2013-01-04 09:45:40

Lawrence LeBlond for redOrbit.com - Your Universe Online All too often women are being screened for cervical cancer when they do not need it, say researchers. Many women are having the cancer screening even after they have had a full hysterectomy. Recent data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) shows that about 60 percent of women who no longer have a cervix still get cervical cancer screening. For years, experts have said that women who have had a full...

Even with all of this attention, many are still in the dark as to exactly what HPV is, how it is spread, its potential effects to one´s health, and how to successfully prevent it. To date, there are more than 70 different types of HPV. Of these, certain...

But treated women still at greater risk of cervical cancer than women not needing treatment Testing women to see if they are cured of HPV (the virus that can cause genital warts and cervical cancer) following treatment for abnormal cells on the surface of the cervix is more effective and cheaper than cytology testing (cervical screening) alone, suggests a study published on bmj.com today. A second study published today, finds that the risk of cervical cancer after treatment and cytological...

Human papillomavirus (HPV) has long been implicated in cervical cancer, but details of how it happens have remained a mystery. Now researchers at the University of Wisconsin-Madison have found that a single HPV protein is required for cervical cancer and even pre-cancer growths in the cervix to survive. In anticipation of a clinical trial in humans, the scientists and their collaborators are moving quickly to test if a gene-silencing technique could cripple the protein and eliminate...

Singapore, June 12, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - A team of scientists from A*STAR's Institute of Medical Biology (IMB) and Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS) together with clinicians from Boston's Brigham and Women's Hospital (BWH) have identified a unique set of cells in the cervix that are the cause of human papillomaviruses (HPV) related cervical cancers. Significantly, the team also showed that these cells do not regenerate when excised. These findings have immense clinical implications in...

Researchers from Brigham and Women's Hospital uncover a population of cells that are targeted by the cancer-causing human papillomaviruses Virtually all cervical cancers are caused by HPV infections, with just two HPV types, 16 and 18, responsible for about 70 percent of all cases, according to the National Cancer Institute. Scientists have presumed for decades that the cervical cancers that develop from HPV infection arise in a specific location in the cervix. Now, new research from...

Research: Effect of the human papillomavirus quadrivalent vaccine in a subgroup of women with cervical and vulvar disease: Retrospective pooled analysis of trial data Women who are diagnosed with pre-cancerous cervical conditions after receiving the HPV vaccine can still benefit from a considerably reduced risk of reoccurring disease, a study published today on bmj.com shows. A team of international researchers studied data involving 1350 women from 24 developed and developing countries...

Women ages 21 to 65 should have a Pap smear every three years, according to new guidelines from the United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF). Based on the evidence, women between the ages of 30 and 65 can safely extend the screening interval to once every five years if they undergo the humanpapillomavirus (HPV) test at the same time as the Pap. The guideline is being published early online in Annals of Internal Medicine. The USPSTF recommends against screening for cervical...

Colposcopy
2013-01-18 11:34:29

The Colposcopy is a preventive procedure to identify a possible abnormal cells or tissue on the cervix, vagina and vulva. By illuminating and magnifying the area with a coloscope during the examination, areas of concern can be identified earlier by the colposcopist. The procedure was developed by a German physician Hans Hinselmann in 1925 with the help of Dr. Helmut Wirths. Cause for the Procedure This examination has multiple candidates. If a patient has been a victim of a sexual...
