Due to the high prevalence of cancer-associated types of human papillomavirus (HPV) and the poorly reproducible histologic classification of low-grade lesions, identifying infected women at highest risk for cancer prior to neoplastic progression remains a challenge. We therefore explored the utility of p16INK4a immunostaining as a potential diagnostic and(More)
The Bcr protein was originally identified because of its fusion to Abl as a consequence of the Philadelphia chromosome translocation found in chronic myelogenous and acute lymphoblastic leukemias. The Bcr moiety is essential for the transforming activity of the Bcr/Abl oncogene. In search of physiologically relevant Bcr and Bcr/Abl-interacting proteins, we(More)
The genomic breakpoints in the t(15;17)(q22;q21), associated with acute promyelocytic leukemia (APL), are known to occur within three different PML breakpoint cluster regions (bcr) on chromosome 15 and within RARA intron 2 on chromosome 17; however, the precise mechanism by which this translocation arises is unclear. To clarify this mechanism, we (i).(More)
The Bcr/Abl fusion protein directly causes chronic myelogenous leukemia and Philadelphia-chromosome positive acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Multiple independent studies have implicated Crkl, a small adapter protein, in transduction of oncogenic signals of Bcr/Abl and Crkl tyrosine-phosphorylation is used as a diagnostic tool for Philadelphia-positive(More)

The quality of cervical histopathology is critical to cervical cancer prevention, cancer treatment, and research programs. On the basis of the histology results further patient management is determined. However, the diagnostic interpretation of histologic hematoxylin-eosin (H&E)-stained slides is affected by substantial rates of discordance among(More)
BACKGROUND Current cervical cancer screening approaches are based on cytology supplemented by human papillomavirus (HPV) testing in some settings. Whereas cytology is laborious and depends on the cytologists' experience, HPV testing has limited specificity when it is used to detect high-grade lesions. A dichotomous test to identify high-grade lesions with(More)
BACKGROUND Intervals longer than recommended are frequently encountered between doses of tick borne encephalitis virus (TBE) vaccines in both residents of and travelers to endemic regions. In clinical practice the management of individuals with lapsed TBE vaccination schedules varies widely and has in common that the underlying immunological evidence is(More)
p16(INK4a), a cell cycle regulation protein, accumulates in abnormal epithelial cells infected with high-risk human papilloma virus (HPV). In immunostaining studies, p16(INK4a) has shown potential as a marker of high grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) and invasive cervical cancer. To evaluate its potential use in cervical cancer screening, we(More)
