Urine test for HPV genotypes as a predictor of precancerous cervical lesions and for cervical cancer screening

"This paper from Egypt explores the use of a urine test for the diagnosis of Human Papilloma Virus (HPV) infection. Maged and colleagues demonstrate a relationship between the presence of high-risk HPV types on a urine test with the existence of premalignant cervical lesions.

The presence of affordable, non-invasive testing for important conditions can increase the number of women who are willing to be tested."
