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.

Developing a Total Market Plan for Family Planning in Vietnam: An Innovative Public and Private Collaboration to Enhance Equity and Sustainability

Since 2009, PATH has been working with government family planning officials to engage stakeholders and apply evidence to develop a total market plan for family planning in light of funding shortfalls. This case study in Vietnam is intended to highlight lessons learned and recommendations for those considering similar initiatives in other settings. It is a sister document to the Nicaragua case study, Developing Total Market Strategies for Family Planning in Nicaragua.

Developing Health and Family Planning Materials for Low-Literate Audiences: A Guide

This manual describes techniques for communicating information to illiterate and low-literate audiences. The essence of the materials development process described in this guide is interaction with representatives of the groups for whom the materials are developed. Members of target audiences are the “experts” about the messages that need to be conveyed as well as how best to communicate these messages. This methodology may be applied to develop materials beyond the scope of health and family planning to other issues, such as water and sanitation, agriculture, and nutrition.

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.

Dialogues for Life: Training Facilitators in Dialogue-Based Behavior Change Communication for Reproductive Health

This training course was developed as a component of the Dialogues for Life approach, which focuses on preventing unwanted pregnancy and unsafe abortion and increasing women’s access to safe, legal abortion to terminate unwanted pregnancy. The course prepares participants to lead activities such as dialogue groups, magnification of personal stories of behavior change, and facilitation of referrals for reproductive health services.
