This study was performed to demonstrate that RNA isolated from cell lines and cervical cytology specimens stored in SurePath preservative fluid would be functional in real-time RT-PCR assays. RNA was isolated from cervical cell lines or cytology samples stored in SurePath preservative at room temperature for 2-5 weeks using five commercially available RNA(More)
BACKGROUND Screening efforts using the Papanicolaou test have significantly reduced the incidence of cervical cancer in countries with an active screening program. However, this test does not accurately identify all abnormal cases. Significant effort has been expended investigating molecular markers that could improve the sensitivity and specificity of(More)
BACKGROUND The Papanicolaou (Pap) screen has been successful in reducing cervical cancer; but exhibits low sensitivity when detecting cervical dysplasia. Use of molecular biomarkers in Pap tests may improve diagnostic accuracy. DESIGN Monoclonal antibodies to Minichromosome Maintenance Protein 2 (MCM2) and DNA Topoisomerase II α (TOP2A) were selected for(More)
