Cervical cancer is a common tumor in gynecological malignancies. Recent studies showed that long non-coding RNAs (lncRNAs) play a key role in tumorigenesis and development. LncRNA nuclear-rich transcripts 1 (NEAT1) has been found to play a role in gynecological tumors, such as endometrial cancer. However, expression of lncRNA NEAT1 and mechanism in cervical cancer has not been elucidated.
In Gulf Cooperation Council States, there is limited information on national levels of mammography and Pap smear screening uptake. The aim of this study is to provide a baseline for national estimates for mammography and Pap smear screening and to explore associations between screening uptake and socioeconomic factors. The nationally representative World Health Survey Plus, implemented in 2008/2009 in Kuwait, Oman, Saudi Arabia and United Arab Emirates (UAE), was used. Uptake of mammography and Pap smear wa...
Cervical cancer is one of the main causes of cancer death worldwide. Fluorine-18-fluorodeoxyglucose (F-FDG) PET/computed tomography (PET/CT) has been playing an increasingly important role in staging and monitoring treatment response in the disease. In the current study, we investigated metabolic F-FDG PET/CT parameters among patients with locally advanced squamous cell cervical cancer treated with concurrent chemoradiotherapy for predicting disease-free survival (DFS).
Zambia has made substantial investments in health systems capacity, yet it remains unclear whether improved service quality improves outcomes. We investigated the association between health system capacity and use of prevention of mother-to-child HIV transmission (PMTCT) services in Zambia.
Cervical cancer is the leading and most common female cancer among women in Ghana. Although there are screening methods to detect premalignant lesions for treatment, screening coverage in Ghana is 2.8% and late presentation of cases complicates treatment efforts. This study examined the sociodemographic, clinical and histological characteristics associated with late presentation of cervical cancer cases attending Gynecological Oncology care at Catholic Hospital, Battor.
Human leukocyte antigen (HLA) class II alleles have been previously associated with cervical cancer. However, these associations vary widely across racial and ethnic groups. Therefore, we evaluated the effect of HLA class II alleles on cervical cancer in a Korean population. HLA-DRB1, HLA-DQB1, and HLA-DQA1 alleles were analyzed in 457 cervical cancer patients and compared to those of 926 control subjects. The odds ratio (OR) of each allele between the patients and controls was calculated using the logistic...
During pregnancy, the only diagnosis that may alter management is invasive cancer. Thus, the primary aim of the cytological screening and subsequent colposcopy performed during pregnancy should be the exclusion of invasive cancer, "Practice Bulletin No. 140: management of abnormal cervical cancer screening test results and cervical cancer precursors," (American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, 2013) . However, the impact of the delivery on the regression of the cervical lesions is still debate...
Cervical cancer is the third most common cause of cancer in women. The 5-year survival rate in oropharyngeal squamous cell carcinomas is about 50%, and this rate has not improved in the last several decades. These cancers are accessible to direct intervention. We examined the ability of a highly efficient non-viral vector, TransfeX, to deliver the suicide gene HSV-tk to cervical and oral cancer cells and induce cytotoxicity following the administration of the prodrug, ganciclovir.
The vaginal microbiota proposedly influence the association between human papillomavirus and cervical cancer. Our aim was to assess if vaginal dysbiosis affects human papilloma virus acquistion, persistence, and progression to related cervical pre-malignancy.
High risk human papillomavirus (HPV) infections are the causative agent in virtually every cervical cancer as well as a host of other anogenital and oropharyngeal malignancies. These viruses must activate DNA repair pathways to facilitate their replication, while avoiding the cell cycle arrest and apoptosis that can accompany DNA damage. HPV oncoproteins facilitate each of these goals, but also reduce genome stability. Our data dissect the cytotoxic and cytoprotective characteristics of HPV oncogenes in cer...
We aimed to assess the quality of life (QOL) of the patients with cervical cancer after initial treatment, the factors affecting QOL and their clinical relevance. A total of 256 patients with cervical cancer who visited Zhongnan Hospital of Wuhan University from January 2017 to December 2017 were enrolled in this study. The European Organization for Research and Treatment of Cancer Quality of Life Questionnaire Core-30 item (EORTC QLQ-C30) and cervical cancer module (EORTC QLQ-CX24) was used to assess the Q...
