  1. Risk factors for cervical cancer in Colombia and Spain.

    Article - En anglais

    A population-based case-control study of cervical cancer was conducted in Spain and Colombia to assess the relationship between cervical cancer and exposure to human papillomavirus (HPV), selected aspects of sexual and reproductive behaviour, use of oral contraceptives, screening practices and smoking.

    The study included 436 cases of histologically confirmed squamous-cell carcinoma and 387 age-stratified controls randomly selected from the general population that generated the cases.

    The presence of HPV DNA in cervical scrapes was assessed by PCR-based methods and was the strongest risk factor (OR=23.8; 13.4-42.0).
