LAST Project’s Consensus Recommendations Released by CAP and ASCCP
The CAP and ASCCP just released the LAST Project’s consensus recommendations online, published in the Archives of Pathology & Laboratory Medicine and in the Journal of Lower Genital Tract Disease (JLGTD). I previously blogged about this here, so you may be interested in reviewing that prior post.
According to a news release by the CAP, “…The new consensus recommendations provide a standardized diagnostic histopathologic terminology for squamous lesions associated with the human pappillomavirus (HPV) across lower anogenital tract body sites, including recommendations for the appropriate use of biomarkers to identify and distinguish these lesions.”
Both organizations encourage implementation of these consensus recommendations, which are intended to “…enhance communication between pathologists and clinicians, leading to more effective patient management.”
The hard copy version will publish in the July issue of JLGTD and the October issue of the Archives.
