Human Papillomavirus Prevalence in Women Who Have and Have Not Undergone Hysterectomies

We compared human papillomavirus (HPV) prevalence in an age‐stratified random sample of women who have undergone a hysterectomy (WH) (n=573) with the HPV prevalence in age‐matched women with intact cervices (women who have not undergone a hysterectomy [WNH]) (n=581) participating in a study at Kaiser Permanente in Portland, Oregon. Testing cervicovaginal lavage fluids for >40 HPV...

The Elevated 10-Year Risk of Cervical Precancer and Cancer in Women With Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Type 16 or 18 and the Possible Utility of Type-Specific HPV Testing in Clinical Practice

Background: Human papillomavirus (HPV) types 16 and 18 cause 60%–70% of cervical cancer worldwide, and other HPV types cause virtually all remaining cases. Pooled HPV testing for 13 oncogenic types, including HPV16 and 18, is currently used in clinical practice for triage of equivocal cytology and, in conjunction with Pap tests, is an option for general screening among women 30...

Baseline Cytology, Human Papillomavirus Testing, and Risk for Cervical Neoplasia: A 10-Year Cohort Analysis

Background: Annual Pap smear screening has been favored over less frequent screening in the United States to minimize the risk of cervical cancer. We evaluated whether simultaneous screening with a Pap test and human papillomavirus (HPV) testing is useful for assessing the risk for cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) 3 or cervical cancer. Methods: We enrolled 23 702 subjects...

A Prospective Study of High-Grade Cervical Neoplasia Risk Among Human Papillomavirus-Infected Women

Background: In case–control studies, smoking, parity, and oral contraceptive use have been associated with an increased risk of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia grade 3 (CIN3) and cervical cancer among women who are infected with oncogenic human papillomavirus (HPV). However, these potential risk factors have not been adequately studied in prospective studies. Methods: We...
