OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to elucidate the role of genetic instability and LOH in the progression of cervical cancer and also to analyze for correlations between these genetic abnormalities and the clinicopathological characteristics of cervical cancers. METHODS Seventy-two DNA samples were obtained from 29 carcinoma in situ, 8 microinvasive… CONTINUE READING
