Table 4 Optimal sensitivity and specificity for the detection of CIN3 for hrHPV type (HPV16/18, others) and the miRNA classifier in conjunction with hrHPV type based on a smaller sample set with known hrHPV type infection and leave-one-out cross-validation

From: Triage of high-risk HPV-positive women in population-based screening by miRNA expression analysis in cervical scrapes; a feasibility study
