Antigen Description
Human papillomavirus (HPV) is a DNA virus from the papillomavirus family that is capable of infecting humans. Like all papillomaviruses, HPVs establish productive infections only in keratinocytes of the skin or mucous membranes. L1 is a major capsid protein of human papilloma virus. Infection with specific types of HPV has been associated with an increased risk of developing cervical neoplasia. Does not bind DNA.

Mailed self-sample HPV testing kits to improve cervical cancer screening in a safety net health system: protocol for a hybrid effectiveness-implementation randomized controlled trial


Authors: Montealegre, Jane R.; Anderson, Matthew L.; Hilsenbeck, Susan G.; Chiao, Elizabeth Y.; Cantor, Scott B.; Parker, Susan L.; Daheri, Maria; Bulsara, Shaun; Escobar, Betsy; Deshmukh, Ashish A.; Jibaja-Weiss, Maria L.; Zare, Mohammed; Scheurer, Michael E.

Background: Almost 20% of U.S. women remain at risk for cervical cancer due to their inability or unwillingness to participate in periodic clinic-based screening. Self-sampling has been shown to be an effective strategy for screening women for high-risk human papillomavirus (HR-HPV) infection in specific contexts. However, its effectiveness among medically underserved women in safety net health systems has not been evaluated. Furthermore, it is also unclear whether implementation strategies such as patient navigation can be used to improve the success of self-sample screening programs by addressing patient-level barriers to participation. Methods/design: TheProspectiveEvaluation ofSelf-Testing toIncreaseScreening (PRESTIS) trial is a hybrid type 2 effectiveness-implementation pragmatic randomized controlled trial of mailed self-sample HPV testing. The aim is to assess the effectiveness of mailed self-sample HPV testing kits to improve cervical cancer screening participation among patients in a safety net health system who are overdue for clinic-based screening, while simultaneously assessing patient navigation as an implementation strategy. Its setting is a large, urban safety net health system that serves a predominantly racial/ethnic minority patient population. The trial targets recruitment of 2268 participants randomized to telephone recall (enhanced usual care,n = 756), telephone recall with mailed self-sample HPV testing kit (intervention,n = 756), or telephone recall with mailed self-sample HPV testing kit and patient navigation (intervention + implementation strategy,n = 756). The primary effectiveness outcome is completion of primary screening, defined as completion and return of mailed self-sample kit or completion of a clinic-based Pap test. Secondary effectiveness outcomes are predictors of screening and attendance for clinical follow-up among women with a positive screening test. Implementation outcomes are reach, acceptability, fidelity, adaptations, and cost-effectiveness. Discussion: Hybrid designs are needed to evaluate the clinical effectiveness of self-sample HPV testing in specific populations and settings, while incorporating and evaluating methods to optimize its real-world implementation. The current manuscript describes the rationale and design of a hybrid type 2 trial of self-sample HPV testing in a safety net health system. Trial findings are expected to provide meaningful data to inform screening strategies to ultimately realize the global goal of eliminating cervical cancer.

Recurrence and Disease-Free Survival in Head and Neck Squamous Cell Carcinoma After Margin-Free Resection on Frozen Section: An Institutional Perspective


Authors: Hashmi, Atif A.; Iftikhar, Syeda N.; Haider, Rimsha; Baig, Nabeel N.; Asif, Muhammad Ghani; Irfan, Muhammad

Introduction The most important factor determining survival in patients with head and neck squamous cell carcinoma (HNSCC) is a disease recurrence. A high rate of recurrence was noted in previous studies conducted in Pakistan; however, these studies did not consider margin status as inadequate margin clearance leads to disease recurrence. In this study, we determined cancer recurrence in patients with HNSCC after nullifying this factor. Methods This cross-sectional observational study was conducted in Liaquat National Hospital (LNH) for a duration of three years. Data collection period was from January 2015 to December 2017. A total of 150 patients that underwent surgery at LNH for HNSCC with margin-free frozen sections were included in the study. Pathological tumor characteristics such as tumor type, size, depth of invasion and nodal status were determined. Results The mean age of the patients was 50.31 +/- 12.90 with mean tumor size of 3.38 +/- 1.76. Nodal metastases were present in 45.3% cases with 17.3% showing extranodal extension. Recurrence was observed in 66% of cases with median disease-free survival of 12 months and perineural invasion was noted in 12% cases. We found a significant association of disease recurrence with larger tumor size, depth of invasion and extranodal extension. Moreover, younger age (<30 years) and older age (>50 years) groups showed higher rates of recurrence than the middle age group (30-50 years). Similarly, univariate and multivariate analyses revealed that tumors with >= 1 cm depth of invasion and the presence of extranodal extension were more likely to have disease recurrence than tumors with <1 cm depth of invasion and without extranodal extension. Survival analysis using the Kaplan-Meier method for HNSCC revealed a significant difference in disease-free survival in patients with more than 2 cm tumor size and >= 1 cm depth of invasion than cases with <= 2cm tumor size and <1 cm depth of invasion. Conclusion A high rate of disease recurrence for HNSSC was noted in our study, despite margin-free primary tumor resection. Apart from tumor size and depth of invasion, extranodal extension was significantly associated with disease recurrence in HNSCC. This signifies a need for margin evaluation of neck dissection specimen in cases with extranodal extension.
