Gynecologic malignancies are among the most prevalent cancers affecting women worldwide, but they are heterogeneous diseases with varying risk factors, management paradigms, and outcomes. Gynecologic cancers mediated by human papillomavirus (HPV) are preventable and curable with early detection and treatment. Dramatic reductions in cervical cancer incidence and mortality have been achieved through cancer screening and HPV vaccination. Radiotherapy plays a central role in the management of gynecologic malignancies. For some cancers, radiotherapy alone can be curative. More often, radiotherapy is used in conjunction with sur...

CONCLUSION: Changing the sexual image of the vaccine could help to establish a collective vaccination policy. Public health policies play an essential role by working with general practitioners and by increasing visibility on the web. The usefulness of the vaccine in 2019 seems to be questioned by Internet users as shown by their major approval of cervical smears. However, these two methods remain complementary in the fight against cervical cancer. PMID: 31718831 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

ConclusionThis study evaluated the survival impact of HPV infection in LSCC patients. The OS of the HPV ‐positive group was better than that of the HPV‐negative group in terms of short‐term survival. Compared with the HPV‐negative group, the HPV‐positive group had a better trend of DFS, suggesting that a larger sample size and further exploration of the pathology and local control of HPV‐p ositive tumors are needed.

AbstractBuschke-L öwenstein tumor (BLT) is a rare sexually transmitted disease, mostly described in clinical literature as case reports or small series. Here, we investigated the clinicopathologic features of BLT in a total of 38 cases retrieved from multiple academic institutions. The average age was 47.6 ± 12.8 ( mean ± SD) years old at diagnosis. The male to female ratio was 4.4:1. Common presenting symptoms were pain/discomfort, bleeding, mass lesion, and discharge. It was frequently linked to smoking and positive human immunodeficiency virus status. The tumor size and thickness were 8.5 ± 6.6...

A case-control study was used to explore the association between the methylation status in the promoter regions of the cGAS, MAVS, and TRAF3 genes and the diseases of cervical precancerous lesions (CPL) and cervical cancer (CC) in a Southern Chinese population, and to further explore their interaction effects with high-risk human papillomavirus (hrHPV) infection and environmental factors in these diseases. The study protocol was approved by the ethics committee of The First Affiliated Hospital of Jinan University, and this study was performed in 97 healthy controls, 75 patients with CPL and 33 patients with CC, while each ...

AbstractAs rates of human papillomavirus (HPV) –related oropharyngeal cancer (OPC) continue to rise, the dental community’s role in primary prevention efforts related to HPV vaccination will become increasingly important. The aim of this study was to assess knowledge, beliefs, practices, and perceived barriers regarding HPV and HPV vaccine a dvocacy within the dental community. A sample of 266 dentists and dental hygienists completed an online survey, and responses were then analyzed using frequencies of responses,t tests, chi-square tests, and Spearman ’s correlations. Ninety percent of providers believe...
