Factors Predicting Persistence of Oncogenic HPV and Cervical Dysplasia in HIV Infected Kenyan Women
Modifiable Factors Predicting Persistence of Oncogenic HPV and Cervical Dysplasia in HIV Infected Kenyan Women
This study will utilize a longitudinal study design to better understand the natural history of oncogenic Human Papillomavirus (HPV) infections in Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV)-infected and HIV-uninfected Kenyan women, including the potentially modifiable (and non-modifiable) factors that are associated with progression of oncogenic HPV infection to clinical disease, including cervical cancer.
Frequency of oncogenic Human Papillomavirus (HPV) in Human Immunodeficiency Virus(HIV)-infected women with a normal Visual Inspection with Acetic Acid (VIA) at baseline
Incidence of cervical dysplasia in Kenyan women with normal VIA at baseline, and who are HIV-infected during 4 years of observation
Study Arms / Comparison Groups
Description: Kenyan women, some HIV-infected and some HIV-uninfected, VIA negative at enrollment.
* Includes publications given by the data provider as well as publications identified by National Clinical Trials Identifier (NCT ID) in Medline.
