About

This study will compare the test performance characteristics of visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA), Xpert HPV, and OncoE6 in HIV-infected women, to inform the possible inclusion of these molecular tests in future cervical cancer screening

Full description

This is a cross-sectional study taking place at cervical cancer prevention clinics in Lusaka, Zambia to determine the test performance characteristics (sensitivity, specificity, positive predictive value, and negative predictive value) of (1) visual inspection with acetic acid, (2) Xpert HPV, and (3) OncoE6 for the detection of CIN2+ among HIV-infected women. All cervical screening tests will be evaluated against a gold standard of histopathology obtained from cervical biopsies.

Trial design

200 participants in 1 patient group

Women undergoing cervical cancer screening
Description:
HIV-infected women will undergo a cervical cancer screening examination using the VIA method. A digital photograph of the cervix will also be taken to aide visual screening. This is known as digital cervicography, and it is currently standard of care within cervical cancer screening clinics in Zambia. Cervical samples will be collected for molecular testing using Xpert HPV, and OncoE6. Cervical biopsy samples will also be obtained for confirmatory histopathologic diagnosis.
Treatment:
Device: OncoE6
Device: Xpert HPV
