The FDA has the authority to require sponsors to perform a post-approval study (or studies) at the time of approval of a premarket approval (PMA), humanitarian device exemption (HDE), or product development protocol (PDP) application. Post-approval studies can provide patients, health care professionals, the device industry, the FDA and other stakeholders information on the continued safety and effectiveness (or continued probable benefit, in the case of an HDE) of approved medical devices. This database allows you to search Post-Approval Study information by applicant or device information.

Detailed Study Protocol Parameters
Study Design Description The study consists of consecutive patients for whom a MonoGen Pap Test is performed at the participating laboratories constitute the MonoGen Pap Test arm of this study. These patiens will be compared to historical Pap smear slides from the same laboratories.
Study Population Description Study Population: Patients 18 years or older, with a Pap test and a minimum of 400 HSIL. There were also 360 patients who have an accompanying colposcopy/biopsy results. Indication: The MPPT is intended for use in collecting and preparing cervical-vaginal cytology specimens for Pap stain-based screening for cervical cancer, its precursor lesions, and other cytologic categories and conditions defined by the 2001 Bethesda System for Reporting Results of Cervical Cytology.
Sample Size 400 HSIL patients and 360 patients with an accompanying colposcopy/biopsy, 3 sites
Data Collection Data will be collected on the MonoGen Pap test results for MPPT patients and Pap smear results will be obtained from the control patients. The endpoint includes cervical cytology results from cervical-vaginal cytology specimens using both MPPT method for the prospective arm and PS method for the historical arm. For cases with cytologic diagnosis of HSIL+ from both MPPT and PS arms, comparative data from histological examination (colposcopy and, if appropriate, biopsy) will be collected.
Follow-up Visits and Length of Follow-up Follow-up was not required for this study.
