Persistent infection with human papillomavirus (HPV) induces cervical cancer. Here, we describe a sensitive, specific, and rapid assay for high-risk HPV16 and 18 detection by isothermal helicase-dependent amplification. This method can be used as cost-effective diagnostic method for low-income countries, where highest incidences worldwide of cervical cancer are registered.

Abstract

Persistent infection with human papillomavirus (HPV) induces cervical cancer. Here, we describe a sensitive, specific, and rapid assay for high-risk HPV16 and 18 detection by isothermal helicase-dependent amplification. This method can be used as cost-effective diagnostic method for low-income countries, where highest incidences worldwide of cervical cancer are registered.
