To determine the relationship between HIV-1 infection and cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (IN) among women at relatively low risk for both conditions.
A case-control study comparing women with cytological evidence of IN (cases) with those without IN (controls) and HIV-1 serostatus as the principal exposure of interest.
A total of 4058 women attending two family planning clinics in Nairobi, Kenya between October 1989 and May 1991 were enrolled following HIV pretest counseling and informed consent.
Structured interviews by trained nurses and medical students were used to obtain data on social, demographic, contraceptive practice and sexual behavior variables.
A Papanicolaou smear specimen for cervical cytology and an endocervical swab for gonorrhea culture were obtained.
