Incomplete HPV vaccination may offer some protection

(Boston University Medical Center) Minority women who received the Human Papillomavirus Vaccination even after becoming sexually active had lower rates of abnormal Pap test results than those who were never vaccinated. These findings appear in the journal Sexually Transmitted Diseases. (Source: EurekAlert! - Medicine and Health)

Concurrent oral human papilloma virus infection in patients with recurrent respiratory papillomatosis: A preliminary study
Thu, 24 Jul 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | The Laryngoscope
ConclusionRecent data suggest that less than 7% of the general population is HPV positive in the oral cavity. Our data suggest that the oral colonization rate is much higher in patients with AO‐RRP. Additionally, long‐term sexual partners of patients with RRP had a much higher rate of HPV positivity. These preliminary data may have implications for viral transmission and provide a framework for enhanced patient education as well as further investigation.

Tumor Cell Development: A Role for Viruses and Telomerase Activity?
Tue, 22 Jul 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | Advances in Tumor Virology
Telomere biology is an important aspect of human cancer, because the telomere dysfunction and telomerase activity are associated with genomic instability and cellular immortalization. In this article, we review the regulation of telomere dynamics and telomerase activity in virus-related cancers. Viruses may exploit these events to favor its replication and, therefore, may differ from non-viral cancers in this regard. Focusing on Epstein–Barr virus (EBV), human papillomavirus (HPV), hepatitis B virus (HBV), and hepatitis C virus (HCV), which concentrate the majority of the evidence regarding telomere biology and viral cancers), although other viruses are more briefly mentioned, it is noticeable that regulatory mechanisms of telomere dynamics and telomerase activity are virus specific.

Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Infection in Squamous Cell Carcinomas Arising From the Oropharynx: Detection of HPV DNA and p16 Immunohistochemistry as Diagnostic and Prognostic Indicators-A Pilot Study.
Mon, 21 Jul 2014 09:00:08 +0100 | Health Physics
CONCLUSION: Diagnostic methods based on the detection of HPV nucleic acids appear to be more reliable and objective because they do not require reading by a trained histopathologist. Furthermore, the detection of HPV DNA exhibits an improved correlation with survival, and therefore appears definitely more reliable than p16 IHC for routine use in clinical practice.

Cervical cancer screening at crossroads
Mon, 21 Jul 2014 00:00:00 +0100 | APMIS
Cervical screening has been one of the most successful public health prevention programmes. For 50 years, cytology formed the basis for screening, and detected cervical intraepithelial lesions (CIN) were treated surgically to prevent progression to cancer. In a high‐risk country as Denmark, screening decreased the incidence of cervical cancer from 34 to 11 per 100 000, age‐standardized rate (World Standard Population). Screening is, however, also expensive; Denmark (population: 5.6 million) undertakes close to half a million tests per year, and has 6–8 CIN‐treated women for each prevented cancer case. The discovery of human papillomavirus (HPV) as the cause of cervical cancer dramatically changed perspectives for disease control. Screening with HPV testing was launched around 19...
