PURPOSE Cervical cancer screening is an effective method for reducing the incidence and mortality of cervical cancer, but the screening attendance rate in developing countries is far from satisfactory, especially in rural areas. Wufeng is a region of high cervical cancer incidence in China. This study aimed to investigate the issues that concern cervical(More)
There is no consensus on the selection criteria for ovarian preservation in cervical cancer, and the role of neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) on ovarian metastasis (OM) is also unknown. A total of 1,889 cervical cancer patients with International Federation of Gynecology and Obstetrics (FIGO) stages IB to IIB who underwent radical hysterectomy, pelvic(More)
Growing evidence illustrates that aberrant activation of the epithelial-mesenchymal transition plays a key role in tumor cell invasion and metastasis. Transcription factors SNAI1 and ZEB1 regulate the epithelial-mesenchymal transition. To determine if SNAI1 and ZEB1 are involved in the metastasis of cervical cancer, we used immunohistochemistry to evaluate(More)
OBJECTIVE Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) for cervical cancer still remains controversial. NACT was evaluated to establish selection criteria. METHODS A matched-case comparison was designed for the NACT group (n=707) and primary surgery treatment (PST; n=707) group to investigate short-term responses and high/intermediate risk factors (HRFs/IRFs). The(More)
To identify new genetic risk factors for cervical cancer, we conducted a genome-wide association study in the Han Chinese population. The initial discovery set included 1,364 individuals with cervical cancer (cases) and 3,028 female controls, and we selected a 'stringently matched samples' subset (829 cases and 990 controls) from the discovery set on the(More)
PURPOSE About one-third of the world's total annual new cervical cancer cases are found in the People's Republic of China. We investigate the prevalence and clinical characteristics of cervical cancer cases in the People's Republic of China over the past decade. METHOD A total of 10,012 hospitalized patients with cervical cancer from regions nationwide(More)
BACKGROUND The safety of ovarian preservation remains uncertain in women with cervical adenocarcinoma and significant risk factors for ovarian metastases vary among different studies. OBJECTIVE We sought to evaluate the impact of ovarian preservation on prognosis in women with cervical adenocarcinoma and to assess clinical factors associated with ovarian(More)
OBJECTIVE Neoadjuvant chemotherapy (NACT) could affect the levels of squamous cell carcinoma antigen (SCC-Ag). This study evaluates the predictive value of pre- and posttreatment SCC-Ag levels in patients with cervical cancer who were treated with NACT followed by radical surgery. METHODS A total of 286 patients with Stage IB1-IIIB squamous cell carcinoma(More)
A large number of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) associated with cervical cancer have been identified through candidate gene association studies and genome-wide association studies (GWAs). However, some studies have yielded different results for the same SNP. To obtain a more comprehensive understanding, we performed a meta-analysis on previously(More)
