Minority College Students' HPV Knowledge, Awareness, and Vaccination History

The genital human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI) affecting males and females in the United States (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention [CDC], 2017a). It is estimated that 79 million individuals are infected with HPV, and 14 million Americans become newly infected with HPV each year (CDC, 2016). HPV can be contracted through vaginal, anal, or oral intercourse, as well as by skin-to-skin contact, and can cause cervical, vaginal, vulvar, anal, and oral cancers.

Authors: Zhou Y, Chi Y, Bhandari A, Xia E, Thakur PC, Qu J, Wang O, Zhang X Abstract BACKGROUND: Placental-Cadherin (CDH3), a cell adhesion molecule, is associated with the function of cells to bind with other cells and the extracellular matrix (ECM). CDH3 is highly expressed in many malignancies, and has been proved it could be a serum marker to monitor colorectal cancer, but the CDH3 expression levels in thyroid cancer is still not clear. In this article, we will illuminate the correlation between CDHs expression and thyroid cancer. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We analyzed the level of CDH3 expression in 60 pair of...

In this study, we investigated whether leptin, adiponectin, and their receptors have an impact on bladder cancer outgrowth and the mechanisms involved. We performed immunohistochemistry for leptin, leptin receptor (Ob-R), adiponectin, and adiponectin receptors (AdipoR1, AdipoR2) in bladder cancer tissue microarrays. Wound healing assay and western blot were then performed in human bladder cancer lines. The positive rates (0 vs 1+/2+/3+) of Ob-R (P=0.004), adiponectin (P

CONCLUSIONS: The result revealed RTL4 is closely related to the occurrence and development of PTC. RTL4 may participate in the HOTAIR-miR-206-ZCCHC16 ceRNA regulatory network and be regulated and play a role in the ceRNA regulatory network. It may be used as a target or indicator for the treatment and prognosis of PTC. PMID: 32655827 [PubMed]

Authors: Dai T, Deng M, Ye L, Liu R, Lin G, Chen X, Li H, Liu W, Yang Y, Chen G, Wang G Abstract The gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase to platelet ratio (GPR) has been reported as a non-invasive parameter for evaluating hepatic fibrosis and cirrhosis. However, only a few of studies investigated the relationship between GPR and liver cancer. Here, we sought to clarify the prognostic value of GPR as well as its combination with fibrinogen in patients with HBV-related hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). We performed a retrospective study using data collected from 302 HCC patients, and evaluated the association between GPR, fi...

In conclusion, we demonstrated a lncRNA KRT16P2/miR-1294/EGFR axis that regulates LSCC cell proliferation, invasion, and migration. The clinical application of this axis needs further in vivo and clinical investigation. PMID: 32655821 [PubMed]

UCLA Health Rates of sexually transmitted diseases have risen for the past four years to record highs in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention ’slatest analysis. In California, the state health departmentfound that the number of people diagnosed with syphilis, gonorrhea or chlamydia in 2017 was 45 percent higher than five years prior.These sorts of statistics may spark a fear that there ’s little we can do to protect ourselves — but that’s not the full story.Dr. Leena Nathan, an obstetrician/gynecologist at UCLA Health-Westlake Village, consults with peo...

When Charlie Sheen disclosed his HIV infection last fall, sexually transmitted infections were back in the public eye. His case will likely contribute to the belief many people have that HIV is caused by sexual promiscuity or injection drug use, when in reality having unprotected sex with someone HIV-positive just one time can lead to HIV infection. April is STD Awareness Month. The new term for STD is STI -- sexually transmitted infection -- to focus on the infection rather than the disease it could lead to. One way to mark the occasion is to get tested for HIV and thus help eradicate the stigma. A focus on HIV for STD A...