Pap smear and high-risk human papillomavirus (HR-HPV) DNA testing are the most widely applied methods for cervical cancer screening, but both methods are limited by their low specificity and lack of association with the patients' prognoses. The aim of the study was to compare the clinical and prognostic significance of HPV E6/E7 mRNA as an early biomarker with cytology and HPV DNA detection in cervical cancer screening.
The vertical transmission of HIV, from mother to child remains one of the biggest challenges all over the world. This study evaluated the implementation and effectiveness of the prevention of mother to child HIV transmission (PMTCT) program from 2011 to 2017 in Suzhou. A total of 107 HIV positive women were enrolled in the program, of which 11 were diagnosed through premarital examination, and 96 women were diagnosed through prenatal examination. Among the 96 pregnant women, 67 gave birth to 68 live neonate...
The platelet-to-lymphocyte ratio (PLR) has been reported to possess significant prognostic value in multiple types of cancer. However, its prognostic value in patients with cervical remains controversial. We conducted a meta-analysis to evaluate the prognostic value of pretreatment PLR in cervical cancer.
Given the dearth of government-sponsored programmes, preventive lifestyles and practices are the realistic hopes for millions of women in developing countries against cervical cancer. Early interventions for teenage high school girls have been advocated recently, but evidence-base for sustainable activities at this demographic is lacking. This article reduces this gap by determining the impact of two cervical cancer education techniques.
To demonstrate whether radiotherapy has an effect on the survival of patients with stage IVb (M1) cervical cancer, as it has not been adequately clarified.
To explore the function of fibulin-3 in cervical carcinoma malignant cell growth and metastasis, fibulin-3 expression in normal cervical tissue, cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN), and cervical carcinoma were evaluated by immunohistochemistry. Quantitative real-time-polymerase chain reaction, western blotting, and immunocytochemistry were performed to assess the expression of fibulin-3 at mRNA and protein levels in different invasive clone sublines. Fibulin-3 shRNA and fibulin-3 cDNA were used to tran...
The aim of this study was to determine the prognostic significance of PET/CT findings in women with cervical cancer and describe the normalization of lymph node SUVmax (nSUVmax).
BACKGROUND Accumulating studies demonstrate that microRNAs play crucial roles in multiple processes of cancer progression. Lower levels of miR-183 have been observed in diverse types of tumors but the mechanism and precise function of miR-183-5p in cervical cancer have largely not been investigated. MATERIAL AND METHODS The level of miR-183-5p in different cervical cancer cell lines and clinical tissues was detected qRT-PCR assays. Transwell and wound-healing migration assays were conducted to assess the fu...
Our goal was to evaluate the infrastructure of programs for the prevention of mother-to-child transmission (PMTCT) of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) in major delivery units in the Atlanta, Georgia, metropolitan statistical area and to assess the knowledge, attitude, and practice of providers in these facilities around PMTCT.
The aim of this survey was to acquire an overview of the current management of cervical cancer with an emphasis on the early disease stages.
Human papillomavirus (HPV)-based cervical cancer screening requires triage of HPV positive women to identify those at risk of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 2 (CIN2) or worse. We conducted a blinded case-control study within the HPV FOCAL randomized cervical cancer screening trial of women aged 25-65 to examine whether baseline methylation testing using the S5 classifier provided triage performance similar to an algorithm relying on cytology and HPV genotyping. Groups were randomly selected from 2...
Cervical cancer (CC) is a malignant solid tumor, which is one of the main causes of morbidity and mortality in women. Given that autophagy is an important factor promoting tumor progression, we aim to investigate the functional role of miR-338 in autophagy and proliferation of cervical cancer. In our study, expression of miR-338 was validated by quantitative RT-PCR in 30 paired cervical cancer tissues and normal tissues. We performed MTT, colony formation and cell cycle assay to explore the effect of miR-33...
Cervical cancer (CC) is one of the most common gynecologic tumors in women worldwide, with poor prognosis and low survival rate. In this study, we identified SNAP23 as a potential tumor suppressor gene in CC.
Standard treatment for locally advanced cervical cancer (LACC) includes concomitant chemoradiotherapy (CRT) that typically controls localized disease. However, most patients develop distant metastasis, ultimately leading to death.
