Singapore, June 12, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - A team of scientists from A*STAR's Institute of Medical Biology (IMB) and Genome Institute of Singapore (GIS) together with clinicians from Boston's Brigham
Virtually all cervical cancers are caused by HPV infections, with just two HPV types, 16 and 18, responsible for about 70 percent of all cases.
Researchers at Moffitt Cancer Center have developed and tested in mice a synthetic vaccine and found it effective in killing human papillomavirus-derived cancer, a virus linked to cervical cancers among others.
Mount Sinai School of Medicine researchers will present several landmark studies, including data on treatment trends in late-stage cancer, HPV-positive head and neck cancer, a promising multiple
New findings from a large Danish database of cancer patients suggest that, even though the human papilloma virus (HPV) can trigger throat cancer, patients who are HPV-positive and are light smokers, or don't smoke at all, have a good response to treatment using radiotherapy alone, without the addition of chemotherapy with its consequent toxic side-effects.
While the world still seeks out the cures for cancers, we may already have the solution to preventing 1 in 6 of them.
New research shines some light on a potential point of weakness in the fight against cancer: One in six are caused by treatable or preventable infections.
Imaging surveillance is an acceptable alternative to surgical excision in patients with benign papilloma, diagnosed at breast core biopsy without cell abnormalities, a new study shows.

High risk HPV, can lead to cancer, in fact HPV infection is a cause of...
Bovine papillomavirus (BPV), of the Papillomaviridae family, is a group of DNA viruses common in cattle. The virus can cause warts of the skin and alimentary tract and in rare cases cancer. It is also though that equine sarcoid, a skin tumor, is brought on in horses and donkeys by BPV. BPV is a good model for the study of the papillomavirus molecular biology. Like others in their family BPVs are small non-enveloped viruses with an icosahedral capsid around 50-60 nm in diameter. BPVs have...
