Latest Papilloma Stories
Studies currently available provide indications and a "hint” that precursors of cervical cancer can be detected and treated earlier, and consequently tumors occur less often, in women who underwent testing for human papillomavirus (HPV).
Human papillomavirus (HPV) testing of self-collected specimens may be a more effective way to screen for cervical cancer in low-resource settings compared to visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA) and liquid-based cytology (LBC).
Getting the human papillomavirus, or HPV, vaccine provides an important preventative benefit against cervical cancer, said a gynecologic oncologist from Baylor College of Medicine.
Researchers at the University of Michigan Health System have found a new indicator that may predict which patients with a common type of throat cancer are most likely have the cancer spread to other parts of their bodies.
Mathematical models used to investigate whether vaccinating females only, males only, or both sexes is the best way to achieve reduction in the prevalence of sexuality-transmitted infections.
In this week's PLoS Medicine, Johannes Bogaards of VU University, the Netherlands and colleagues use mathematical models to investigate whether vaccinating females only, males only, or both sexes is the best way to achieve the most effective reduction in the population prevalence of sexually-transmitted infections.
The results of a 5-year study by Dutch scientists indicate that a DNA test able to detect the virus usually responsible for cervical cancer should be combined with existing smear tests for more thorough preventative care.
A human papillomavirus (HPV), a member of the papillomavirus family, is capable of infecting humans. HPVs establish productive infections in the skin or mucous membranes. Most of the 200 known types cause no symptoms in most people. Some types can cause warts, while others can lead to cancer. 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...
