Screening and treating premalignant cervical lesions (CIN2+) is an effective way to prevent cervical cancer, and recommendations exist for monitoring of treatment success. Yet, there is no specific recommendation for HIV-infected women, who are at known increased risk of cervical cancer.

The histological and immunohistochemical evaluation of tissue samples obtained in the course of the investigation and treatment of precancerous squamous lesions of the cervix uteri is an essential tas...
Ghana does not have a universal population-based cervical cancer screening program and there is very limited information about the distribution of cervical epithelial cell lesions. This study provides...
Cervical cancer is one of the most common malignancies in women. MicroRNAs (miRNAs) are involved in a variety of fundamental cellular processes, including carcinogenesis. The potential utilization of ...
Recurrent cervical intraepithelial lesions (rCIN2/3) after treatment of CIN2/3 occur in 5-15% of cases. rCIN2/3 can result from incomplete resection of CIN2/3, where the same HPV type and variant rema...
Recently identified occupational cholangiocarcinoma among printing workers is characterized by chronic bile duct injuries and precancerous or early cancerous lesions at multiple sites of the bile duct...
The purpose of this study is to investigate if imiquimod can be used as a non-invasive option in the treatment of residual/recurrent CIN lesions.
This study evaluates the use of topical ABI-1968 cream, in the treatment of cervical precancerous lesions in adult women.
Precancerous lesions of the cervix occur frequently and are treatable. This justifies a population-based screening program. Following an abnormal Pap smear, patients are referred for a col...
The study will determine the best drug (MAL or HAL) dosage for photodynamic therapy of cervical precancerous lesions (dysplasia) in women that are referred for conisation (surgery).
This study evaluates the use of ABI-1968, a topical cream, in the treatment of cervical precancerous lesions in females without human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection.
A cytological test finding often from PAP SMEARS that shows abnormal lesions of SQUAMOUS EPITHELIAL CELLS of the CERVIX. It is a diagnostic criterion used in the Bethesda System for UTERINE CERVICAL NEOPLASMS and represents the PAP TEST result that is abnormal. Although squamous intraepithelial lesions test result does not mean UTERINE CERVICAL NEOPLASMS it requires follow-ups (e.g., HPV DNA TESTS; and COLPOSCOPY).
A recurrent disease of the oral mucosa of unknown etiology. It is characterized by small white ulcerative lesions, single or multiple, round or oval. Two to eight crops of lesions occur per year, lasting for 7 to 14 days and then heal without scarring. (From Jablonski's Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p742)
Recurrent cutaneous manifestation of GLUCAGONOMA characterized by necrolytic polycyclic migratory lesions with scaling borders. It is associated with elevated secretion of GLUCAGON by the tumor. Other conditions with elevated serum glucagon levels such as HEPATIC CIRRHOSIS may also result in similar skin lesions, which are referred to as pseudoglucagonoma syndrome.
White or pink lesions on the arms, hands, face, or scalp that arise from sun-induced DNA DAMAGE to KERATINOCYTES in exposed areas. They are considered precursor lesions to superficial SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMA.
Thickening and loss of elasticity of the walls of ARTERIES of all sizes. There are many forms classified by the types of lesions and arteries involved, such as ATHEROSCLEROSIS with fatty lesions in the ARTERIAL INTIMA of medium and large muscular arteries.
