To the Editor: Drs Schiffman and Solomon1 wrote an Editorial to accompany the randomized controlled trial by Siebers and colleagues,2 which found that liquid-based cytology did not perform better than conventional cytology. The Editorial stated that these findings are “unlikely to have a major effect on cytology screening methods in the United States.” The implication that current practices will not change (ie, that liquid-based cytology will generally be the exclusive method used) is important for resource-limited programs such as the National Breast and Cervical Cancer Early Detection Program (NBCCEDP) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
