DORAL, Florida, Oct. 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Earth Science Tech, Inc. (OTCQB: ETST) (“ETST" or the “Company"), an innovative biotech company focused on the cannabidiol (CBD), nutraceutical and pharmaceutical fields, medical devices, and research and development, today announces its agreement with Groupe Opmedic Inc. and its Procrea Fertility Laboratories to provide the laboratory services for the detection of sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in women using Hygee™.

ETST’s Hygee™ self-sampling kit mimics a standard feminine hygiene panty liner. When worn for four hours, the subtle device collects and stores a cervical cell sample, which the woman can mail to the Procrea Fertility lab for anonymous and discreet testing for STIs.

“We are extremely happy to be working with Earth Science Tech on its Hygee™ project,” said Dr Pierre St-Michel, president of Groupe Opmedic. “This new sample collection technology will allow women who lack access to health care to take their testing into their own hands.”

ETST has already proven the Hygee™ device’s ability to collect cell samples to detect chlamydia, and is working to validate similar results for gonorrhea. Untreated chlamydia infections may have serious effects on the female reproductive system, and on the fetus a pregnant woman is carrying. For this reason, women who are pregnant should be tested for chlamydia infection. Hygee™ will make this process easier, more accessible, and more cost-efficient while protecting the privacy of the woman.

In the near future, ETST will add testing for other STIs and non-STI infections that will make the device ever more useful.

Procrea Fertility offers an advanced range of laboratory testing of cervical cells, including tests for human papillomavirus (HPV), chlamydia trachomatis (CT) and Neisseria gonorrhoeae (NG). As stated above, the cervical cell samples collected using Hygee™ are only certified for CT testing, with NG certification to follow shortly.

“We are excited to be working with partner that has the same vision as we do,” said Dr. Michel Aubé, CEO and CSO of ETST. “We are concerned for the health of all women and the babies they carry when pregnant. The CT test is so essential for infant’s health that the World Health Organization (WHO) encourages all sexually active women between the ages of 15 and 25 to be tested once a year.”

As they become available, ETST plans to share further updates on the Hygee medical device.
