ACCP Strategies for Supporting Women With Cervical Cancer

This report provides an overview of current issues relating to cancer treatment in developing countries, followed by descriptions of existing support for cancer patients in countries where ACCP has worked and the support provided by ACCP projects. Finally, this report provides recommendations, based on ACCP experiences, for the provision of basic assistance at the national or local level to women with cervical cancer, within the context of a prevention-based intervention in low-resource settings.

Cervical Cancer Prevention at PATH: Two Decades of Progress Toward a World Free of HPV-Related Cancers

Supported by a seed grant from the World Bank, PATH began to focus on cervical cancer in 1991. Since then, our portfolio has expanded tremendously, thanks in large part to grants from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. In this report, we describe our key cervical cancer prevention initiatives.

Cervical Cancer Screening and Treatment in Low-Resource Settings: Practical Experience From PATH

This report is part of the Cervical Cancer Prevention: Practical Experience Series on the RHO Cervical Cancer website. It examines the second component of a successful cervical cancer prevention program—screening and treatment of adult women for precancerous lesions—based on human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination demonstration projects that PATH conducted from 2006 to 2011 in India, Peru, Uganda, and Vietnam.

Detection of High-Risk HPV-E6 Oncoprotein in Low and High-Grade Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia (CIN): Emerging Evidence for Predictive Validity

This poster demonstrates the predictive validity of an assay developed by Arbor Vita and PATH. For this study, cervical swab specimens collected from women screened, diagnosed, and managed in rural settings in China were tested for the presence of HPV-16 DNA then examined for HPV16-E6 expression. Results confirmed E6 is a potential diagnostic marker. Presented at: 23rd Papillomavirus Conference and Clinical Workshop, September 1, 2006; Prague, Czech Republic.

Developing a Lateral Flow Strip Test for E6 Oncoprotein to Identify Cervical Intraepithelial Neoplasia (CIN) at Increased Risk of Progression to Cervical Cancer

This poster outlines the evaluation of two immunochromatographic strip test platforms for the best limit of detection: one uses an antibody colloidal gold conjugate which is visually interpreted yielding qualitative results, and the other uses an antibody paramagnetic particle conjugate which is read by an instrument yielding quantitative results. The resulting limits of detection of these two methods are compared to the target limit of detection for an E6 assay of ~50 pg. Presented at: 23rd Papillomavirus Conference and Clinical Workshop, September 1, 2006; Prague, Czech Republic.

Development of a Diagnostic Assay Based on the Binding of High-Risk HPV-E6 Oncoproteins to PDZ

A prototype of a novel diagnostic assay for cervical pre-cancer and cancer has been developed in both a sandwich ELISA-based and a lateral flow–based format (“strip test”). The test specifically detects presence of high-risk HPV-E6 and therefore promises to be of higher predictive value for cervical pre-cancer and cancer than other assays detecting merely presence of HPV. Presented at: 22rd International Papillomavirus Conference and Clinical Workshop, September 1, 2006; Vancouver, Canada.
