Where Women’s Health Clinics Close, Cervical Cancer Outcomes Worsen



MONDAY, Sept. 16, 2019 — As government funding dried up and many women’s health clinics across America closed, cervical cancer screening rates fell and deaths from the disease rose, a new report shows.
Nearly 100 women’s health clinics in the…

Cervical cancers are caused by persistent human papillomavirus (HPV) infections [1]. To date, HPV DNA testing using clinician-obtained cervical cells is the reference for identifying cervical infection. However, great interest has been shown for the use of self-sampling methods to detect HPV [2]. One method for self-sampling to be considered is the collection of f…

Metabolomics generate a profile of small molecules from plant extracts, which could be directly responsible for bioactivity effects. Using dry-column flash chromatography enabled a rapid and inexpensive method for the very efficient separation of plant extract with a high resolution. This separation method coupled to NMR and FTIR-based metabolomics is applied to identify bioactive natural products. OPLS multivariate analysis method, was used for correlation the chemical composition of the plant extracts, Amphoricarpos autariatus, with the results of cytotoxic activity against Human cervical adenocar…

Cervical cancer (CC) is one of the leading causes of cancer-associated mortalities in women from developing countries. Similar to other types of cancer, CC is considered to be a multifactorial disease, involving socioeconomic, cultural, immunological and epigenetic factors, as well as persistent human papilloma virus (HPV) infection. It has been well established that cancer stem cells (CSCs) play an important role in defining tumor size, the speed of development and the level of regressi…

The present case report investigated the clinical characteristics of primary hematological malignancy of the uterine cervixin five patients. Among the five patients, three patients were diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma (NHL) and two patients with myeloid sarcoma (MS) of the uterine cervix. Biopsies of the uterine cervices demonstrated the involvement of lymphoid cells or myeloid blasts cells. Immunohistochemical staining demonstrated the expression of B-lymphoid and myeloid lineage markers. The associated lysozyme, myeloperoxidase and mast/stem…

In conclusion, our results revealed that RHPN1-AS1 promoted cervical cancer progression via targeting miR-299-3p/FGF2 axis. Our data suggested that RHPN1-AS1/miR-299-3p/FGF2 axis may be a promising target for cervical cancer treatment.

This study aims to investigate acceptance of vaginal self-sampling for high-risk human papilloma virus (HPV) among long-term screening non-attenders at increased cervical cancer risk and to identify leverage points to promote screening adherence among these women. Forty-three long-term screening non-attenders performed home vaginal self-sampling for HPV, had positive HPV results, and subsequently attended gynecologic examination. Sixteen (37.2%) had high-grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN2 or 3), and two had invasive cervical cancer. Forty-one of these women completed a questionnaire concerning Specific Knowledg…

No study examined the frequency of human papillomavirus (HPV) genotypes by surface plasmon resonance (SPR) in southwest China. This was a cross-sectional survey (The Second Affiliated Hospital of Kunming Medical University, 10/2010 to 12/2011) in 150 patients who were hospitalized or volunteered for cervical cancer (CC) screening. A HPV typing kit was used to detect 24 types of HPV by the SPR technique. The HPV-positive rate was 34.8% in women with normal cytology and 92.9% in women with CC. The frequency of HPV16 increased from 9.4% for wo…
