Knowledge of differences in human papillomavirus (HPV)-type prevalence between high-grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (HG-CIN) and invasive cervical cancer (ICC) is crucial for understanding the natural history of HPV-infected cervical lesions and the potential impact of HPV vaccination on cervical cancer prevention. More than 6,000 women diagnosed(More)
BACKGROUND The control arm of PATRICIA (PApilloma TRIal against Cancer In young Adults, NCT00122681) was used to investigate the risk of progression from cervical HPV infection to cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) or clearance of infection, and associated determinants. METHODS AND FINDINGS Women aged 15-25 years were enrolled. A 6-month persistent(More)
BACKGROUND Most cervical cancers are attributable to infection with one of fourteen types of human papillomavirus (HPV), but HPV types differ in oncogenic potential. Characterisation of cancers associated with specific HPV types is required to predict the likely impact of current prophylactic vaccines and the potential benefits of vaccine formulations(More)
OBJECTIVE This retrospective registry-based study aimed to assess the human papillomavirus (HPV)-type distribution in primary and recurrent high-grade cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN2+), and to discriminate pre-existing from newly-acquired infections. METHODS Cervical specimens from 58 women (median age (Q1-Q3): 37.6 (31.7-44.9)) who underwent(More)
To conduct a thorough QT study of levocetirizine, a non-sedating antihistamine, in accordance with International Conference on Harmonisation (ICH) E14 guidance. The study was designed as a single-dose, placebo and positive-controlled, four-way crossover, randomised trial in which 52 healthy male and female subjects participated. Levocetirizine (5 and 30 mg)(More)
BACKGROUND Nonantiarrhythmic drugs may have the potential to prolong the QT interval, leading to potentially fatal ventricular tachycardias, including torsades de pointes. OBJECTIVE This study evaluated the potential of the newer-generation, multiple-action antiepileptic drug levetiracetam, which binds to the synaptic vesicle protein SV2A, to affect(More)
BACKGROUND We examined risk of newly detected human papillomavirus (HPV) infection and cervical abnormalities in relation to HPV type 16/18 antibody levels at enrollment in PATRICIA (Papilloma Trial Against Cancer in Young Adults; NCT00122681). METHODS Using Poisson regression, we compared risk of newly detected infection and cervical abnormalities(More)
BACKGROUND Postlicensure surveillance studies suggest a small temporal increase in the risk for intussusception with both currently available rotavirus vaccines (RV1; Rotarix, GSK and RV5; RotaTeq, Merck & Co., Inc.). This meta-analysis was undertaken to provide a single overall estimate of the relative risk of intussusception during the 7-day period after(More)
BACKGROUND Schizophrenia is associated with disproportionately high costs, mainly due to hospitalization rates. This study assessed healthcare resource use in patients with schizophrenia and schizoaffective disorder during treatment with long-acting risperidone. METHODS Patients (n = 397 [inpatients, 24%; outpatients, 76%]) receiving stable doses of an(More)
The Risperidone Olanzapine Drug Outcomes studies in Schizophrenia (RODOS) programme was an international series of naturalistic studies designed to evaluate drug use patterns and outcomes. RODOS consisted of retrospective chart reviews performed in patients who had been admitted to hospital and treated in 61 centres in nine countries. The analysed(More)
