Prevalence and distribution of human papillomavirus genotypes among women with high ‐grade squamous intraepithelial lesion and invasive cervical cancer in Ganzhou, China
Journal of Clinical Laboratory Analysis, EarlyView.
ConclusionAlthough cervical cancer screening exists in almost all developing countries, what is missing is both opportunistic and systematic organised population-based screenings. Cervical cancer screening programmes need to be integrated into already existing HIV services to enable early detection and treatment. There is a need to offer opportunistic and coordinated screening programmes that are provider-initiated to promote early identification of cervical precancerous lesions.Systematic review registrationPROSPEROCRD42018095702

Women who used IUD had half the risk of developing cervical cancer. The mechanism how IUD is a protector factor is still unknown. Could be improving the clearance of HPV infection or stopping progression to cancer from preneoplasic lesion.The aim of the study is to check if...
ConclusionsInfection with HrHPV is a major risk factor for high ‐grade cytology, while VIA positivity is associated with HIV and to a lesser extent with HrHPV.This article is protected by copyright. All rights reserved.
An important inverse relation between IUD use and risk of cervical cancer has been proved. Women who used IUD had half the risk of developing cervical cancer. The mechanism how IUD is a protector factor is still unknown. Could be improving the clearance of HPV infection or stopping progression to cancer from preneoplasic lesion.The aim of the study is to check if IUD increases HPV clearance, that is, checking if after 1 year HPV infection disappears in more patients using IUD than those not using it.
CONCLUSION: The results underscored the necessity to develop health education and promotion aimed at improving the knowledge and vaccination practice in immigrants and refugees. PMID: 30420043 [PubMed - in process]

Although anatomically diverse, human papillomavirus (HPV)-driven cancers have a common etiology and similar mutations that overlap with but are distinct from those found in HPV-negative cancers. Building on prior studies that have characterized subsets of head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) and cervical squamous cell carcin...
Kits to self-test for human papillomavirus (HPV) mailed to underserved women helped to identify virtually all of those with high-risk HPV oncogenic types, in a proof-of-principle study.Medscape Medical News
To the Editor In an Editorial, Dr Massad discussed the benefits of liquid-based cytology vs human papillomavirus (HPV) testing for cervical cancer screening and suggested that using both tests together may be necessary until a higher proportion of the population is vaccinated against HPV. Perhaps a more cost-effective approach would be to use a single screening test with a relatively high sensitivity to identify women who require further testing or more regular follow-up. In the United Kingdom, cervical screening is performed every 3 years for women aged 25 to 49 years and then every 5 years from age 50 to 64 years. Abnorm...
In this study, we reviewed studies that have addressed the cross‐talk between oxidative stress and CC pathogenesis and resistance to therapy.
The objective of this study was to determine if adolescent girls and young women with obesity are less likely to receive HPV vaccination compared with individuals with normal weight.
