Human Papilloma Virus DNA Self-Test

2014-08-27 03:47:10 | BioPortfolio


HPV DNA testing by a clinician has been shown to be highly sensitive in detecting cervical disease. Can we prove that HPV self-testing will be sufficiently sensitive to detect disease in high risk population who for various reasons would not have routine pap smear screening?


Women between the ages of 18 years to post-menopausal with documented abnormal pap smear atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance and higher will be enrolled into the study. Patients will be taught how to collect vaginal samples with dacron swab and vaginal tampons by means of instructional video and manufacturer's instruction guide respectively. Physicians will perform pap smear and colposcopy. All samples will be sent to the University of Louisville lab for processing for HPV DNA detection by Hybrid capture 2 method.

DNA probes specific for the identification of human papilloma virus.

A small, often impalpable benign papilloma arising in a lactiferous duct and frequently causing bleeding from the nipple. (Stedman, 25th ed)

Product of the retinoblastoma tumor suppressor gene. It is a nuclear phosphoprotein hypothesized to normally act as an inhibitor of cell proliferation. Rb protein is absent in retinoblastoma cell lines. It also has been shown to form complexes with the adenovirus E1A protein, the SV40 T antigen, and the human papilloma virus E7 protein.

A strain of PRIMATE T-LYMPHOTROPIC VIRUS 2, closely related to the human HTLV-1 virus. The clinical, hematological, and histopathological characteristics of the disease in STLV-infected monkeys are very similar to those of human adult T-cell leukemia. Subgroups include the African green monkey subtype (STLV-I-AGM), for which the nucleotide sequence is 95% homologous with that of HUMAN T-LYMPHOTROPIC VIRUS 1, and the Asian rhesus macaque subtype (STLV-I-MM), for which the nucleotide sequence is 90% homologous with that of HUMAN T-LYMPHOTROPIC VIRUS 1.

A genus of the family CORONAVIRIDAE which causes respiratory or gastrointestinal disease in a variety of mostly mammals. Human betacoronaviruses include HUMAN ENTERIC CORONAVIRUS; HUMAN CORONAVIRUS OC43; MERS VIRUS; and SARS VIRUS. Members have either core transcription regulatory sequences of 5’-CUAAAC-3’ or 5’-CUAAAC-3’ and mostly have no ORF downstream to the N protein gene.
