    Abstract : The aim of this thesis was to evaluate cervical physiological changes by three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound during pregnancy and to investigate the ability of 3D power Doppler to predict time to spontaneous and induced delivery in prolonged pregnancy. The thesis is based on five studies: reproducibility of cervical measurements by 3D power Doppler ultrasound (study I), reference data representative normal findings of the cervix assessed by 3D ultrasound during pregnancy (studies II, III) and the ability of 3D power Doppler to predict time to spontaneous and induced delivery in prolonged pregnancy.

    Abstract : Cervical adenocarcinoma (ADC) represents about 20% of invasive cervical cancers. Implementation of screening programs that have led to a decrease in squamous cell carcinoma (SCC) has only had a limited preventive effect on adenocarcinoma as the incidence of ADC, especially among younger women, has steadily increased in recent decades.

    Abstract : GENITAL HUMAN PAPILLOMAVIRUS (HPV)INFECTIONS AND THEIR IMPORTANCE FOR THEHANDLING OF PRECANCEROUS LESIONS OF THE CERVIX UTERI Keng-Ling Chua Background: The developmentof cervical carcinoma, in a vast majorityof cases, is closely related to infectionswith certain types of the humanpapillomavirus (HPV). The virus is sup-posed to exert its oncogenic effect mainlythrough interference with two proteinsthat are responsible for growth arrest asa response to DNA damage. READ MORE

    Abstract : Background: Cervical carcinoma is the third most common malignant disease in women worldwide. The absolute frequency of adenocarcinoma of cervix uteri has increased during the last decade and accounts for about 15-20% of invasive cervical cancers. READ MORE

  5. 5. Changes in human uterine innervation in term pregnancy and labor occurence and roles of neurotrophins and TRPV1

    Abstract : Objective: Cervical ripening, is a prerequisite for successful labor, which is often very painful and involves an inflammatory reaction. However, little is presently known con-cerning nerve-related changes in the human uterus during labor and the fundamental hy-pothesis tested here was that labor pain emanates primarily from the cervix uteri.
