Cervix Uteri: The neck portion of the UTERUS between the lower isthmus and the VAGINA forming the cervical canal.Uterine Cervical Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of the UTERINE CERVIX.Uterus: The hollow thick-walled muscular organ in the female PELVIS. It consists of the fundus (the body) which is the site of EMBRYO IMPLANTATION and FETAL DEVELOPMENT. Beyond the isthmus at the perineal end of fundus, is CERVIX UTERI (the neck) opening into VAGINA. Beyond the isthmi at the upper abdominal end of fundus, are the FALLOPIAN TUBES.Uterine Cervical Incompetence: Incompetent UTERINE CERVIX is usually diagnosed in the second trimester of PREGNANCY. It is characterized by passive painless cervical dilation in the absence of UTERINE CONTRACTION; BLEEDING; INFECTION; and sometimes with the amniotic sac (AMNIOTIC MEMBRANE) bulging through the partially dilated cervix. Left untreated, this condition may lead to premature pregnancy loss, such as HABITUAL ABORTION.Uterine Cervical Dysplasia: Abnormal development of immature squamous EPITHELIAL CELLS of the UTERINE CERVIX, a term used to describe premalignant cytological changes in the cervical EPITHELIUM. These atypical cells do not penetrate the epithelial BASEMENT MEMBRANE.Vaginal Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of the VAGINA.Neoplasms: New abnormal growth of tissue. Malignant neoplasms show a greater degree of anaplasia and have the properties of invasion and metastasis, compared to benign neoplasms.Vaginal Smears: Collection of pooled secretions of the posterior vaginal fornix for cytologic examination.Carcinoma, Squamous Cell: A carcinoma derived from stratified SQUAMOUS EPITHELIAL CELLS. It may also occur in sites where glandular or columnar epithelium is normally present. (From Stedman, 25th ed)Incidence: The number of new cases of a given disease during a given period in a specified population. It also is used for the rate at which new events occur in a defined population. It is differentiated from PREVALENCE, which refers to all cases, new or old, in the population at a given time.Registries: The systems and processes involved in the establishment, support, management, and operation of registers, e.g., disease registers.Adenocarcinoma: A malignant epithelial tumor with a glandular organization.Cervical Ripening: A change in the CERVIX UTERI with respect to its readiness to relax. The cervix normally becomes softer, more flexible, more distensible, and shorter in the final weeks of PREGNANCY. These cervical changes can also be chemically induced (LABOR, INDUCED).Pregnancy: The status during which female mammals carry their developing young (EMBRYOS or FETUSES) in utero before birth, beginning from FERTILIZATION to BIRTH.Uterine Contraction: Contraction of the UTERINE MUSCLE.Pregnancy, Animal: The process of bearing developing young (EMBRYOS or FETUSES) in utero in non-human mammals, beginning from FERTILIZATION to BIRTH.Myometrium: The smooth muscle coat of the uterus, which forms the main mass of the organ.Uterine Neoplasms: Tumors or cancer of the UTERUS.Cervix Mucus: A slightly alkaline secretion of the endocervical glands. The consistency and amount are dependent on the physiological hormone changes in the menstrual cycle. It contains the glycoprotein mucin, amino acids, sugar, enzymes, and electrolytes, with a water content up to 90%. The mucus is a useful protection against the ascent of bacteria and sperm into the uterus. (From Dictionary of Obstetrics and Gynecology, 1988)Hysterectomy: Excision of the uterus.Embryo Implantation: Endometrial implantation of EMBRYO, MAMMALIAN at the BLASTOCYST stage.Uterine Diseases: Pathological processes involving any part of the UTERUS.Uterine Cervical Diseases: Pathological processes of the UTERINE CERVIX.Progesterone: The major progestational steroid that is secreted primarily by the CORPUS LUTEUM and the PLACENTA. Progesterone acts on the UTERUS, the MAMMARY GLANDS and the BRAIN. It is required in EMBRYO IMPLANTATION; PREGNANCY maintenance, and the development of mammary tissue for MILK production. Progesterone, converted from PREGNENOLONE, also serves as an intermediate in the biosynthesis of GONADAL STEROID HORMONES and adrenal CORTICOSTEROIDS.Endometrium: The mucous membrane lining of the uterine cavity that is hormonally responsive during the MENSTRUAL CYCLE and PREGNANCY. The endometrium undergoes cyclic changes that characterize MENSTRUATION. After successful FERTILIZATION, it serves to sustain the developing embryo.Labor, Obstetric: The repetitive uterine contraction during childbirth which is associated with the progressive dilation of the uterine cervix (CERVIX UTERI). Successful labor results in the expulsion of the FETUS and PLACENTA. Obstetric labor can be spontaneous or induced (LABOR, INDUCED).Genitalia, Female: The female reproductive organs. The external organs include the VULVA; BARTHOLIN'S GLANDS; and CLITORIS. The internal organs include the VAGINA; UTERUS; OVARY; and FALLOPIAN TUBES.Vagina: The genital canal in the female, extending from the UTERUS to the VULVA. (Stedman, 25th ed)Estradiol: The 17-beta-isomer of estradiol, an aromatized C18 steroid with hydroxyl group at 3-beta- and 17-beta-position. Estradiol-17-beta is the most potent form of mammalian estrogenic steroids.Ovariectomy: The surgical removal of one or both ovaries.Decidua: The hormone-responsive glandular layer of ENDOMETRIUM that sloughs off at each menstrual flow (decidua menstrualis) or at the termination of pregnancy. During pregnancy, the thickest part of the decidua forms the maternal portion of the PLACENTA, thus named decidua placentalis. The thin portion of the decidua covering the rest of the embryo is the decidua capsularis.Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia: A malignancy arising in uterine cervical epithelium and confined thereto, representing a continuum of histological changes ranging from well-differentiated CIN 1 (formerly, mild dysplasia) to severe dysplasia/carcinoma in situ, CIN 3. The lesion arises at the squamocolumnar cell junction at the transformation zone of the endocervical canal, with a variable tendency to develop invasive epidermoid carcinoma, a tendency that is enhanced by concomitant human papillomaviral infection. (Segen, Dictionary of Modern Medicine, 1992)Parturition: The process of giving birth to one or more offspring.Pseudopregnancy: An acyclic state that resembles PREGNANCY in that there is no ovarian cycle, ESTROUS CYCLE, or MENSTRUAL CYCLE. Unlike pregnancy, there is no EMBRYO IMPLANTATION. Pseudopregnancy can be experimentally induced to form DECIDUOMA in the UTERUS.Estrus: The period in the ESTROUS CYCLE associated with maximum sexual receptivity and fertility in non-primate female mammals.Relaxin: A water-soluble polypeptide (molecular weight approximately 8,000) extractable from the corpus luteum of pregnancy. It produces relaxation of the pubic symphysis and dilation of the uterine cervix in certain animal species. Its role in the human pregnant female is uncertain. (Dorland, 28th ed)Papillomaviridae: A family of small, non-enveloped DNA viruses infecting birds and most mammals, especially humans. They are grouped into multiple genera, but the viruses are highly host-species specific and tissue-restricted. They are commonly divided into hundreds of papillomavirus "types", each with specific gene function and gene control regions, despite sequence homology. Human papillomaviruses are found in the genera ALPHAPAPILLOMAVIRUS; BETAPAPILLOMAVIRUS; GAMMAPAPILLOMAVIRUS; and MUPAPILLOMAVIRUS.Mullerian Ducts: A pair of ducts near the WOLFFIAN DUCTS in a developing embryo. In the male embryo, they degenerate with the appearance of testicular ANTI-MULLERIAN HORMONE. In the absence of anti-mullerian hormone, mullerian ducts give rise to the female reproductive tract, including the OVIDUCTS; UTERUS; CERVIX; and VAGINA.Fallopian Tubes: A pair of highly specialized muscular canals extending from the UTERUS to its corresponding OVARY. They provide the means for OVUM collection, and the site for the final maturation of gametes and FERTILIZATION. The fallopian tube consists of an interstitium, an isthmus, an ampulla, an infundibulum, and fimbriae. Its wall consists of three histologic layers: serous, muscular, and an internal mucosal layer lined with both ciliated and secretory cells.Immunohistochemistry: Histochemical localization of immunoreactive substances using labeled antibodies as reagents.Oxytocin: A nonapeptide hormone released from the neurohypophysis (PITUITARY GLAND, POSTERIOR). It differs from VASOPRESSIN by two amino acids at residues 3 and 8. Oxytocin acts on SMOOTH MUSCLE CELLS, such as causing UTERINE CONTRACTIONS and MILK EJECTION.Estrous Cycle: The period of cyclic physiological and behavior changes in non-primate female mammals that exhibit ESTRUS. The estrous cycle generally consists of 4 or 5 distinct periods corresponding to the endocrine status (PROESTRUS; ESTRUS; METESTRUS; DIESTRUS; and ANESTRUS).Papillomavirus Infections: Neoplasms of the skin and mucous membranes caused by papillomaviruses. They are usually benign but some have a high risk for malignant progression.Sperm Transport: Passive or active movement of SPERMATOZOA from the testicular SEMINIFEROUS TUBULES through the male reproductive tract as well as within the female reproductive tract.Brachytherapy: A collective term for interstitial, intracavity, and surface radiotherapy.

