Knowledge about the prevalence of human papillomavirus (HPV) on a population level is important. We conducted a large population-based study in Denmark to determine the overall and age-specific HPV prevalence, and HPV type distribution in women. Liquid-based cytology samples (SurePath) were collected consecutively. HPV testing was performed with Hybrid(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe the study population and estimate overall survival of women with a serous "borderline" ovarian tumor (SBT) in Denmark over 25 years relative to the general population. METHODS The Danish Pathology Data Bank and the Danish Cancer Registry were used to identify 1487 women diagnosed with SBTs from 1978 to 2002. The histologic slides(More)
UNLABELLED Pituitary adenylate cyclase activating polypeptide (PACAP) is a neuropeptide which was originally isolated from ovine hypothalamus. PACAP exists in at least two biologically active forms, PACAP-38 and PACAP-27. The aim of this study was to establish the distribution, localization and smooth muscle effects of PACAP-38 and PACAP-27 in the human(More)
In contrast to the controversy regarding the terminology and behavior of ovarian noninvasive low-grade serous tumors [atypical proliferative serous tumor (APST) and serous borderline tumor], little attention has been directed to their origin. Similarly, until recently, proliferative lesions in the fallopian tube had not been extensively studied. The recent(More)
Surgical specimens from 62 patients with vulvar dysplasia and carcinoma in situ were morphologically investigated. Lesions were classified according to WHO (mild, moderate, severe dysplasia and carcinoma in situ) and according to Toki et al. (1991) (warty, basaloid, combined warty/basaloid or basaloid/warty types or mixed (warty, basaloid and simple)(More)
OBJECTIVE The aim of this study was to explore the screening histories of all cervical cancers in a Danish screening population. The intention was to decide suboptimal sides of the screening program and to evaluate the significance of routine screening in the development of cervical cancer. METHODS The study describes the results of a quality control(More)
Sixty-one women with vulvar dysplasia or carcinoma in situ were treated with local laser excision of the initial lesion and of the recurrences, and followed at intervals of from 3 increasing to 12 months. Recurrences were observed in 16 (26%) patients. No case of invasive carcinoma was seen. Patients with recurrences were significantly younger than those(More)
There is debate as to whether peritoneal implants associated with serous borderline tumours/atypical proliferative serous tumours (SBT/APSTs) of the ovary are derived from the primary ovarian tumour or arise independently in the peritoneum. We analysed 57 SBT/APSTs from 45 patients with advanced-stage disease identified from a nation-wide tumour registry in(More)
Serous borderline tumor also known as atypical proliferative serous tumor (APST) is the precursor of ovarian low-grade serous carcinoma (LGSC). In this study, we correlated the morphologic and immunohistochemical phenotypes of 71 APSTs and 18 LGSCs with the mutational status of KRAS and BRAF, the most common molecular genetic changes in these neoplasms. A(More)
OBJECTIVE A study was undertaken to assess the distribution of high-risk HPV-genotypes in high-grade cervical intraepithelial neoplastic lesions in Danish women. DESIGN Observational, cross-sectional. SETTING Danish data from a multi-centre study undertaken in 13 European countries. POPULATION 290 archived fixed biopsies with high-grade cervical(More)
