During the study period, a total of 17 489 cervical TPPT results were interpreted as HSIL, LSIL, ASC-H, and ASC-US or as negative were identified from women 50 years and older who were also tested for hrHPV DNA.
When hrHPV DNA detection rates in women 50 years and older with HSIL, LSIL, ASC-H, ASC-US, and negative TPPT results were compared between women with and without an EC/TZS, no statistically significant difference was found with one exception.
Histopathologic follow-up results were assessed for women with ASC-H TPPT and concurrent hrHPV test results, (27) between July 2005 and June 2007, and for women with ASC-US TPPT and positive hrHPV test results, (28) between July 2005 and March 2007.
However, all CAT revenue in FY 2007 is set aside to reimburse schools and local governments for TPPT
A computer-based search was carried out to retrieve ThinPrep Imaging System (TIS)-imaged TPPT (Cytyc) results over a 21-month span, between July 1, 2005, and March 31, 2007, which were interpreted as ASC-US (age, 10-69 years) and which also had a positive hrHPV DNA test result.
Location-guided computer-assisted screening of TPPT slides was accomplished by using the ThinPrep Imaging System (Cytyc).
The period between the hrHPV DNA-positive ASC-US TPPT result and the initial diagnosis of CIN 2/3 ranged from 0 to 11 months (mean, 4.8 months; median, 2.1 months).
The elimination of the TPPT was part of Society-backed tax reform legislation, which also established the commercial activity tax (CAT).
Schools and local governments previously funded through the TPPT will now receive a portion of CAT receipts through a "hold harmless" provision in the legislation.
After the TPPT is completely phased out, schools and local governments will continue to receive CAT disbursements through 2018.
Elimination of the TPPT in its entirety is a major legislative victory," said Barbara Benton, vice president, governmental affairs for The Ohio Society.
