In the experimental arm of a randomised trial, women were tested both for liquid-based cytology and human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA and referred for colposcopy if cytology was ASCUS (atypical cells of undetermined significance) or more severe. We considered those with ASCUS (757) or LSIL (low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions) (485) and a valid HPV test(More)
Standardised tables of aggregated data were collected from 15 European national or regional cervical screening programmes and key performance indicators computed as reported in European Union (EU) Guidelines, 2nd edition. Cytological results varied widely between countries both for the total proportion of abnormal tests (from 1.2% in Germany(More)
Since 1996, Italian national guidelines have recommended to regions the implementation of organised screening programmes for cervical cancer. As in the previous years, starting from 1998, we collected aggregated tables of data from Italian organised cervical screening programmes in order to centrally compute process indicators. In 2005, the target(More)
Pilot HPV-based cervical screening programmes have recently started in Italy, partly on the strength of a large randomized trial. The Ministry of Health recommended that regions shift toward HPV-based screening in early 2013 and provided guidelines for its application (stand-alone HPV testing by validated methods, cytological triage of HPV positives,(More)
The target population of Italian organised cervical screening programmes that were active (that invited at least 1000 women) in 2004 was 10,206,741 women, corresponding to 64% of the Italian female population in the 25-64 year age range. This proportion was 66%, 83% and 49% in Northern, Central, and Southern Italy respectively. Some 27% of this target(More)

Data were collected from organised Italian cervical screening programmes on: a) the correlation between colposcopic findings (according to the 1990 international classification) and histology, and (b) the treatment/management of screen-detected histologically-confirmed cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN). Data routinely registered by organised(More)
