        Infectious Disease

        IMPACT OF GLOBAL VIRAL SURVEILLANCE ON DIAGNOSTIC TOOLS

        When disease-causing viruses (e.g. hepatitis B) mutate, there is a risk of being unable to detect them for diagnosis and monitoring, as well as the risk that the treatment response to current medications may be lessened. Therefore, viral genetic diversity has the potential to impact a vast number of healthcare touchpoints.

        Abbott is constantly searching for new ways to improve people's health. A critical success factor involves monitoring retroviruses and hepatitis viruses from around the globe with a surveillance program, to help ensure laboratory tests continue to accurately detect divergent virsuses, regardless of where they are acquired. Since 1994, Abbott's Global Viral Surveillance Program has been at the forefront of viral surveillance continually  evolving to impact the development of next generation solutions.