Graphic monitoring of labour. (1/2687)

The parturograph is a composite record designed for the monitoring of fetal and maternal well-being and the progress of labour. It permits the early recognition of abnormalities and pinpoints the patients who would benefit most from intervention. Observations are made from the time of admission of the mother to the caseroom and recorded graphically. Factors assessed include fetal heart rate, maternal vital signs and urine, cervical dilatation, descent of the presenting fetal part, and frequency, duration and intensity of uterine contractions.  (+info)

Hybrid capture II, a new sensitive test for human papillomavirus detection. Comparison with hybrid capture I and PCR results in cervical lesions. (2/2687)

AIM: To test a new assay for the detection of human papillomavirus (HPV) DNA, hybrid capture II (HC II), compared with the previous commercialized hybrid capture I (HC I) and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) results on cervical scrapes from fresh cone excision biopsy samples. METHODS: The three methods were used on cervical scrapes from 42 fresh cone excision biopsy samples. There were nine metaplastic and inflammatory lesions, five low grade lesions, and 28 high grade lesions. PCR was performed using the general primers GP5+/GP6+. The viral load of high risk HPV DNA was estimated by the ratio of relative light units to positive control values in the samples. RESULTS: The sensitivity of HC I for the detection of high grade lesions was 71.4%, while it was 92.8% for HC II and 96.4% for the PCR. Considering only the absence of detectable cervical in situ neoplasia, the specificity was 88.9% for HC I, 66.7% for HC II, and 66.7% for PCR. With HC II, for a ratio of cervical sample to normal control of > 200, the sensitivity for the detection of high grade lesion was only 34.6% with a specificity of 66.7%. CONCLUSIONS: HPV detection with the HC II assay is more sensitive than the previous HC I and represents a more convenient and easier test than PCR for routine use. Nevertheless the viral load estimated with this test cannot be a reliable predictive indicator of high grade lesions.  (+info)

Immunohistochemical expression of mdm2 and p21WAF1 in invasive cervical cancer: correlation with p53 protein and high risk HPV infection. (3/2687)

