Cervical cancer is a malignancy of the cervix. Worldwide, it is the second most common cancer of women. It may be present with vaginal bleeding but symptoms may be absent until the cancer is in advanced stages, which has made cervical cancer the focus of intense screening efforts. Most scientific studies point to human papillomavirus (HPV) infection responsible for 90 per cent of the cases of cervical cancer. There are 7 most common types of HPV - 16, 18, 31, 33, 42, 52 and 58. Types 16 and 18 being the most common cause of the cancer. Treatment is with surgery (including local excision) in early stages and chemotherapy and radiotherapy in advanced stages of the disease. This new book presents important research in the field from around the globe.

This open access book gives an overview of the sessions, panel discussions, and outcomes of the Advancing the Science of Cancer in Latinos conference, held in February 2018 in San Antonio, Texas, USA, and hosted by the Mays Cancer Center and the Institute for Health Promotion Research at UT Health San Antonio. Latinos – the largest, youngest, and fastest-growing minority group in the United States – are expected to face a 142% rise in cancer cases in coming years. Although there has been substantial advancement in cancer prevention, screening, diagnosis, and treatment over the past few decades, addressing Latino cancer health disparities has not nearly kept pace with progress. The diverse and dynamic group of speakers and panelists brought together at the Advancing the Science of Cancer in Latinos conference provided in-depth insights as well as progress and actionable goals for Latino-focused basic science research, clinical best practices, community interventions, and what can be done by way of prevention, screening, diagnosis, and treatment of cancer in Latinos. These insights have been translated into the chapters included in this compendium; the chapters summarize the presentations and include current knowledge in the specific topic areas, identified gaps, and top priority areas for future cancer research in Latinos. Topics included among the chapters: Colorectal cancer disparities in Latinos: Genes vs. EnvironmentBreast cancer risk and mortality in women of Latin American originDifferential cancer risk in Latinos: The role of dietOvercoming barriers for Latinos on cancer clinical trialsEs tiempo: Engaging Latinas in cervical cancer researchEmerging policies in U.S. health care Advancing the Science of Cancer in Latinos proves to be an indispensable resource offering key insights into actionable targets for basic science research, suggestions for clinical best practices and community interventions, and novel strategies and advocacy opportunities to reduce health disparities in Latino communities. It will find an engaged audience among researchers, academics, physicians and other healthcare professionals, patient advocates, students, and others with an interest in the broad field of Latino cancer.

“Social Inequities in Cancer” is a compendium of articles that identify barriers and metrics on the topic of modifiable and unnecessary cancer inequalities. Social inequities have long been recognised as a strong contributing factor in health and cancer inequalities for the past several decades. Despite progress in cancer treatment, cancer incidence, mortality and survival vary markedly between and within countries. Globalisation, greater life expectancy, emerging analytical technologies, and the scalability of big data have revolutionized the vantage point from which social inequities can be studied. The focus of these articles is inequalities as they relate to cancer, with the inequalities ranging from the community to the global scale.

In the United States, much of the research is focused on developing new and very expensive technologies and drugs - often without a major therapeutic benefit. In resource limited countries, basic oncology care is frequently lacking. In addition, the benefits of various chemo-radiotherapy combinations for a number of malignancies are unknown as these populations have not been adequately investigated. For oncologists in these countries who have marginal to adequate resources, accrual to clinical trials is virtually non-existent to minimal, due to the complexities of their population and competing co-morbidities. As a result, there is a tremendous disparity in treatment outcomes for these populations, compared to those in developed countries. Therefore, we have asked a number of oncologists from different parts of the world to report their experience. Topics that will be covered include locally advanced breast and cervical cancer (India, South Africa), human resources for cancer control in India, systematic review of radiation resources in low and middle income countries, planning national radiotherapy services, building sustainable partnerships through the newly formed ICEC (International Cancer Export Corps), cancer disparities among American Indians, and training radiation oncologists in these under served parts of the world. Authors will discuss "lessons learned" from their populations, practical suggestions to address these disparities, and how we as a global oncology community can address, and mitigate these global challenges. The editorial by Dr. Coleman and myself highlights the invaluable contributions from our global contributors. Thank you for taking the time to read this special issue on global cancer disparities. We are all energized to begin addressing the needs of our cancer patients worldwide.

