Acceptability of a multicomponent, community-based, HPV self-test intervention among Jamaican women
This study suggests that a multicomponent, community-based intervention that includes education and self-testing for the virus that causes cervical cancer (i.e., Human Papillomavirus, HPV) might increase screening rates. Community outreach workers were hired and recruited 163 women from two low socioeconomic status communities in Kingston, aged 30 to 65  years, and who had not had a Pap test in at least 3 years, to use an HPV self-test kit. Almost all the women (95.6%) used and returned the kit and reported in structured interviews that it was easy to use and preferable to visiting a doctor. Paired samplest-tests...

ConclusionWe posit that maternal post-partum weight retention and not gestational weight gain itself among normal/underweight women may impact subsequent risk of EOC. If our hypothesis is supported in other studies designed to assess this question directly, then counseling women on the importance of healthy weight management after a pregnancy could provide another means to help women reduce their risk of this often-fatal malignancy.

The FamilyTalk randomized controlled trial: patient-reported outcomes in clinical genetic sequencing for colorectal cancer
AbstractAs genetics gains favor in clinical oncology, it is important to address patient concerns around confidentiality, privacy, and security of genetic information that might otherwise limit its utilization. We designed a randomized controlled trial to assess the social impact of an online educational tool (FamilyTalk) to increase family communication about colorectal cancer (CRC) risk and screening. Of 208 randomized participants, 149 (71.6%) returned six-month surveys. Overall, there was no difference in CRC screening between the study arms.

Downstaging of cervical cancer in Tanzania over a 16-year period
AbstractGlobally, the highest cervical cancer mortality rates are found in East Africa. Visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA)-based screening in resource-poor settings has been shown to decrease the proportion of women presenting with late-stage cervical cancer, a process known as clinical downstaging. The only cancer treatment center in Tanzania, Ocean Road Cancer Institute (ORCI) in Dar es Salaam, opened a VIA-based cervical cancer screening program in 2002. We reviewed 6,676 medical records of cervical cancer patients at the ORCI from 2002 –2011 to 2014–2018 for stage at diagnosis and screening status, am...
