Authors: Okunade KS Abstract Cervical cancer is by far the most common HPV-related disease. About 99.7% of cervical cancer cases are caused by persistent genital high-risk human papillomavirus (HPV) infection. Worldwide, cervical cancer is one of the most common cancer in women with an estimated 528,000 new cases reported in 2012. Most HPV infections clear spontaneously but persistent infection with the oncogenic or high-risk types may cause cancer of the oropharynx and anogenital regions. The virus usually infects the mucocutaneous epithelium and produces viral particles in matured epithelial cells and then causes...

AbstractThree new polyacetylenic alcohols, siphonellanols A –C (1–3), together with two known polyacetylenic alcohols (4–5), were isolated from the CHCl3-soluble fraction of the methanolic extract of the marine spongeSiphonochalina siphonella, collected in Egypt. The structures of1–3 were determined by spectroscopic analyses of their 1D-, 2D-NMR, and MS spectra and by comparisons with reported data. The cytotoxicity assay revealed that1–3 exhibited moderate cytotoxic activities against a human cervical cancer cell line (HeLa), a human breast cancer cell line (MCF-7), and a human lung cancer ce...

Tracking progress towards UHC requires measurement of both these dimensions, and a way of trading them off against one another.MethodsWe measured service coverage by a weighted geometric average of four prevention indicators (antenatal care, full immunisation, and screening for breast and cervical cancers) and...

Kipp B Abstract First Diagnosis of a Squamos Cell Carcinoma of the Cervix Uteri FIGO 1B1 in Pregnancy Abstract. The squamous cell cancer of the cervix uteri is one of the most frequent detected cancers in pregnancy. As the tumor is in direct contact to the pregnancy, the treatment is challenging and has to be tackled individually. So far, standard concepts or studies are missing. Treatment should be focused on the oncological security of the mother like in non-pregnant women and should be according to current guidelines. Thanks to the existing therapy options during pregnancy, it is a reasonable option to maintai...

We describe a feature, give a location, and then synthesise a conclusion. For example: There is an irregular mass with microcalcification in the upper outer quadrant of the breast. Findings are consistent with malignancy. You don’t need to understand the words I used here, but the point is that the features (irregular mass, microcalcification) are consistent with the diagnosis (breast cancer, malignancy). A doctor reading this report already sees internal consistency, and that reassures them that the report isn’t wrong. An common example of a wrong report could be: Irregular mass or microcalcificat...