AIM: To investigate the immunocytochemical staining pattern of mdm2 and p21WAF1 proteins in invasive cervical cancer and to determine its relation with the expression of p53 and with the high risk HPV infection. METHODS: Immunocytochemistry for p53, mdm2, and p21WAF1 was performed in 31 paraffin embedded sections of invasive cervical cancer. The results were assessed by image analysis, evaluating for each protein the optical density of the immunostained area, scored as percentage of the total nuclear area. The presence of high risk human papillomavirus (HPV) infection was detected by using the polymerase chain reaction. RESULTS: Immunostaining for both mdm2 and p21WAF1 was correlated with p53 expression; however, the correlation between p53 and mdm2 (R = 0.49; p < 0.01) was more significant than between p53 and p21WAF1 (R = 0.31; p < 0.05); the less stringent correlation between p53 and p21WAF1 might reflect the p53 independent mechanisms of p21WAF1 induction. Similar average levels of p53, mdm2, and p21WAF1 immunostaining were found in the presence or absence of high risk HPV-DNA, without significant differences between the two groups. CONCLUSIONS: These data suggest that mdm2 and p21WAF1 proteins are expressed in invasive cervical cancer and that their immunocytochemical staining pattern is not abrogated by the presence of high risk HPV genomic sequences.  (+info)

Vitamin D regulates human ectocervical epithelial cell proliferation and insulin-like growth factor-binding protein-3 level. (4/2687)

The differentiation status of the cervical epithelial cell has an important influence on responsiveness to estrogens and progestins. Several agents, including glucocorticoids and retinoids, are known to influence cervical cell differentiation. However, the effects of vitamin D have not been examined. Vitamin D is known to regulate cell proliferation and gene expression in a variety of epithelial cells. In the present study we investigated the ability of 1alpha25-dihydroxyvitamin D3 (D3) to regulate cell proliferation and expression of insulin-like growth factor-binding protein-3 (IGFBP-3) in human ectocervical epithelial cells. ECE16-1, a non-tumorigenic cervical cell line, was growth inhibited by D3 with maximal inhibition at 1000 nM. IGFBP-3 levels increased in parallel with the growth inhibition. IGFBP-3 levels were half-maximally increased at approximately 10-100 nM and maximally increased (10- to 30-fold) at 1000 nM D3. These studies show that vitamin D regulates cervical epithelial cell gene regulation and cell proliferation and that IGFBP-3 may be an in vivo marker of vitamin D action in the cervix.  (+info)

Mechanism of action and clinical effects of antiprogestins on the non-pregnant uterus. (5/2687)

Considerable progress has been made in elucidating the mechanism of action of antiprogestins. The biological response to a progesterone antagonist depends on many factors. The usual effect is that of an antagonist, but progesterone agnostic or even antioestrogenic or oestrogenic effects have also been observed. The present review focuses on the clinical applications of antiprogestins in the non-pregnant uterus. Whereas high doses of antiprogestins block ovulation, low doses impair endometrial development without affecting ovulation, hormonal levels or bleeding patterns Indeed, the endometrium is the tissue which is the most sensitive to antiprogestins. The effect of antiprogestins is to produce a delay in endometrial maturation and to postpone the appearance of the implantation window. This concept of 'endometrial contraception' requires further testing in humans, although the principle has been proven in monkeys. In contrast to the low doses of mifepristone which delay endometrial maturation, a minimum dose of 50 mg is required to produce endometrial bleeding. Late luteal phase antiprogestin administration does not disturb ovulation, hormonal levels or bleeding patterns. This has clinical application, and mifepristone has been used together with prostaglandins in women with delayed menses to successfully prevent implantation. Mifepristone has also been shown to be an effective post-coital agent. However, when used on a regular basis once monthly at the end of the cycle as a potential contraceptive, the results are disappointing. Because of their antiproliferative and anti-oestrogenic effects on the endometrium, antiprogestins are also used in the treatment of oestrogen-dependent conditions such as endometriosis and fibromyomas. In humans, chronic administration of high doses of antiprogestins has on rare occasions been associated with endometrial hyperplasia, presumably a consequence of unopposed oestrogen activity. This does not occur with low doses (1 mg daily for 5 months).  (+info)

Sonographic evidence for the involvement of the utero-ovarian counter-current system in the ovarian control of directed uterine sperm transport. (6/2687)

Sperm transport from the cervix into the tube is an important uterine function within the process of reproduction. This function is exerted by uterine peristalsis and is controlled by the dominant ovarian structure via a cascade of endocrine events. The uterine peristaltic activity involves only the stratum subvasculare of the myometrium, which exhibits a predominantly circular arrangement of muscular fibres that separate at the fundal level into the fibres of the cornua and continue into the circular muscles of the respective tubes. Since spermatozoa are transported preferentially into the tube ipsilateral to the dominant follicle, this asymmetric uterine function may be controlled by the ovary via direct effects utilizing the utero-ovarian counter-current system, in addition to the systemic circulation. To test this possibility the sonographic characteristics of the uterine vascular bed were studied during different phases of the menstrual cycle. Vaginal sonography with the measurement of Doppler flow characteristics of both uterine arteries and of the arterial anastomoses of the uterine and ovarian arteries (junctional vessels) in the cornual region of both sides of the uterus during the menstrual phase of regular-cycling women demonstrated significant lower resistance indices of the junctional vessels ipsilateral to the side of the dominant ovarian structure as compared with the corresponding arteries contralaterally. By the use of the perfusion mode technique, it could be observed that vascular perfusion of the fundal myometrium was significantly increased ipsilateral to the dominant follicle during the late follicular phase of the cycle. These results show that the endocrine control of the dominant ovarian structure over uterine function is not only exerted via the systemic circulation but also directly, most probably utilizing the utero-ovarian counter-current system.  (+info)

Control and assessment of the uterus and cervix during pregnancy and labour. (7/2687)

