high-risk human papillomavirus messenger rna testing in physician- and self-collected specimens for cervical lesion detection in high-risk women, kenya.little is known about the performance of physician-versus self-collected specimens for high-risk human papillomavirus (hrhpv) messenger rna (mrna) testing or risk factors for hrhpv mrna positivity in physician- versus self-collected specimens. we compared the performance of hrhpv mrna testing of physician- and self-collected specimens for detecting cytological high-grade squamous intraepithelial lesions or more severe (≥hsil) and examined risk factors for hrhpv mrna positivity in female sex work ...201323965776
the role of chlamydia trachomatis in high-risk human papillomavirus persistence among female sex workers in nairobi, kenya.little is known about risk factors for persistent high-risk human papillomavirus (hrhpv) infection in low-income settings, and prior research has not quantified the relative duration of hrhpv infections stratified by risk factors. we compared the duration of hrhpv infection among female sex workers (fsws) by exposure to sexually transmitted infections (stis), using a highly sensitive biomarker assay.201525970306
