Most guidelines currently recommend the testing of human papillomavirus (HPV) in ASCUS cases. The most used method for this purpose is Hybrid Capture II (HCII), but PCR techniques with GP5+/6+ primers can be also applied. Furthermore, the HCII high-risk probe test for detection of HPV shows cross-reactivity with low-risk HPV. Although this cross-reactivity… CONTINUE READING
