October 2011 Update

The literature search conducted for this systematic review was completed in September 2010. A manuscript that was derived from this systematic review was published in Annals of Internal Medicine on October 18, 2011. In preparing this manuscript, the review team conducted an ancillary search in PubMed (September 1, 2010 to August 3, 2011) to identify any updated information from trials included (or identified as pending) in this review We also queried three selected experts to determine their knowledge about recent relevant publications on August 8, 2011.

Our search identified nine additional studies, none of which provided additional data on trials included in this review. Instead, the studies represented four reports from previously identified cohorts that were contextually relevant1,2 or unrelated3,4 to the focus of this review, one performance study for a new human papillomavirus test,5 two unrelated reports from trial authors,6,7 and two public health reports.8,9

None of these reports added any new data to our review. Several were added to the discussion section in the Annals manuscript, which is available at
