Table 3 Odd ratios (ORs) for abnormal cytology and their corresponding 95% confidence intervals (CIs) in HPV positive women according to genotype classification

From: Molecular epidemiology and genotype distribution of Human Papillomavirus (HPV) among Arab women in the state of Qatar

  Total HPV positive women n (%) Abnormal cytology n (%) OR (95% CI)
Genotype classification £    
High risk 37 (20.3) 6 (16.2) 1
Intermediate risk 5 (2.8) 0 --
Low risk 13 (7.1) 0 --
Type 81 122 (67.0) 3 (2.5) 0.13 (0.03-0.55)*
Unknown 5 (2.8) 0 --
  1. *p-value < 0.05.
  2. £In case of mixed HPV infection where the infecting genotypes belong to different groups based on the above listed genotype classification categories, infected women were placed in the category corresponding to the infecting HPV genotype with the highest risk potential.