Preterm labour and resultant preterm birth are the most important problems in perinatology. Countless efforts have failed to establish a single effective treatment of preterm labour, partly because the mechanisms regulating the uterus and cervix during pregnancy are not well understood. New knowledge is needed to inhibit early progression of labour (uterine contractility and cervical ripening), and adequate quantitative tools to evaluate the uterus and cervix during pregnancy are lacking. In this review, we outline studies showing that the uterus (myometrium) and cervix pass through a conditioning step in preparation for labour. This step is not easily identifiable with present methods to assess the uterus or cervix. In the uterus, this seemingly irreversible step consists of changes in the electrical properties to make muscle more excitable and responsive to produce forceful contractions. In the cervix, the step consists of softening of the connective tissue components. Progesterone appears to have a dominant role in controlling both the uterus and cervix, as antiprogestins induce early, preterm conditioning leading to preterm labour. Apparently, nitric oxide (NO) also controls conditioning of the uterus and cervix. In the uterus, NO, in concert with progesterone, inhibits uterine contractility. At term, NO production by the uterus and placenta are decreased and allow labour to progress. In contrast, NO in the cervix increases at the end of pregnancy and it may be the final pathway for stimulating cervical ripening by activation of metalloenzymes. The progress of labour can be assessed non-invasively using electromyographic (EMG) signals from the uterus (the driving force for contractility) recorded from the abdominal surface. Uterine EMG bursts detected in this manner characterize uterine contractile events during human and animal pregnancy. A low uterine EMG activity, measured transabdominally throughout most of pregnancy, rises dramatically during labour. EMG activity also increases substantially during preterm labour in humans and rats. This method may be used one day to predict impending preterm labour and identify control steps and treatments. A quantitative method also assesses the cervix, using an optical device which measures collagen fluorescence in the cervix. The collascope estimates cervical collagen content from a fluorescent signal generated when collagen cross-links are illuminated with excitation light of about 340 nm. The system has proved useful in rats and humans at various stages of pregnancy, and indicates that cervical softening occurs progressively in the last one-third of pregnancy. In rats, collascope readings correlate with resistance measurements made in the isolated cervix, which may help to assess cervical function during pregnancy, and indicate control and treatments.  (+info)

Nicotine is concentrated in the cervical mucus of smokers relative to serum levels. In this experiment, the effect of nicotine on cellular proliferation of human ectocervical, endocervical, malignant, and human papillomavirus (HPV) 16 DNA-transformed cervical cell lines was studied. Ectocervical and endocervical cell lines were derived from benign hysterectomy specimens and cultured in keratinocyte growth medium. HPV 16 DNA-transformed cell lines were derived through transfection of ectocervical cells with cloned HPV 16 DNA. HPV-transformed lines and malignant cell lines established from three women with newly diagnosed cervical cancer were maintained in E-media with 5% fetal calf serum. Cells (2500-5000) were cultured in 96-well tissue culture plates with varying concentrations of nicotine (100 to 10 mg/ml) and proliferation was assessed 72 hr later with a semiautomated colorimetric assay. Experiments were performed three times and proliferation of nicotine-exposed cells was compared to ...

Interferonε (IFNε) is a unique type I IFN that has distinct functions from IFNα/β. IFNε is constitutively expressed at mucosal tissues, including the female genital mucosa, and is reported to be modulated by estrogen and seminal plasma. However, its regulation by cytokines, including TNFα, IL-1β, IL-6, IL-8, IL-17, IL-22 and IFNα, which are commonly present in the female genital mucosa, is not well documented in freshly isolated primary cervical cells from tissues. We determined the effect of these cytokines on gene expression of type I IFNs in an immortalized endocervical epithelial cell line (A2EN) and in primary cervical epithelial cells. Several pro-inflammatory cytokines were found to induce IFNε, and TNFα induced the strongest response in both cell types. Pretreatment of cells with the IκB inhibitor, which blocks the NF-κB pathway, suppressed TNFα-mediated IFNε gene induction and promoter activation. Expression of IFNα, IFNβ, and IFNε was differentially regulated in response to
OBJECTIVE To assess adherence to management guidelines based on the terminology used to describe atypical glandular cells (AGC) on cytology reports. MATERIALS AND METHODS We analyzed AGC pathology reports from Hartford Hospital, 2004-2007, and identified cases of AGC with the terminology atypical glandular cells or atypical endocervical cells (AEC). We calculated rates of clinical evaluations based on the terminology used to describe the AGC. Statistical analysis was performed using the χ test. RESULTS Seventy-eight reports contained the terminology AEC and 97 reports contained the terminology AGC. The rate of histologic sampling in women with AEC was lower than in women with AGC (52.6% vs 83.5%; p | .01). Similarly, the rate of comprehensive evaluations was lower (33.3% vs 71.1%; p | .01). Fewer endocervical curettages (47.4% vs 77.3%; p | .01) and fewer endometrial biopsies in women 35 years or older were performed (26.9% vs 69.1%; p | .01) in women with AEC than in women with AGC.

Stromal-interaction molecule 1 (STIM1) is an endoplasmic reticulum Ca2+ storage sensor that promotes cell growth, migration, and angiogenesis in breast and cervical cancers. Here, we report that the microtubule-associated histone deacetylase 6 (HDAC6) differentially regulates activation of STIM1-mediated store-operated Ca2+ entry (SOCE) between cervical cancer cells and normal cervical epithelial cells. Confocal microscopy of living cells indicated that microtubule integrity was necessary for STIM1 trafficking to the plasma membrane and interaction with Orai1, an essential pore subunit of SOCE. Cancer cells overexpressed both STIM1 and Orai1 compared with normal cervical epithelial cells. HDAC6 upregulation in cancer cells was accompanied by hypoacetylated α-tubulin. Tubastatin-A, a specific HDAC6 inhibitor, inhibited STIM1 translocation to plasma membrane and blocked SOCE activation in cancer cells but not normal epithelial cells. Genetic or pharmacologic inhibition of HDAC6 blocked STIM1 ...

