Abstract: Purpose: To evaluate the correlation between the expression of topoisomerase II alpha, active caspase-3 and infection with human papillomavirus in low-grade cervical intraepithelial lesion and in the normal cervix, and whether they might influence susceptibility to, or evolution of, cervical lesion. Patients and methods: Forty cervical biopsies patients with low-grade cervical intraepithelial lesion and thirty-two with normal cervix were stained by immunohistochemistry for topoisomerase IIá and active caspase-3 and were investigated for the presence of HPV on exfoliated cells by general primer GP5+/6+ PCR amplification of DNA. These findings were correlated with clinicopathological features of the patients including their clinical outcome after twelve months. Subjects provided written informed consent. Results: Low-grade CIN patients as a group had a significantly higher expression of topoisomerase II alpha compared to controls, without correlation to disease outcome at 12 months. Caspase-3 was expressed in 42.5% of CIN patients and in 15.63% without disease, and most of women without caspase-3 receded cervical lesion. HPV DNA testing was positive in 65% of the patients with cervical lesion, and in 59.4% of the control group and was not associated to the expression of topoisomerase IIá or active caspase-3. In the presence of a positive HPV DNA testing, women with cervical lesion had a significantly higher expression of topoisomerase II alpha compared to controls. Conclusion: Topoisomerase II alpha and active caspase-3 might be useful diagnostic and prognostic markers in low-grade cervical lesions, delaying a better follow-up.
Objetivos: Estudar a expressao imuno-histoquimica de topoisomerase IIƒ¿ e de caspase-3 ativada, marcadores de proliferacao e de apoptose, respectivamente, a deteccao de DNA HPV e a evolucao da lesao cervical em mulheres portadoras de lesao intra-epitelial escamosa de baixo grau (LBG). Metodos: Foram avaliadas 40 mulheres portadoras de LBG e 32 sem neoplasia cervical, diagnosticadas por exame cito-colpo-histopatologico, quanto a imunoexpressao de topoisomerase IIƒ¿ e de caspase-3 ativada e quanto a deteccao de DNA HPV por PCR consensual (GP5+/GP6+) em material de esfregaco cervico-vaginal. Os achados foram relacionados as variaveis clinicas das pacientes e a evolucao clinica das lesoes cervicais em 12 meses. As pacientes assinaram termo de consentimento livre e esclarecido. Resultados: A media percentual de celulas imunomarcadas por topoisomerase foi de 11,71% e 4,13%, no grupo com LBG e controle, respectivamente, com diferenca estatisticamente significante. Observou-se que houve expressao de caspase-3 em 17 (42,5%) e em 5 (15,63%) pacientes com e sem LBG, respectivamente, com diferenca estatisticamente significante. Foi detectado HPV DNA em 65% das pacientes com LBG e em 59,4% das pacientes sem lesao cervical, sem relacao com a expressao de topoisomerase IIƒ¿ ou caspase-3. Na presenca de DNA-HPV, a expressao de topoisomerase IIƒ¿ no grupo com LBG foi significativamente maior do que em fragmentos sem lesao. Nao foi observada diferenca quanto a evolucao da lesao cervical em 12 meses de acordo com a imunoexpressao de topoisomerase IIƒ¿. Com relacao a caspase-3 ativada, a maioria das pacientes com imuno-histoquimica negativa teve regressao da lesao cervical. Conclusoes: A imunoexpressao de topoisomerase IIƒ¿ e de caspase-3 ativada podem ser considerados marcadores de proliferacao e de apoptose em lesao cervical de baixo grau, sem relacao com a presenca de DNA-HPV.
