Cervical Cancer Hela Cell Osteopontin Gene Suppression Model and Detection

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2016.254
Pages: 
608-12
Synopsis: 
This research is to develop an osteopontin (OPN) specific siRNA expression vector and transfect it into cervical cancer Hela cells, in order to obtain OPN stable transfection cell lines, thus providing support for further study on the mechanism of OPN in cervical cancer Hela cells.

ABSTRACT


Objective: To build an osteopontin (OPN) specific short interfering ribonucleic acid (siRNA) expression vector and transfect it into cervical cancer Hela cells, in order to obtain OPN stable transfection cell lines, thus providing support to the further study on the mechanism of OPN in cervical cancer Hela cells.

Determinants of Cervical Cancer Screening among Jamaican Women

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2017.001
Pages: 
9-17
Synopsis: 
This study examined the association of six sociodemographic factors and three lifestyle practices with Pap smear testing among Jamaican women. Women who were poor and uneducated and had small family sizes were least likely to be screened and should be targeted.

ABSTRACT

Objective: To assess the extent to which six sociodemographic variables and three lifestyle practices of women are associated with Pap smear testing, given that cervical cancer is the second leading cause of women’s cancer mortality in Jamaica and that this cancer is preventable with the use of screening methods such as the Pap smear.

Synopsis: 
Clinicians in gynaecology are charged with driving cervical cancer screening but do they practice what they preach? This study looks at the knowledge, attitudes and practices of Jamaican practitioners as it relates to personal cervical cancer screening.

ABSTRACT

Objectives: The objective of the study was to evaluate knowledge, attitudes and practices with regards to cervical cancer screening among obstetric clinical staff.

Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia in a Cohort of HIV-positive Women at the University Hospital of the West Indies: Management and Outcome

Issue: 
DOI: 
10.7727/wimj.2013.223
Pages: 
313–7
Synopsis: 
This article identifies the risk of recurrence of cervical dysplasia in HIV-positive women. Results indicate that HIV increases the risk of recurrence but once women who are HIV positive maintain their antiretroviral agents and have good CD4 counts then their risk would be similar to that of HIV-negative women.

ABSTRACT


Objective: To determine the rate of recurrence of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) in HIVpositive women evaluated at the University Hospital of the West Indies (UHWI).

An Assessment of Knowledge, Attitudes and Behaviour Regarding the Human Papillomavirus

Issue: 
Pages: 
58–63
Synopsis: 
The rate of cervical cancer as well as poor screening practices led to the study which was conducted on the St George’s University campus in Grenada. The results showed lack of knowledge about the relationship between human papillomavirus, cervical cancer and the associated risk factors.


                                                                        ABSTRACT

Objectives: This report is based on a study conducted in February 2010 that assessed the knowledge and attitudes toward cervical cancer and human papillomavirus (HPV) in Grenada which has a high incidence of cervical cancer.
