Table 2 Positive detection rate for each of the two tested assays according to cytological results: normal, atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ASCUS), low-grade lesions (LSIL) and high-grade lesions + (HSIL+)

From: Human papillomavirus detection using the Abbott RealTime high-risk HPV tests compared with conventional nested PCR coupled to high-throughput sequencing of amplification products in cervical smear specimens from a Gabonese female population
