Many members of the human kallikrein gene family were found to be differentially expressed in various malignancies and some are useful cancer diagnostic/prognostic markers. KLK9 is a newly discovered human kallikrein gene that is expressed in several tissues including thymus, testis, spinal cord, salivary gland, ovary, and skin. Like other kallikreins, the(More)
After an organised cervical screening programme was introduced in Turin in 1992, the age-adjusted cervical cancer incidence ratio in 1992-98 was 0.81 (95% confidence interval (CI) 0.59-1.09) for invited vs not invited women and 0.25 (95% CI 0.13-0.50) for attenders vs non attenders. An organised screening programme can further reduce cervical cancer(More)
Electron spin resonance (ESR) studies at -130 degrees have been made on frozen samples of normal human cervix and uterus and on frozen samples of various pathological conditions of the cervix and uterus including fibroleiomyoma and carcinoma. Fifty-five samples of normal cervix and endometrium, 40 samples of nonmalignant disturbances, 15 benign tumor(More)
BACKGROUND Human papillomavirus (HPV)-based screening needs triage. In most randomized controlled trials (RCTs) on HPV testing with cytological triage, cytology interpretation has been blind to HPV status. METHODS Women age 25 to 60 years enrolled in the New Technology in Cervical Cancer (NTCC) RCT comparing HPV testing with cytology were referred to(More)
The reproducibility of cervical histology diagnoses is critical for efficient screening and to evaluate the effectiveness of new technologies. The vast majority of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) diagnoses reported in the New Technologies for Cervical Cancer study were blindly reviewed by 2 independent pathologists. Only H&E-stained slides were(More)
OBJECTIVES This study aimed to compare the interobserver Cohen κ on H&E staining and on H&E plus p16(INK4a) staining of all cervical biopsy specimens in a population-based screening program. METHODS All the colposcopy-guided biopsies generated by the routine screening of 23,258 women aged 25 to 64 years were stained with H&E and H&E plus p16. Biopsy(More)
