  • [Title] The Pittsburgh Cervical Cancer Screening Model: a risk assessment tool.
  • CONTEXT: Evaluation of cervical cancer screening has grown increasingly complex with the introduction of human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination and newer screening technologies approved by the US Food and Drug Administration.
  • OBJECTIVE: To create a unique Pittsburgh Cervical Cancer Screening Model (PCCSM) that quantifies risk for histopathologic cervical precancer (cervical intraepithelial neoplasia [CIN] 2, CIN3, and adenocarcinoma in situ) and cervical cancer in an environment predominantly using newer screening technologies.
  • DESIGN: The PCCSM is a dynamic Bayesian network consisting of 19 variables available in the laboratory information system, including patient history data (most recent HPV vaccination data), Papanicolaou test results, high-risk HPV results, procedure data, and histopathologic results.
  • RESULTS: The PCCSM compares risk quantitatively over time for histopathologically verifiable CIN2, CIN3, adenocarcinoma in situ, and cervical cancer in screened patients for each current cytology result category and for each HPV result.
  • Prior history also alters the CIN2, CIN3, adenocarcinoma in situ, and cervical cancer risk for patients with common current cytology and HPV test results.
  • The PCCSM can also generate negative risk projections, estimating the likelihood of the absence of histopathologic CIN2, CIN3, adenocarcinoma in situ, and cervical cancer in screened patients.
  • CONCLUSIONS: The PCCSM is a dynamic Bayesian network that computes quantitative cervical disease risk estimates for patients undergoing cervical screening.
  • Continuously updatable with current system data, the PCCSM provides a new tool to monitor cervical disease risk in the evolving postvaccination era.

  • [Title] Pelvic sidewall adenocarcinoma after definitive therapy for cervical adenocarcinoma in situ.
  • BACKGROUND: Traditionally, hysterectomy is considered definitive therapy for cervical adenocarcinoma in situ (AIS) in women beyond childbearing.
  • CASE: A 45-year-old gravida 2, para 2 patient presented with cervical dysplasia and on pathology review of the large loop excision procedure cervical adenocarcinoma in situ was diagnosed.
  • Final pathology revealed adenocarcinoma in situ with negative margins.
  • A CT-guided biopsy of the mass was consistent with invasive adenocarcinoma of the endocervical type.
  • CONCLUSION: This case depicts another example of the unpredictable nature of cervical AIS.
  • Despite undergoing definitive surgery, a residual focus of disease may remain leading to invasive adenocarcinoma.
  • Close follow-up is required of all patients diagnosed with AIS because the disease is poorly understood.

  • [Title] The presence of high-risk HPV combined with specific p53 and p16INK4a expression patterns points to high-risk HPV as the main causative agent for adenocarcinoma in situ and adenocarcinoma of the cervix.
  • Adenocarcinoma in situ (ACIS) and adenocarcinoma (AdCA) of the cervix are frequently missed in population-based screening programmes.
  • Adding high-risk HPV (hrHPV) testing to cervical cancer screening might improve the detection rate of ACIS and AdCA.
  • Since the exact proportion of AdCAs of the cervix that can be attributed to hrHPV infection is still a matter of debate, a comprehensive study was performed of hrHPV presence in ACIS and AdCA of the cervix.
  • Archival formalin-fixed specimens of indisputable ACIS (n=65) and AdCA (n=77) of the cervix were tested for hrHPV DNA by GP5+/6+ PCR-enzyme immunoassay (EIA) and type-specific E7 PCR for 14 hrHPV types.
  • Further immunostaining for p16INK4A and p53 was performed to assess alternative pathways of carcinogenesis potentially unrelated to HPV. hrHPV DNA was found in all (100%) ACISs and 72 (94%) cervical AdCAs, whereas none of 20 endometrial AdCAs scored hrHPV-positive.
  • HPV 18 was most prevalent and found as single or multiple infection in 68% of ACISs and 55% of cervical AdCAs.
  • Diffuse immunostaining for p16INK4a, a potential marker of hrHPV E7 function, was significantly more frequent in hrHPV-positive cervical AdCAs (19/20; 95%) than in those without hrHPV (1/5; 20%; p<0.001).
  • Immunostaining for p53, pointing to stabilized wild-type or mutant p53 protein, was significantly more frequent in hrHPV cervical AdCAs negative for hrHPV (p=0.01).
  • No difference in p16INK4a and p53 immunostaining was found between hrHPV-negative cervical AdCAs and endometrial AdCAs.
  • Hence, only a minority of cervical AdCAs displayed absence of HPV DNA and immunostaining profiles suggestive of an aetiology independent of HPV.
  • Since all ACISs and nearly all cervical AdCAs were hrHPV-positive, the incorporation of hrHPV testing in cervical cancer screening programmes is likely to decrease markedly the incidence of cervical AdCA.
