Home-based Self-collected Vaginal Specimens Detect More Cervical Lesions and Cancers Than Cytology

About cervical cancer and the digene® HPV test

Worldwide, cervical cancer affects approximately 500,000 women annually and, after breast cancer, is the second-most-common malignancy found in women. Since the cause of cervical cancer - HPV - is known and women who have it can be identified, it is a highly preventable and treatable disease if women have access to organized prevention programs. The World Health Organization estimates that only about five percent of women in the developing world have been screened for cervical disease in the previous five years compared to 75 percent in the developed world. In the U.S., the digene HPV Test is approved for use together with a Pap test in women 30 years and older. In Europe, it is approved as an initial general population screening test either alone or together with a Pap test. It is also used as a follow-up to inconclusive Pap test results.

About self-collected samples

HPV testing offers the ability for women to self-collect a specimen that can be sent to a laboratory for testing; this cannot be done with a pap smear. Specimens are self-collected in either a clinical setting or in a home. Several health authorities, e.g. in the Netherlands and Mexico, have already investigated the effectiveness of self-collected specimens to determine if it could increase the coverage and effectiveness of their cervical cancer screening program and reach women who today are unscreened. Trials in both countries have shown very promising results and both have used the digene HPV test as the test for screening. Therefore
