Cervical Cancer Article Summary

Wentzensen`sarticle as referenced below is based on a proposal about Dual-staincytology for either the Ki-67 or p16, which acts as the cervicalcancer screening biomarkers (Wentzensen, 2014). The accuracy and theability to reproduce the dual-stain cytology were evaluated andconsidered a part of an approximated ten freshly trained evaluators.The methods used were p16 or Ki-67 human papillomavirus slidesacquired from women tissues and were then masked by the same tenevaluators. The methods used also touched on the participantsundergoing efficient training process and proficiency testing(Wentzensen, 2014). The agreement arrived at measures on thepercentage agreement over the reproducibility of dual-stain cytology.Every single elevator was also used to measure the cervical neoplasiaand intra-epithelial detection.

From thearticle, the results showed a referenced evaluation of an exclusiveagreement that ranged between 84% and 91%. It was also noted that thedual-stain agreement over the positivity rose with a greater amountof active cells of either p16 or Ki-67 and the slides (Wentzensen,2014). Either the good and excellent p16 or Ki-67 reproducibility ofcervical cancer`s double-stain cytology is viewed as the notableperformance of clinical and young evaluators and is compared with thereferenced evaluations. The current findings in the article suggestedthat the p16 or Ki-67 evaluation of double-stain can be woven into aroutine cytology, but with limited training.

Having gonethrough the article, the author applied excellent evaluation of 10reproducibilities that lacked previous experience regarding thecervical cancer testing and assessment practice. Here, I would saythat the author paid more attention to the overall clinicalperformances that would later practice reference evaluation of thenewly practicing evaluators. As a result of this, the article gave asuggestion of p16 or Ki-67 evaluation of cytology, which I would havepreferred to focus more on routine laboratory practices on cytologywithout having limited training.