This book discusses the growing concerns and latest advances associated with cancer prevention. The prevention and regulation of cervical cancer are the most important concerns in public health strategies these days, given the fact that it is one of the most widespread and severe cancers affecting women, particularly in developing nations. Empowering women, acquainting them with general awareness, timely detection through feasible techniques and remedy of precancers using cryotherapy/LEEP are the possible methods for decreasing the chances of the disease. Continuous research has resulted in a significant decrease in the frequency of occurrence as well as mortality of cervical cancer, providing a hope for further advancements in future. This text will be useful for researchers, activists, doctors and practitioners who are ceaselessly working in this field for improvements.

Research in health of women who partner with women (WPW) operates in a context of multiple factors: local legislations, political pressures, community attitudes, methodological and ethical challenges in the study design and process, respondent identification issues, and funding availability. The reluctance to conduct research based on the above mentioned reasons results in lack of randomized control trials. As such, the risk of cervical cancer in WPW remains ambiguous due to the lack of data on specific aspects of its continuum. Secular trends in cervical cancer and sexuality inferences, as well as determinans and barriers in this nexus, are difficult to interpret. A meta-analysis of 73 studies of the empirical and vigorous evidence, current effort determines: (1) the risk of cervical cancer in WPW beyond the theory of papillomavirus infection; and (2) the barriers for WPW to preventive screenings. A "sexuality-oriented cervical-cancer research index" (SOCRI) is designed to inform the ratio of WPW involved in cervical cancer studies per country or region. The SOCRI indicates on how the research on cervical cancer in certain countries or regions reflects issues of sexuality. Firm conclusions await the results of additional studies that specifically address some of the methodological shortcomings of the previous investigations. At this stage we conclude that further research is essential to elucidate metabolic factors (leptin, Cu/Zn ratio), histological variances of the tumor, distant or central recurrence/survival ratio, and mortality rates based on sexuality choices. Likewise, country or state-oriented research would address the statistical challenges related to the undercounts of registered or civil WPW units in the census data.

The Epidemiology and Knowledge of Cervical Cancer in Zimbabwe

The Epidemiology and Knowledge of Cervical Cancer in Zimbabwe

The two systematic reviews explored cervical cancer prevention and treatment modalities for HIV-positive women, whilst the crosssectional survey assessed young people℗þs knowledge, attitude and practices concerning cervical cancer.

