Summary of hTERC amplification according to histology diagnosis
Histology Dx Number of cases No. of cases with hTERC amplification (%)* Mean of cell number with hTERC amplification
NNL 26 0 1.058
CIN1 19 4 (21.1%) 5.132
CIN2 12 6 (50%) 6.083
CIN3 27 22 (81.5%) 11.093
CA 19 19 (100%) 21.105

Dx, diagnosis; NNL, non neoplastic lesion; CIN, cervical intraepithial neoplasia; CA, cervical carcinoma.

*A case of hTERC amplification was defined as more than 5.8% of the cells showed a pattern when number of hTERC signal was more than 2.
