  CERVICAL CANCER / MAJOR PROJECTS

Cervical cancer
  • Cluster randomized controlled trial involving 140,000 women to evaluate the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of a single-round of visual, cytology and HPV screening in reducing cervical cancer incidence and mortality in Osmanabad district, India in collaboration with the Tata Memorial Hospital, Mumbai and the Nargis Dutt Memorial Cancer Hospital, Barshi, India
  • Cluster randomized controlled trial involving 80,000 women to evaluate the efficacy and cost-effectiveness of a single-round of visual screening in reducing cervical cancer incidence and mortality in Dindigul district, India in collaboration with the Christian Fellowship Community Health Centre, Ambillikai and the Cancer Institute (WIA), Chennai, India
  • Studies assessing the determinants of participation in screening
  • Non-randomized controlled trial to evaluate the effectiveness of information education programmes in reducing cervical cancer mortality in Solapur District, India
  • Multicenter randomized clinical trial to evaluate the comparative efficacy and side-effects of single-versus double-freeze cryotherapy in the treatment of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN)
  • Multicenter cross-sectional studies in Asia and Africa to evaluate the test characteristics of cervical screening tests such as visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA), magnified visual inspection with acetic acid (VIAM), visual inspection with Lugolís iodine (VILI), conventional cytology and HPV testing
  • The performance of low technology visual screening in routine health care settings
  • Development printed and digital learning resources for cytology, VIA, VILI, histology, colposcopy and treatment of CIN
