BACKGROUND The rate of anal cancer is increasing among both women and men, particularly men who have sex with men. Caused by infection with human papillomavirus (HPV), primarily HPV type 16 or 18, anal cancer is preceded by high-grade anal intraepithelial neoplasia (grade 2 or 3). We studied the safety and efficacy of quadrivalent HPV vaccine (qHPV) against(More)
BACKGROUND Human equilibrative nucleoside transporter 1 (hENT1) levels in pancreatic adenocarcinoma may predict survival in patients who receive adjuvant gemcitabine after resection. METHODS Microarrays from 434 patients randomized to chemotherapy in the ESPAC-3 trial (plus controls from ESPAC-1/3) were stained with the 10D7G2 anti-hENT1 antibody.(More)
BACKGROUND We examined the baseline prevalence of penile, scrotal, perineal/perianal, and intra-anal human papillomavirus (HPV) infection in human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)-seronegative men who have sex with men (MSM). METHODS Data were analyzed from 602 MSM aged 16-27 years with ≤ 5 lifetime sexual partners. Serum samples were tested for antibodies to(More)
PURPOSE We have previously shown that CLDN4 (encoding claudin-4), a cell tight junction (TJ) protein, is highly expressed in human epithelial ovarian carcinomas (EOC) but undetectable in normal ovaries. CLDN4 has been identified as a specific receptor for C terminus of Clostridium perfringens enterotoxin (C-CPE), a nontoxic molecule that may disrupt TJ(More)
Because some studies have linked polymorphic variants of the estrogen-metabolizing genes CYP17 and catechol O-methyl transferase (COMT) with risk for hormonally related cancers, we sought to determine whether selected polymorphisms of these genes differed between women with and without ovarian cancer. From a population-based study of ovarian cancer, we(More)
