Purification and Characterization of Progenitor and Mature Human Astrocytes Reveals Transcriptional and Functional Differences with Mouse
The functional and molecular similarities and distinctions between human and murine astrocytes are poorly understood. Here, we report the development of an immunopanning method to acutely purifyExpand
Derivation of pluripotent stem cells from cultured human primordial germ cells
Human pluripotent stem cells would be invaluable for in vitro studies of aspects of human embryogenesis. With the goal of establishing pluripotent stem cell lines, gonadal ridges and mesenteriesExpand

Costs and benefits of different strategies to screen for cervical cancer in less-developed countries.
BACKGROUND About 80% of cervical cancers occur in less-developed countries. This disproportionate burden of cervical cancer in such countries is due mainly to the lack of well-organized screeningExpand
Strategies to prevent unintended pregnancy: increasing use of long-acting reversible contraception.
BACKGROUND Despite increasing contraceptive availability, unintended pregnancy remains a global problem, representing as many as 30% of all known pregnancies. Various strategies have been proposed toExpand
Safety, acceptability, and feasibility of a single-visit approach to cervical-cancer prevention in rural Thailand: a demonstration project
BACKGROUND To increase screening and treatment coverage, innovative approaches to cervical-cancer prevention are being investigated in rural Thailand. We assessed the value of a single-visit approachExpand
Expression of Pluripotent Stem Cell Markers in the Human Fetal Testis
Human primordial germ cells (PGCs) have proven to be a source of pluripotent stem cells called embryonic germ cells (EGCs). However, the developmental potency of these cells in the fetal gonad stillExpand
Expression of pluripotent stem cell markers in the human fetal ovary.
BACKGROUND Human primordial germ cells (PGCs) can give rise to pluripotent stem cells such as embryonal carcinoma cells (ECCs) and embryonic germ cells (EGCs). METHODS In order to determine whetherExpand
Hormonal Contraceptive Use, Cervical Ectopy, and the Acquisition of Cervical Infections
Background and Objectives: Several previous studies have suggested that hormonal contraception could be associated with increased risk of cervical infections. However, few high-quality prospectiveExpand
HPV‐based cervical cancer screening in a population at high risk for HIV infection
We determined the utility of an assay for 13 cancer‐associated HPV types in primary cervical cancer screening of Zimbabwe women at high risk of HIV infection. HIV antibody status was determined byExpand
