A random sample of 960 women aged 15-59 years enrolled in a population-based study in rural Uganda were asked to provide self-collected vaginal swabs for human papillomavirus (HPV) testing by hybrid capture assay. The intensity of HPV infection was assessed by the relative light unit (RLU) ratio in the specimen-to-positive control (PC) ratio. In total, 898 women (93%) provided a swab and 737 provided serum for human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) determination. HPV prevalence was 16.7… Expand
Self-sampling is associated with increased detection of human papillomavirus DNA in the genital tract of HIV-seropositive women.
TLDR
Analysis of self-collected vaginal swab samples improved the detection rate of HPV, suggesting that such samples might be of greater value than physician-obtained samples in studies of HPV transmission. Expand
Human Papillomavirus Detection and Genotyping by Hybrid Capture II in the Cervical Smears of Women at High-Risk for HIV Infection
Abstract The purpose of this study was to detect and genotype the high-risk human papillomaviruses (HPVs) present in cervical cells of women with or without human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)Expand
Prevalence and predictors of high-risk human papillomavirus infection in a population-based sample of women in rural Uganda
TLDR
Information on predictors of high-risk HPV infection and intention to receive a vaccine can guide future immunization initiatives for young sexually active women in rural Southwest Uganda. Expand
Detection of human papillomavirus DNA in self-administered vaginal swabs as compared to cervical swabs
TLDR
If validated, a self-vaginal swab method to detect cervical HPV DNA status could be utilized to triage women with indeterminate Pap smears and be a useful method to collect epidemiological data from large populations. Expand
Infection with human papillomavirus and HIV among young women in Kampala, Uganda.
TLDR
The prevalence of HPV infection is high among young women in Kampala, Uganda and Employment in the tertiary sector, lifetime number of sexual partners, concurrent pregnancy, and the presence of genital warts were significantly associated with HPV positivity. Expand
The interrelation of HIV, cervical human papillomavirus, and neoplasia among antenatal clinic attenders in Tanzania
TLDR
The association of HIV with HR-HPV types in older women may suggest that the principal HIV/HPV interaction in this population is for HIV to upregulate HPV persistence, leading to subsequent development of SIL. Expand
Human papillomavirus prevalence and cytopathology correlation in young Ugandan women using a low‐cost liquid‐based pap preparation
TLDR
The manual low‐cost liquid‐based Pap preparation is practical in this setting and offers an alternate method for local studies of HPV vaccine efficacy and highlights that HIV infection is a strong risk factor for HPV infection and resultant abnormal cervical cytology. Expand
Human papillomavirus genotypes associated with cervical cytologic abnormalities and HIV infection in Ugandan women
TLDR
Future studies should focus on whether current HPV vaccine formulations, that are limited to high risk genotypes 16 and 18, would be effective at decreasing the burden of cervical cancer in this population of women. Expand
Human papillomavirus infection in Rwanda at the moment of implementation of a national HPV vaccination programme
TLDR
This study confirms Rwanda to be a setting of high prevalence of HPV and cervical disease that is worsened by HIV and will serve as a robust baseline for future evaluations of HPV vaccine programme effectiveness. Expand
Distribution of High-Risk Human Papillomavirus Genotypes among HIV-Negative Women with and without Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia in South Africa
TLDR
The current HPV vaccines could significantly reduce HPV-related cervical disease; however, next generation vaccines that include HPV 35 and 45 would further reduce cervical disease in this population. Expand

TLDR
The results confirm the role of genitalHPVs, which are transmitted sexually, as the central etiologic factor in cervical cancer worldwide and suggest that most genital HPVs are associated with cancer, at least occasionally. Expand
Human Papillomavirus Infection in Women Infected with the Human Immunodeficiency Virus
TLDR
This data indicates that among women infected with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), there is a high prevalence of human papillomavirus (HPV) infections, and persistent HPV infections may explain the increased risk of cervical squamous intraepithelial lesions and invasive cervical cancer in HIV-seropositive women.

Tests of choice for detecting HPV from clinical specimens are based on nucleic acid probe technology and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and the Hybrid Capture System (HCS), which have proven to be accurate and robust workhorses for epidemiologic and clinical use. Expand
