not be able to initiate the study with you at this time.

If you have any questions about the study, or need more information, please contact us or the HPV study centre at 604-707-5955
