What cervical screening is appropriate for women who have been vaccinated against high risk HPV? a simulation studySubmitted by amccune on Fri, 2017-11-10 10:51
Women vaccinated against HPV16/18 are approaching the age for cervical screening; however, an updated screening algorithm has not been agreed. We use a microsimulation model calibrated to real published data to determine the appropriate screening intensity for vaccinated women. Natural histories in the absence of vaccination were simulated for 300,000 women using 10,000 sets of transition probabilities.