Im 21 weeks and for the last few days have noticed an odd pricking sensation in my cervix. Not painful, just a moment or two here and there where it feels like tiny needles poking me there gently. Its my third baby - Im hoping its not my cervix getting ready to give birth already! Has anyone else experienced this?
Regular cervical screening is the best way to identify abnormal changes in the cells of the cervix at an early stage.. Women who are 25-49 years of age are invited for screening every three years. Women who are 50-64 years of age are invited every five years. For women who are 65 years of age or older, only those who havent been screened since they were 50, or those who have had recent abnormal tests, are offered screening.. Make sure that your GP surgery has your up-to-date contact details, so that you continue getting screening invitations.. Its important that you attend your cervical screening tests, even if youve been vaccinated for HPV, because the vaccine doesnt guarantee protection against cervical cancer.. If youve been treated for abnormal cervical cell changes, youll be invited for screening more frequently for several years after treatment. How regularly you need to go will depend on how severe the cell change is.. Although it can identify most abnormal cell changes in the ...
The cervix is the lowest part of the uterus. Its a small passageway connecting the vagina to the uterine cavity, about 1-1.5 inches or 2.5-3.8cm long (1). The

When I was checked last week it seemed like doctor had to check much further back compared to today. Sounds silly, but does your cervix drop when near labor?
The Pap test is a medical screening test to check for the early warning signs of cancer of the uterine cervix. Heres how the doctor will perform it, and what he or she will be looking for.
Okay I went to the doc today and he said that my cervix is starting to open. That is good because last time I was there he said that nothing was happening. Does...
TY - JOUR. T1 - The alpha C protein mediates internalization of group B Streptococcus within human cervical epithelial cells. AU - Bolduc, G. R.. AU - Baron, M. J.. AU - Gravekamp, C.. AU - Lachenauer, C. S.. AU - Madoff, L. C.. PY - 2002/11/1. Y1 - 2002/11/1. N2 - Group B Streptococcus (GBS) is the leading cause of bacterial chorioamnionitis and neonatal pneumonia, sepsis, and meningitis. Deletion of the alpha C protein gene (bca) attenuates the virulence of GBS in an animal model; significant survival differences in the first 24 h of infection suggest a pathogenic role for the alpha C protein early in the infection process. We examined the role of alpha C protein in the association between GBS and mucosal surfaces using a human cervical epithelial cell line, ME180. Fluorescent and confocal microscopy and flow cytometry demonstrated that 9-repeat alpha C protein binds to the surface of ME180 cells. Isolated N-terminal region of this protein also binds to these cells and competitively inhibits ...
A total of 31 cervical biopsy specimens were taken from 29 women attending a genitourinary medicine clinic, nine women (11 biopsy specimens) were known to have Chlamydia trachomatis cervicitis and 20 women were known to be free of chlamydial infection. The specimens were routinely processed to paraffin wax and stained by an anti-Chlamydia immunoperoxidase technique to localise the organisms. Of the 11 positive biopsy specimens three showed positive staining of elementary/reticulate bodies. In one case the surface endocervical cells showed large inclusions which were packed with chlamydial bodies. The diagnosis of chlamydial infection is difficult to make clinically and in routine cytological and histological specimens but immunoperoxidase staining can clearly identify C trachomatis inclusions in cervical biopsy specimens provided infection is severe.. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Human papillomavirus (HPV) types 101 and 103 isolated from cervicovaginal cells lack an E6 open reading frame (ORF) and are related to gamma-papillomaviruses. AU - Chen, Zigui. AU - Schiffman, Mark. AU - Herrero, Rolando. AU - DeSalle, Rob. AU - Burk, Robert D.. PY - 2007/4/10. Y1 - 2007/4/10. N2 - Complete genomes of HPV101 and HPV103 were PCR amplified and cloned from cervicovaginal cells of a 34-year-old female with cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 3 (CIN 3) and a 30-year-old female with a normal Pap test, respectively. HPV101 and HPV103 contain 4 early genes (E7, E1, E2, and E4) and 2 late genes (L2 and L1), but both lack the canonical E6 ORF. Pairwise alignment similarity of the L1 ORF nucleotide sequences of HPV101 and HPV103 indicated that they are at least 30% dissimilar to each other and all known PVs. However, similarities of the other ORFs (E7, E1, E2, and L2) indicated that HPV101 and HPV103 are most related to each other. Phylogenetic analyses revealed that ...
Looking for online definition of ectocervical in the Medical Dictionary? ectocervical explanation free. What is ectocervical? Meaning of ectocervical medical term. What does ectocervical mean?
Collagenase levels are regulated in a cell type-specific manner by a variety of growth factors and cytokines, and increased type IV collagenase activity in tumor cells has been linked to metastatic growth. In this study we compare the effects of epidermal growth factor (EGF) and transforming growth factor β1 (TGFβ1) on gelatinase production in cervical epithelial cell lines. EGF is a strong mitogen for cervical epithelial cells and TGFβ1 suppresses growth. Metalloproteinase zymograms of conditioned medium from normal human ectocervical cells reveal two major bands of metalloproteinase activity at 72 and 92 Kd. In contrast, the level of the 92-Kd activity is greatly reduced in the human papillomavirus type 16-positive ECE16-1 and CaSki cells. EGF treatment produces minimal changes in metalloproteinase levels. Treatment of CaSki cells with 20 ng/ml of EGF reduces by 30 to 50% the level of both activities. In ECE16-1 cells, EGF decreases the 72-Kd activity by 50% and the 92-Kd activity slightly. ...
HIV-1 infections of women are mainly acquired through female reproductive tract where cervical and vaginal epithelial cells are the first line of defense. Although HIV-1 does not directly infect epithelial cells, HIV-1 obligatorily interacts with and crosses over epithelial layer to infect susceptible target cells, mainly CD4+ T cells, in the lamina propria to initiate an infection. However, the mechanism and ramification of the interaction of HIV-1 and epithelial cells in vaginal transmission of HIV-1 remain to be elucidated. We hypothesized that cervical epithelial cells are not a passive barrier, but actively respond to HIV-1 to change mucosal milieu and facilitate HIV-1 transmission. We tested this hypothesis by studying the responses of cervical epithelial cells to HIV-1 through profiling genome-wide transcription. We found 1) cervical epithelial cells actively respond to HIV-1. Five hundred forty-three transcripts/genes in cervical epithelial cells were significantly altered in expression ...
The length of a pregnant womans cervix may be an important clue to her risk of giving birth prematurely. Ohio State University researchers report in the Feb. 29 New England Journal of Medicine that
You will need to take off your clothes below the waist and drape a paper or cloth covering around your waist. You will then lie on your back on an examination table with your feet raised and supported by footrests. This allows the doctor to examine your external genital area, vagina, and cervix. You may want to wear socks to keep your feet warm while they are in the footrests.. The doctor will insert a speculum into your vagina. The speculum gently spreads apart the vaginal walls, allowing the inside of the vagina and the cervix to be examined.. Your doctor will collect several samples of cells from your cervix using a cotton swab, brush (cytobrush or cervix brush), or a small spatula. Cells are collected from the visible part of the cervix as well as from its opening (endocervical canal). In women who do not have a cervix, cells from the vagina are collected if a Pap test is needed. The cells are smeared on a slide or mixed in a liquid fixative and sent to a lab for examination under a ...

