Clinical Significance

HPV Genotypes 16 and 18, Cervical – Persistent infection with high-risk HPV types increases a woman’s risk for progression to dysplasia or cervical cancer. The rate of progression or degree of risk depends on the HPV type. Of all various high-risk types, HPV Types 16 and 18 cause more than 60-65% of cervical cancers. This test will identify the presence or absence of HPV Type 16 DNA and/or Type 18 DNA. Knowledge of the HPV genotype will help physicians diagnose the type of HPV infection and its risk of developing into dysplasia or cervical cancer
