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. Presenting her research at the 31st conference of the European Society for Radiotherapy and Oncology (ESTRO 31) [1] today [Thursday],...

(Ivanhoe Newswire) — While the world still seeks out the cures for cancers, we may already have the solution to preventing 1 in 6 of them. In a study conducted by Catherine de Martel and Martyn Plummer from the International Agency for Research on Cancer, France, it was revealed that 1.5 million out of 7.5 million deaths from cancer were caused by potentially preventable or treatable infections. Using a systemic analysis to estimate the amount of cancers that could be contributed...

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. These new estimates say nearly 2 million cases globally could have been prevented if the infections had been stopped sooner. Publishing the findings in Lancet Oncology, the researchers who conducted the review looked at incidence rates for 27 cancers in more than 180 countries. According to their findings, there are 4 main 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. The study, conducted at the Breast Health Center of California Pacific Medical Center in San Francisco, included 119 papillomas diagnosed at core biopsy without abnormal cells. Imaging follow-up of a minimum of two years without surgical excision was performed on 66 lesions; no cancer was found in this...

Researchers at The Wistar Institute announce the discovery of small molecules that kill cancer cells caused by infection with human papillomavirus (HPV).  Their results, in both cell and mouse models, demonstrate that the small molecule inhibitors protect a tumor-suppressing protein targeted by viral proteins, thus killing the infected tumor cells. The Wistar scientists presented their findings in the April 20 issue of the journal Chemistry & Biology.  The researchers believe...

There are more than 30 to 40 types of HPV that are typically transmitted through sexual contact and infect the anogenital region. 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...
