HPV-cytology Testing Versus Cytology Testing for the Detection of High Grade CIN

2014-08-27 03:16:20 | BioPortfolio

Summary

To compare the effects of conventional cytology testing with concommitant HPV-cytology testing for the detection of high grade cervical lesions in primary cervical cancer screening in Hong Kong

Hypotheses:

1. There is a significant difference in the number of CIN2+ cases detected between the cytology testing group and the cytology-HPV co-testing group at baseline.

2. Significantly more CIN2+ cases will be detected at the second round of screening among participants with normal cytology result in the control arm than those with normal cytology and negative HPV results in the intervention arm.

HPV Testing for Cervical Cancer Screening Study

This is a randomised controlled trial of HPV testing with cytology triage for HPV positive women compared to liquid-based cervical cytology (LBC). Although LBC is not widely used for cervi...

DNA Cytometry for Cervical Cancer Screening in China

Very few screenings of any kind will be possible during a woman's lifetime in most low-resource regions, where 80% of the half-million global cases of cervical cancer occur every year. Alt...

Cervical cancer is the leading cause of cancer death among women in Botswana. The burden of cervical cancer is largely related to the high prevalence of HIV in Botswana (22%), as HIV is kn...

Screening Study for Cervical Pre-cancer and Cancer Prevention in South African Women.

Nearly 8 000 new cervical cancer cases are diagnosed in South Africa per year; many are still undiagnosed and about 50% of diagnosed cases succumb per year. Although the current prevalence...

Evaluation of a validated methylation triage signature for human papillomavirus positive women in the HPV FOCAL cervical cancer screening trial.

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...

Cervical cancer represents the second leading cause of malignant neoplasm mortality in women globally. Cervical cytology is the most important screening study. It is therefore of interest to know the ...

Cytology and direct HPV testing on Fine-Needle aspirates from cervical lymph node metastases of patients with Oropharyngeal Squamous Cell Carcinoma or occult primary.

Diagnostic performance of the E6/E7 mRNA-based OPTIMYGENE HR-HPV RT-qDx assay for cervical cancer screening.

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 a...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

Testing of immune status in the diagnosis and therapy of cancer, immunoproliferative and immunodeficiency disorders, and autoimmune abnormalities. Changes in immune parameters are of special significance before, during and following organ transplantation. Strategies include measurement of tumor antigen and other markers (often by RADIOIMMUNOASSAY), studies of cellular or humoral immunity in cancer etiology, IMMUNOTHERAPY trials, etc.

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.

Detection of or testing for certain ALLELES, mutations, genotypes, or karyotypes that are associated with genetic traits, heritable diseases, or with a predisposition to a disease, or that may lead to the disease in descendants. It includes prenatal genetic testing.
