N2 - A fluid-based Papanicolaou test has been established to improve sample collection and preparation. This study was the first largescale investigation in Japan to examine the feasibility of using fluid-based Papanicolaou specimens to detect human papillomavirus (HPV) using Hybrid Capture II and polymerase chain reaction (PCR). Three thousand patients who visited Keio University Hospital between October 2000 and February 2001 were enrolled in the study. The results of the fluid-based Papanicolaou tests corresponded well with those of conventional Papanicolaou smears (96.8% concordance). The sensitivities of cervical neoplasia detection using the ...
The objective of this study is to compare the diagnostic efficacy of universal collection medium (UCM) liquid-based cytology (LBC) (Digene Corp., MD) and the conventional Pap smear in a comparative study, using histologic results as the gold standard. This was a cross-sectional study. Conventional Pap smears and UCM LBC specimens, obtained from women in a low socioeconomic outpatient population referred to a tertiary center for gynecologic care, were compared. for the purpose of this study, when cervical specimens were collected for cytology, all women underwent colposcopy and biopsy was done if a cervical abnormality was observed. Cytologic evaluation of UCM LBC and conventional Pap smears were carried out separately, masked to the results of the other method. Agreement beyond chance between the two cytologic methods was ascertained by means of the unweighted K statistic. Sensitivity, specificity, and predictive values with 95% confidence intervals were calculated for both methods. McNemars ...
University of Iowa News Release. April 3, 2003. UI Study On Mildly Abnormal Pap Smears Seeks Participants. Women age 18 and older who have not gone through menopause are invited to participate in a University of Iowa Health Care study on mildly abnormal pap smears. The study will investigate the safety of a drug as a potential treatment for cervical dysplasia, which is a precancerous condition of the cervix (the entry to the birth canal).. Eligible participants must have been diagnosed with a mildly abnormal pap smear. In addition, they must not be pregnant or lactating and must be using birth control pills or Depo-Provera.. Participation includes eight visits to UI Hospitals and Clinics over a two-to three-month period. The initial screening visit involves routine blood testing, a pelvic examination (pap smear) and a physical examination. At the second visit, participants will be assigned to receive either the medication or a placebo (inactive substance). Visits two through seven will occur ...
Born in 1883 in Kyme, Greece Dr. George Papanicolaou attended school in Greece and at the age of 21 obtained the Doctor of Medicine degree from the University of Athens. In an effort to further his studies, he went to Germany to study the philosophy of biologic sciences. After a brief period of studying with August Weisman, Papanicolaou went to Munich. There he earned his PhD degree in Zoolgy. He then returned to Greece where he met Andromachque Mavroyeni, later known as Mary Papanicolaou or Mrs. Pap. She became his lifelong companion and a great source of support for him.. Dr. and Mrs. Papanicolaou then went to France where Dr. Pap worked as a physiologist. From there, just before the outbreak of the Balkan War, the couple returned to Greece. While serving in the Greek Army, Dr. Pap met United States volunteers who told him of the opportunities in the United States. Dr. Papanicolaou obtained a position as assistant in the Department of Anatomy at New Yorks Cornell Medical School in 1913. His ...
Management of patients whose Papanicolaou smears show atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ASCUS) is a complex challenge for the family physician. It is critical that patients with the ASCUS smear be properly evaluated and triaged, as the ASCUS smear may be a manifestation of high-grade disease in 20% or more of cases. Several options for triage exist. Colposcopy is considered by many the option of choice. However, alternative options include cervicography, speculoscopy, and human papillomavirus subtyping. For proper management of the patient with the ASCUS smear, the clinician must consider the patients Pap test history, risk factors for cervical cancer, and the cytopathologists interpretation/recommendation. ...

Papanicolaou smear is a simple screening test that can detect the disease at an early and curable stage. Although indicated to every adult woman, Pap smear screening covers less than 70% of Brazilian women. This study aimed to evaluate if private health care insurance coverage was associated with Papanicolaou smear screening. We analyzed data from 6,299 women aged 35 years or older, resident in Rio de Janeiro state, who had been interviewed in the National Household Sample Survey (PNAD) in 2003. In order to minimize the occurrence of biases, we utilized the propensity score matching method, considering all information from ...

A PAP smear is required on most patients after age 21. The purpose of a PAP smear is to determine your risk for cervical cancer. The cause of cervical cancer is HPV (Human Papilloma Virus) which is sexually transmitted. This test is obtained along with the PAP smear on all patients over 30. The HPV test helps us determine your level of cervical cancer risk.. If we call to inform you of the presence of HPV and the PAP smears cells are normal, do not be alarmed.. HPV is very common. Approximately 70% of sexually active persons get HPV at some time in their life although most are never aware of it. Some types of HPV cause genital warts, while others can cause cervical cancer. The vaccine Gardisil® is offered to our patients between the ages of 13 and 29 to help protect against acquiring the virus. The vast majority of patients with HPV do not develop cancer or even pre-cancer because the bodys immune system clears the HPV infection. HPV can lead to cancer or, more commonly, pre-cancer in patients ...

