  1. 1. Human papillomavirus and cervical cancer : detection of potential markers of disease progression using liquid-based cytology

    Author : Ingrid Norman; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : This protect aims to evaluate alternative strategies to screen for cervical cancer including liquid-based cytology (LBC) with supplementary reflex testing for human papillomavirus (HPV), p16INK4a, HPV-L1 capsid protein, and miR-205 for use as possible diagnostic and prognostic markers in women with abnormal findings detected through the organized cervical cancer screening program. This split-sample study enrolled 137 women with atypical Pap smear findings to compare the effectiveness of conventional cytology (CC) with LBC cytology for cervical cancer screening. READ MORE

  2. 2. Monoclonal antibodies against human papillomavirus E7 oncoprotein for diagnosis of cervical neoplasia and cancer

    Author : Maria Lidqvist; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Human papillomavirus HPV ; Cervical cancer; Cervical neoplasia; E7 oncoprotein; Monoclonal antibodies; Cytology; Immunocytochemistry; Phage display;

    Abstract : Cervical cancer is the second most common cancer among women worldwide with half a million of new cases every year. Cervical cancer is caused by oncogenic human papillomaviruses (HPVs), with HPV16 and 18 being the most frequently detected types. READ MORE

  3. 3. Cervical cancer prevention Studies on possible improvements

    Author : Björn Strander; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : Cervical intraepithelial neoplasia; cytology; colposcopy; HPV; cervical neoplasm; epidemiology; treatment; follow up;

    Abstract : Aims: The aim of this study is to target and assess possible improvements for women attending cervical cancer screening programs. Methods: In a randomized study the use of ThinPrep liquid based cytology (LBC) was tested against conventional cytology. READ MORE

  4. 4. Cervical dysplasia and cervical cancer in pregnancy: diagnosis and outcome

    Author : Cecilia Kärrberg; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Cervical dysplasia; cervical cancer; pregnancy; colposcopic scoring system; regression; persistence; progression; HPV DNA test; HPV mRNA E6 E7 test; p16INK4a;

    Abstract : ABSTRACT:Cervical cancer is one of the most common types of cancer that is diagnosed during pregnancy. The primary aim in investigation of atypical cervical cytology during pregnancy is to exclude cancer so that further treatment of the lesion can be postponed until after delivery. READ MORE

  5. 5. Regulation of Human Papillomavirus Type 16 Late L1 mRNA Splicing

    Author : Xiaoze Li; Avdelningen för medicinsk mikrobiologi; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; HPV-16; cervical cancer; RNA processing; alternative splicing; splicing enhancer; splicing silencer; viral persistance; SR proteins; hnRNP proteins;

    Abstract : Human papillomaviruses (HPVs) cause almost half of the human cancers that are attributable to viruses. HPV type 16 is the most carcinogenic type among the HPVs and is detected in 50% of all cervical cancers. HPV-16 infects epithelial cells and HPV-16 gene expression is tightly linked to the differentiation stage of the infected cells. READ MORE
