Recommendation ID

The committee recommended that further studies should be done in a HPV primary screening setting. These studies should incorporate clinical outcome data and be designed to minimise verification bias. Future studies should consider measuring variability and should also take into account HPV genotyping status when possible, so that the difference in accuracy in a population vaccinated against HPV types 16 and 18 can be better understood.

Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)

The committee noted that human papilloma virus (HPV) primary screening is being implemented across England (see section 5.2) and that the base-case economic modelling for HPV primary screening in this assessment was based on preliminary data only (see section 5.13).
