For its first few years on the market, the human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccine was approved only for young girls. Over time, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has broadened its approval to include boys, as well as adults up to age 45—allowing more people to get the cancer-preventing vaccine, but also breeding confusion about who should get vaccinated and when. On Thursday, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released new recommendations, based on guidance from the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices, that should clear up some of that confusion. The CDC reaffirmed that its prior...

CONCLUSION: The presence of small dysplastic cells displaying marked hyperchromasia,thickening of nuclear contour, and prominent nucleoli on Pap smear strongly suggest the presence of CIN in ASC-H cases. PMID: 31350977 [PubMed - in process]

CONCLUSIONS: The higher frequency of HR-HPV than the LR-HPV withidentification of 4 mixed cases indicates that our women are at risk of developing cervical cancer. Detection of HR-HPVin NILM and ASC-US smears with restriction of some strains to these 2 categories highlights the great value of HPVgenotyping as a surrogate test to pick up unscreened women at risk of developing cervical malignancy particularlywhen a proper screening program is absent.

Authors: Song T, Seong SJ, Lee SK, Kim BR, Ju W, Kim KH, Nam K, Sim JC, Kim TJ Abstract The purpose of this study was to develop an ideal cervical cancer screening model to reduce false-negative errors in Korea where there is a high prevalence of cervical cancer. We conducted a cross-sectional study including 33,531 women who underwent routine cervical cancer screening in Korea. Colposcopic examinations were performed after abnormal results on their screening tests. Diagnostic capacities including sensitivity, specificity, and false-negative rate of each screening scenario were analysed at the CIN1 or worse (CIN1+)...

CONCLUSIONS: Korean women were more likely to report satisfaction with alternative modalities (self-sampling and urine sampling) for CCS in comparison to the Pap test. This suggests that self-collected modalities may help with improving CCS uptake rates by eliminating burden related with the Pap test. However, further studies for test accuracy and cost-effective analysis of the alternative modalities should be conducted in order to apply CCS. PMID: 31328458 [PubMed - in process]
