Table 4 The comparison of hTERC amplification at pre- and post-operation among patients with normal 2-year follow-up

From: The detection of hTERC amplification using fluorescence in situ hybridization in the diagnosis and prognosis of cervical intraepithelial neoplasia: a case control study

Pathologic Diagnosis N Percentage of positive cells (± SD%) Incidence of positive cases (number incident cases/total)
   Pre-operation Post-operation Pre-operation Post-operation
CIN LEEP 11 11.2 ± 4.1 7.2 ± 2.7* 72.7% (8/11) 18.2%* (2/11)*
Radical hysterectomy 14 45.7 ± 21.6 7.1 ± 2.0* 100% (14/14) 14.3%* (2 /14)
  1. hTERC, human telomerase mRNA component gene; CIN, cervical intraepithelial neoplasia; LEEP, loop electrical excision procedure. *P < 0.05 (compared with pre-operation).
