Academic Journal
The article focuses on a study, which aims to assess the prevalence of human papillomavirus (HPV) infection in women between 15 and 54 years of age in North Sardinia, Italy. It identifies the prevalence of high risk-HPV (HR-HPV) genotypes and establishes a correlation between molecular and cytological results. The background, methods, results, and conclusions of the study, are discussed.

    Background Papanicolaou (Pap) triage, with high specificity, has been recommended for primary Human papillomavirus (HPV) testing but is flawed by poor sensitivity and cytologist dependence.