Chronic and persistent infection with human papillomavirus (HPV) is the most important factor associated with the development of cervical cancer. Cervical cancer deaths have been on the rise in recent years with 85% of about 270 000 annual deaths occurring in developing countries. The rise in cervical cancer trends in the past two decades has coincided with the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) epidemic especially in the sub-Saharan African region. With the advent of HIV especially among young people in most of these developing countries, the incidence, morbidity and burden of cervical cancer are likely to continue increasing. Although cervical cancer prevention/screening and treatment is available in most developing countries, challenges and constraints still exist when it comes to HIV-positive women. Most developing countries, Zimbabwe included, do not have adequate infrastructure, funds, human resources, proper guidelines, and policies, which facilitate the adoption of effective prevention and treatment methods for cervical cancer among HIV-positive women. Therefore, the first part of this study involved two systematic reviews to weigh current evidence on screening and treatment of cervical cancer in HIV-seropositive women. In addition to the burden in HIVpositive women, the rise in HIV-incidence and risky sexual behaviour (multiple sexual partners, early sexual debut and use of contraceptives) among young people (15 to 24 years old), pose as barriers to successful establishment and implementation of cervical cancer control initiatives. In Zimbabwe, there is underutilisation of available cervical cancer services (although some are expensive) due to lack of knowledge and information about cervical cancer, a patriarchal and conservative society that views cervical cancer as a women℗þs issue. Adding to these issues, Zimbabwe does not have a cancer communication strategy that focuses on cancer risks factors as a cancer primary prevention. The National Cancer Prevention and Control Strategy for Zimbabwe (2014-2018) highlighted that underfunding has resulted in health education on cervical cancer to be unstructured. Therefore, as Zimbabwe sets out to strengthen cervical cancer prevention with the launch of the National Mass HPV Vaccination drive in May 2018, a number of questions still exists; how can a culturally patriarchal society aid and accept vaccination freely? How can young boys, men and the rest of the community be integrated within cervical cancer prevention programmes? Are there opportunities for HIV-positive women in these initiatives? How can the issue of health inequity which is associated with cervical cancer incidence be addressed? Aim: This PhD study weighed current evidence on screening and treatment of cervical cancer in HIV-seropositive women in developing countries through two systematic reviews; and assessed the knowledge, attitude and practices of young people towards cervical cancer, prevention/screening, HPV and vaccination. Methods: The research design was an integrative approach, which utilised a combination of two systematic reviews and a cross-sectional survey. The two systematic reviews explored cervical cancer prevention and treatment modalities for HIV-positive women, whilst the crosssectional survey assessed young people℗þs knowledge, attitude and practices concerning cervical cancer. Study participants for the cross-sectional survey were recruited through a three-stage cluster design from high schools and universities in Zimbabwe. Knowledge, attitudes and practices were assessed using questions based and adapted from the concepts of the Health Belief Model (HBM) and the Cervical Cancer Measuring tool kit-United Kingdom (UK). Results: The study found that HPV Deoxyribonucleic acid/Messenger RNA (DNA/mRNA) testing (n=16, 64.0%), visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA) (n=13, 52.0%) and Pap smear (n=11, 44.0%) are the mostly used cervical cancer screening methods. HPV testing has a better accuracy/efficiency than other methods with a sensitivity of between 80.0-97.0% and specificity of 51.0-78.0%. In addition, the study found that sequential screening using VIA or visual inspection with Lugol℗þs iodine (VILI) and HPV testing has shown better clinical performance in screening HIV-seropositive women. Whilst radiation, chemotherapy, chemoradiation, and surgery have shown the possibility of effectiveness among HIVseropositive women, cervical cancer stage, immunosuppressive level, and multisystem toxicities due to treatment are associated with treatment completion, prognosis and survival outcomes. Those infected with HIV are of a younger age and have more advanced cervical cancer as compared to those who are HIV-negative. The majority of young people, 87.47% (656/750), claimed to know what cervical cancer is. However, only 43.14% (324/751) had ever heard of cervical cancer prevention/screening and 53% (398/751) did not know about HPVhow it is transmitted or prevented. Misconceptions regarding cervical cancer causes exist, with some young people attributing cervical cancer to use of detergents, certain foodstuffs and having sex with an uncircumcised man. Conclusion and Recommendations: This research not only reports on the current screening and treatment modalities for cervical cancer among HIV-positive women, but it also offers a lens through which government can generate behavioural changes around cervical cancer among young people. Although cervical cancer screening exists in almost all developing countries, what is missing is both opportunistic and systematic organized population-based screening. Cervical cancer screening programmes need to be integrated into already existing HIV services, to enable early detection and treatment. The study suggests a need to offer opportunistic and coordinated screening programmes that are provider-initiated to young women (from 15 years), especially those who are HIV-infected, to promote early identification of cervical precancerous lesions. Opportunities to include young boys and HIV-positive middle-aged women in the recently launched mass HPV vaccination programmes exist and can be utilised. Ring-fencing budgets or introducing cancer levies and investing resources in evidence-based screen and treat strategies for precancerous lesions in HIV-seropositive women and young people will reduce morbidity and mortality due to cervical cancer. Developing a standard cervical cancer primary prevention tool that can be integrated into schools can be a step towards addressing health inequity. Research on cervical cancer management of HIVseropositive patients focusing on the quality of life of those treated, the effectiveness of the treatment method taking into account CD4+ count and ART is required.

