  2. 2. Self-sampling for HPV testing in primary cervical screening : Including clinical and health economic aspects

    Author : Riina Aarnio; Matts Olovsson; Ulf B. Gyllensten; Ingrid Wikström; Christer Borgfeldt; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; HPV; self-sampling; cervical screening; CIN2 ; cost-effectiveness; Obstetrik och gynekologi; Obstetrics and Gynaecology;

    Abstract : Persistent infection with high-risk human papillomavirus (HPV) is a prerequisite for the development of cervical cancer. HPV testing has higher sensitivity for high-grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN2+) than cytology, resulting in more effective screening. READ MORE

  3. 3. Sensitive Forensic DNA Analysis : Application of Pyrosequencing and Real-time PCR Quantification

    Author : Hanna Andréasson; Marie Allen; Ulf Gyllensten; Pål Nyrén; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Genetics; forensic; sensitive DNA analysis; DNA quantification; mtDNA; Real-time PCR; Pyrosequencing; Genetik; Clinical genetics; Klinisk genetik;

    Abstract : The field of forensic genetics is growing fast and the development and optimisation of more sensitive, faster and more discriminating forensic DNA analysis methods is highly important. In this thesis, an evaluation of the use of novel DNA technologies and the development of specific applications for use in forensic casework investigations are presented. READ MORE

  4. 4. Identification and clinical implementation of biomarkers for cervical cancer

    Author : Malin Berggrund; Ulf Gyllensten; Stefan Enroth; Matts Olovsson; Pär Sparén; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : Cervical cancer; Human papilloma virus; Screening; Self-sampling; Biomarkers; Vaginal microbiota; Medicinsk vetenskap; Medical Science;

    Abstract : Introduction of organised screening programs and prophylactic vaccination against human papilloma virus (HPV) have successfully reduced the incidence of cervical cancer globally. In Sweden, the incidence has been reduced by about 50 % since the introduction of the national screening programme in the late 1960’s. READ MORE