Cervical cancer is a disease that annually claims the lives of over a quarter of a million women. A substantial number of these deaths could be prevented if population wide cancer screening, based on the Papanicolaou test, were globally available. The Papanicolaou test involves a visual review of cellular material obtained from the uterine cervix. While being relatively inexpensive from a material standpoint, the test requires highly trained cytology specialists to conduct the analysis. There is a great shortage of such specialists in developing countries, causing these to be grossly overrepresented in the mortality statistics. For the last 60 years, numerous attempts at constructing an automated system, able to perform the screening, have been made. Unfortunately, a cost-effective, automated system has yet to be produced.. In this thesis, a set of methods, aimed to be used in the development of an automated screening system, are presented. These have been produced as part of an international ...
JENA, GERMANY - 29 Oct, 2015 - At the medical trade fair MEDICA 2015 the biotech company oncgnostics GmbH (www.oncgnostics.com) presents its new product GynTect - a test for the early and reliable detection of cervical cancer - to international experts. Between 16th and 19th of November 2015 the epigenetic diagnostics specialists explain the advantages of this innovative test, compared to existing methods in cervical cancer diagnostics, such as an improved cancer risk estimation and prevention of unnecessary surgeries, at the worlds largest medical trade fair (www.medica.com).. With GynTect oncgnostics has developed a molecular test, which can clarify early and reliable if a patient with abnormal Pap smear result and/or an infection with a cancer-causing human Papillomavirus (HPV) in fact develops or has a cervical carcinoma requiring treatment.. The diagnostic test detects epigenetic changes in the cancer cells present in a cervical smear of a patient. These epigenetic changes occur in ...
Cervical cancer is the most common female genital tract carcinoma worldwide. It is increasingly becoming the leading carcinoma seen among women in the developing world. The aim of our study was to showcase the effect of educational intervention on the knowledge of cervical cancer and subsequently the uptake of Pap smear test amongst market women in Niger state, Nigeria. The state has a rich network of markets in all the local government areas because of the fishing activities, bountiful agricultural produce yearly and its situation to the North of the national capital, Abuja. This was a quasi-experimental study conducted in two groups with pre and post intervention data collection. Sample size was determined based on a previous similar study done in Nigeria. Multi stage sampling technique was used for recruiting the study participants. SPSS statistical software was used for data entry, editing and analysis. Respondents knowledge of cervical cancer were comparable at pre-intervention but were ...

In a case-control study among 2064 South African women to investigate the risk of clinically invasive cancer of the cervix, we found a marked reduction in the risk of cervical cancer among women who gave a history of ever having undergone even a single Pap smear, and a statistically significant decline in the HPV positivity rate correlated with the lifetime number of Pap smears received. HPV infections and their associated low-grade lesions commonly regress, indicating that most often there is an effective host immune response against HPV infection. We hypothesized that act of performing a Pap smear is associated with inflammatory responses at the site of trauma, the cervix, and that this inflammatory signalling may be an immunological factor initiating these productive anti-HPV responses. In the present study, a randomized controlled trial, we enrolled 80 healthy young women to investigate the impact of performing a Pap smear on cervical inflammation. Forty one women, in the intervention group,
Dr. Tali Bogler Following the introduction of Cancer Care Ontarios 2012 cervical cancer screening guidelines, female patients were 50 per cent less likely to undergo screening for sexually transmitted infections, a new St. Michaels study has found.. The research, published today in Canadian Family Physician, tracked patient charts across five primary care sites at St. Michaels Hospital in the year before the guidelines changed and the year after.. The study found that the guidelines not only reduced Pap smear tests by 60 per cent (from 42 to 17 per cent), but also resulted in decreased screening rates for gonorrhea and chlamydia - the two most common STIs in women aged 15 to 24 - from 40 to 20 per cent.. "Historically, we know that Pap tests and STI screening are linked because theyre often performed at the same time," said Dr. Tali Bogler, a family physician at St. Michaels and the studys lead researcher. "Now that the Ontario guidelines delay cervical cancer screening until age 21 and ...
The PAP smear test has helped save a number of lives.

I received my first abnormal pap smear results at the beginning of my pregnancy... the results came back ascus which normally leads to further testing for HPV. For some reason the HPV portion of the test didnt go through. In my previous pregnancy I was tested for HPV and it came back negative. However, my doctor says that HPV can lie dormant in your system because your immune system takes care of it. My doctor said she wouldnt treat it during pregnancy anyways and it would be best to do further testing after the baby has been born. Ive been pretty panicked about it lately and insisted I get tested last week. I still havent gotten the results. Are any of you going through this? How are you feeling about it? Im in a monogamous marriage and dont have a promiscuous background. Ive learned through research that doesnt really matter because a large majority of women have HPV but just dont know because of what my doctor was talking about- their immune system just takes care of it.

A pap smear is an important part of your overall healthcare. In detects changes in the cells of the cervix, and helps to find them early so they can be treated before they become serious. The cervix is covered with a thin layer of cells, which periodically shed and become abnormal. Abnormal cells go through several stages of change before cervical cancer appears, and usually happen over a number of years. There is a vaccine available to help protect against a virus that can lead to abnormal and pre-cancerous cervical, vaginal and vulvar lesions. However, the vaccination may not fully protect everyone who gets the vaccine, and should not substitute for routine cervical cancer screening.. Depending on your medical history, your doctor may advise you to have a Pap test done more often. Your risk of developing cervical changes may be higher if you; (1) have had more than one sexual partner or a male partner who has had more than one partner, (2) had intercourse for the first time at an early age, ...

Changes in cells vary, but the most significant changes are called dysplasia, which is an abnormal change in the size and shape of cells. Although not cancer, dysplasia may develop into a cancerous state over a lengthy but unpredictable period of time if left untreated. Dysplasia in endometrial cells of the cervix is classified as cervical intraepithelial neoplasia, which has mild to severe stages denoted by CIN-1 (mild), CIN-2 (moderate), and CIN-3 (severe). Additionally, other minor abnormal changes in these cells are also observed, but do not necessarily indicate a precancerous nature.. Human papillomavirus (HPV) causes CIN-1; 4 in 5 cases of HPV will not need treatment within 12 months. Cases of CIN-2 and CIN-3 are too dangerous to leave untreated and it is usually recommended by a professional to have the cells removed. ...
