  • NOTE: PreTect HPV-Proofer and type-specific PCR detects HPV types 16, 18, 31, 33, and 45. Type specific PCR was done on Gp5+/6+ consensus PCR–positive samples. The probability calculus was done using McNemar's test.

    PCR and PreTect HPV-Proofer results are from the index cytology test. The differences are not significant different with McNemar's test. Two cases excluded, due to lack of follow-up, were negative for HPV DNA and mRNA.

  • ↵* Normal histology is defined as less than CIN2 or normal by cytology or histology.
