  • Is HPV Testing Superior to Pap Testing Alone in Women at Risk of Cervical Cancer?

    In this registry-based screening study of women in Catalonia, Spain, a negative human papillomavirus (HPV) and cytology co-test at baseline was associated with a cumulative incidence of cervical precancer of 0.4% at five years and 1.3% at nine years, compared to 27% among women with abnormal HPV testing at baseline.

  • Oral Progestogens for Prevention of Miscarriage

    In this double-blind, randomized clinical trial, 406 pregnant women were randomized to dydrogesterone or placebo. There were no statistically significant differences in the primary outcome (miscarriage before 20 weeks of gestation; relative risk, 0.897; 95% confidence interval, 0.548-1.467; P = 0.772), which occurred in 12.8% and 14.3% in the dydrogesterone and placebo arms, respectively. The use of dydrogesterone in women with threatened miscarriage for the prevention of early pregnancy loss in the first trimester failed to decrease the miscarriage rate or increase the live birth rate.