Cervical explant cultures were first developed by Fink et al.44 for the study of epithelium metaplasia in vitro. They consisted of large tissue explants (5 × 5 × 2 mm or 5 × 10 × 3 mm) cultured on a thin slab of agarose-gelled serum-free Eagles Basal Medium on top of a stainless steel supporting grid. This culture method was successfully adapted to the study of HSV-2 and HSV-1 infection in vitro and was shown to support the replication of these two human herpesviruses.45 OBrien et al.46 modified this method for the study of the production of glycoprotein from normal and malignant cervical explants of smaller size (5 mm3) cultured either fully immersed in serum-free culture medium or maintained at the air-liquid interface, supported only by a stainless steel grid mesh. On the basis of glycoprotein production, the authors concluded that the grid technique was superior to the immersion culture. It was this grid technique that was adapted to the study of HIV-1 infection in human cervical ...
Epithelial cells of different tissues or species diverge substantially in their culture requirements. Thus, in vivo-like culture of epithelial cells necessitates optimization of the entire culturing process including transport, isolation, medium composition and culture conditions. In the present study we established a new protocol for a differentiated cell culture system of the porcine cervical epithelium, based on easily accessible slaughterhouse material. The morphology and tested functional markers of our culture system are comparable to the native tissue as shown by histology, immunohistochemistry and alcian blue staining. The use of fibroblast-conditioned medium supported proliferation of cervical epithelial monolayers suggesting that stromal growth factors or cytokines released into the medium are required for cell growth in these epithelia. The supplementation of the conditioned medium with EGF further optimized proliferation and mitochondrial activity of the cervical epithelial cells. ...
Aims and Objectives: To study the geometric uncertainties in the treatment and evaluate the adequacy of the margins employed for planning target volume (PTV) generation in the treatment of focal conformal radiotherapy (CRT) for patients with brain tumors treated with different head support systems. Materials and Methods: The study population included 11 patients with brain tumors who were to be treated with CRT. Contrast-enhanced planning CT scan (5-mm spacing and reconstructed to 2 mm) of brain were performed. Five patients were immobilized using neck support only (NR-only) and six patients had neck support with flexion (NRF), the form of immobilization being decided by the likely beam arrangements to be employed for that particular patient. The data was transferred to the planning system (CadPlan) where three-dimensional conformal radiation therapy was planned. Digitally reconstructed radiographs (DRRs) were created for the orthogonal portals with the fixed field sizes of 10 10 taken at the ...

The females reproductive system includes the cervix, uterus (womb), vulva, ovaries, vagina and fallopian tubes. The cervix has a cylinder shape and is part of the lower uterus which is connected to the vagina. For the purpose of this article, we will look at the glandular cervix and how it relates to cancer. The cervix, also referred to as the uterus neck, has an external surface that will open into the vagina as well as an interior surface that is facing into the uterus. This inner surface is the cervical canal. Now, there are two types of cells covering the cervix: the glandular cells inside the cervical canal and the squamous cells on the outer layer. What is a glandular cervix? How it connects to cancer cells Glandular cells create mucus and develop inside the uterus and cervix opening. Cervical cancer has two main kinds of cancerous cells, the adenocarcinomas… ...
CO- realized viral investigations (HPV DNA detection and genotyping, viral load by Real-time PCR, viral status). Cervical explants were used for cell lines initialization. 68 patients (age 16-60 y o) divided in three category were included in the study group. In CIN1 lesions multiple HPV infections and high HPV levels were noted. By contrast, in CIN3 lesions only single HPV infections with high risk types (16, 18) were observed. In these patients viral loads decreased while the percent of mixed or integrated viral forms increased. ...
In front of the upper part of the cervix lies the bladder, separated from it by cellular connective tissue known as parametrium, which also extends over the sides of the cervix.[3] To the rear, the supravaginal cervix is covered by peritoneum, which runs onto the back of the vaginal wall and then turns upwards and onto the rectum, forming the recto-uterine pouch.[3] The cervix is more tightly connected to surrounding structures than the rest of the uterus.[6]. The cervical canal varies greatly in length and width between women or over the course of a womans life,[2] and it can measure 8 mm (0.3 inch) at its widest diameter in premenopausal adults.[7] It is wider in the middle and narrower at each end. The anterior and posterior walls of the canal each have a vertical fold, from which ridges run diagonally upwards and laterally. These are known as palmate folds, due to their resemblance to a palm leaf. The anterior and posterior ridges are arranged in such a way that they interlock with each ...
The K14E6 mouse strains has been established as a model of papilloma-induced skin cancer (7). In this model, the expression of the HPV16-E6 oncogene was directed to the basal layer of stratified epithelia which includes the skin epidermis, lens, and cervical tissue, among others (7, 31). Although E6 is virtually expressed in all stratified epithelia, it only develops spontaneous dysplasias or tumors in the skin epidermis (not in other tissues such as the cervix; refs. 32, 33), which suggests that tissue-specific factors are critical for mediating the oncogenic potential of E6 (7, 8, 33). In an attempt to explain discrepancies that occur due to tissue type, we recently reported the global gene expression differences in the skin epidermis and cervical tissue in adult K14E6 mice (33). We found that the expression of genes that participate in cell adhesion and Wnt signaling were preferentially altered in the skin epidermis compared with the cervical tissue (33). On the basis of these observations, ...

