NOTE: The estimated CIN3+ risk among all women ages 30 years and older testing HC2+ with negative cytology, prior to typing, was 3.5%; by current U.S. guidelines all would be recommended to return for retesting in 1 year. Three-year cumulative risk of CIN3 or worse (CIN3+) among women with Hybrid Capture 2–positive (HC2+) negative cytology, ages 30 years and older, stratified by HPV type status [HPV16, else HPV18, else other 12 high-risk (HR) types targeted by cobas].
