Abstract

BACKGROUND: Self-collection for high-risk HPV (hr-HPV) mRNA testing may improve cervical cancer screening. Hr-HPV mRNA with self-collected specimens stored dry could enhance feasibility and acceptance of specimen collection and storage; however, its performance is unknown. We compared the performance of hr-HPV mRNA testing with dry- as compared to wet-stored self-collected specimens for detecting ≥HSIL.
