RATIONALE: Examining biomarkers in abnormal cervical cells may improve the ability to detect these cells and plan effective treatment. PURPOSE: Diagnostic trial to detect specific biomarkers in abnormal cervical cells in women who have abnormal Pap test results.

Study summary:

OBJECTIVES: I. Compare the detection of transferrin receptor, epidermal growth factor receptor, and the MaTu-MN protein in exfoliated cervical epithelial cells from women with abnormal Pap test using fluorescent labeled antibody probe vs histology. OUTLINE: Patients undergo a Pap test and a colposcopy. Cervical epithelial cells are collected from the most abnormal appearing lesion. Cells are examined for molecular markers using a fluorescent antibody test. The presence or absence of these markers is compared to results of the Pap test and the histology of the cells. PROJECTED ACCRUAL: A total of 100 patients will be accrued for this study within 6 months.


DISEASE CHARACTERISTICS: Diagnosis of abnormal Pap test, as indicated by one of the following: Atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ASCUS) Low grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (LGSIL) High grade squamous intraepithelial lesion (HGSIL) Visible lesion on cervix by colposcopy PATIENT CHARACTERISTICS: Age: Any age Performance status: ECOG 0-4 Life expectancy: Not specified Hematopoietic: Not specified Hepatic: Not specified Renal: Not specified Other: Pregnant or nursing women allowed PRIOR CONCURRENT THERAPY: Biologic therapy: Not specified Chemotherapy: Not specified Endocrine therapy: Not specified Radiotherapy: No prior pelvic irradiation Surgery: No prior total hysterectomy
