Clinical Utility of Adjunctive High-Risk Human Papillomavirus DNA Testing in Women with Papanicolaou Test Findings of Atypical Glandular Cells (Report)

Clinical Utility of Adjunctive High-Risk Human Papillomavirus DNA Testing in Women with Papanicolaou Test Findings of Atypical Glandular Cells (Report)

A typical glandular cell (AGC) interpretations (1-2) and screening for glandular cervical neoplasia (3-7) remain some of the major challenges in gynecologic cytopathology. Even though most Papanicolaou (Pap) tests with AGC findings turn out to reflect a variety of underlying benign conditions, (8-10) a significant subset of AGC cases reflect underlying cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) […]

Human Papillomavirus Testing and Reporting Rates: Practices of Participants in the College of American Pathologists Interlaboratory Comparison Program in Gynecologic Cytology in 2006 (CAP Laboratory Improvement Programs) (Report)

Human Papillomavirus Testing and Reporting Rates: Practices of Participants in the College of American Pathologists Interlaboratory Comparison Program in Gynecologic Cytology in 2006 (CAP Laboratory Improvement Programs) (Report)

Since 1994, the College of American Pathologists (CAP) has used survey questionnaires to assess practice patterns in cervicovaginal cytology. (1-5) These surveys have documented the widespread implementation of the first 2 versions of the Bethesda system, reporting rates for various cervical cytology categories and important benchmarking data for quality assurance. In 2003, human papillomavirus (HPV) […]

The Value of Monitoring Human Papillomavirus DNA Results for Papanicolaou Tests Diagnosed As Atypical Squamous Cells of Undetermined Significance: A College of American Pathologists Q-Probes Study of 68 Institutions (Report)

The Value of Monitoring Human Papillomavirus DNA Results for Papanicolaou Tests Diagnosed As Atypical Squamous Cells of Undetermined Significance: A College of American Pathologists Q-Probes Study of 68 Institutions (Report)

Human papillomavirus (HPV) has been established as the cause of cervical cancer. (1-3) In the United States, cytologic screening has reduced the incidence of cervical cancer. (4) However, as a result of screening, many women are diagnosed with equivocal Papanicolaou (Pap) test abnormalities, currently categorized by the 2001 Bethesda System Classification as ASC-US (atypical squamous […]

HER2 Testing: State of the Laboratories (Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor 2) (Editorial)

HER2 Testing: State of the Laboratories (Human Epidermal Growth Factor Receptor 2) (Editorial)

It has been more than 2 decades since the first publication describing the potential role of HER2 in breast cancer. A variety of techniques were employed in the initial studies to assess HER2 at DNA, RNA, and protein levels. These studies, mostly retrospective, demonstrated that HER2 is a marker of poor prognosis and suggested that […]
