Self-collected Swabs for HPV Testing in 18-24 Year Old Women

2014-08-27 03:14:39 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this study is to compare methods for transporting self-collected swabs for HPV testing in 18-24 year old women and to look at risk factors for HPV infection in 18-24 year old women.

Description

We propose a cross-sectional study among 150 women in the United States who have used Internet dating sites in the past year in order to examine risk factors for high-risk HPV infections in 18-24 year old online daters, and evaluate strategies for transporting and storing self-collected samples for HPV testing. We will ask participants to complete a written questionnaire on their health, sexual behavior, and attitudes toward self-collecting vaginal swabs, HPV vaccination, and cervical cancer screening. Also, we will ask the women to self-collect two sequential vaginal swab samples that will be transported and stored according to the two strategies described above. Each sample will be tested for type-specific HPV DNA using a PCR-based assay.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Vaccines or candidate vaccines used to prevent PAPILLOMAVIRUS INFECTIONS. Human vaccines are intended to reduce the incidence of UTERINE CERVICAL NEOPLASMS, so they are sometimes considered a type of CANCER VACCINES. They are often composed of CAPSID PROTEINS, especially L1 protein, from various types of ALPHAPAPILLOMAVIRUS.

ONCOGENE PROTEINS from papillomavirus that deregulate the CELL CYCLE of infected cells and lead to NEOPLASTIC CELL TRANSFORMATION. Papillomavirus E7 proteins have been shown to interact with various regulators of the cell cycle including RETINOBLASTOMA PROTEIN and certain cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitors.

A type of XIPAPILLOMAVIRUS causing alimentary carcinoma in cattle. It is related to Bovine papillomavirus 3.

A type of human papillomavirus especially associated with malignant tumors of the genital and RESPIRATORY MUCOSA.

Neoplasms of the skin and mucous membranes caused by papillomaviruses. They are usually benign but some have a high risk for malignant progression.
