- Laboratory testing company Quest Diagnostics Inc said on Tuesday it
had signed a $520,000 agreement with the Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention to identify trends in screening, diagnosis and treatment of
four strains of viral hepatitis.
Quest will provide the U.S.
public health agency with analytics and access to Quest's national
database of clinical testing hepatitis data, which includes information
from more than 20 billion test results.
agreement expands on Quest's previous efforts with the CDC on hepatitis
C testing data for Baby Boomers, or individuals born between 1945 and
1965, one of the groups most exposed to the virus.