If the results of cytology detected development processes of cancer cells, it is normally held knife biopsy of the cervix.This procedure is a cutting on the analysis of a small piece of tissue from the suspicious area and using ultrasensitive microscope in the laboratory study of cells in the slice.The biggest problem of this transaction may be incorrectly selected area.It often happens that the development of malignancies at an early stage and affects not the entire surface of the fabric.. In order to determine the specific location from which you want to cut the sample, the surgeon-gynecologist, as a rule, uses not only the conclusion after colposcopy, but also independently conducts sample.Most often, while the walls of the vaginal portion of the cervix is ​​applied iodine-containing solution, which stains the surface.Places weak darkening or lack thereof indicate the presence of disease.This means that it is necessary to take a sample of it.After a piece of fabric is cut, the damaged ...

First, you lay down on a table and they invert it. They place acetic acid (more or less vinegar) into your vagina so it can reach your cervix and then you wait for 5 minutes. I will not lie - it burned! The doctor then shared the good news - no cervical cancer! Yay! The bad news is that he needed to do a biopsy since he could not tell how bad the abnormal cells were. When he took the cervical tissue for the biopsy, I literally felt nothing. Once he finished up, I was able to go to work - lucky me! ...

To perform the procedure a device called a speculum is used to open the vagina and expose the cervix. The doctor cleans and sometimes numbs the cervix (I believe my doctor just cleaned). They clean with a little foam pad looking device and you cant really feel anything but a little pressure. Then the doc inserts a small tube through the cervix and into the uterus. For me, this was easier said then done, and the worst part of the whole thing. Turns out, I have a tough cervix to get through - maybe because Im small, but mainly because I havent had any kids. He tried to feed the tube through - which feels like youre being pinched/stabbed in your nother-regions - several times before deciding to use a dilator, a tool that allows them to slowly make the opening just big enough to then feed the tube through. **At this point, my doctor did something that was not part of the Sonohysterogram. He did what he refers to as a mock transfer. In which he measured the depth and angle of my uterus, two ...
Now what to do with this information! Some brands make cups as small as 4 centimeter (1.6 in) long or as large as almost 6 centimeter (2.4 in) long. Your cup will sit below your cervix when in use. If it is low, you will probably find a shorter cup such as Ladycup, Lunette, Fleurcup, Femmycycle, or Yuuki more comfortable. If you have a low cervix, the cup without the stem should not be too much longer than the distance from your cervix to your vaginal opening (but you have a bit of slack there, because your cervix can be partially in the cup). If it is very high, a longer cup such as Divacup, Naturcup, or Shecup would be better so that it will be easy to reach when you want to remove it, but in this case you can comfortably use most cup lengths ...

Be sure to check the string of your IUD after every period. To do this, insert a finger into your vagina and feel for the cervix, which is at the top of the vagina and feels harder than the rest of your vagina (some women say it feels like the tip of your nose). You should be able to feel the thin, plastic string coming out of the opening of your cervix. It may coil around the cervix, which can make it difficult to find. Call your doctor if you cannot feel the string or the rigid end of the IUD ...

It was decided to attempt to place a balloon catheter in hopes that it would help to dilate my cervix. They gave me some pain meds and started to insert it. The doctor tried for a good 15 minutes to get it in but I just couldnt take the pain. Even though they couldnt leave it in place for more than 5 minutes, it managed to get my cervix to dilate 1-2cm. They then decided that we would start Pitocin in hopes that my body would respond. This was started around midnight. The Pitocin brought my contractions to 1-2 minutes apart but again I would be contracting consistently and then all of a sudden they would just stop for 5 or so minutes. After more pain meds and 7 hours, the doctor checked my cervix again. I was positive that we had made substantial progress but again to my disappointment I had only progressed to 2-3cm. Around 7am on the 22nd it was decided the next nest step was to break my water. For some reason I just didnt want to do this as I really wanted to wait for my MFM to stop in and ...

Symptoms usually do not appear until abnormal cervical cells become cancerous and invade the tissue below the epithelial surface. When this happens, the most common symptom is abnormal bleeding.

If a colposcopy finds abnormal cells in your cervix, treatment to remove these cells may be recommended.. Theres sometimes a risk these cells could become cancerous if left untreated. Removing them means they wont be able to turn into cancer.. The aim of treatment is to remove the abnormal cells while minimising damage to healthy tissue. Usually an area about the size of a fingertip is removed.. This page covers:. When treatment is carried out. Types of treatment. Afterwards. Risks and side effects. ...

