The WID-CIN test identifies women with, and at risk of, cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 3 and invasive cervical cancer
JE Barrett et al, Genome Medicine, October 19, 2022

We developed the WID-CIN (Women’s cancer risk IDentification-Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia) test, a DNA methylation signature consisting of 5000 CpG sites. The receiver operating characteristic area under the curve (AUC) in the independent diagnostic validation set was 0.92 (95% CI 0.88–0.96). At 75% specificity (=CIN1), the overall sensitivity to detect CIN3+ is 89.7% (83.3–96.1) in all and 92.7% (85.9–99.6) and 65.6% (49.2–82.1) in women aged =30 and <30.

Extended human papillomavirus genotyping to predict progression to high-grade cervical precancer: A prospective cohort study in the southeastern United States.
Bukowski Alexandra et al. Cancer epidemiology, biomarkers & prevention : a publication of the American Association for Cancer Research, cosponsored by the American Society of Preventive Oncology 2022 6

We assessed a US-based prospective, multiracial, clinical cohort of 343 colposcopy patients with normal histology (n=226) or CIN1 (n=117). Baseline cervical samples underwent HPV DNA genotyping, and participants were followed up to five years. Non-16/18 hrHPV types are associated with differential CIN2+ progression rates. HPV16, 33, and 58 exhibited the highest rates over five years. HPV risk groups warrant further investigation in diverse US populations
