Examines whether the detection of either telomerase and its components or high risk human papillomavirus are of value in predicting the presence of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade II/III in women referred because of cervical cytology reports showing at most moderate dyskaryosis. Key issues of interest; Analysis of pertinent topics and relevant issues; Implications on clinical pathology.
