Namibia: 11,000 Undergo Cervical Cancer Screening

[New Era] Oshakati -In its quest to fight cervical cancer the ministry of health has in the last nine months, since the introduction of the Visual Inspection of the Cervix with Acetic Acid (VIA) technique, screened 11 000 women of whom 8 000 were HIV positive.

This study aimed to evaluate the clinical value of HR-HPV viral loads to predict the residual/recurrence lesions among women with high-grade squamous lesions or worse ( ≥ HSIL) after surgery. Finally, 301 women who underwent primary screening of cervical cancer using polymerase-chain-reaction-(PCR)-reverse-dot-blot-(RDB) human papillomavirus (HPV) genotyping and cytology assays were enrolled. They received surgery and took HR-HPV viral loads with a BioPerfectus Multiplex Real-Time PCR assay. Colposcopy biopsies were performed in patients with HPV-16/18(+) and/or TCT ≥ ASCUS with HR-HPV(+). The ri...

Authors: Lu F, Cui D, Mu B, Zhao L, Mu P Abstract Tropomodulin-1 (TMOD1) is a key regulator of actin dynamics, which caps the pointed end of actin filaments. TMOD1 has been reported to be involved in several cellular processes, including neurite outgrowth, spine formation and cell migration. Increasing evidence demonstrates that TMOD1 is implicated in several aspects of cancer development. The present study aimed to investigate the role of TMOD1 in cervical cancer. HeLa and CaSki cell lines, derived from human cervical cancer, were used to evaluate the function of TMOD1. Cell motility was measured via a wound-heali...

This review sought to evaluate the current literature on reproductive and oncologic outcomes after fertility-sparing surgery for early stage cervical cancer (stage IA1 –IB1) including cold-knife conization/simple trachelectomy, vaginal radical trachelectomy, abdominal radical trachelectomy, and laparoscopic radical trachelectomy with or without robotic assistance. A systematic review using the preferred reporting items for systematic reviews and meta-analysis (P RISMA) checklist to evaluate the current literature on fertility-sparing surgery for early stage cervical cancer and its subsequent clinical pregnancy rate, ...

Cervical cancer remains exceedingly rare in adolescents. Since 2009, United States screening guidelines have recommended against screening in young, immunocompetent women under 21 years of age. Yet despite strong recommendations against screening this population, many providers still do leading to unnecessary biopsies, anxiety, and healthcare costs. The current objective is to ascertain both the trend over-time and the factors associated with unindicated cervical cancer screening tests in adolescent females within a single large health care system.

The American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology (ASCCP) has recommended earlier cervical cancer screening in high-risk immunocompromised patients under 30 years of age, including those with systemic lupus erythematous (SLE) within 1 year of immunosuppression (IS) and/or within 1 year of coitarche. High risk patients with SLE are defined as those on 2 or more IS drugs. The purpose of this study was to examine pap results among SLE adolescents.
