*HPV-DNA positive result: positivity for one or more HPV genotypes [high risk (16, 18, 31, 33, 35, 39, 45, 51, 52, 56, 58, and 59), uncertain-risk (26, 53, 66, 68, 70, 73, and 82), and low-risk (6, 11, 40, 42, 43, 44, 54, 61, 72, and 81)] detected by GP5+/6+ PCR
§The final histological diagnosis was based on the highest CIN grade present in the tissue For the purpose of the study, histological results were grouped into: CIN2- or-greater (CIN2+, including CIN2, CIN3 and squamous cell carcinoma), CIN2- (including CIN1), and negative for dysplasia (including inflammatory and reactive findings)
