The aim of this study was to evaluate the association between the frequency of micronuclei (MN) and the cellular changes detected in the conventional Papanicolaou test. One hundred and seventy-four Papanicolaou test smears with cellular changes were examined. MN screening was done in cytopathological smears by counting 1,000 cervical cells in a light microscope. MN frequencies were significantly higher in the group with cellular changes compared to the control group (p < 0.001). The mean MN… Expand
Micronucleus and its significance in spectrum of cervical lesions
Introduction: Cervical cancer remains second most common cancer among the women worldwide despite effective screening methods. Micronuclei (MN) test on exfoliated cells have been one among tests usedExpand
Original Article Association between micronucleus frequency and cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade in Thinprep cytological test and its significance
TLDR
The combination of MN count with HPV DNA detection and TCT may serve as an effective means to screen precancerous cervical lesions in most developing nations. Expand

MICRONUCLEUS ASSAY IN PRENEOPLASTIC INJURIES OF CERVICAL CANCER
TLDR
MN assay is an easy, noninvasive, cost-effective method and can be used as a screening test for a large population and would be a useful tool in the diagnosis of cancer supported by other diagnostic techniques of genotoxic damage. Expand
The association between micronucleus, nucleoplasmic bridges, and nuclear buds frequency and the degree of uterine cervical lesions
TLDR
The data support the predictive value of MN, NPB and NBUD as biomarkers of genomic instability for evaluation of risk level of cancer diseases. Expand
Apoptosis and micronucleus in cervical pap smears: promising assays to increase the diagnostic value of the test.
TLDR
Micronucleus score was higher in invasive carcinoma and preneoplastic conditions of cervix than the normal and inflammatory conditions and there was a positive correlation between micron nucleus score and apoptosis in the study groups. Expand
Evaluation of Micronuclei, Nuclear Anomalies and the Nuclear/Cytoplasmic Ratio of Exfoliated Cervical Epithelial Cells in Genital Candidiasis
TLDR
Genital candidiasis is able to induce changes in the size and shape of epithelial cells, and the nuclear/cytoplasmic ratio and the frequency of micronuclei may reflect the DNA damage in the cervical epithelium. Expand
Assessment of the association between micronuclei and the degree of uterine lesions and viral load in women with human papillomavirus.
TLDR
Assessment of the association between micronucleus expression and the degree of cytological lesions and viral load in patients with HPV demonstrates the efficacy of micron nucleus analysis in monitoring risks to human health. Expand
Assessment of the association between the frequency of micronucleus and p16INK4a/Ki-67 co-expression in patients with cervical intraepithelial lesions
TLDR
The findings demonstrate the efficacy of p16INK4a/Ki-67 double immunostaining for histological samples with CIN 1 and the frequency of micronuclei in peripheral blood lymphocytes in PBL might be useful for detecting genomic instability in cases of HPV infection and CIN. Expand
Comparison of Pap Smear and Colposcopy in Screening for Cervical Cancer in Patients with Secondary Immunodeficiency
TLDR
The accuracy, sensitivity, specificity, and negative predictive values of colposcopy were higher than those for the Pap smear in detecting high-grade, cervical, pre-malignant lesions (cervical intraepithelial neoplasia: CIN ≥ 2). Expand

Micronuclei as biomarkers for evaluating the risk of malignant transformation in the uterine cervix.
TLDR
Results indicate that, in addition to Papanicolaou cervical cytological analysis, it would be useful to use micronucleus analysis to screen women who are at risk of developing cervical cancer. Expand
Significance of micronucleus in cervical intraepithelial lesions and carcinoma
TLDR
MN scoring on the epithelial cells of cervix could be used as a biomarker in cancer screening because it is an easy, simple, reliable, reproducible and objective test which can be performed on routinely stained pap smears. Expand
Micronucleus assay as a triage tool for borderline cases of cervical dysplasia
TLDR
Micro-nucleated cells as well as the total number of micronuclei show increasing trend towards malignization in cervical cancer, and advantage of combining both the ratios together does not confer any additional benefit in terms of sensitivity and specificity. Expand
Positive correlation between the frequency of micronucleated cells and dysplasia in Papanicolaou smears
TLDR
A retrospective study to investigate the frequency of micronucleated cells in cervical smears from women at high risk for developing cervical cancer, indicating that the MN frequency in exfoliated cervical cells may be an additional criterion for establishing cervical cancer risk. Expand
Association between human papilloma virus-type infections with micronuclei frequencies.
TLDR
An association between HPV type infection and higher MN frequencies is demonstrated, however, a larger controlled study with sufficient follow-up will be required to further evaluate the usefulness of this test in the clinical management of women with HPV infection. Expand
Prevalence of micronuclei in exfoliated uterine cervical cells from patients with risk factors for cervical cancer.
TLDR
The prevalence of micronuclei in exfoliated uterusine cervical cells was greater in patients with one or more risk factors for uterine cervical cancer than in patients without risk factors. Expand
Micronuclei in cervical smears and peripheral blood lymphocytes from women with and without cervical uterine cancer.
TLDR
It is suggested that MN are a useful biomarker of cancer risk and a positive linear trend between the MN frequency and increased cervical cancer risk is found. Expand
Elevated frequency of Micronuclei in uterine smears of cervix cancer patients
TLDR
Significantly elevated percent frequencies of micronucleated cells were observed for pre-treated cervix cancer patients compared with the control data; for different ageat marriage groups; in aged patients; in the weaker socio-economic groups and in those with more child-bearing and/or total number of pregnancies; though within group differences were not always significant.

TLDR
It is demonstrated that the criteria are successful in detecting excess micronucleation in positive controls and that other nuclear anomalies are at least as common as micron nucleation and that therefore there is the potential for extensive misclassification. Expand
