HPV testing: IQWiG still sees indications of a benefit in primary screening
Date:6/11/2014

screening round was lower in the HPV group than in the group of women who had only been examined with a cytology-based screening strategy (e.g. Pap smear) in the first screening round. This also applies to the so-called "composite outcome", which not only comprised tumours, but also advanced precursors of cancer. IQWiG therefore determined an indication of a benefit in each case.

There are still no data or no evaluable data available on mortality, quality of life and potential harm.

As the screening strategies applied in the studies varied greatly and could therefore not be compared with each other, the results still do not allow a recommendation for a specific screening strategy in the German health care system.

Process of report production

The Federal Joint Committee (G-BA) commissioned IQWiG to prepare the report in an accelerated process, known as a "rapid report". Unlike the normal procedure, no preliminary reports are published in this case. Although a draft version of the report is reviewed by external experts, no hearing at which all interested parties can comment takes place.

IQWiG sent the first benefit assessment to the commissioning agency in November 2011 and published it in January 2012. In October, the G-BA commissioned IQWiG to update its report using the same methodological approach. The present report was sent to the G-BA in mid-May 2014.
