New cervical screening test could predict cell changes years before they happen

A new publication from the Professor Martin Widschwendter and the EUTOPS team in Genome Medicine describes a new molecular "WID®-CIN test" that can identify 55% of those with a normal cervical smear result who will go on to develop advanced cell changes or cancer within 4 years. The new test is part of a research program that aims to predict the risk of four cancers (breast, ovarian, womb and cervical) from a single cervical smear.
