every 60 minutes a person dies from oral cancer

30 seconds is all it takes to get screened MOP

™

genetic oral screening Exposure to the HPV-16 virus (Human Papilloma Virus), a common sexually transmitted disease, is changing the demographic of oral cancer. Early detection is key to survival. Get the MOP, a simple, minty mouthwash you gargle for 30 seconds. MOP tests for early signs or triggers of oral cancer in three ways: 1. Cell abnormalities: Changes to your cells could mean a precancerous condition or infection exists. 2. HPV: HPV can lead to oral cancer. 3. DNA damage: People with certain DNA damage are at a higher risk for oral cancer.

Contact us at 678.601.6030 or pcgmolecular.com to find doctors and dentists in your area that are administering the MOP.

PCG Molecular is a preventive care diagnostic company re-engineering the way we approach health care. The pioneering company is dedicated to the development of molecular genetic screens that detect early signs of DNA and cellular damage.