Cervical Cancer is one of the leading cancers among women, especially in developing countries. Prevention and control are the most important public health strategies. Empowerment of women, education, "earlier" screening by affordable technologies like visual inspection, and treatment of precancers by cryotherapy/ LEEP are the most promising interventions to reduce the burden of cervical cancer.Dr Rajamanickam Rajkumar had the privilege of establishing a rural population based cancer registry in South India in 1996, as well as planning and implementing a large scale screening program for cervical cancer in 2000. The program was able to show a reduction in the incidence rate of cervical cancer by 25%, and reduction in mortality rate by 35%. This was the greatest inspiration for him to work on cerrvical cancer prevention, and he edited this book to inspire others to initiate such programs in developing countries. InTech - Open Access Publisher plays a major role in this crusade against cancer, and the authors have contributed to it very well.

Dietary supplements and nutraceuticals such as Vitamin A and D, Omega-3 and probiotics are used as part of the cancer treatment as complimenting the main therapy. Several Nutraceuticals have shown to boost the immune responses, while emerging clinical studies and other research suggests that some plant-based agents may, indeed, impact late-stage cancer, influencing molecular processes corrupted by tumor cells to evade detection, expand clonally, and invade surrounding tissues. Advances in Nutraceutical Applications in Cancer: Recent Research Trends and Clinical Applications is an attempt to collect evidence and related clinical information of application of Nutraceuticals to be used in cancer treatment or compliment the cancer treatment. It contains 16 chapters written by experts in related field’s and covers many different aspects of the formulation and development of Nutraceuticals for cancer applications. This book covers efficacy, safety and toxicological aspects of nutraceuticals. It also addresses various novel drug delivery systems of nutraceuticals with anticancer properties, as well as nutraceuticals as supplements for cancer prevention. Features: Offers a comprehensive view of neutraceuticals’ role in cancer prevention and treatment Covers the applications and implications of neutraceuticals in prostate, colorectal, breast and gynecological cancers Discusses the principles of neutrigenomics and neutrigenetics in cancer prevention Explors the role of probiotics and micronutrients in cancer treatment and prevention Nutraceuticals can alter the gut microbiota. Gut microbiome undergoes changes during the disease status and followed by the cancer treatment. Nutraceutical’s role in proliferation and prevention of gynecological cancers, nutraceutical’s role in proliferation and prevention of prostate cancer and role of micronutrients in cancer prevention, both pros and cons, are some of the topics discussed in various chapters in this book. This book is addressed to scientists, clinicians, and students who are working in the area of Nutraceutical applications in cancer treatment.

This book summarizes the important developments in the field of cancer research, specifically uterine cervical/endometrial cancer and ovarian cancer. It highlights the recent advances in gynecologic cancer, such as next generation models of genetically engineered animal models or cancer cell lines, focusing on their significance for advancing our understanding of gynecologic cancer biology, prevention and treatment, and drug response and resistance. Cancer research in the area of gynecologic tumors has undergone an enormous transformation over the past decade, with a greater understanding of tumor biology, elucidation of novel targets for therapeutic intervention, and better recognition of genetic predisposition syndromes. At the same time, the recent advances in basic cancer research have provided key insights into all aspects of gynecologic cancer biology, including developmental pathways and the impact of lineage plasticity, understanding metastatic progression, uncovering the roles of the tumor microenvironment , exploring tumor evolution, and discovering new therapeutic approaches and mechanisms of drug sensitivity and adaptive response. Molecular Diagnosis and Targeting for Gynecologic Malignancy appeals to investigators, clinicians, residents and postdocs who are curious about new research on gynecologic malignancies. It not only presents basic and translational research, but also explores the generalizability of the evidence covering the interface between basic and clinical science. Furthermore, a number of the topics offer the basis for new ideas that have the potential to advance into the gynecologic malignancies. This book provides readers with state-of-the-art information that will help improve the lives of patients with these challenging diseases.
