The U. Today's clearances provide a mechanism for more easily diagnosing these infections. Nucleic acid amplification tests NAATs are an industry standard for diagnostics but had not received FDA approval for these two specific sample sites until now. In the study of clinical data used by FDA to evaluate safety and efficacy, multiple commercially available NAATs were evaluated for detection accuracy of Neisseria gonorrhoeae and Chlamydia trachomatis from throat and rectal sites.

Almost all cervical cancer is caused by HPV. Some cancers of the vulva, vagina, penis, anus, and oropharynx back of the throat, including the base of the tongue and tonsils are also caused by HPV.
