Table 5 Prevalence of hrHPV mRNA between self-and healthcare worker-collected samples

From: High-risk human papillomavirus detection in self-collected vaginal samples compared with healthcare worker collected cervical samples among women attending gynecology clinics at a tertiary hospital in Pretoria, South Africa

   Self-sampling Total (%)
hrHPV mRNA positive (%) hrHPV mRNA negative (%)
Healthcare worker-sampling hrHPV mRNA positive (%) 153 (53.7) 71 (24.9) 224 (78.6)
  hrHPV mRNA negative (%) 14 (4.9) 47 (16.5) 61 (21.4)
  Total (%) 167 (58.6) 118 (41.4) 285 (100.0)
  1. McNemar test for correlated proportions comparing hrHPV positive portion of self-sampling with a positive portion of healthcare worker sampling, p =  < 0.0001
