The HIPPOPROJECT is a randomized healthcare study nested in the OCCSP in Poland. This project will assess the performance of the new screening test (HR HPV test) before its implementation in Poland.


The study assumes randomized assumption of 33,000 women aged 30-59 to cytology or HR HPV test in a 1:1 ratio with age stratification (three strata: 30-39, 40-49 and 50-59 years).

The study will start on September 2019 at the Department of Cervical Cancer Prevention at the Maria Sklodowska-Curie National Research Institute of Oncology in Warsaw. To obtain results representative for the entire country several sites are planned for inclusion in the study from 2020 in 10 regions of Poland.

Primary end-points include the detection rate of histologically confirmed high grade intraepithelial lesions or worse in each screening arm. Selected secondary endpoints include detection rate ratios, colposcopy referral rates and positive predictive values of referral for colposcopy.

Additionally, biobanking of cytological samples taken from patients participating in the HIPPO Project is planned in Maria Sklodowska-Curie National Research Institute of Oncology for the purpose of potential future restrospective analyses if new cervical cancer screening technologies emerge.

The study has been approved by a local bioethics committee.
