Equal prevalence of severe cervical dysplasia by HPV self-sampling and by midwife-collected samples for primary HPV screening: a randomised controlled trial.

Caroline Hellsten, Avalon Ernstson, Gunilla Bodelsson, Ola Forslund, Christer Borgfeldt,

<h4>Objectives</h4>HPV self-sampling is an option for cervical screening. The aim of this randomised study was to investigate the compliance, prevalence of HPV, and prevalence of severe dysplasia in a vaginal self-sampling group in comparison to cervical samples collected by midwives (control arm). The hypothesis was that there would be no ... Read more >>

Promotion of Cervical Screening among Long-term Non-attendees by Human Papillomavirus Self-sampling.

Avalon Ernstson, Ola Forslund, Christer Borgfeldt,

Cervical cancer is preventable through gynecological screening. To promote participation among non-attending women, self-collected vaginal samples for detection of high-risk human papillomavirus (hr-HPV) is an option. The aims of this study were to investigate the response of self-collected vaginal samples for hr-HPV testing among long-term non-attendees, to explore the attendance ... Read more >>

Cervical cancer prevention among long-term screening non-attendees by vaginal self-collected samples for hr-HPV mRNA detection.

Avalon Ernstson, Annika Urdell, Ola Forslund, Christer Borgfeldt,

Background:The efficacy of cervical cancer screening programs is dependent on the participation rate. To increase participation among women not attending cervical cancer screening, self-collected samples for detection of high-risk human papillomavirus (hr-HPV) may be an option.The aims of this study were: to investigate the response rate to sending a self-collected ...

Detection of HPV mRNA in Self-collected Vaginal Samples Among Women at 69-70 Years of Age.

Avalon Ernstson, Katrin Christine Asciutto, Johan Sturesson, Jonas Norén, Ola Forslund, Christer Borgfeldt,

<h4>Background/aim</h4>Cervical cancer is associated with poorer diagnosis among the elderly and pap-smear screening has a lower sensitivity. Self-sampling for detection of high-risk human papillomavirus (hr-HPV) may be an alternative screening method. The aim of this study was to analyze the response rate to vaginal HPV self-sampling and the HPV mRNA ... Read more >>

Self-sampling with HPV mRNA analyses from vagina and urine compared with cervical samples.

Katrin Christine Asciutto, Avalon Ernstson, Ola Forslund, Christer Borgfeldt,

BACKGROUND:In order to increase coverage in the organized cervical screening program, self-sampling with HPV analyses has been suggested. OBJECTIVES:The aim was to compare human papillomavirus (HPV) mRNA detection in vaginal and urine self-collected samples with clinician-taken cervical samples and the corresponding clinician-taken histological specimens. STUDY DESIGN:Self-collected vaginal, urine and clinician-taken ... Read more >>
