HPV DNA Testing Leads to Early Detection of Cervical Cancer

Human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA testing at a first screening results in detection of fewer cases of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) grade 2 or worse, CIN grade 3 or worse, and cervical cancer at a second screening five years later, according to a study published online Dec. 15 in The Lancet Oncology. Dorien C. Rijkaart, M.D., from the VU University Medical Center in Amsterdam, Netherlands, and colleagues investigated whether HPV DNA testing in a first screen impacted the detection of CIN grade 2 or worse, CIN grade 3 or worse, and cervical cancer in a second screening five years later.
