OBJECTIVE To determine whether parents would accept Human Papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination for their children and which variables may influence their decision, including knowledge about cervical cancer and HPV. STUDY DESIGN Three hundred and fifty-six parents of children aged 10-12 years were interviewed regarding the acceptance of an HPV vaccine for(More)
The purpose of the study was to investigate whether severe fatigue, possibly leading to overreaching, could be diagnosed at an early stage by a combination of parameters. Seven well-trained male subjects (age [mean +/- SD]: 25.3 +/- 4.7 yr; body mass: 76 +/- 6.6 kg; VO2max: 61.1 +/- 7 increased their training load by doubling their(More)
OBJECTIVES To determine whether young Dutch adults had ever heard of human papillomavirus (HPV) and whether they would accept vaccination, and to assess the factors influencing their decision. STUDY DESIGN Cross-sectional survey. METHODS Six hundred participants aged 18-25 years were recruited from two university departments and one non-university(More)
Large loop excision of the cervical transformation zone (LLETZ) is a well-established treatment for high-grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia. It has even been postulated that LLETZ is responsible for the elimination of the infectious agent, human papillomavirus (HPV), causing the lesion. Most studies on HPV detection after LLETZ have focused on the(More)
Cervical cytological pathology is common. Prevention of cervical cancer by detecting the disease process at an early and pre-malignant stage is practised globally either through population-based screening programmes (PSP) or through non-organised ones. High-grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) detected by cervical cytological screening is(More)
This study assesses human papillomavirus (HPV) detection and genotyping in self-sampled genital smears applied to an indicating FTA elute cartridge (FTA cartridge). The study group consisted of 96 women, divided into two sample sets. All samples were analyzed by the HPV SPF(10)-Line Blot 25. Set 1 consisted of 45 women attending the gynecologist; all(More)
OBJECTIVES Progression and regression of premalignant cervical lesions cannot be predicted using conventional cytomorphological or histomorphological parameters. However, markers such as human papillomavirus (HPV) or makers indicating proliferation, genetic instability and chromosomal aberration may be of predictive value assessing short-term biological(More)
BACKGROUND Chlamydia trachomatis is more prevalent in subfertile women than in the general population and is the leading cause of tubal factor subfertility. As C. trachomatis infections are sexually transmitted, it can be expected that infections with human papillomavirus (HPV) are also more prevalent in this group of women. HPV is a necessary cause for the(More)
Effects of feeding glucose on substrate metabolism during cycling were studied. Trained (60.0 +/- 1.9 mL x kg(-1) x min(-1)) males (N = 5) completed two 75 min, 80% VO(2max) trials: 125 g 13(C)-glucose CHO); 13(C)-glucose tracer, 10 g (C). During warm-up (30 min 30% VO2max) 2 . 2 g 13(C)-glucose was given as bicarbonate pool primer. Breath samples and blood(More)
Early treatment of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) significantly reduces the risk of invasive cancerous progression. Residual and recurrent high-grade CIN should be detected and retreated in an early phase. Therefore, a postsurgery cytologic follow-up protocol was introduced at 3, 6, 9, and 12 months and yearly thereafter for 5 years. The aim of(More)
