RATIONALE: Vaccines made from antigens may make the body build an immune response to kill abnormal cervical cells and may be effective in preventing cervical cancer.
- Determine the efficacy of SGN-00101, in terms of complete histologic regression, in patients with grade III cervical intraepithelial neoplasia.
- Determine the toxicity of this drug in these patients.
- Determine change in lesion size in these patients after treatment with this drug.
- Compare histologic response before and after treatment with this drug in these patients.
OUTLINE: This is a randomized, multicenter study. Patients are randomized to 1 of 2 treatment arms.
- Arm I: Patients receive SGN-00101 subcutaneously once on weeks 1, 4, and 8 in the absence of disease progression.
- Arm II: Patients receive standard care. At week 15, all patients undergo large loop excision of the transformation zone under colposcopy.
Patients are followed at 19 weeks, every 3 months for 1 year, every 6 months for 2 years, and then annually thereafter.
PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 28-84 patients (14-42 per treatment arm) will be accrued for this study within 12-48 months.
Allocation: Randomized, Control: Active Control, Primary Purpose: Prevention

The purpose of this study is to determine the safety and tolerability of HspE7 and Poly-ICLC when given together
RATIONALE: Chemoprevention therapy is the use of certain drugs to try to prevent the development of cancer or to treat early cancer. SGN-00101 may be effective in preventing the developmen...
RATIONALE: Vaccines, such as SGN-00101, may make the body build an immune response to kill human papillomavirus and abnormal cervical cells and may be effective in preventing cervical canc...
The purpose of this study is to learn methods to encourage women to get recommended cervical cancer screening. Cervical cancer screening is an important part of cervical cancer prevention....
Although highly curable, cervical cancer kills thousands of women in developing countries annually. The investigators will pilot a project to improve detection of cervical cancer in Kilima...
The twin prevention strategies of HPV vaccination and cervical cancer screening reduce new cases and averts deaths, yet women still develop or die from cervical cancer. To assess and better understand...
The aims of the Fukui Cervical Cancer Screening (FCCS) study are to determine the frequency of women with high-risk HPV (hrHPV), whether HPV16 or HPV18 (HPV16/18), in the Japanese cancer screening pop...
microRNA (miR)-141-3p has context-dependent effects on tumor progression. In this study, we attempted to explore the expression and function of miR-141-3p in cervical cancer. We found that miR-141-3p ...
Targeting mitochondrial respiration has been documented as an effective therapeutic strategy in cancer. However, the impact of mitochondrial respiration inhibition on cervical cancer cells are not wel...
Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer in women in developing countries, including India. Recently, microRNAs (miRNAs) are gaining importance in cancer biology because of their involvement i...
Morphological abnormalities of the cervical EPITHELIUM, usually revealed in PAP SMEAR, which do not meet the criteria for squamous CERVICAL INTRAEPITHELIAL NEOPLASIA or SQUAMOUS CELL CARCINOMAS of the CERVIX . It may be a sign of infection with certain types of human papillomavirus (HPV).or sign of a benign (not cancer) growth, such as a cyst or polyp or, in menopausal women, of low hormone levels. More testing, such as HPV test, may be needed.
A network of nerve fibers originating in the upper four cervical spinal cord segments. The cervical plexus distributes cutaneous nerves to parts of the neck, shoulders, and back of the head, and motor fibers to muscles of the cervical spinal column, infrahyoid muscles, and the diaphragm.
A parameter usually used in PRENATAL ULTRASONOGRAPHY to measure the length of the uterine neck (CERVIX UTERI). Cervical length or its shortening is used to identify and prevent early cervical opening and PRETERM BIRTH.
Soft tissue tumors or cancer arising from the mucosal surfaces of the LIP; oral cavity; PHARYNX; LARYNX; and cervical esophagus. Other sites included are the NOSE and PARANASAL SINUSES; SALIVARY GLANDS; THYROID GLAND and PARATHYROID GLANDS; and MELANOMA and non-melanoma skin cancers of the head and neck. (from Holland et al., Cancer Medicine, 4th ed, p1651)
Tumors or cancer of the UTERINE CERVIX.
Cervical cancer is a malignant neoplasm of the cervix uteri or cervical area. Symptoms include vaginal bleeding, but may not present until later stages of the cancer. Cervical cancer can be treated using surgery (including local excision) in early stages...
In a clinical trial or interventional study, participants receive specific interventions according to the research plan or protocol created by the investigators. These interventions may be medical products, such as drugs or devices; procedures; or change...
