Subject: [Histonet] P16 and HPV
I've been told that the HPV testing will be discontinued as of end of year. HPV expresses the P16 gene but so does other type of cancers associated with HPV.
It is possible to have a P16 pos and HPV negative test.
But is it not possible to have HPV pos and P16 neg. if HPV is positive then the P16 is also positive.
So the P16 cannot be used to replace the HPV testing can it?
