Summary of "Use of Multiplex Polymerase Chain Reaction for Detection of High-Risk Human Papillomavirus Genotypes in Women Attending Routine Cervical Cancer Screening in Harare."

In Zimbabwe, cervical cancer is screened through cytology and visual inspection with acetic acid and cervicography (VIAC). The effectiveness of these methods can be increased if complemented by a human papillomavirus DNA detection tool since most cervical cancer cases are caused by persistent infection with high-risk human papillomavirus (HR-HPV) genotypes. Moreover, the possibility of multiple-genotype HR-HPV infections warrants the need for HPV detection tools with the capacity to detect both single and multiple infections. The aim of this study was to detect HR-HPV genotypes (HPV 16, 18, 31, 33, 35, 45, 51, 52, 56, and 58), using multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR), in stored cervicovaginal swabs from both HIV-positive and HIV-negative women reporting for routine cervical cancer screening.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Methods for using more than one primer set in a polymerase chain reaction to amplify more than one segment of the target DNA sequence in a single reaction.

Methods used for detecting the amplified DNA products from the polymerase chain reaction as they accumulate instead of at the end of the reaction.

A heat stable DNA-DIRECTED DNA POLYMERASE from the bacteria Thermus aquaticus. It is widely used for the amplification of genes through the process of POLYMERASE CHAIN REACTION. EC 2.7.7.-.

In vitro method for producing large amounts of specific DNA or RNA fragments of defined length and sequence from small amounts of short oligonucleotide flanking sequences (primers). The essential steps include thermal denaturation of the double-stranded target molecules, annealing of the primers to their complementary sequences, and extension of the annealed primers by enzymatic synthesis with DNA polymerase. The reaction is efficient, specific, and extremely sensitive. Uses for the reaction include disease diagnosis, detection of difficult-to-isolate pathogens, mutation analysis, genetic testing, DNA sequencing, and analyzing evolutionary relationships.

A technique that labels specific sequences in whole chromosomes by in situ DNA chain elongation or PCR (polymerase chain reaction).