The cervix is a female reproductive organ that forms the lower portion of the uterus or womb. The uterus and cervix lie in the pelvis, on top of the vagina, in between the rectum and bladder. The cervix forms the part of the birth canal that opens to the vagina.. The surface layer of the cervix is mostly composed of squamous cells. The squamous cells of the cervix merge with the glandular cells lining the cervical canal of the uterus. The area of merging is called the squamo-columnar junction and the area on the cervix outside of this junction is called the transformation zone. Cervical cancer occurs when cervical cells grow out of control, typically in the transformation zone. When cells grow out of control, they spread and grow throughout the cervix and may invade and destroy neighboring organs or break away and spread through the bloodstream and lymphatic system to other parts of the body.. Doctors who care for women routinely perform pelvic examinations and a Papanicolaou (Pap) smear to ...

Do not collect urethral specimens until at least one hour after urinating. Collection directly from male urethral discharge is desirable. Collect anorectal specimens from the crypts just inside the anal ring; anoscopy useful. Prostatic fluid yields fewer positives than does urethral culture. Endocervix: Swab endocervical canal. Avoid contaminating swab with vaginal secretions. Cultures from the urethra or vagina are indicated from females when endocervical culture is not possible. Urethra: Strip the urethra toward the orifice to express exudate. Use a sterile swab to obtain the specimen. Vagina: Use a speculum, moistened only with warm water, not lubricant. Obtain a specimen from the posterior vaginal vault or from the vaginal orifice if the hymen is intact. Swab samples should be rolled over the surface of the Jembec medium. ...
AIM: To determine the frequency of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) following large loop excision of the transformation zone of the cervix (LLETZ) according to grade and completeness of excision of CIN. METHODS: A retrospective study of 669 patients who had LLETZ biopsies showing CIN 1, 2, or 3. The patients were subdivided according to the grade and completeness of excision of CIN. The follow up period was 1.5 to 3.5 years. Risk of persistent/recurrent CIN was assessed by the frequency of histological diagnosis of CIN during the follow up period. RESULTS: Frequency of persistent/recurrent CIN increased with the grade of CIN reported: 6.7% of patients with CIN 1, 13.4% with CIN 2, and 21.7% with CIN 3 developed persistence or recurrence. The frequency of CIN persistence/recurrence was significantly lower where LLETZ showed complete excision of CIN (8.4%) than where it was incomplete (31.3%) (p , 0.0001) or equivocal (27.8%) (p , 0.0001). CONCLUSIONS: Patients with incomplete or equivocal ...

Objective To investigate the values of colposcopic cervical biopsy,pathology after loop electrosurgical excision procedure(LEEP) and the combined examinations of colposcopic cervical biopsy and LEEP in the early diagnosis of cervical precancerous lesions and cervical cancer.Methods Five hundred and fifty-four patients with abnormal findings in cervical cytology and/or human papillomavirus(HPV) test or with normal findings in these screening tests while having moderate to severe cervical columnar eversion were subject to colposcopic cervical biopsy and LEEP,and the pathological findings were compared before and after LEEP.Results The total coincidence rate of colposcopic cervical biopsy and pathology after LEEP was 49.82%.In patients diagnosed as cervical intraepithelial neoplasia(CIN) Ⅰ by cervical biopsy,14.36% were diagnosed as CINⅡ/Ⅲ after LEEP.In patients diagnosed as CIN Ⅱ/Ⅲ(including carcinoma in situ) by cervical biopsy,3.89% were diagnosed as invasive carcinoma after LEEP.Kappa
Cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 2 or 3 was confirmed by biopsy in 28 women. On the basis of survival analysis, the cumulative incidence of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia at two years was 28 percent among women with a positive test for HPV and 3 percent among those without detectable HPV DNA. The risk was highest among those with HPV type 16 or 18 infection (adjusted relative risk as compared with that in women without HPV infection, 11; 95 percent confidence interval, 4.6 to 26; attributable risk, 52 percent). All 24 cases of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 2 or 3 among HPV-positive women were detected within 24 months after the first positive test for HPV. After adjustment for the presence of HPV infection, the development of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia was also associated with younger age at first intercourse, the presence of serum antibodies to Chlamydia trachomatis, the presence of serum antibodies to cytomegalovirus, and cervical infection with Neisseria ...

RATIONALE: Chemoprevention is the use of certain drugs to keep cancer form forming, growing, or coming back. Vaccines may help the body build an effective immune response against human papillomavirus and may be effective in preventing cervical intraepithelial neoplasia or cervical cancer. It is not yet known whether human papillomavirus vaccine is more effective than hepatitis A vaccine in preventing cervical intraepithelial neoplasia or cervical cancer.. PURPOSE: This randomized phase III trial is studying human papillomavirus vaccine to see how well it works compared to hepatitis A vaccine in preventing cervical intraepithelial neoplasia or cervical cancer in younger healthy participants. ...
INTRODUCTION. The most effective approach to cervical cancer control is early diagnosis and treatment of precursor lesions called cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) and invasive lesions at early stages, with chance of cure in nearly 100%.9. Cervical cancer prevention and control strategies in Brazil have been planned based on distribution of cervical lesions by age and frequency of Pap smears. Declining cervical cancer rates can be attributed to both the "Viva Mulher" Program, which increased detection of CIN, low-grade cervical squamous intraepithelial lesion (LGSIL) and high-grade cervical squamous intraepithelial lesion (HSIL), and the successful treatment referral through the See and Treat program, which was implemented by the Brazilian Ministry of Health in 1997. At the See and Treat program, a woman cytologically and colposcopically diagnosed with LGSIL undergoes loop electrosurgical excision procedure (LEEP).13 LEEP is a relatively safe, low-cost outpatient procedure performed under ...
