A national roll-out of screening for routine primary high risk human papillomavirus (hrHPV) is under way in England. To support it, a large pilot study of routine testing for hrHPV examined the prevalence and incidence of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN, the pre-cancerous abnormalities) and cancer, comparing it with liquid-based cytology (LBC).
