BACKGROUND Testing for oncogenic human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA at a 1.0-pg/mL threshold represents a promising approach for colposcopy triage of atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ASCUS), but not for low-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions (LSIL). Considering age or viral load could improve colposcopy triage. METHODS We determined the sensitivity for detecting Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia 3 (CIN3) and cancer and the percentage of referrals for colposcopy using HPV… CONTINUE READING
