 Risk of Developing Cervical Cancer Not Influenced by HIV Status

The risk of developing cervical cancer in women is not influenced by presence of HIV infection as long as the tests were HPV negative and had they had normal cervical cytology, a new study reveals.

Researchers at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York City followed 145 women without HIV infection and found six cases of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia over a five-year period compared to nine such cases in 219 women with HIV infection.

"Specifically, through 5 years of follow-up, we observed no meaningful differences in the cumulative incidence of high grade squamous intraepithelial lesions or cervical intraepithelial neoplasia-2 between HIV-uninfected women and HIV-infected women regardless of CD4 cell counts", lead researcher Marla Keller wrote in the report.

The study details are published in the Journal of the American Medical Association.
