Cancer: the first 100% Moroccan screening test soon to be marketed


The first cancer screening kits, produced locally in Morocco, will soon be on the market. The country is currently carrying out the final tests of this innovation to ensure their effectiveness.

It was in 2010 that the initiative to produce such kits was taken by the Moroccan Foundation for Advanced Sciences, Innovation and Research (MASciR). This project is coming to an end in a few months, reports The Guardian, according to which these 100% Moroccan cancer screening tests will soon be marketed.

The kingdom is currently carrying out the final tests, as required by protocol, to ensure their effectiveness. Before this step, the kits went through several steps, including obtaining national and international validation. The objective is to get Africa out of dependence on imported treatments and vaccines.

According to Hassan Sefrioui, member of the MASciR foundation, this invention will eventually make it possible to no longer resort to Western countries to carry out this type of analysis. To date, most kits are imported from Europe or the United States, he noted. And to specify: “the price of the kit can be double what it would cost to manufacture it locally. It is also a long process. It can take weeks or months for the kits to arrive. »
