Aim: Review on urinary biomarkers for cervical cancer and triage of high-risk human papillomavirus infections.

Partners: University of Antwerp, VAXINFECTO (Belgium), MIPRO, PPES, LMM, University Hospital Antwerp (Belgium)

Results: When appropriately sampled, stored, and processed, first-void urine is a particularly valuable liquid biopsy source for primary HPV testing and for analysis of molecular biomarkers via a triage algorithm to distinguish clinically relevant, transforming infections from transient infections.
